Vermont-Farm-wedding-01

Way back in 2002, when my now-wife Amber and I moved to California, I drove a U-Haul cross-country from Ohio while Amber stayed behind and finished up her job.

Katherine & Adam’s San Francisco wedding

Katherine & Adam's San Francisco wedding
Moments before we left the hotel room where Katherine & Adam got ready for their San Francisco wedding, both of them took a big pull from the bottle of champagne that was earlier used for making Mimosas.

After seeing them drink straight from the bottle, I told them, “I like your style.”

Katherine replied, “I thought we’d be a good fit.”

Jessica & Rafael’s Bayonet Blackhorse wedding

Jessica & Rafael's Seaside CA wedding

I don’t know how Jessica & Rafael’s Bayonet Blackhorse wedding day could’ve been any sweeter. From the cards they exchanged at the beginning of the day, to the anticipation before their first look, to last dance, where they were surrounded by a ring of their friends and family holding hands, everything about it was full of love and fun.
