Rachel & Blake Oakland Temple Wedding

Rachel & Blake had a sweet, romantic wedding at the Oakland Temple last fall. They were the most laid back couple and I absolutely love that in my couples. Rachel’s veil flew off in the wind as the exited the temple doors and Rachel was just so darn happy to be married that it didn’t phase her one bit! They spent the day having a blast with their family and friends.

I loved their clean, soft color palate, and the San Ramon Wedgewood was a great place for their wedding reception and ring ceremony. Rachel & Blake made my job so easy because they are just so in love with each other and so darn photogenic! Congratulations to Rachel & Blake! Here are a handful of my favorites from their special day.

Are YOU getting married in the Oakland Temple this year? I’ve shot over 100 weddings there (!!!!) and I’d love to shoot yours if that’s where you are saying “I DO!” this year.

Alexis & Leland’s Mt Palomar Winery Wedding

Alexis & Leland had an absolutely LOVELY wedding at Mt. Palomar in Temecula last fall. Their wedding was so sweet, so thoughtful and honestly I’ve never been to a wedding with a better dance party! Alexis & Leland are kind, loving and genuine people and their wedding was filled with family and friends who love those two so deeply. One of the best parts of my job is to see people in love AND to witness how much their families and friends adore them. Here are some of my favorites from their incredible day!

Joz & Austen. Wente Vineyards Wedding.

Joz & Austen’s wedding was held at Wente Vineyards in Livermore this summer. Their day was so much fun, so beautiful and an absolute blast to photograph. Joz & Austen are just the happiest, most wonderful couple you’ve ever met & I was thrilled to document their day. The team at Wente Vineyards was so professional and so lovely to work with. They made Joz & Austen’s wedding there so gorgeous!
From start to end, this wedding was an absolute dream. Here are my favorites from their classy, fun and fabulous summer wedding…

Greg & Erica. Elk Grove Wedding.

Ohhhhhhh this wedding. A wedding where the late summer sun still illuminated everything with golden light. A wedding where the bride & groom cried together with their families, cried together with each other, laughed with their guests and sincerely loved every single person there. A wedding where the couple was simply just so in love. Basically, a perfect wedding. Erica & Greg held a late summer wedding in Elk Grove at a family member’s incredible home. Under a giant tree, they gathered with their families and exchanged vows in the most picturesque setting. They spent the evening dancing, chatting, laughing…and in between it all, you could see Erica put her arm around family members to sincerely thank them…you could see Greg holding Erica’s fathers hand…you could hear Greg & Erica making sure all their guests were comfortable and happy. Greg & Erica are a couple who put others before themselves and it was such a sweet thing to witness that during the wedding day. Their wedding day was absolutely lovely but I am completely being honest when I say that their attitudes of love and appreciation for those around them was my favorite memory from their day.

Every detail was pure perfection because of Ramona from Simple Country Weddings. I’ve done a few weddings where Ramona was the coordinator and she is fantastic! The reception was held outdoors. There was a food truck, professional cartoonists drawing caricatures, mini french fries, gorgeous GORGEOUS flowers, and a great day and evening for everyone.

Greg & Erica, thank you so much for letting me photograph your emotional, beautiful and fun day. You are a wonderful couple & I loved being able to capture all of the perfection that was your wedding. Wishing you all the love in the world! XOXO, marielle.

Eliana & Daniel. St. Ignatius San Francisco Wedding.

Eliana & Daniel are two people who are as sweet as pie & crazy in love! I adored photographing their special Autumn wedding last year. They were married at St.Ignatius in San Francisco and then their reception was held at a winery on Treasure Island. One thing that I’ve realized the more weddings I’ve photographed is that while decorations and DIY things make the wedding lovely, there isn’t anything as perfect as photographing a couple who have truly found their soul mate. This wedding was downright gorgeous but there wasn’t anything as perfect as the love that Eliana & Daniel have for each other.

Autumn in the Bay Area is in my opinion the most gorgeous time of year. The weather is almost always gorgeous that time of year! Eliana & Daniel’s wedding day was overcast and so lovely. We were able to spend lots of time after their ceremony hitting some amazing San Francisco locations for photographs, which I am always happy about! I love the shots we got in the forest in the Presidio. We also went to Crissy Field for bridal party and family formal photos. After photos, we headed to The Winery SF for their reception. It was filled with love, laughter and lots of wine (as all winery weddings should be!) All in all, it was a gorgeous day for two beautiful people.

Eliana & Daniel-thank you for choosing me to photograph your beautiful and special day! You were so easy to photograph because your love for each other makes you both glow. Wishing you the very best in your lives together! XOXO, marielle.
