Heidi & Ian. Bridals

The love they share is simple. It’s the type of love where she cooks & he does the dishes. The kind of love where he starts a sentence & she finishes it. It’s the kind of love where they are best friends & also a perfect team. Their love is the kind of love that has grown over years of being together, years of depending on each other & years of being blissfully in love. Their love is simple, pure & still fabulous after being together for 10 years! If their past is any indication of what their future holds, it looks like there are many wonderful & happy days ahead for them.

I had a fantastic time meeting up with Heidi & Ian for their Bridals at the Palace of Fine Arts. The weather was totally perfect & we had a great time! Heidi & Ian are sincere people whose zest for life is contagious! I am so excited for the opportunity to document Heidi & Ian’s wedding in November. I know it is going to be gorgeous!

Leslie & Martin. Wedding.

There’s something about the way they look at each other. The way Leslie’s eyes light up when Martin is near…the way Martin’s dimples appear on his cheeks as he talks about Leslie. They look at each other with such sincere trust, deep love & commitment. They look at each other as if to say, “I’ve been kissing you since High School & I still have the butterflies!” It is obvious that Martin & Leslie are a good fit & that their love will truly stand the test of time. They have seen each other grow, been each other’s rock through hard times & been the biggest cheerleader when the other needed it the most.

Leslie & Martin were married last month at the gorgeous St.Paul’s Cathedral in San Francisco. Their wedding was personal, touching & incredibly beautiful. Leslie & Martin had written love letters to one another that were simply mirrors of the other’s. Their letters spoke of their memory of meeting in High School, the joy they’ve felt as parents & their love & appreciation for each other. Tears rolled down both Leslie & Martin’s faces during the ceremony & a dry eye was hard to find among the guests of their wedding. That evening, friends & family gathered to celebrate Leslie & Martin’s new life together. And just like the first time Leslie & Martin met, the DJ pumped up the music & they danced the night away & spent the night in each other’s arms. Enjoy some pictures at the Palace of Fine Arts as well.

Leslie & Martin, I hope you know that I think the world of you. You are simply the most sincere people I know & I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to get to know you better. Thank you for ¬†letting me document your special day-I am so lucky to have such awesome clients like you! Here’s to your new life together…without a doubt it will be beautiful! xoxo…marielle.

Rikki & Tristan.

I had a great time with Rikki & Tristan in San Francisco for their engagement session. Rikki said that she wanted their pictures taken by the Palace of Fine Arts, but when we got there, everything was under construction and closed! In spite of the bad news, we headed over to the beach and some other awesome areas that turned out to be just as great. It is so cute to see how excited they are for their wedding at the end of March.
