the simons / bodega bay wedding

This wedding. It was my final one of 2017, and it was an absolutely perfect way to cap the year. The love between Caitlinn and Lorrick (and the love surrounding them) is tangible and sincere and was a dream to photograph.

Not to mention, these two can style. a freakin. wedding. Every little detail was thoughtfully curated and most everything had a story behind it. Caitlinn wore a ring that her mom gifted to her on her 16th birthday, vintage jewelry which once belonged to a concert pianist in the '40s, and a blue garter which was worn by her grandmother, mom, and sister on their wedding days. Their ceremony was just a few feet before the waves of Bodega Harbour Beach, underneath an arch handcrafted by Caitlinn's dad who also officiated the ceremony.

To say it was an honor to document this wedding would be an understatement. I met them a year ago as new clients and left their wedding considering them friends. Congrats again, Caitlinn + Lorrick; thanks for being a highlight of my year <3

Okay guys, I'm all about Pinterest weddings. My own wedding was mason jar and burlap-filled because it was 2014 and #pinterest. But Alex and Dani's wedding was, instead, timeless. The green florals, black tuxedos, and neutral decor kept all the focus on the bride and groom, which made for an extra intimate and simply gorgeous evening. I am so honored to have been a part of it. Congrats, Alex + Dani!
