I was totally smitten with this wedding from the beginning. It was only 4 months before the wedding that Laurel and Jason approached me to photograph their vintage-inspired wedding. "To a Wedding...Guess who?" was the invitation. This intimate DYI wedding came as a some surprise for most of their family and friends. Every detail was thought out. Laurel with the help of her bridesmaids hand-made everything from each invitation to her bouquet and the boutonnieres. The wedding was hosted at Laurel and Jason's good friends' apartment rooftop in San Francisco which was a perfect backdrop for their intimate affair. Did I mention how the weather was amazing with the sky so blue which complimented the blue color palette of the wedding. Following the ceremony, where Laurel's Mom and Dad escorted her done the aaisle and Jason's Mom expressed delight and pride for her son (see photos below), there was an intimate cocktail party where toasts were made and cupcakes, provided by Kara's Cupcakes, amongst other goodies were eaten. The reception was at Greens Restaurant with dancing and sparklers to follow in the ally outside Greens. Laurel and Jason, Thank you for bringing me in to capture your intimate wedding. You two are so kind and full of love for each other. Enjoy! xoxo, Stacey P.S. Doesn't Laurel look BEAUTIFUL?! Birdcage Beauty did a fabulous job on her hair and make-up. And Laurel's amazing figure can be contributed to the fact that she is an instructor for The Bar Method in the Walnut Creek and San Ramon.
Laurel and Jason elected to do a "First Look" where they see each other before the wedding. Love Jason's expression in seeing his bride for the first time.
A special thank you to Jessica Barrie who once again helped me capture the day. Jessica, you are an amazing photographer.
