As I was driving into work today, I began thinking of our marriage and the event that started it all - Our Wedding! As a wedding photographer, I thought how great it would be for me to share a little about my wedding that took place 6 years ago.
We were married in The Secret Garden at Valley Oak Nursery, Brentwood, CA. It was 106 degrees outside and we were hot! What a way to begin our union together, hot and sweaty! :) We hired, Julio Duffoo to photograph our wedding and we were not let down! He has become a great friend since our wedding and still thank him to this day for his creative eye and helping to make the memory our day special. Another great friend, JP Langlands, also attended our wedding and contributed his photographic eye to our day. They are both great friends and wonderful photographers. Check out their work when you have a moment...
Laura and I had a vision of what we wanted our wedding to be. A small, outdoor garden wedding with close friends and family at our side. We endured the hot day and tied the knot at 4:00PM. As we look back on our wedding day, we can honestly say that we wouldn't change a thing. We were sooo happy... (and still are!). At sundown, after great food, sangria and cigars, we moved the party to The Tonga Room at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. We drank tasty tropical drinks and danced the night away to the live band and rainstorms... Yes, they have indoor rainstorms there! I highly suggest going to the Tonga Room if you haven't been. It's a fun time. When it was time to turn in for the night, we just walked upstairs to our amazing room in the Fairmont. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back and do it all over again! Hmmmm. Maybe we should?!
Here are just a few photo's from our day:
LAURA GETTING READY
SHE WAS SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!
Laura walked down the Aisle to "The Very Thought of You" by Nat King Cole. I tried so hard to hold my composure, but I couldn't...
