Tina and Foti are truly a special couple! I first wrote about them after the amazing engagement session I did with them at AT&T park, which is going to be a tough one to top. And let me just say, the wedding did not disappoint either! From the pre-ceremony photos we did around the stunning Cal Berkeley Campus to the delicious Greek deserts the groom’s mother and her relatives worked tirelessly to make, no detail was left out. The backdrop for the day was the majestic Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension and the bride and groom both glowed as they tied the knot in this incredible location. The party that followed was full of lively Greek dancing and a few surprises from the darling bride to her new husband (including a special performance from the Cal Matching Band and a custom groom’s cake!). I feel like I could go on and on about this couple and their wedding and I wouldn’t come close to doing it justice. Tina and Foti, thank you for including us in your big day! We loved every minute of it!
Seeing two of your dearest friends say “I Do” is always an awesome moment to witness, so when one of my best gal pals married the love of her life and asked me to take the photos, I was ecstatic! Allison and Chris’ wedding took place at the gorgeous Healdsburg Country Gardens where they said their vows under an epic oak tree overlooking picturesque vineyards. The bride and groom were both radiant and I was having a blast capturing not only them but also every amazing detail they had put together for their big day. Following the nuptials, guests enjoyed a delicious family style dinner by the ever talented Urban Organics catering, under a canopy of trees on the patio outside the old restored barn. The evening concluded with dancing the night away to the amazing vocals of Pamela Rose and Sidepocket. Everything was perfect that day and I couldn’t be happier for these two!

The first time I met Cori and Matt, he was a groomsman at another wedding I was photographing. I vividly remember Cori that day because she was busy running around having a blast snapping photos of all of her friends. Because of this enthusiasm for photography, I instantly liked her! When I got a call a few months later asking if I would shoot their big day, I was thrilled. When we connected again for their engagement session, they began to fill me in on all the wedding details. I learned that Loki, their adorable dog, was going to be the “dog of honor” and that Cori and Matt had been busy hand crafting most of the details themselves. When the big day arrived, I was blown away by everything they had done! Surrounded by such a fun group of family and friends, Cori and Matt (who both looked stunning!) said “I do” amongst the tall pine trees in Berkeley’s majestic Tilden Park. The rest of the evening, they danced the night away inside the park’s gorgeous the Brazilian Room. All of the hard work they had put in showed how creative they both are and everything blended perfectly with the beautiful setting they had chosen. The entire day was filled with so much endless love and laughter and we were so happy to be there to help capture it!
