Walker Creek Ranch Wedding, Daed and Erik

 Daed and Erik are a striking couple with terrific style – their wedding was 100% a reflection of their personalities, a weekend long celebration with all of their closest friends at Walker Creek Ranch in California. Their ceremony was held in a fairy-light lit barn, at the reception booze, food, and a lot of music brought everyone out onto the dance floor – especially the kids. The weekend brought one of the biggest storms of an already wet winter, but no one was deterred and this was one of the most heartfelt parties I’ve ever documented.

Rings are by Thorston, and the glittery mini-cupcakes (including vegan and gluten-free options) by Angel Cakes. I sampled.. one or two of them. They were delicious.

A Day We Hoped Would Arrive

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.” – Justice Kennedy on today’s historic ruling making marriage for all a legal right across the country.

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography

I never tire of photographing weddings at San Francisco City Hall. It’s a breathtaking building, there’s always beautiful light, and I love how so many different kinds of people are being married under that dome.
