Allied Arts Guild Wedding Photos in Menlo Park – Feng and Kevin

We were excited to come back to the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park recently for the wedding of Feng and Kevin. This lovely couple is from the East coast and met while attending school here. They picked a gorgeous Mediterranean venue that not many people have heard of for their special day – the Allied Arts Guild. We love how it’s full of hydrangeas, roses, and carefully manicured landscapes throughout. This was a perfect match to Feng and Kevin’s intimate wedding.

We felt very lucky to have clouds providing beautiful light:

The cocktail hour was a great, relaxed time for people to mingle while enjoying some poolside hors d’oeuvres:

A Wedding at The Old Mint in San Francisco – David and Ernst

We were introduced to David and Ernst by common friends and it’s been a blast getting to know them. For one thing, they are those rare people who like chocolate more then we do :) David is a talented chocolatier and creates the most amazing chocolates! As you can imagine I liked these guys right away :)

We loved how their engagement session turned out and had pretty high hopes for photography on the day of the wedding.

Their preparations took place at the Sir Frances Drake hotel and the ceremony with the following reception were held at The Old Mint on 5th and Mission. It was fascinating to get to know The Old Mint and learn that it’s the 3rd oldest building in San Francisco. Complete with a set of cool vaults for the cocktail hour, this venue was a stylish setting for this celebration.

How awesome is this ceremony setup? The tables allowed all the guests so have their cocktails and comfortably chat while waiting for the ceremony to start:

As wedding photographers, we LOVE emotion and there was no shortage of it on this day. You could see people tearing up during the ceremony and giving standing ovations to some of the touching reception toasts. We loved the intimacy witnessed on this day:

A Fairytale Wedding in Tiburon – Elina and Mordechai

Sausalito wedding photographer

We knew Elina and Mordechai’s wedding will be unique from our first conversation. Being the creative and warm-hearted people that they are, their wedding had lots of magic, colors, and beautiful emotions for us to capture.

The setting turned out to be a brand new synagogue that was described as a “labyrinth with amazing light”. Congregation Kol Shofar is in Tiburon and this was the first large wedding they’ve ever done. Guests flew in from all over the world and we had a great time documenting this fun day.

All of the photos were taken in close proximity to the synagogue and the reception took place here as well. Enjoy!
