Tatiyana and Jeffrey’s Wedding

Did you know that there are more than a thousand wedding venues in the San Francisco Bay Area? We are always super excited to work in venues where we have never worked at before. It’s such a thrill to scout the new location and find possibilities for some crazy creative portraits – often times we get all excited about a lamp, some door, or sometimes even a dark corner! We are super grateful to have wonderful clients who trust us to bring our creative vision to life and don’t hesitate for a second when asked to pose in unusual places. They trust us and know it’s going to be all worth it in the end.

There are also many venues that we’ve already worked at over the past five years. One such place is the Ralston Hall Mansion in Belmont. This setting has so much to offer for creative images: there’s of course the gorgeous ballroom, vintage mirrors, lamps, and staircases. Outside of the Ralston Hall there’s also a bamboo grove, rustic walls, fences, beautiful greenery, and lots of shade. The possibilities are truly inspiring.

Tatiyana and Jeffrey got married on the front lawn of the Ralston Hall. I absolutely loved how they included elements of Jewish as well as Persian wedding ceremonies – there was a beautiful Sofreh Aghd (a table beautifully decorated with symbolic items such as a mirror, bread, coins, walnuts, honey, and crystallized sugar) and they also included the traditions of honey-feeding and the breaking of a glass at the end. The day was warm, beautiful, and filled to the brim with energy.

Here are some favorites:

We love finding a great setting for setting up the First Look. This is the moment when the couple gets to see each other in private for the first time in wedding clothes and the emotions can be overwhelming.

It seemed here that Jeffrey was so smitten by Tatiyana’s beauty that he was afraid at first to touch her or the dress even while kissing her :)

Their reception had so much laughter and such great toasts that it was too easy to capture the awesome moments:
