We’ve had a truly exciting last couple of weeks and we’re glad to be back home now, at least for the foreseeable future. There were 4 wedding shoots (one in Hawaii!), a camping trip to Nevada, and even a trash-the-dress photo session! In fact, we’ve hardly been around enough to catch up on processing all this awesomeness. Well, we’re finally home and we’re ready to dig in, add all the finishing touches to the photos, and share all of these recent events on our blog. Get ready for the ride!

First up we have the spectacular wedding of Stephanie and Jamie which took place at the Bently Reserve in downtown San Francisco. These guys really made certain that their event will be phenomenal in every way, and they did it all remotely by planning it all the way from Nashville, Tennessee. Huge props to them for succeeding with such an elaborate event – we know from experience that it takes much hard work and dedication. From the grand ceremony and reception which included special lighting and beautiful decorations to the fun bridal party of 14, this Bently Reserve wedding was exquisite.

The lighting and catering companies had to work extra fast during the cocktail hour to change the room over completely to the new look. The special lighting for this wedding was provided by Got Light?, a local company which excels in bringing people’s imagination for their events into reality. The music services were expertly handled by Mark Haggerty of Denon & Doyle Entertainment, yummy catering was provided by Checkers Catering in Livermore, and the beautiful flowers were provided by Edmond’s Plaza Florist, Inc.

We hope you enjoy this wedding:
