A few weeks back we had the chance to photograph Inna and Alex’s wedding at the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center – one of the most popular Marin wedding venues. The day was full of sunshine, great celebration, as well as amazing details and decorations. We loved witnessing a more traditional Jewish ceremony at their wedding and it was an honor to be there for them. Without any further ado, here are our favorites!

Inna looked absolutely gorgeous and we loved shooting her portraits at the Legion of Honor:

The day started for us in San Francisco at Inna’s parents’ house where we photographed preparations as well as the couple’s First Look. Of course, I also had a chance to photograph these gorgeous wedding shoes:

This might be one of my favorite photos of the day: we were shooting bridal party photographs at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and Inna’s little sister just couldn’t contain her happiness and love.

We had a little bit of time for bride and groom portraits at the Osher Marin JCC itself, so we decide to walk around and see what fun settings we’ll be able to find. Inna was a great sport and was posing stoically, even when she was right under the sun:

Loved the vibrant, red brick wall on the property:

A traditional Jewish ceremony was held in the courtyard of the Osher Center under a simple and very elegant chuppah:

The wedding reception was held at the Hoytt Theater of the Jewish Center. The dinner room was lit by beautiful lights that added so much to the ambiance and made their first dance look absolutely magical:

Loved this beautiful moment between Alex and his mom during their dance!

This was probably one of my favorite ring shots so far! We went a bit crazy and used some unusual props for this photo. Can you guess what they are? :)
