These two high school sweethearts tied the knot on their 7 year anniversary! Despite the 95 degree heat, they couldn’t keep off the smiles on their faces as they said their vows privately before the ceremony, walked down the aisle with their pup Norman, carted off to watch the sunset, and ended the night with Vietnamese coffee.
If there was one word to describe S + M's wedding day, it's family. When deciding on their venue, they knew there wasn't a more perfect place to tie the knot than the groom's childhood home and farm that held so many fond memories. Their wedding day was all about uniting two families, with each of their two children standing by their side as they said their vows. As an interior designer herself, Stacy transformed this farm into the most gorgeous rustic chic venue with blush pink chalices and wooden lanterns decorating the tables, fresh fruit and lemonade stands for guests to enjoy, and lawn games for children and adults alike - the epitome of summer. As the sun set, they enjoyed a few moments together with just the two of them, surrounded by the cherry trees of his childhood. Congratulations S + M!!
7 years ago, Meghan and Ryan fell in love, two lifeguards working together in the warm summers of New York. When Meghan decided to come out to California to pursue her PsyD, Ryan knew he couldn't let her go and quickly moved out to be with her 6 months after she did. They settled in the East Bay, where they frequented one particular dog park - Piedmont Community Hall. Just 5 minutes from their home, they quickly knew that this redwoods venue would be perfect for their intimate wedding inspired by the 60s. When the wedding day came with a forecast of rain - in May no less - these two didn't let the weather stop them from celebrating a beautiful wedding where they exchanged rings brought by Chester their pup, sang along and danced to the classics, and ate Ben and Jerry's ice cream sandwiches for dessert. And of course we can't forget that Meghan was the most beautiful bride rocking a stunning boho BHLDN gown, feather earrings personalized with her new last name, floral embroidered boots, and my favorite, a tassel lined veil. Congratulations M + R!

No-waste was the theme of Tiffany and Ryan's wedding. Avid advocates of sustainability, these two didn't need much to celebrate what was most important to them - that today, they were getting married and got to celebrate their marriage with their family and friends. The minimalist industrial building of Headlands Center for the Arts served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding with its high ceilings and industrial lights, plus a gorgeous open kitchen. Check out the rest of their wedding below!
"Let's give them a minute," the officiant said when Elizabeth and Daniel finally stood at the alter together. They looked at each other with such emotion in their eyes, tears already welling up at the thought of getting to marry each other. It was such a beautiful wedding ceremony to witness at SF City Hall in front of family and friends, all celebrating with them as they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Congratulations E + D!
From when they first met, Alison always thought that Brad was her Ben Affleck from "He's Just Not That Into You." But of course they fell in love as all romantic comedies go, and when Brad proposed, they knew they wanted to elope with just their family and best friend. They didn't need all the fanfare, the centerpieces, the cake cutting - all they wanted was to celebrate such an important and intimate moment with each other. See the rest of their sweet San Francisco City Hall elopement below!
Jessica and Jose met through a mutual friend and quickly realized that not only did they click, they were also neighbors! They tied the knot on the beautiful orchard of Flower Farm Inn in Loomis, California, on a lucky sunny day when the past few weekends had all been rainy (and even hailing!) These two made their wedding day special with pieces of their own love story - a handkerchief from her grandmother, Forrest Gump shoes, and even a taco truck with a topping bar. Congratulations J + J!
You wouldn't know it from these photos, but stormy weather didn't stop V + M from celebrating a beautiful wedding ceremony on the Mendocino coast, as they exchanged rings overlooking the cliffside, the sounds of pouring rain at a near 45 degree angle pitter pattering on the tent. It was magical nonetheless, as we watched the lunar eclipse when night fell and woke up to a rainbow for a day after session on the coast. Congratulations V + M!
These two tied the knot underneath the majestic redwoods of Deer Park Villa (and yes, there were deer running about!) It was a day full of celebration and laughter, starting with the bridal party rolling into the venue in an RV and ending the night with the sweetest mother-son dance. Congratulations Ray and Carmen!
In a small town of just 1/6th of a mile square feet decked in antique alleys harkening back to the 1800s, Lindsey and Justin created a night of magic worlds away from the bustle of San Francisco. For these two who found a home in each other, their wedding was full of heartfelt vows, stolen dances, and teary eyes all around. Their amazing vision of transforming this historic schoolhouse into their own unconventional space was simply a stunning work of art. Throw in colorful smoke bombs and a balloon party, and you've got a night to remember! Congratulations J + L!
