Golden Gate Club San Francisco Rabbi Wedding – Jess and Ross – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

A Jewish wedding is a very special wedding to photograph, but one where the bride is a Rabbi, is very special indeed. I felt honored to be photographing as an Associate Photographer for Sonia Savio. Her work is incredible and is always a pleasure to photograph for.

Jess looked absolutely stunning in her gown with lace accents sleeves, crystal sash, and satin A line silhouette. She wore simple pearl and diamond hanging earrings and had her hair tied back and let her long hair fall over her shoulders. Jess was a most beautiful site to be seen. Ross her beau, was so charming and kind and wore a classic black suit with a copper colored tie. There were no bridesmaids or groomsmen but a large supportive family.

The Golden Gate Club was were the Katuba signing, the ceremony and the dinner and reception were held. Jess and Ross’s huppah was an especially pretty lace that draped over top of them during their blessings and prayers. The large hall was where the dinner and reception were held and also where the alway fun and entertaining horah dance took place. I’m sure getting lifted up in chairs above your family and friends is really fun and ratchets up the excitement level of the entire party. Jess must have really loved it because after the horah dance she got up on stage where the live band was playing grabbed the microphone and belted out tunes with the singers. I mean, can you believe it, this Rabbi really loves to have a good time!!

Congratulations Jess and Ross you two make a beautiful couple and I wish you a long life of love and happiness.

Zoe’s Golden Gate Club Presidio San Francisco Bat Mitzvah – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

I was honored to be an associate photographer for Bruce Forrester Photography, with Jennifer Paschal at the Golden Gate Club. It is always a special feeling to be able to shoot for another studio and create wonderful images for them.

The Golden Gate Club is nestled in the hills of San Francisco’s Presidio district. Each and every time I photograph there I am amazed at how the building is transformed so perfectly to suit the special event that is held there. Young Zoe was such an adorable girl. She was ecstatic to have all her friends and family see her mature and celebrate her Bat Mitzvah. Her party was set up like a really cool amusement park. All the windows were covered and black lights were hung throughout the building so that everything glowed. There were so many super duper fun things for all her friends to do – basketball, spray paint party hats, air hockey, giant 4 person pac man, a photo booth, glow stick, party hats, a dj with dancers that choreograph moves for everyone, and a candy room only Willy Wonka would be jealous of. What made this bat mitzvah stand out from all the others, was a special pre entry red carpet. Before guests could even enter the Golden Gate Club there were a slew of photographers and videographers snapping away like paparazzi at the Oscars. This is where everyone was able to strike a pose for the cameras. One cute and quirky part of the party was the entrance to the club. Giant security guards stood blocking the doors so it resembled a VIP event. Each and every kid that went in had to be patted down and every girl was asked for their ID.  I’m sure Zoe will remember this day for the rest of her life. It truly was a phenomenal party that was not to be missed.
