The flower arrangements, the decorations, the local wines, everything was just so exquisitely prepared and displayed. It all added so much to this fabulous day! Of course, you can never go wrong when getting married in one of Northern California’s magnificent vineyards. The Livermore Valley’s scenery was an amazing compliment to Josey’s stunning dress and Ian’s dashing tuxedo. The lovely green foliage on the vines and the warm sunlight gave us some divine colors to use as a backdrop.

It was a day filled with colorful themes. Josey’s red and gold garter symbolized the university both she and Ian attended. Can you guess where they went to school? Hint, hint it’s right next to downtown Los Angeles! These two were so playful through out the entire day, and the fun continued after the reception with a really sweet toast from both the maid of honor and the best man. One of my favorite moments was the money dance, it was entertaining, everyone had a chance to dance with the bride and groom and I’m pretty sure the love and generosity of this phenomenal wedding party will help get these two started on their great adventure together.

Congratulations Josey and Ian!! You’re a wonderful couple and I wish you all the most incredible experiences together!!

Ruby Hill Golf Club Pleasanton California Wedding – Michelle and Jared – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

What a beautiful day with Michelle and Jared!!! Their sunset wedding, at the Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton, California was a stunning affair. I was delighted and grateful to be the associate photographer for Kim James and share in this memorable day.

It was a such lovely day. Michelle looked so elegant in her gown. She was definitely the light of Jared’s eye as she gracefully walked down the aisle arm in arm with her parents. The bride and groom exchanged nuptials to the backdrop of a sublime sunset. The early evening sun crept through the beautiful courtyard columns to bless Michelle and Jared on their new life path together.

I had a lot of fun with the wedding party. They were so sweet to let me snap a few candid shots while they were getting ready. Even during the most stressful moments everyone looked beautiful and happy. We had the place all to ourselves at Ruby Hill so we were able to wander off and capture some gorgeous outdoor shots with Pleasanton’s majestic oak trees. These staple trees in California that can live well over 200 years and were a divine backdrop for Michelle and Jared’s unshakeable commitment.

After the ceremony we all headed inside for a delightful reception. The ballroom was intimate yet elegant. I especially loved the vases on the dinner tables with the bursting bouquets. Michelle and Jared’s first dance was so sweet filled with twirls and swirls and dips and applause. Guests were so excited to have their moment and spent the rest of the evening tearing it up on the dance floor.

Congratulations you two. Thank you for letting me take part in your joyous day. Michelle, Jared, I wish you all the best!
