The morning started off sweetly - with homemade cupcakes from one of the bridesmaids. The warm sun flooded the room with a golden glow and Otis Redding played softly in the background. The first of many nods to the City by the Bay.
They planned the perfect San Francisco evening for their guests. After the late-afternoon ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, their friends and family sipped wedding day cocktails as the sun dipped below the skyline. Cocktails became dinner, dinner became dancing, and dancing became the greatest love party of their young lives.
Robia & Dave were one of the very first couples to hire me to shoot their wedding. I can't thank them enough for taking a chance on someone new to the business. I wish them all the love and happiness the world has to offer.
PS - The lovely Ana assisted me at this wedding!
