Megan and Anthony are two adventurous, fun-loving, family/friend-oriented people, so an intimate yet elegant wedding that allowed them to focus on quality time with loved ones was right up their alley. The two love to hike and bike, and especially love being amongst Northern California's redwoods (Anthony even proposed in the redwoods) so they chose to have their ceremony in the redwood grove at Piedmont Community Hall. Each detail of the wedding was meaningful to the couple and incorporated elements of both their individual personalities and their personality as a twosome. Guests munched on popcorn and sipped lemonade while waiting for the ceremony to begin while Megan's brother-in-law, a musician, performed songs chosen by the couple. Their dear friend & officiant began the ceremony with a Tibetan singing bowl, a nod to their trip to Nepal, and afterwards the newlyweds celebrated with their loved ones while enjoying a sake cocktail hour filled with lots of laughter and a few photos from their trip to Japan.
While a wedding is inevitably, first and foremost, about the two people joining their lives together, Megan & Anthony managed to make their loved ones feel just as important and essential to their big day. Everything from the olive oil wedding favors, made with olives from Anthony's parents' olive farm, to the DIY centerpieces made from the wood of an old fence from Anthony's childhood backyard (his father even created a custom brand for them!) was chosen specifically to make their family and friends feel loved and celebrated. Every aspect of the day was meaningful, personal, and unique to them, making the day one they will never forget.
Megan & Anthony - thank you so much for choosing me to capture such a meaningful and special day for you. It was an honor to be a part of it and I wish you both many years of love and adventures together! ♥
