At the unique and beautiful Ramekins Culinary Institute in Sonoma, Nichole and Paul exchanged promises to love and cherish. Their amazing friends and family from near and far were determined to be here for the celebration. Paul’s family drove half way across the country to stay ahead of Hurricane Sandy and caught their flight in Ohio. Other guests flew in from Hong Kong, England, Canada and all over US. Over and over again, we felt so much of the love and support for Nichole and Paul that made us melt.

Nichole and Paul’s love story started from and blossomed into something extremely special over the next two years. We got to know them better during the engagement session and this time documenting their wedding felt like watching our friends getting married. The ceremony and reception was sweet and filled with personal touches. Nichole is super creative and we are in awe of all the paper works she designed for the wedding. The night turned into some crazy dancing, including Nichole and her dad doing Gangnam style and everyone doing the train, and ended with a sparkly send off for the newly weds. What a night!

P & N – Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your love story. We hope Fiji is awesome and wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

Another highlight of the romantic day was when Peter surprised Meagan with a love song during reception.

The big day started at the Fairmont San Jose, where Diana and Randy got ready and did their first look. As Randy turned around to see Diana, they both beamed with a radiant smile that set the joyous tone for the rest of the day. During the ceremony, it was sweet to catch the occasional hand squeezing and smiles they gave each other. Hand in hand, Diana and Randy promised to love, cherish and honor each other.

Sarah and Brandon got married at the beautiful Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay, just across the street from where they had their first date. Their ceremony was very emotional, and the amount of love and support surrounding these two was just amazing.

Sarah and Brandon met at a bar, only to find out they live on the same street in Redwood city! It is funny how fate sometimes works like this. When the time is right, the two that are destined to be married finally cross paths. The rest is history – Brandon charmed her with his good looks and Sarah captured his heart with her beautiful smile. Soon they knew they found their soul mate.

We are so honored to be documenting this special day. It was also so nice to see our past bride and groom Marissa and Tim at the reception!

Sarah & Brandon – Hope Belize is tons of fun! Thank you for having us there and we wish you a lifetime of love and joy together.

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Madison

Kristyn and Conor were set up by mutual friends. They are both foodies that love to travel, so it’s no surprise that they hit it off right away. Their wedding day was full of happiness and sweet moments, exactly the way they pictured it. One amazing moment was during the first look where Conor saw Kristyn in her wedding dress for the first time. His face lit up and he had a big grin on his face. Kristyn took his breath away and he knows he’s the luckiest guy in the world.

Prior to the ceremony, Kristyn and Conor did not have their vows written down. Surrounded by their friends and family, they spoke from the heart about their love and vows for each other. During the reception, the talented wedding party treated the guests with a nice choreographed dance. We were super impressed with the awesome dance skills.

Kristyn & Conor – Thanks for allowing us to be part of this special day and document your love. As you return from your honeymoon in Fiji, we want to welcome you back with some pictures we love. We wish you a lifetime of love and many more happy memories together!

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Madison
