A rabbi walks into a bar and a guy starts talking to her. He smiles, she smiles and they start something very special. This is the true story of how Sarah and Eric met! We are honored be there to document their wedding at the CuriOdyssey Museum in San Mateo. This is our first timing shooting at this unique location!

Sarah has a beaming smile that just brightens the room and Eric has a quirky sense of humor that makes them so cute together.

The biggest treat was definitely the wedding shtick where their friends and family did several amazing performances. Whether it was reciting poems, choreographed dancing, playing games, acting, macgic show, stand up comedy, or doing “All the Single Ladies” better than Justin Timberlake in SNL, the group of talent among their friends was so amazing! This brought so much joy and laughter that made this wedding so fun and special.

Here are some of our favorite pictures to share. Please enjoy!

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

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 chemistry.com 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.

Under the star-filled sky in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains, Stephanie and Wynn promised to love and cherish each other forever. Their love story started from Myspace, and soon they bonded over similar music tastes. Their wedding was laid back, unique and sweet, which is exactly the words we feel best describes them. In addition to the great scenery and delicious food, the guests were also treated with specialty brewed beers made just for their big day! There were some awesome beer names, our favorite being “To Hop and to Hold IPA.”

Stephanie & Wynn – thank you for being so kind and thoughtful. It was truly a joy to document your wedding day. We wish you two a lifetime of love and happiness!

much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Madison
