TGIF! As promised, I'm sharing Darcy and Brian's Tank18 reception photos captured by the fabulous Chelsea Dier. Our vision behind their wedding was to create a cozy, whimsical, and romantic setting within an industrial, urban winery; a celebratory space where they could laugh, indulge, and dance among their loved ones who traveled near and far to be there.
If you've been to Tank18 before, you'll understand the image I'm about to paint: high beam ceilings, twinkling bistro lights, chalkboard art, and concrete floors. It's definitely a blank canvas for one to create the event of their dreams - which is exactly what we did for Darcy and Brian! We transformed the space with lush garlands, candlelit farm tables, and flowing wine. I mean, how awesome was our greenery installation crafted by Kristin of The Bow Collective!? It was the perfect accent to frame the bride and groom throughout dinner and toasts from their siblings. See for yourself below :)
Happy hump day friends! I'm excited to share photos from our first wedding of the season! Darcy and Brian hold a very special place in my heart, trusted me whole-heartedly with their vision, and were the most warm-loving and easy-going clients. I met Darcy through Avant-Barre, where I teach weekly classes in SoMa, San Francisco. When I discovered Darcy was engaged, I was incredibly excited for her and secretly hoped she would become one of my beautiful brides :)
From my first meeting with Darcy and Brian at Maritime Wine Bar (we love our vino), I instantly felt the sweet connection and companionship that the two of them share. How they met is another story... but let's just say it started with them moving in together as San Francisco flatmates before dating!
I was very lucky to work with two talented photographers for this wedding. Darcy's close friend from college, Seth McGinnis of Love Washer, captured all the unique moments on the wedding day from getting ready at the Battery SF to their intimate garden ceremony at Stable Cafe. I truly love the story Seth captured in the photos below: well-detailed, precise, real moments.
Because we wanted Seth to enjoy the party action too, we were fortunate to have Chelsea Dier as our second shooter to cover all the reception details. Stay tuned for more photos on Friday, June 15th!

Happy Wednesday friends!
Today I'm doing a walk-through for a veryyy exciting project I've been brewing up with the lovely Cate Beth - we're also working on a wedding together this June and I cannot wait!! Cate is such a bright light to be around and she motivated me to finally document my home life! While I tend to keep my private life a bit separate from my business (...although I love Instagram stories), I realized it's SO damn important to be connecting with my clients and couples on another level. I'll be sharing an inside look into my home, office, lifestyle, and daily work flow! If you have anything you are dying to see please, please let me know! I want to make this shoot fun, REAL, and meaningful for you guys!
And on that note..I'm leaving you with some recent photos that made me smile this week. Cheers!
