I met Stacy and Trent a little over a year ago when they were home in Wisconsin for the holidays. I felt like I had known them forever, since their siblings are good friends of mine (and they are crazy similar to those wonderful siblings!) Stacy and I immediately clicked, we share a love for art and design and good photography and basically stated, we were a match made in heaven. Speaking of matches made in heaven, her and Trent would also fall under that category. Over a year ago we had talked about when they would get married and how it would all go down, at that point it was just two girls sipping a drink and talking wedding. She knew they wanted something small, low-key, and fun. A day of celebrating with friends and family and a non-traditional approach to the whole thing. When Trent proposed just two months ago, the ball got rolling and the plans started to fall into place. I was exceptionally honored to be able to fly across the country with my dear friend, Chloe, to capture their wedding day. Seriously, the greatest way to end my 2014 wedding season.
Stacy and Trent threw traditions out the door and opted for a laid back celebration in the California sunshine! We spent the morning hitting a few of San Francisco’s beautiful spots from the beach to Fort Point and ended our session at the park where they wed. Stacy’s dad walked her down the aisle and her mother officiated the perfect, short and sweet ceremony as their guests stood under the shade of a eucalyptus tree. Stacy’s dad and father-in-law were the ring bearers and they shared their own handwritten vows! After the ceremony guests headed down to the park to enjoy a feast of food, good conversation, and perfect California weather! As the sun set these two shared their first dance and ended the most perfect wedding day ever. I am so honored to close my season with two amazing friends and celebrate with them as they start off their life as husband and wife! Special thanks to Chloe for her help shooting this amazing day, a few of her images are mixed into this post!
If you happen to be getting married in another state or country, please reach out! I love to mix my love for wedding photography with travel, this post is proof of that notion and I will still be taking on 1-2 more destination weddings for 2015! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
