Sierra & Shawn // Swedenborgian Church // San Francisco Wedding Photographer

A year ago today was one of my favorite weddings I've ever shot. Not just because of how eclectic, intimate and humble this wedding was from start to finish, but also because these two became some of my closest friends till this day. I am truly so grateful to do what I do which leads me to some of the most amazing humans this world has to offer. 

Some absolutely favorite moments was the emotional first look. The officiant was the friend who introduced them to each other while they were both traveling on holiday in Germany. Their entire wedding marched down to the Presidio. Their first dance was to a song they wrote together. The dessert table was filled with Bi Rite ice cream, Nonny's homemade cookies, and vegan treats. Their all female vendors were also some of my favorite I've ever worked with and some of the most creatively talented and badass women I've gotten the pleasure to know. Florals and incredible table set up by Eleanor / Wallflower Design & literally the best food I have ever had by Gracie / Bread and Bones Supper. 

Shawn and Sierra's story is incredible and so much of their wedding incorporated their journey together in a very humble way. But I'll let the photographs show you.

Elaine & Tom's wedding was one of the most humble and love filled wedding day. I love when couples and their wedding day don't always go the traditional route. Elaine & Tom had decided to get their wedding bands tattooed on their fingers before their wedding day. During their wedding ceremony, they unveiled their bands by removing the ribbon on their finger and I even love the style in which they did it. Tom's bandmates sang the most beautiful song during their ceremony and my favorite; the Jewish tradition of breaking the glass, they did it together! Typically the male shatters the glass and I loved the equality built in of them doing it simultaneously. Each guest got to take a succulent home. A succulent that lived in a tea cup, a ceramic mug, or a stunning and miniature vintage vase. Elaine's mother foraged and gathered these vintage and unique containers for months to bring such a special element to their loved ones who came out to celebrate.
