Tricia & Jim - Mill Valley, CA

Sometimes, it takes a lifetime to see the love that found you in the 7th grade.  I can completely relate to Tricia and Jim's story who reconnected while walking on Bolinas Beach after moving back home after many years away.  On the reception table they had their middle school year book pages inscribed to each other framed.  My fiancé and I had lifetime crush growing up in the same hometown of Stowe, Vermont.  It took 17 years of flirtatious smiles, finally leading to a walk along the Embarcadero to get an Irish coffee at Buena Vista to connect us.

Tricia and Jim didn’t realize the love that was waiting in their youth.  Their love for surfing, finally reconnected these two, time lost not forgotten.  Jim and Tricia were married at the Mountain Home Inn and they provided wedding coordination and catering as well.  Many thanks to the Mill Valley Flower Shop, Chris McDonald Makeup and Minted for all of their beautiful work.

Katie & Drew - a ceremony amidst the redwoods...

Katie and Drew got married in Mill Valley in a redwood grove in the Old Mill Park with the help of the fantastic team of wedding planners at Dream A Little Dream Events.  I loved photographing this gorgeous couple in such a striking space, the redwoods reaching to the sky and soft light glinting through the canopy made it a truly beautiful moment to be part of.  These two know how to party!  Their reception was held at the Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club in the center of town.  Cocktail hour on the patio lead to festive and touching speeches and the catering by Sage Catering was exquisite.  Then the dance party broke out and continued for hours…

Amid the revelry, I loved these sweet moments alone with Katie & Drew.
