Wedding_FloryPhoto_001

Carrie + Chris …. Words do very little to describe the sweetness that is Carrie and Chris. These two love for one another is so very real and inspiring and it was such an honor to capture them and their friends on family on their special day. Doesn’t hurt that their wedding was held at the beautiful Ahwahnee Hotel in the Yosemite Valley. Carrie and Chris’s big day was all about love, family and some seriously good food. Their day included all the right touches, from Carrie’s Amy Kuschel dress and Jimmy Choo shoes to vintage bangles and brooches belonging to her great-grandmother, the day was centered around elegance and sophistication. Be sure to scroll all the way down to read the couples notes on their destination wedding.

This past summer we had the privilege to photograph Christina and Carl’s romantic city chic San Francisco Wedding at the Flood Mansion. Only Kathryn from Dream a Little Dream Events could pull off a Wedding this stunning in under 6 months. I loved everything about this wedding from the beautiful flowers by Natalie Bowen to the AMAZING food by Betty Zlathchin Catering, did you see those beet lollipop’s?!?!?  The Wedding was a great celebration of love, family, friends, & amazing food and wine. Enjoy the pics and be sure to scroll to the bottom to read about Christina and Carl’s thoughts from the day on why they think you should hire a wedding coordinator and take engagement pics.

001_wedding_holman_ranch_floryphoto

Krystal and Ryan were married at the stunning Holman Ranch and we loved everything about this venue.  One of our favorite things from the day were the florals done by Amanda Seely at laughin’ gal floral.  She grows everything she uses herself on her farm! Amazing!  Not only were they beautiful but they also smelled great. I also have to give major props to Krystal because when we couldn’t get a cart to take us up the hill she hiked it with ease and then when we got to the top and the gate was locked, she hoped the barbed wire fence like a pro and in a wedding dress! Grapes of Wrath Catering did a great job with the local and sustainable menu and their dessert bar was a hit. Thank you so much Krystal and Ryan for having us photograph your wedding and enjoy the pics!

Let me just start by saying that I LOVE Natalie and Seth and I am so excited for this wedding this coming summer.  Natalie is one of our favorite florists and it is such a honor to be shooting her wedding.  I knew when they rolled up in the vintage mercedes convertible that this was going to be a great session.  Both Natalie and Seth rocked it and I had such a great time roaming through the headlands for their photos.  For the record, when I took the pics sitting on the trunk of the car as they drove around, my feet were hooked under the back seat and it was quite safe (just in case Cara asks :) Also, our new associate photographer, Kelly, joined us and grabbed a few of the images below and I am so excited to have her be a part of the Flory Photo team.  Kelly and Natalie kept referencing Sex in the City the whole shoot and Seth and I kept looking at each other as we were clueless to their references as they would both proceed to crack up. Enjoy their photos and if you want to see more you can view them here.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I’ve been so excited to blog this shoot, and I have to start by giving a major shout out to Janie who is such a trooper. She walked this entire shoot with a broken ankle and a boot on, and she did it with style!  I had such a great time walking around their hometown of Alameda taking their pics. I hope that you enjoy them and I will be blogging their wedding next week (it is also going to be featured on one of our favorite blogs Ruffled). Have a great Thanksgiving everybody!
