Lovers Lane, San Francisco Elopement: Molly & Lauren

let me start off by saying how grateful i am for google.
that is how molly & lauren found me.

without question … this day was easily one of my favorite days of last year. and some of my favorite work … ever.
you will not find a fancy dress, perfect hair, or an extravagant reception. it was pure emotion. pure heart. pure meaning.

molly and lauren drove from portland, oregon to marry in san francisco. under the eucalyptus trees of lovers lane, surrounded by their closest friends + poppy and emma, they made it official. everything about their simple elopement was true to them — filled with sentiment and meaning. isn’t that rainbow flag amazing?!? and the rainbow ribbon used to passed their rings around?!? how lucky i am to have been a witness to it.

lastly, molly’s mom was the person who brought molly & lauren together. and while she’s no longer on this earth, her presence was felt so deeply. you will see little mementos incorporated throughout their ceremony to remember her. as i’ve come to understand the true depths of pain and loss myself, i cherish and connect with that aspect of their day that much more.

molly and lauren, i can’t wait to see you two again. forever thankful to google for connecting us in more ways than one.
thank you for showing me how love wins and heals. much love to you both…x

San Francisco City Hall Wedding

I spent two hrs with Mariska & Steve on Monday, but they stole my heart within a few minutes.

Their hearts on their sleeves. Nothing more inspiring than that.

This moment between them says it all…

Katie & Tim: A preview

For as many times as I’ve said that elopements have my heart, they do.

I couldn’t tell you one specific reason because there’s so much about it that fuels me.

Perhaps its…

The reason why my couples choose to marry in San Francisco.
How they walk in for the first time after only seeing it in photos. With eyes bright, in awe.
The intimacy of it. Oh, the intimacy of it.
Simplicity. No fuss, just being.
How naturally more present they are when it’s just the two of them.
Being chosen to be the one and only witness of their union, and document it. The weight and beauty in that.

It’s all of those things and so much more. I’ve been to the courthouse numerous times now, yet somehow, I’m always inspired and left wanting more.

Katie and Tim made it official at City Hall on Monday. It was just the three of us — their friends & family in the UK.

Every second of our short time together tugged at my heart.  And I can’t wait to share more of their day very soon…
