Dara & Darin - Puerto Vallarta Mexico

I love it when people do things a bit out of the ordinary. I'm sure it's hard to do something different when it's a major event like a wedding. Weddings have been around for a long time and are chalk full of tradition. Traditions that never seem to vary really. But this couple, who both come from traditional Jewish families, decided to get married in Puerto Vallarta Mexico in February. It was three days of fun and sun with close family and friends. If you want to do something a little different with your wedding you should think about a destination wedding which may even be cheaper than having a large traditional wedding here in the states. This wedding was at the amazing and very private Casa Macumba and was flawlessly coordinated by Pricilla Arminio of prisavarllarta events. I heard twice that the bride thought the day went exactly as she envisioned it.

Something really out of the ordinary for a wedding, fire dancers!

Jennifer & Tom - Engaged

Jennifer and Tom met one night and he let this beauty get away. Her friend gave them a second chance to re-connect. He let her get away, again. As fate may have it they ran into each other. He didn't let her get away this time. Phew. I know SF is a really small city but how many chances do we really get to have these fleeting opportunities and then act on them? I think they're meant to be and these pictures just clarify it. Such a cute couple.

Erika & Roman - San Francisco, Ca

Wow, my first wedding of 2009 and I am so excited to post these pictures. Erika and Roman were married in San Francisco's beautiful City Hall. They are have a wedding in Mexico later this month but wanted some pictures for their civil ceremony. I love shooting at city hall because it's so classic San Francisco and old worldly.
Erika glammed it up with her super chic outfit, matching yellow accessories and white gloves and Roman was looking effortlessly handsome in a charcoal pin stripped suit. Talk about a stylish couple! They are the epitome of sophistication and style. Then Erika's sisters and mother showed looking equally stylish and beautiful. I was in photographers heaven. Yes, Erika is obviously a natural beauty but she went with the classic theme of SF's City Hall and pulled together an appropriate and stylish outfit which took it up a notch. Now this is how you get married at city hall!

Here's a slide show of the whole day...
