TYNETTE AND NOAH
WEDDING AT QUAIL HOLLOW RANCH IN SANTA CRUZ
Shutterfly just chose us for their list of photographers in the San Francisco Bay area. We are thrilled! It is especially appropriate, since our clients often design their own Save-the-Date cards, Thank-you cards, and wedding albums using the high resolution photos we provide, and many of them have used Shutterfly.

WEDDING AT COASTWAYS RANCH

Annabel and Tylon were married at the family estate in the Almaden Valley, south of San Jose on July 15, 2017. They wanted the wedding to be a romantic, semi formal affair, with a slight Victorian look. The estate, with it’s tree-lined creek and large shaded lawn was the perfect place. The bride was gorgeous in her Amelia Sposa gown and the groom was handsome in a white dinner jacket. Even the cake looked regal.

Carolyn and Darby were surrounded by friends and family as they said their vows on June 24, 2017. A beautiful sunny day and a lovely setting in the redwoods made it a perfect day for a wedding. After the official ceremony one guest after another came up to tell the couple how much they meant to them and what a happy occasion it was.
It’s hard to find a location that is more romantic than the Shadowbrook restaurant in Capitola-by-the-Sea. The historic restaurant with it’s stained glass windows and cozy atmosphere just makes for a perfect wedding location. Ariel and Jonathan were married here on June 11, 2017, surrounded by close friends and family.
Jennifer and Paul were married at the Seascape Resort in Aptos on June 10, 2017. The ceremony took place on the bluff overlooking the ocean, on a perfect summer day. The bride’s father, a preacher, was the officiant for the ceremony and her two sons had the honor of carrying the rings and giving the bride away. A concert harpist added a touch of elegance to both the ceremony and cocktail hour. The groom is from Ireland and guests at the wedding included were friends and family from his homeland. The couple wanted the reception to be a relaxed, family affair, and the Seascape Resort was a perfect location for the celebration.
For Thanksgiving I made a pecan tart with a foolproof crust recipe from America’s Test Kitchen. It seriously is foolproof and the best crust ever. The secret is that it uses vodka. We had some Seagram’s Sweet Tea vodka left from a summer backyard party, and that was the perfect thing for a pecan tart.
