I had the honor of photographing the wedding of a dear friend’s brother yesterday. It was a delightful and classy affair, with simple and clean elegance throughout. Both the bride and groom currently reside in Ireland, though the groom hails from the Bay Area. The bride and her family and some friends crossed the pond for some of our signature sunny weather. Er, I mean drizzly, gray February. But the gods of weather saw fit to give us a short window of bright blue skies. I don’t think it would have mattered, as the day was filled with bright smiles and warm embraces all around. It was a intimate and close-knit group that gathered in St. Thoma Aquinas church in Palo Alto for a proper wedding mass. It’s a lovely old church, with big stained windows and beautiful architecture. From there we took a jaunt down the road to the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens for some portraits and back to the Women’s Club for dinner and some dancing. (and cupcakes!) Being in the area again made me miss my old stomping grounds and the charming old houses and gardens in the neighborhoods. but enough of that, on to the photos!
Deirdre & John, I had a lovely day and I hope that you’ll enjoy these images as you get a bit of a honeymoon. Best wishes to you!
