I’ve been a bad blogger! I have *three* blog posts backlogged. I feel so bad for neglecting all these shoots – Time to make amends!
A few weeks ago I had the honor of photographing the wedding celebration of Jesse and Fernan. Jesse is an old friend from high school days and it was such a pleasure to meet his love and help capture their fabulous celebration.
And yes, I DO mean fabulous!
The ceremony was held in the beautiful First Unitarian Universalist Church in San Francisco. The ceremony was a mix of traditions, and decorated with lush and rich Indian details. Jesse had every detail planned, and the colors and textures were a feast for the eyes. The guests were dressed to the nines, and their 25 attendants were adorned with feather fascinators, boutineers and gold gilt umbrellas.
Their reception was Moulin Rouge themed, in honor of the couple’s favorite city – Paris. Jesse and Fernan have an extremely talented group of family and friends, many of which performed during the ceremony. Everyone contributed something to make this really a celebration to remember. I haven’t been to a wedding that had this much laughter and emotion, it was really, truly a great celebration.
Jesse and Fernan’s wedding was a celebration of truth, beauty, freedom and LOVE. Watching their family and friends shower them with love and help celebrate their union really drives home how important it is to have your relationship recognized by the state. They were originally married in September 2008 as part of the historic wave of civil gay weddings in San Francisco. While they are legally married, many other couples are not afforded the same dignity of this most basic of rights. Please visit the no on H8 campaign.
