Michelle & Robert's Wedding. San Mateo

Ceremony at St. Robert's in San Bruno with reception at the Peninsula Italian American Social Club in San Mateo.

Another great couple I met through the videographer More Than Memories. I have enjoyed spending time with MIchelle and Bob over the last six months. They were my excuse to drink coffee and eat at North Beach Pizza! We also enjoyed great weather during their pre-wedding shoot at Baker Beach in the Presidio.

We started early at the Embassy Suites in Burlingame where - as luck would have it - there was little wind so working outdoors was possible. Off to the church...
Wow, you should really check out the stained glass at St. Robert's! After the ceremony the wedding party stopped briefly at Central Park in San Mateo and then we continued to the PIASC where, I am told, the meatballs are really good. The guests enjoyed the music as the dance floor seemed packed up until the end. Even a couple of polka's were thrown in ;-)

Jennifer & Michael's Wedding. San Jose

Ceremony at St. Victor's in San Jose with reception at the Newark/Fremont Hilton.

They came up all the way from San Diego just to have me photograph their wedding! OK, I
admit some parts of that statement are exaggerated... After a string of 100+ degree days Jennifer and Michael brought some cooler temperatures with them into town making our side trip to Ed Levin Park much more pleasant.

Makeup and hair central was at the home of Jennifer's parents. The ladies left for the church in an extended Hummer limo which turned the heads of neighbors as it idled in front of the house. I think it was as long as the house was wide! Formal group shots culminated in a huge family photograph where I managed to fit everyone in. After a brief ride in the limo the wedding party was in good spirits ;) at the
Ed Levin location shoot. Off to the hotel when, sometime during the reception, everyone seemingly changed into their Jordan's. Hmmm, I don't recall ever receiving the memo.
