April was a very exciting month for John and I, and it couldn’t have culminated in a better way – a San Francisco wedding! Don and Irene were married in San Francisco, at the church where Irene grew up. As you can see from this first image, it was a beautiful, blue sky day (which, if you know anything about San Francisco, is a rarity!). Up until the point of the wedding, we had only communicated with Don and Irene via phone and email, so we were really excited to meet them both in person! We had our suspicions about them, and they proved absolutely true! Both Don and Irene are two of the kindest, warmest and most delightful people we’ve met. Together, we have know doubt, they will care for each other with devoted love and tenderness, while immensely blessing the lives of those around them.
Here are some of the details as the day began.
The lovely, lovely Irene, and a shot of her father’s rosary.
Here’s Don lookin’ super sharp.
I love this black and white series of Irene just reveling in the moment.
I was blown away by the beauty of the church’s interior. I loved their choice of flowers. What a perfect compliment!
Don waiting patiently for his bride.
Irene was walked down the aisle by her brother. What a special moment between siblings!
I love this shot!
I love the shot on the left that John got of Don’s reaction to seeing Irene for the first time. So precious!
Don and Irene’s ceremony was both beautiful and deeply meaningful. It was also a great way for John and I to be reminded of the vows we made to each other!
Don and Irene left the church in style!
When the breeze kicked up Irene’s veil, we just went with it. I love the results!
There is so much more to share with you guys, and I can’t wait to feature Irene and Don’s reception at the Coyote Point Yacht Club tomorrow! Same time, same place everyone!
