The Falkirk Mansion Estate in San Rafael is a historic landmark that is elegant for wedding receptions. Sarah and Eric were a lovely couple to work with and so happy that day. It was a joy to participate in their celebration. Even though it was November we were lucky to have warm beautiful weather!

I did not know that you could have your wedding at the San Francisco Zoo until now! It was a pretty amazing place to have a ceremony and party. The vows were at the Savannah area with Zebras, Giraffes and Gazelle wandering by. Cocktail hour was by the beautiful Carrousel and Dinner, Toasts and Dancing were in the gorgeous Great Hall!
Phillip and Margarita had a fun wedding in San Francisco last weekend, they incorporated many traditional aspects into the ceremony. After that there was a piper and guitarist to lead us into the grand hall where we did the Hora chair dance with everyone gathered in a circle singing, dancing and clapping. The weather was chilly outside but here everyones heart was warm.

Wow, what a great party at the Fairmont last Saturday night! I was very impressed with the Jesse Charles Band, the best band I have heard play at a wedding in years (songmanentertainment.com). The Fairmont of course is elegant in many ways. Everyone was happy and enjoying the celebration!
I recently had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at Saint Joseph's Cathedral in San Jose. Mark Stover and I were a team for the event which was great as he is a very talented photographer in the Santa Cruz area. The details and beauty of the church were inspiring, I would have liked to stay longer! Here are a few images to start with.

It was a beautiful day in the town of Sonoma August 14th. The Stone Room and walled courtyard garden was a sweet place for the wedding at The Lodge at Sonoma. We had fun taking photographs. The floral arrangements and bouquets were especially superb from Maki at Viola Flowers. Megan and Matt, may you have much happiness in your new life together!

On Saturday I enjoyed shooting a wedding at Vine Hill House, just west of Sebastopol. What a jewel of a place! Orchards, vineyards, a pretty house and garden just the right size. The food from Park Ave Catering was fabulous. Kari and Long had a beautiful wedding there and were so happy to be together with everyone. Congratulations Kari and Long!

Dara and Pete met at UC Berkeley and wanted to be married near or on campus. The Lawrence Hall of Science was a fun place with a beautiful view of the city and bay. All the guests enjoyed a gourmet picnic, live music and homemade jam! A slideshow of the highlights can be seen at http://www.baylaurelphotography.com/clients/Dara/
Many Blessings Dear Dara and Pete!

I recently did a two photographer wedding in the San Francisco Presidio. It is great to work as a team with Marty (New View Photography) as we can offer enhanced coverage together! The beautiful Presidio was foggy and windy as usual, but the warmth of all the people made it very pleasant to be there. Jessica and Mike are a wonderful couple, we wish them many blessings!
