Joanne + Glyn: An Elopement in San Francisco

Wedding

On Tuesday I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Joanne and Glyn. They came over from Newcastle, England to get married and honeymoon around the States. Their tiny ceremony and 3 week honeymoon will be followed by a grand reception when they return home. They ran into a few speed bumps along the way, namely lost luggage that arrived the night before the ceremony and our silly Labor Day which required them to trek to City Hall the day of the ceremony rather than Monday as they had planned. Oops.

Everything fell into place. Joanne had massive butterflies and was just shaking with excitement. They married in the Marriott at Fisherman’s Wharf presided over by Angel Stork. The very cool thing about such an intimate ceremony is the feeling in the room. There were only five of us there and even I was feeling all aflutter from Joanne and Glyn’s vibes.





It was a very sweet ceremony and Glyn opened the bubbly afterwards to celebrate.

I then whisked them away to Fisherman’s Wharf for some true San Francisco portraits. When looking through their pictures, I can’t help but notice the way Glyn looks at Joanne. There is so much love and happiness in his eyes.


Joanne felt a bit self-conscious walking around in full bridal wear and was sure everyone was looking. In actuality, they were! She looked gorgeous and they received many many congratulations and cheers from perfect strangers. They noted that that kind of behavior would never happen in England. They even had a request from a guy who just wanted to take their picture!


We then walked over to Pier 39 to check out the sea lions, a trolley car, the piers, the Hard Rock Café, and a few other quintessential SF elements.



We made a full circle back to the hotel and poor Joanne was able to take off her shoes. Being beautiful isn’t all that easy! It was the perfect day for a wedding and I hope they had a fabulous time on their dinner cruise that evening.

Thank you both for letting me be such an important part of your day and have a great time while you’re here!

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Alexa loooooves herself some bling and she’s not afraid to show it.  She’s a total girly girl and she found herself a country guy – their complimentary personalities were immediately obvious at their Longwood Gardens engagement session last year when she showed up in frills and he in jeans. Their wedding day was fantastic.  The ladies prepped at Alexa’s family’s house in Newark.  There were plenty of personal flourishes like her grandmother’s handkerchief and prayer book (used as her ring pillow) and her special brooch bouquet (with an extra brooch given to her by her mother from her travels). And of course the dress!  This was ...

Jessica and Gaston were married in Argentina last year.  They live there and came to the States for a wedding reception to celebrate with more of her friends and family who couldn’t make it down for the event.  We met on a gorgeous day in Rittenhouse Square.  Jessica wore a breezy cream and white crochet gown that had a very boho feel, accented by her flats. Her long hair was pulled into a beautiful curly updo with some tea roses. Gaston cleaned up nicely, looking so smooth and dapper.  Thankfully, I was able to get some smiles out of him and his brothers. There was no official wedding party, only close friends and fami ...

At our high school reunion, Nicole told me that she wanted me to photograph her wedding.  She didn’t have the guy yet but she wanted me to be the one behind the camera.  I was flattered but assumed she’d forget by the time it rolled around.  Lo and behold, Nicole met Michael soon after and I heard from Nicole earlier this year to let me know that it was go time!  I was thrilled!  The Nicole I remembered was popular, beautiful, intelligent, humble, and kind.  You couldn’t not like Nicole.  I’m happy to say that she’s still the same.  It was an overcast day in the high 60s and practically perfect ...
