mk + jj: classic black + white affair at the oceano resort in half moon bay, california

Weddings & Engagement
August 17, 2017

california girl moves to chicago. meets boy. falls in love.

since most of the family still resides in california, this happy go lucky pair opted for a destination wedding along the coast. it was so fun to actually meet mk in the morning since we both agreed it was similar to engaging in a long distance relationship for the past year!

mary kate + jj are quite the pair. it was difficult to find a moment where they weren’t smiling around each other. they had their dearest friends + family gather at the oceano resort and spa in half moon bay. ceremony took place at our lady of the pillar + reception followed in the garden terrace at oceano. the clouds rolled in, the air had a certain briskness about it, love was in good supply. kettle one shots adorned each guests place marker, strolls by the pier happened along with some dancing to classics + a five tiered cake. it was a classy back tie affair through + through.

some photo proof:

Jumps + Clouds: Corner Barn Wedding in Charming Graeagle, California
After years of hearing about barn weddings, I was thrilled to finally be invited to shoot one at Corner Barn in Graeagle, California. The bride asked me on the way over to the ceremony if the clouds would be okay, "Would they ever" I assured her. These clouds were the memorizing type. Looking back at the photos I can't help but be in awe of the beautiful sky that day. Wide Open spaces and Wedding Day bliss. The Bridal Party was an absolute riot, in the best possible way. Proof is in their epic shots. We shoot weddings all over California and the world, find out more here.
