Two-Part weddings make me really happy.

Jo + Billy opted for this proper wedding day and a second ceremony later in the fall at the Log Cabin.

I initially met Jo when she was a bridesmaid for Rachel at the Barlow. She kept in touch asked me to photograph her and Billy’s day in San Francisco.

Getting ready took place at their home in the city where we did a first look on the beautiful balcony with views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We headed to the Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden for the ceremony, making a quick stop for some urban bridal party photos.

The ceremony took place under a chuppah adorned with bright orange and red carnations. Close friends and family [and golden gate park passerby-ers!] watched as Jo + Billy read their vows to one another.

A trolley took the newlyweds + wedding guests to the historic Stern Grove home where a live brass band welcomed the guests for cocktails, a bbq lunch + an afternoon of dancing into the woods. Big highlight was the entire wedding marching around the grounds to ‘As the Saints go Marching in’. These two are dancers and this day was GREAT.
