Lisa & Tim | Intimate San Francisco City Hall & Foreign Cinema Wedding

I've always loved San Francisco City Hall as the backdrop for the usual five person or so wedding where you wait in line alongside seven other couples for your turn to get married. 

But Lisa and Tim reserved the beautiful Mayor's Balcony on the 2nd floor, where 40 of their closest friends and family celebrated their union. After portraits, Lisa and Tim took their guests to Fort Point via a classic San Francisco trolley, then to Foreign Cinema (the Modernism West gallery) for a leisurely dinner and dancing.

Melissa & Will | Harley Farms Wedding in Pescadero, CA

Melissa and Will's wedding - cheese! goats! secret garden! 

I adored the tiny touches of detail that Melissa and Will had at their Harley Farms wedding. Melissa had a goat pin, her flower girl held a screaming goat toy (that screamed all the way down the aisle), Will had his goat socks, and tiny goat figurines held guests' names at their seats. 

Harley Farms was a beautiful backdrop. A walk down their pathway led to a secret garden where Melissa and Will had their ceremony. The large barn and the fire pit outside created an orange glow for warmth and s'mores after the sun set and the evening quickly grew chilly. 

And, of course, Melissa and Will got to pet the goats on the farm!

Brittany & Lucas | Los Altos History Museum Wedding

This was definitely one of my favorite weddings of 2017. Not often do I come across a speech from the bride that left everyone, including me and the videographers, in awe at how powerful and passionate her words were. And not often (ever) do I come across a petting zoo for an adults only wedding! 

Dia & Isaac | Brazilian Room Wedding in Tilden Park Berkeley, CA

I've photographed at the Brazilian Room several times now and I've loved it each time. Besides being my ideal size venue and lots of gorgeous backdrops everywhere, the people within them are what makes them so great. 

Dia and Isaac are such sweet people and the relationship they had with their family touched me. The bride's father seeing his daughter in a wedding dress for the first time is always a lovely moment, but I particularly liked how Dia's father reacted (just scroll a bit down)!

Isaac writing the last bits of his vow moments before the ceremony is always a favorite, and the late November light was particularly beautiful for their ceremony.

Mary & Aaron | Pelican Inn Wedding at Muir Beach, CA

Mary and Aaron got married at the loveliest little inn! 

Small spaces and very low-light venues can be tricky to photograph, but I usually like the challenge. I thrive in it, actually. I find some of my best compositions come from smaller spaces, and I have always loved the ambiance of pure candlelight. 

Chelsea & Taylor | China Cabin Wedding in Tiburon, CA

What a luxurious and intimate wedding Chelsea and Taylor's wedding was! A small gathering of about 40 people witnessed their marriage at the beautiful China Cabin in Tiburon, with Chelsea and Taylor riding in a vintage Rolls Royce afterwards for private bride and groom photos. Their parents' private residence provided the perfect seaside backdrop for the gorgeous design work of Lisa Feldman Design.
