I love when couples include their furry friends for an e-sesh. It’s something that I wish we could have done for ours, but alas, our beach didn’t allow pups. So I will live vicariously through these two cuties and their happy black lab today. All three pranced around the hills of San Francisco with Mirelle Carmichael and the resulting gallery is pretty darn sweet.

From Mirelle Carmichael Photography…I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable couple’s engagement session on a perfect day in San Francisco. We started at the Bernal Heights hill with an epic view of the city, then headed to Stern Grove and discovered a gorgeous flower bed, and ended the day at Ocean Beach, where they got engaged! The beautiful bride, Morgan, wore a swoon-worthy skirt from Modcloth, a dress from Gap and a gorgeous yellow sweater from Urban Outfitters. The handsome groom, Zach, wore a shirts from Uniqlo, boots from Red Wing, and a denim jacket from Rag & Bone.

These two classic cuties have me swooning hard today. Not only is grandma’s sweet smile while watching their first dance completely heart melting, but every little detail is tradition at it’s finest. From the venue selection, the Lakeside Olympic Club where the Bride’s family have made many memories to the wedding cake replica of her grandparent’s cake, Lyndsay Undseth made sure every moment made it’s way into this gallery.
From Linen & Lilac…The vision for this wedding came together with a lot of special attention from all the vendors, but most especially from the bride and her mother. The jumping off point were the colors peach, brass, and gold- simple, classy, and perfect for the bride and groom’s venues of Calvary Presbyterian Church and the Lakeside Olympic Club in San Francisco. Since the Lakeside Club holds many family memories for the bride and her family, they were thrilled to host the reception at this elegant traditional venue. From hand selected vintage brass vases to the heirloom cake cutting knife to the hand painted trinkets placed atop each table setting, many items were lovingly collected by the bride and her mother. One especially touching example of the family’s attention to detail was the wedding cake, which was a replica of the bride’s grandparent’s wedding cake complete with her grandparent’s vintage wedding topper! The flawless venue, collaboration of all the vendors, warm colors, and special family touches made this a wedding to remember.
