Today's featured wedding, shot by Clifford Brunk, is pure and simple gorgeousness. The bride is flawless with her Old Hollywood Glam style, the San Francisco venue is literally breathtaking and the photography is perfection.

The things that really stood out to me with this wedding was the clarity of the theme that the couple had for the wedding.  They had a very “Classic Hollywood” sort of feel that carried through the entire day.  Melissa had the birdcage veil, the bright red lips with porcelain skin, the long white gloves, the 30’s/40’s inspired updo, and this all matched the details and venue perfectly.  I also kept this aesthetic in mind when shooting the portraits, going for the dramatic hardlit look that was typical of the period.
