There’s something extra special about San Francisco weddings in December, and Mike and Mary’s winter celebration was no exception. From the beautiful traditional ceremony at St. Ignatius to the incredibly fun reception at Radius, the Ibe wedding was a great way to end 2014. The reception itself may have been our favorite of the year. They rented out an amazing restaurant and filled it with friends, family, dancing, amazing food and house-made egg nog. We had an incredible 2014 and we couldn’t have spent our final wedding of the year with a better couple than the Ibe’s.

Thomas and Addie were married in beautiful Monterey, in late September. Thomas, a police officer, shared his handwritten vows with lovely Addie in a beautiful Monterey courtyard. The couple was treated to one of the funniest best man speeches we’ve heard in a long time and they were fortunate to spend the day getting ready and celebrating at the beautiful Pasadera Country Club. This wedding video is one of our favorites from this season. Thomas and Addie are the best!

If you were to Google Todd Hamilton, you would likely find his tech blog, info about the iWatch and various musings about world of technology and the internet. Having spent the day with Todd and his wife Rosie, we can attest that there is much more to him (and the couple) than a simple Google search can drum up. Rosie and Todd’s wedding featured one of the most beautiful wedding and reception site we filmed this season. Their family and friends enjoyed a beautiful day in the Napa Valley and danced the night away with the best wedding band we’ve ever seen/heard (no joke). From the lovely first look at a vintage Napa home to the ceremony, dinner, and evening party, the Hamilton’s wedding was among our favorites.

On August 31, Ben and Nicole shared their wedding vows under a canopy of pine trees on the Tahoe shore. The setting could not have been more magical. The outdoor ceremony featured perfect weather and fun details that accentuated Tahoe’s aesthetic. There’s something special about the mountains and getting married on the bank of such a beautiful lake. Ben and Nicole’s wedding was the perfect way to end the summer.

Matt Pine likes the outdoors. He hunts, has outdoorsy facial hair, and is the type of guy you would want to be with in of those “end of the world” scenarios. Having said that, Kirsten can more than hold her own. On August 2, with Kirsten’s grandpa officiating, the couple shared their vows in front of their closest family and friends. Their marriage is sure to have a lot of laughs, love and adventure.

Van Zant Wedding Movie


On a warm summer day in Calistoga, Zack and Stacy Van Zant made their love official in front of their closest friends and family. With the help of Off the Beaten Path Weddings, they put together a lovely, country-tinged wedding. The reception featured a bluegrass band, indoor and outdoor dancing and some of the most incredible wedding scenery we have come across. The Van Zant’s love story was a lot of fun to capture on a beautiful July day.

Guajardo Wedding Highlights


What do you get when you mix a Latin American groom, a Jordanian bride, and a beautiful Greek Orthodox church in San Francisco? If you guessed the “Guajara wedding,” you are correct. On a unseasonably cold July day, Irene and Zzane shared their vows in front of a large gathering of family and friends. To say that this wedding was fun would be an understatement. From the traditional ceremony, to the mariachi band and candle dance, the Guajara wedding was one that we will never forget.
