They say you should always save the best for last and, considering the Herron’s celebration was our final wedding of the year, we definitely finished 2016 on a high note. Chris and Clarissa’s beautiful fall Casa Real wedding was the perfect way to complete our wedding season. We had an amazing time with the Herron’s and we couldn’t have picked a better couple for our 30th, and final, wedding of 2016.

When things don’t go as planned, there are a couple ways you can respond: You can freak out and act like the sky is falling or you can look at the cup as being half full and make the best of what you have. Well, Troy and Allie’s wedding didn’t necessarily go as they expected. They found out at 2:15pm, via email, that their priest would not be able to officiate their ceremony. Luckily, an hour later, a priest (aka the hero, Father Tom) offered to conduct the ceremony and the Channings lived happily ever after. We love fall weddings and Troy and Allie’s laid back November wedding was a dream.

If you are looking to add a little something extra to your wedding, you should probably have a bagpipe player escort you down the aisle during your recessional. That’s exactly what Kyle and Alyse did and it was amazing. The Patersons elegant ceremony, on September 10 at Diablo Country Club, was a beautiful mix late summer beauty and celebration among family and friends. Also, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention Diamond Dave. That DJ is a legend.

Cameron and Mariah started dating in high school and 6 years later they committed to a lifetime of love. The Coon’s Livermore wedding was a lot of fun. The couple exude a kindness and love that you don’t see very often. Their community of friends and family helped them celebrate a storybook wedding on a lovely day in Livermore.

Katie contacted us about filming her wedding, without knowing that I teach at the school where her husband is a football coach. Small world. Matt and Katie’s May wedding at Palmdale Estates was a beautiful event. It’s always fun filming weddings when we know this guests and The Hoefs wedding was no exception. From the day’s subtle nods to the sport Matt loves to Katie’s eye for detail, the celebration was one of the highlights of this wedding season.

Chris and Lucy were married on a lovely May day in San Ramon, California. As a matter of fact, the couple got married at the same venue I married my wife 10 years earlier. It was my first time back to the site since my wedding and it was a lot of fun to reminisce and capture the beginning of a new marriage. Chris and Lucy’s love was so evident to all in attendance. It was the type of day you would want to re-live and fortunately they have photos and video to help remind them of their beginnings many years from you.
