The beautiful wedding of Gaby and Ryan Tan cultivated the highest level of sophistication and class. The ceremony and reception came together at The Westin St. Francis in scenic San Francisco. The intimate celebration included forty of the couples dearest friends and family. Both Gabriela and Ryan had impeccable style; the bride in Vera Wang, the groom in Ralph Lauren Black Label. The immaculate attention to detail by Green Lily Weddings glistened in the gilded elements present throughout the nuptials and reception. Floral designer Fleur*t, arranged a soft array of ranunculus, hydrangeas, and roses adding to the air of romance.

The wedding season is officially in full-swing: bachelorette and bachelor parties are roaring, wedding coordinators are in a tizzy of last-minute planning, and photographers are anticipating a bevy of once-in-a-lifetime moments to capture on film.The beauty, harmony, and joyous celebration that accompany wedding ceremonies inspire me to create the highest caliber of images possible.
I’m particularly fascinated by wedding locations. Location reflects a couple’s values and aesthetic ideals. Whether they select a quaint cottage nestled in a redwood forest, an ornate villa on a remote shorefront, or a red-brick Methodist church, their choice of a wedding environment communicates a message to their community of family and friends. Last year, Courtney’s and Johnny’s selection of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn for their wedding ceremony spoke to me on a deep level.
The overall experience distinctively and authentically bespoke Northern California’s wine country. From a rehearsal dinner in a wine cellar that was embedded in a hillside to an outdoor cocktail hour surrounded by the rich, warm color palette of Sonoma Valley, Courtney and Johnny’s wedding location was at once sumptuous, earthy, and refined.
One of Martha Stewart’s favorite bridal blogs loves this adventurous wedding couple as much as I do. Brooklyn Bride is one of the online community’s leading bridal blogs, not to mention one of 7 members of the exclusive Martha’s Circle. When I learned that the blog selected my San Francisco engagement-session portraits of Texas residents Gaby & Ryan to be featured on their website, I was truly honored. Check out this dreamy pair’s smoking-hot images on Brooklyn Bride.
