This passed October we shot the COOLEST wedding at the San Francisco Presidio Golden Gate Club. It's kind of bizarre how much we have in common with this fantastic couple. From our mutual love of New Orleans jazz and San Francisco to history & cooking-we hit it off completely. Naturally when their wedding rolled around we were SO stinkin excited!
Charles has two daughters Clementine and Adalaide (hello awesome names) and they were never far from Melissa's side while she prepared at the San Francisco Marriott hotel. The two girls also were Charles' "Best Girls" during the ceremony. Love.
Nathan spent time goofing off with Charles before the reveal at the chapel-I'm sorry but I just love bow ties like the one Charles rocked.
Charles and Melissa got married at the Interfaith Center at the Presidio which is SO neat. We did their reveal just steps away from the front door. Then we took them up into the trees for a beautiful bridal shoot.
Charles and Melissa's ceremony was a perfect reflection of their very unique love. And there were SO many stinkin adorable kids.
Um....do you see the girls during Charles & Melissa's first kiss? Yeah. Pretty much awesome.
In keeping with the theme the Brass Monkey Brass Band arrived right after the first kiss & led the guests down the road to the Presidio Golden Gate Club where the reception took place. To say these guys were out of control amazing is the biggest understatement in the world. FUN FUN FUN!!!
Charles and Melissa used Jane Hammond Events to help create their completely amazing reception! Dancing, laughter....and a gumbo bar!!
We had the great pleasure of working with Burkart Studios who did the videography for Charles and Melissa-check it out!!
