Miriam Ziskin & Mike Swofford said their vows in Calistoga, California under a beautiful arbor surrounded by family and friends. Pops of purple, blue and yellow added color to an already picturesque outdoor setting.
Shawn Nohr & Tyler Brooks wanted to celebrate their special day in memory of loved ones who had passed away. The couple chose to say their vows at the Contra Country Club where a tree was planted in honor of Tyler's late grandfather. The couple made sure to take plenty of photos in front of that tree following a lovely ceremony that looked out over the golf course. There was also a gin and tonic bar at the reception for family and friends to sip in Tyler's grandfather's memory.
Nick and Victoria Gutierrez let their favorite decade inspire their ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. A relaxed 1920's-themed wedding evolved into a larger reception the following day where guests danced the night away at a "speak-easy" bar.
Six vintage gowns, two models, one stylist and a photographer arrived in the hills of the Napa Valley for this styled shoot. Inspired by a valley that loves a good vintage, welcomes weddings, and oozes natural beauty. What better place to shoot these gorgeous vintage wedding gowns?
This amazing wedding had many elements that the bride did herself, such as the pinwheels which were used as escort cards. Even the self-portrait photo booth that the guests had their picture taken inside of "frames" was made by the bride. They had many "school" elements as the bride is an elementary school teacher, such as the guest book made out of old library cards.
Couple: Kendall Smith & Alex Wilson
For months, Nathan Barefield, a quality assurance engineer for iPhones and iPads at Apple, had been checking out an attractive woman on the company’s commuter shuttle from San Francisco to Cupertino. Not only did he like the way she looked, he noticed she wore Tiger sneakers—beloved by cyclists everywhere—and wondered if she shared his passion for bikes. The dark haired woman, who kept her ear buds in and her face pointed towards her laptop, never noticed him.
Lindsey Ross’s San Francisco connections run deep and span generations, so when she and her husband-to-be, Ronnie Rosser, decided to tie the knot, they wanted to do it in one of the City by the Bay’s historic spots. They married in a wedding filled with firefighter and nautical references at the Argonaut Hotel on the waterfront.
My girlfriend and I recently got engaged, and all my guy friends—especially the married ones with kids—are talking about throwing me a bachelor party in Vegas. This is my second marriage, and I feel like it’s inappropriate to throw a (second) big bachelor party. What do you think?
As Ben Stiller once said, can you deal with this?
