I’ve been in the thick of wedding season, so apologies for not getting this INCREDIBLE wedding up earlier. Lindsey and Chris are one of a cluster of California weddings I’ve done over the last couple of years and more specifically friends of Joanna and Peter who I shot in Mill Valley. What an extraordinary treat to get to know Lindsey and Chris, their friends and family. Lindsey’s dad and uncle were constantly asking if I needed anything, if I’d eaten and if they could do anything to make me more comfortable.
They did something really neat that I hadn’t seen before and adored (and wished I had done at my wedding.) They invited their closest friends and family in a beautiful underground light sculpture out behind the de Young and saw one another for the first time among them and then made individual vows to each of them as a couple. Note to self: kleenex is good to have in pocket for guests, but also for me, thank you very much.
Everyone made their way to a gallery at 12 Gallagher Lane and danced their backsides off even after neighbors tried to shut them down. Their friends and family gathered around them and stomped a rhythm and shouted out lyrics to their favorite songs. Oh and Lindsey’s dad yanked out a saber and he and Chris took turns knocking the tops of of a couple bottles of champagne.
As their sign says, “Yield to Love.” And wow…what a way to set an example. Thank you two!
