Project Description


I got to photograph yet another amazing couple in October ..  Adrienne and Jonathan! It was an epic day. It started at The Waterfront, a Joie de Vivre  hotel where they got ready. Adrienne’s mom painted her nails gold, the ladies got their hair did 1930’s style, and the bride put on a beautiful one of a kind peacock inspired dress, by Wai Ching . In another room , Jonathan finished his suit with a pair of metallic turquoise shoes that matched the dress.  When all were glamorous, we moved on to their local bar, Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon for photos. I’ve never gotten a chance to explore the rustic ‘lil place. It looks like it’s straight out of an old western.. (which I’m kinda a sucker for..) Folks cheered on as we walked through the square.  After Jack London we headed to the SS Red Oak Victory, in Point Richmond.  It’s part of the National Historical Park and was used in WWII.  The ceremony and reception were held on the top deck as the sun set. The guests celebrated in 1920’s and elegant Burning Man attire. And the night started with a favorite  ditty of mine Heartbeats by the Knife. If you don’t know this song you should and I will put this right here for you.. ( Enjoy!
