Lake Merritt |Oakland, California | Huey and Will's Intimate Lakeside Ceremony | November 5, 2017

My journey has taken me to so many beautiful places with gorgeous couples who ask me to share their special love and more importantly document their wedding day. This one "tops" the cake. I will forever cherish this intimate and tender ceremony between Huey and Will. With 6 witnesses, including their sweet puppy Pilar they vowed their love and devotion to each other over looking the beautiful Lake Merritt in Downtown Oakland, California.

As I do with each ceremony, I teared up, but this was different. I was immensely happy for Huey and Will. Huey and I met about four years ago and I was immediately drawn to her amazing energy, infectious smile and awesome humor. To know that she had found her true love and soul mate in Will made it that more special. Will you are an amazing man and I know you will be a wonderful husband to Huey!

Since they are having a larger family ceremony and celebration back on the East Coast in February, I wanted to take full advantage of the gorgeous warm temperatures and that spectacular West Coast Sunshine. We found some really awesome locations for bridal portraits at the Oakland Museum of California! I could have stayed there all day! Huey and Will just seemed to melt into each background with their beautiful sweet and goofy love! We finished our portraits along the walkways of Lake Merritt and just when I thought I couldn't see more beautiful light I found it just getting prettier. Huey and Will you made my job so easy and I am incredibly humbled to document your beautiful devotion to each other not only once but twice. 

From their hand written vows, the sweet glances, the FaceTime of the ceremony to Huey's Will's mom being surprised of the event and Pilar having her own bow tie, it was truly a perfect celebration under the dreamy afternoon Californian Sun.  Enjoy a few of my favorites of Huey and Will's sweet wedding ceremony. I promise their love will warm your heart!



P.S. A big Thank you to my assistant, my bag carrier, FaceTime Documenter - My you!! I could not have done it without you and your support!
