San Francisco Wedding : Meg + Tim


There are people who see beauty in ways others don’t. In crevices, cracks, broken pieces. Meg is one such person. Not only seeing what’s on the surface, she’s always looking for what’s below. Inside. In between the cracks. Perhaps that’s why when she called her mother to let her know she met a cute musician in Los Angeles, her mom asked her the important questions. Prodding for answers that might lie in the crevices. Though Meg’s responses were the norm (he’s cute, nice, and funny!) time later revealed Tim was more than what was in the surface. He’s kind, thoughtful, and funny…with great penmanship.

Seven years later–after an occasional tour with his band, staying in hotels with astroturf in lieu of carpeting–Meg moved with Tim to San Jose, California. They share an office in a craftsmen style house, their desks placed so they face each other. Because that’s how they’ve grown. Through the mangled path called Life, Meg and Tim face each other. Always. They know that, together, they can navigate the sometimes jagged turns. And through it all, they’ve learned to see beauty in the crevices, cracks, and broken pieces.

Meg and Tim… IS THIS REAL LIFE?! I want to crawl through this computer right to Hawaii and squeeze you. Tightly. You have no idea how special it was to document your love. I’ve always been honored to be called a friend, but–as your wedding photographer–I find no greater pride. Your day was gorgeous and a perfect depiction of your love. Thank you for opening your hearts and letting me capture it all. Much Love and Appreciation… j*

Having a few necklace options to wear on her wedding day, Meg decided to go with her mom’s locket…and donned a pair of fabbbbbulous Chanel heels…

Many thanks to Lisa Strutz and Elizabeth Chang of Symmetry Beauty for doing Meg and her bridesmaids hair and makeup…

In true Meg form, she bought her Carolina Herrera wedding dress two months before her wedding…she chose another dress, but later realized it wasn’t what she wanted. So she called her mom and said, We need to go shopping!

But her reaction to getting into the dress is priceless…this is a girl who’s ready to wear a wedding dress!

Meg’s mom and sister–Donna and Emma–helped dress Meg…

…and this was the outcome. This is Meg in the hotel lobby of Casa Madrona…looking stunning.

Phil–Meg’s awesome dad–picked us up in his VW van…filled with awesome reads…

The ride wouldn’t have been complete if Meg and her bridesmaids didn’t sing, Goin’ to the cha-pel…and we’re gon-na git marrrrrried!

Each of Meg’s bridesmaids wore unique vintage dresses…and I loved them all!

Meanwhile…Tim waited patiently at The Marin Headlands Center for the Arts for his bride to arrive…

Like always, I’m thrilledthrilledthrilled when a couple opts for a First Look. Meg and Tim wanted plenty of time for photos and to enjoy their day, so they saw each other before the wedding ceremony. His reaction to Meg’s beauty is priceless…

The beauty of The Marin Headlands Center for the Arts was its abundance of places to shoot…all with gorgeous San Francisco light. I could photograph a wedding here everyday of the week!

Special thanks to Studio Choo for providing such beautiful wedding florals…

Tim, you’re handsome. Just thought I’d state the obvious.

I was in lurrrrve with Meg’s Studio Choo wedding bouquet. It was a mix of peonies, roses, and wild flowers, and a perfect reflection to the style of the wedding day.

JD’s angle…

My angle…

Go on wit yo bad self, Meggipoo!

Shot this photo with my brand, spankin’ new 35mm, 1.4…more on that lens coming soon…

Meg is a genius. She delivered furniture to San Francisco to ensure she had funky bridal party and family formal pictures…

As I was going through JD’s cards, I noticed of set of Meg. How or when they were taken is beyond me, but she looks divine. Then I fist-bumped JD for being so handsome.

Okay. So. Here’s where a huge, huge, HUGE thank you must go. Yelena with Stylish Soiree was my backbone on the wedding day. To say there was a lot going on would be a major understatement (the venue was expansive, there were a ton of details, and time constraints), but she made sure everything was everywhere I needed it, when I needed it. Yelena worked with Meg from the beginning to execute her vision for the wedding day and I couldn’t have been more proud to work alongside such an amazing planner and event designer.

Rich, burgundy fruits like plum and pomegranates were used throughout the wedding, so it seemed like a perfect sitting for the rings…

I’m a huge fan of personal vows and Meg didn’t disappoint. Their wedding was personal, unique, and totally reflective of their family, friends, and love.

Did I mention how much I loved this bridal party? Because I did. Love them. A lot.

We spent 10 minutes catching the last bit of sunset and these are some of my favorite wedding photos of the day…it was supposed to rain in San Francisco, but the sun rallied and showed in true form…

Again, many thanks to Yelena and Hazel of Stylish Soiree for transforming the historic mess hall of The Marin Headlands Center for the Arts into a wedding reception fit for royalty…

After dinner, everyone headed upstairs for the First Dance…

    This post makes me so happy. A beautiful person well-equipped to weddings becomes a bride! It’s so lovely to see these gorgeous photos and Meg’s amazing style. But I’m dying to know if she was more excited for the big kiss or just the opportunity to finally wear her Chanel shoes?

    I can NOT quit looking at this wedding.. lalalaloooove everything! These pictures are brilliant. The simplicity is in the details. Her wedding concept & design looks effortlessly, super duper retro modern tres’ shabby chic…and oh so granola. Does any of that make a dime’s worth of sense? In other words, I think you captured the mood and moment Perfectly!

    Hi J Star, it’s L Hart! I’ve been wanting to leave a comment/question for SO long now and tonight, with this blog post, it’s as if you’ve READ MY MIND! First, absolutely love not only the pictures, but the STORY of the day. Second, for a while I have been wanting to leave a question/inquiry about group photos. You do such a great job of posting sooo many beautiful B&G photos, but I rarely see a group shot (obviously it’s not about the group) but I’ve been curious from a professional photographer’s stand point, just to see your handiwork w/ a bigger crowd. Then tonight, wahlaa, you deliver! Thanks for giving us a peak at the whole group. Just curious, I know you love the 50mm for up close and personal shots… any specific lens/setting for larger bridal party/family shots to keep everyone clear and in focus, yet still engaged? If you ever do another Q&A I would love any advice direction on that one πŸ™‚ LOVE YOU!!

    Absolutely brilliant ! A fantastic story tastefully reported with sparling pictures , both narrative and graphic.
