Allied Arts Guild Wedding – Gabe + Casey – Menlo Park Wedding

Owning a VW has it’s advantages.  When you meet another person who can appreciate the Vanagon Westfailia as much as I do (read money pit), you know you’re in good company.  My first meeting with Gabe and Casey was at a cafe in Menlo Park.  They got some soup, I had a mocha.  We spoke of other stuff than wedding talk.  Things like where they were from, how they met, motorcycles, and yes, VW’s.  By the time they returned to the table with their meal, I think it was decided that I was the guy for them.  I can only say I am honored to have been your photographer.  It was such a blast to hang out with your family and friends, see you guys interact and have a great time, all the while capturing some amazing moments.  What follows is a slice of the day… or a tiny baklava bite… your choice.

Allied Arts Guild Wedding Photography – Katie + Edward – Menlo Park Wedding

I love it when weddings are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from my house.  Living down in Redwood City,the Allied Arts Guild is super close for me. One less stress for me, as I hate having to find parking! The day couldn’t have been more relaxing, as my bride Katie is a pretty mellow cupcake, and not to mention that the grounds are simply stunning.  There’s always something in bloom at this magical location, and we had our fair share of blossoms make an appearance.  It was pretty cool to see an amazing couple blooming into something more as well.  Katie and Edward are both go-getters, and are forging ahead to new frontiers – literally – as Edward accepted a fellowship on the east coast to pursue his career in medicine. California knows both will be missing the amazing weather that we have here in the Bay Area, so she cooperated in sending us the perfect day on her behalf.

With close friends and family in attendance, everyone watched this love-filled ceremony as these two exchanged vows and tied the knot.  Katie and Edward, I am honored to have been a part of your wedding. Congratulations again with everything.  All the best!
