Any crazy plant ladies out there? Not only is the outside of the greenhouse structure the perfect white ceremony backdrop, the interior is full of tropical plants! Check out a recent engagement session I photographed there!

This place is so iconic to SF and right by the water! You can easily see the Bay Bridge from outside and hear the romantic ticking of the train departure sign.

Asian Art Museum

Stairs at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, perfect for a wedding ceremony.

This place has class for daysssss. Gives you that New York Public Library vibe here on the West Coast!

SF Proper Hotel

The best rooftop bar in SF! This boutique hotel was designed by genius, Kelly Wearstler, so obviously it’s freaking amazing! One of my favorite spots to grab a drink at sunset! Take a peek at the wedding I shot there!

The lightness of this place makes me feel like they took the best of Malibu and combined it with the best of Sonoma.

Chateau St. Jean

Literal perfection – everything you’d expect to find in Sonoma (or the south of France for that matter). Wanna see for yourself, check out this wedding I had the pleasure of shooting!

Best Wedding Venues in the East Bay

Oakland Museum of California

The entrance of the Oakland Museum, a beautiful venue for an event or wedding.

This place is perfect for the artistic & creative couple – plus, there’s a great view of Oakland & Lake Merritt from the terrace – bonus!

Wente Vineyards

The East Bay actually has a totally thriving wine country of it’s own! It’s called the Tri-Valley area & Wente is a gorgeous spot right in the heart of Livermore. Fall in love with this venue by checking out this wedding I shot!

Ruth Bancroft Garden

Want a Palm Springs wedding vibe without having to leave the Bay? Here’s your answer!

Temescal Brewing

Temescal Brewing exterior in Oakland, California. The branding of Temescal Brewing is second to none.

I’ll be honest – I don’t know if these guys allow weddings for just anyone, but I’ve seen them do at least one. This spot is one of our favorites in our town to grab a cold beer and chill – the interior is cute af and the patio is so relaxing and perfect for a laid-back reception!

Best Wedding Venues in NorCal Destination Spots

Tahoe Mountain Club

Beautiful night sky at the Tahoe Mountain Club.

Lake Tahoe is an incredible destination spot! The view from this balcony is insane – plus, you can take a fun gondola ride and if you did a winter wedding, there’d be snow!!

Bear Flag Farm

Lavender fields at Bear Flag Farm. In the distance a large event tent is up for a wedding.

Iconic lavender fields with the whimsical ferris wheel in the back! It was voted the #1 wedding venue for great service in the American West by BRIDES Magazine and one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveller.

BLOC Venue

The Bloc Venue in Sacramento California is the perfect place to plan your ideal wedding.

This place is all about TEXTURE! White brick, natural brick, garage doors, it’s just stinkin’ cool.
