Rachel and Matt were married at Heinz Chapel in Oakland, and held their reception at The Lemont, atop Mt. Washington. Because Rachel and Matt were getting married at 6:30pm, they decided to have a ‘first look’ and take all of their photographs prior to the ceremony. This is when they saw each other for the first time.
And when I saw all of this PINK, I went crazy!! You may have noticed that pink is (and will always be) my favorite color.
My great friend David Burke shot with me as Craig was out of town. This is one of his many wonderful images.
I love the tenderness in this photo. (And isn’t her makeup amazing?)Her lace veil was absolute heaven to me. I adore lace.
Her veil, flowers, and dress were all to die for. She was breathtakingly elegant.
Walking down the aisle with her father.
Another great capture by Dave (and I can’t thank him enough for taking the balcony for me… it was near 100 degrees outside, so you can imagine what it was like inside of Heinz).
Heinz Chapel does not allow flower petals in the aisle, so Rachel cleverly glued them to the longest aisle runner I’ve ever seen. I’m not sure how long it took, but it was worth it!
The cake was amazing.
Rachel and Matt were incredibly light on their feet during their first dance, and then he CARRIED HER OFF THE DANCE FLOOR!! Grooms, pay attention, this was so romantic!
Sparkler exit was so fun! (And only slightly dangerous, ha).
A few of my favorite details.
