It was a beautifully warm day on 9.10.11, perhaps the most popular wedding date of the year. Kathleen got ready in her hotel room in South San Francisco, and then she hopped into the gorgeous 1946 Rolls Royce Bentley to join her husband-to-be at the church in San Francisco. A perfect way to start the day. Meanwhile, Wesley was walking up and down the aisles of the church as the guests arrived, warmly greeting friends and family and making last minute arrangements. Finally, he stood at the front of the alter, his smile broadening as she walked down the aisle to join him. It was a lovely ceremony and a celebration of love and family.
This is really a beautiful car. I had to look it up to believe that Rolls Royce really made Bentleys back in 1946, but it’s true! Kathleen and Wesley rolled around in style all day.
I love the image I caught of Kathleen’s father as she was getting ready.
The Star of the Sea is a beautiful Catholic church right on Geary Ave. Kathleen looks so radiant coming down the aisle.
A perfect little moment between mother and daughter.
Love the beautiful light coming in from the front of the church!
I love that Kathleen & Wesley set aside plenty of time for portraits of just them. We visited a couple of spots before joining their guests at the cocktail hour.
I love this serene moment captured by my second shooter Kirsten.
This was a vista point along the side of a road in San Bruno. It was nice to just take a breath and soak in some sunshine.
The reception venue, Dominic’s at Oyster Point, was full of great views too.
The reception was filled with amazing little moments. It kicked off with some hilarious and some touching toasts.
This was really special when Wesley gave the first mother-son dance to his brother, who didn’t get to do it at his wedding in the Philippines two years ago.
Then Wesley got to dance with his mother and Kathleen with her father.
After Kathleen & Wesley had their first dance, Wesley had another surprise up his sleeves– he sang an entire song for her!
The crowd loved it.
Kathy & Wesley, thank you so much for having me at your celebration! It was a fun filled day and you are both such great people. And all the best is yet to come!
