Alie & Nat | Palace of Fine Arts Wedding Photography


Alie and Nat both love stage theater, and that’s how they met, in Alie’s home town of Santa Cruz. They have their theater reception wedding planned for later this fall. But they were so eager to be wed that in a matter of two weeks, they planned this wedding to happen first. They gathered their closest friends and family for an intimate ceremony at the Palace of Fine Arts, and though the clouds turned into a surprise mist of rain, they embraced the good luck and recited their vows to one another. The perfect performance for the two thespians. See more of the beautiful celebration below.



Alie and Nat each had some of their closest friends on hand as their wedding party, and they each performed a “friend vows” ceremony in which each of the friends agreed to stay steadfast as a friend, supporting the marriage in the years to come. Nat and his “best Mandy” had a little cheers over tea.


Alie crowned Jillian’s bouquet with a lei.

And off they ran into their futures together!

Congratulations, Alie & Nat!
