California Cool Wedding at the Alamo Motel | Sam + Sam

August 07, 2018

Samantha and Samuel (yes, both of their names are Sam! #2Sams4ever) got married last September at the impossibly cool Alamo Motel in Los Alamos, CA, which they took over for the weekend and turned the day into a big BBQ and dance party with all their friends. These two love to travel, and wanted to incorporate all things color and California into their day: from the gorgeous florals, brightly colored rugs, vintage glassware (collected while on road trips up and down the state), and a super colorful confetti send off, these two had all their priorities in order and I loved being a part of their day.

Half Moon Bay Moss Beach Wedding | Michelle + Eric

June 10, 2018

Michelle and Eric are two architects who love to travel and—in addition to wanting to be intimately surrounded by the people they care about most in the world—they pictured their wedding day to be fueled by adventure and fun. When their plans to get hitched in the wilds of Big Sur got derailed due to last year’s mudslides, they adapted quickly and put together a new plan closer to their home in San Francisco. Moss Beach is a sentimental spot for M + E, so in the spirit of adventure, they road tripped an hour south in a cute VW van and got married in an architecturally stunning cypress grove. I had a blast documenting their love story while we romped through giant fields of mustard, hitchhiked on the highway, and explored the California coast together before ending the evening at Bar Agricole in SF.
