I had a great time with Vivien and Jason on their dual engagement sessions, so was really looking forward to their wedding, and I was not disappointed! Vivien and her bridesmaids got ready at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel before heading over to the beautiful St. Dominic’s church, which is just a couple of blocks away from where Jason and Vivien live. So I took the opportunity to leave my second shooter Stacey to finish covering the girls getting ready while I went over to Jason and Vivien’s apartment to spend some time with the boys before walking over to the church. Jason is a San Francisco firefighter, and was lucky enough to have the SFFD chaplain perform their full mass ceremony. The reception was at The City Club and was definitely one of the loveliest receptions I’ve shot. Vivien spent tons of time preparing the details and it really paid off. The place settings, lighting, cake decorations – everything really came together. And of course the party was something special – those firefighters really know how to blow off some steam. As a special surprise bonus, Jason’s buddies from Engine 13 swung by and we got to sneak outside for a few minutes to take some photos with the truck. Stacey and I had a great time – big thanks to Jason and Vivien for including us in their special day.
