I have to be honest. Californian fall weddings are some of my very favorites. Warm colors, cooler days and evenings, and happy people in love, still dancing and dining outdoor under the open blue sky.  That was what Karen and Guy’s perfect October wedding felt like. I am very thankful that I was part of their wedding day and for their trust to capture it. It was a delightful experience for me. Their wedding took place at the beautiful outdoor wedding venue Piedmont Community Hall in Piedmont, CA among the redwood trees. Piedmont park IS where the venue is located has a very special place in their hearts. This is  the place where they play tennis since they know each other, the place where they walk their dog Nimmy and where some of the first sparkles of love stroke them. Although, their wedding had more than 100 guests it did feel like a very small intimate wedding event attended by very close friends and family of the happy couple.

Karen and Guy had a magical Buddhist ceremony by Lama under the big red trees. It was so much joy to see those two tying the knot after knowing each other for 13 years. Well, after eleven years of playing tennis and traveling the world together,  they finally realized that they were meant for each other. It’s like one of those movies, where you are best friends with a man, but then something happens and you realize that this is THE person. I call that a destiny and Karen and Guy are so lucky to share this very special relationship with one another.

It was really really beautiful wedding day. The speeches were very emotional , the bride and groom were absolutely stunning and present in the moment. The best part of our bride and groom portrait session was going to the tennis court and take some photos there . Having Nimmy, their dog in most of the photos was very unique experience for me as a photographer and  mother. I think though the whole time I was comparing it with my kids and how better behaving Nimmy was compared to them. Having her in the photos with Karen and Guy it brought even more passion and shared love to the story of their life and love.
