Adam and Natalia tie the knot!

Adam and Natalia might be the sweetest people I will ever meet. I have worked with Adam and his event company, Straus Events over the past few years at events like Small Business Week in San Francisco and others. I met lovely Natalia while photographing her fabulous son, Anthony at Alamo Square Park. I am so honored that they chose me to photograph their wedding at Stafford Lake in Novato. The day started with Natalia, Anthony and her girls at the Four Points hotel in San Rafael where Natalia got all dolled up! Her dress was a 50’s inspired skirt and top handmade for her from She had the cutest details too! Anthony was dressed just like Adam except he had a cute little hat! The weather could not have been better; warm, but not hot, with a lovely breeze. The ceremony was under two huge willow trees that provided an intimate space. Adam said a special vow to Anthony which did not leave a dry eye in the audience… it was so sweet. Lunch was served family style which was a fun way for everyone to interact. Cake, Dancing, Bocce and more dancing rounded out the afternoon. It seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves and loved being in the truly majestic surroundings. Congratulations to the two sweetest folks!!
