I’m excited to share a sneak peak of this intimate wedding at Homestead in Oakland
The key to having a successful midweek daytime intimate wedding is friendship, love, laughter, and a multi course lunch!
A little shoutout to Homestead!
“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can’t strike them all by ourselves; we need oxygen and a candle to help. In this case, the oxygen for example, would come from the breath of the person you love; the candle would be any kind of food, music, caress, word, or sound that engenders the explosion that lights one of the matches. For a moment we are dazzled by an intense emotion. A pleasant warmth grows within us, fading slowly as time goes by, until a new explosion comes along to revive it. Each person has to discover what will set off those explosions in order to live, since the combustion that occurs when one of them is ignited is what nourishes the soul. That fire, in short, is its food. If one doesn’t find out in time what will set off these explosions, the box of matches dampens, and not a single match will ever be lighted.” ― Laura Esquivel, Like Water for Chocolate
Finally, here are the photos! Enjoy!
Are you in the planning phase of your own wedding? Are you looking for a photographer around Oakland for your offbeat intimate wedding? Then give me a shout! I’d love to chat with you about capturing your special day. Oh and a side note, if you are not in the Bay Area, reach out anyway! I love to travel and I have a few places on my bucket list still where I can happily waive the travel fee. Like, basically anywhere on a mountain top.
