Although the weather was threatening rain all morning, nothing could put a damper on Caroline and Adam’s wedding day. Clouds came and went, it even decided to sprinkle for a few minutes, but once it was wedding time there was nothing but sunshine and smiles. Guests who traveled from far and wide were able to enjoy California in all of its glory.
Caroline and Adam decided to hold their wedding north of San Francisco near Point Reyes at the beautiful Strauss Home Ranch. This property is on the coast of Tomales Bay and, with its breathtaking views and towering eucalyptus trees, made the perfect backdrop for Adam, Caroline and their guests to enjoy a spring day in California.
This wedding was full of wonderful details. Caroline not only made the cake and floral arrangement on the chuppah, she also foraged for many of the plants and flowers that adorned each one (during their engagement session we bonded over our enjoyment of foraging for edible plants in the wild). Adam, always a man with a mission, spent countless hours tracking down his limited-edition suit in just the right size after finding out it had been discontinued. He even brought along his own medium-format camera (which we also bonded over during their engagement session) to snap a few personal photos of Caroline during their portraits.
To say that I loved this wedding would be an understatement. It was at an immensely beautiful location with great weather and wonderful details. It gave me an opportunity to visit SF again after moving back to Denver. It was an intimate wedding with fun guests. But most of all, Caroline and Adam are the type of people who you can’t help but be drawn to. As individuals, they are both interesting, enjoyable and fun to be around, but when they are together they have a gravity that pulls you in and won’t let go. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of their wedding day as I did.
