SNEAK PEEK // A Treasure Island Wedding at Aracely Cafe

 

Sarah & Ryan had three priorities set for their wedding: the people they love, delicious food and a ridiculous dance party. Their restaurant wedding at Aracely Cafe on Treasure Island in San Francisco was filled to the brim with all three. 

Below are just a few sneak peeks - can't wait to share their whole story!

Kristen & Chase met years ago, their relationship built on trust and music and love and laughter. A few months before bringing their first child into the world they decided to marry; alongside their dog and under the guidance of a dear friend named Rainbow.

They chose as their ceremony spot the cliffs above Rodeo Beach - having spent some of their most beautiful and some of their most painful days together with this exact piece of earth beneath them, looking out onto the Pacific.  

Below, their story: an incredible sunrise elopement at Marin Headlands, California. 

 

Outstanding in the Field // Chef Ryan McIlwraith at Jenner Headlands

 
 Outstanding in the Field at Marin Headlands in Jenner, California with Chef Ryan McIlwraith.

 

This high and wild dinner was created by Outstanding in the Field, featuring Chef Ryan McIlwraith of the Absinthe Group. Way up above the coast in the Jenner Headlands, partnered with Markegard Family, Ryan drew his inspiration from Bellota, a Spanish restaurant in SoMa where he is the Executive Chef. The meal included paella, honey and cheese, spiced raisins and greens and quite literally some of the most beautiful passed appetizers I've ever seen. Pour over the photos below, and then make a reservation for dinner at Bellota. 

I'm a California documentary wedding photographer, first and foremost, but the food culture of California is a passion of mine. I love photographing thoughtful and sustainable dinners and events, and especially love when clients combine their love of food, of gathering friends and family over a meal and fold this focus into their wedding day. 

Use this dinner as inspiration for your wedding (and then call me!).
