After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

I am so excited to share this wedding with you!  Nifer and Aaron were married after sunset at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, Ca.  It was a traditional Jewish celebration in almost every sense of the word.  The ceremony began after sunset on a Saturday since Jewish weddings cannot take place on Shabbat. I always love documenting the hora and the stomping of the glass at the end of a ceremony, but I experienced new traditions that I enjoyed as well.  The Groom’s Tisch, which is a time for guests to gather around a table to sing, give toasts and hear a speech by the groom was great to be a part of.  The reception Hall was out-of-this world gorgeous!  Five foot tall centerpieces, chandeliers, candles, and dramatic lighting were just a few of the amazing details that gave this wedding a glamorous feel!  I have shot a lot of Jewish weddings and they are all so unique in their own way, but one thing that always remains constant is the fact they are ALWAYS the best party ever!  The reception was kicked off with the Hora, which I must add, am dying to be a part of someday…as in I want to hold hands and dance circles around the bride and groom then put them on a chair and throw them in the air.  Or more accurately I really just want to be tossed in the air 😉  Photographing it is pretty awesome too though! The energy in the room was electric!  I absolutely loved everything about this wedding and truly adore Nifer and Aaron…especially their humor.  These two are perfect for each other.  I pick up on so much as I document a wedding day, and one thing that stuck with me about this couple is how Aaron looks at Nifer with so much adoration and love.  Gave me goosebumps!  Congrats you two!

Their story begins in San Diego at a popular beachside bar on a Sunday afternoon in 2012.  Now, any story that starts with daytime drinking on the beach is gonna be a good one. In their case, it is the greatest one of all. Stephanie and her friend decided to go to PB Shore Club for ONE drink after catching some rays at the beach.  Well, if you have ever set a ONE drink limit, then you know that you have just jinxed yourself into at least 3 and some shots.  Just saying… When they settled into the bar, they noticed that it was filled with all young squirts except for 2 guys, one being Brian, that looked to be their age.  Like 2 sets of magnets, they all came together and began to chat.  Before they knew it, Red Bull Vodka slushies (aka RBV slushie) were flying back and the dance moves were coming out until the bar’s last call!  It is safe to say they hit it off and a week later they had their first date, which did not include RBV slushies and went on a 3 mile hike!
As a tribute to the day they first met, they used the RBV Slushie chalices as their wedding glasses!  Love it!  They had an intimate Catholic ceremony with all of their families in Burlingame before heading to Pacifica for some beachside photos and the reception.  It was a beautiful day on the coast so we took lots of photos up on the bluffs above the ocean.  Stephanie and Brian are expecting twin girls in about 3 months so we did some maternity-esque style photos too!  I absolutely LOVED her dress with the full lace back and long train!  She looked amazing!  They have so much to be thankful for and such love to give their two little sweeties on the way! I am so excited for all that they have in store and wish them all the happiness in the world!
