Brooke & James: San Francisco Fairmont Hotel & Presidio Social Club Wedding Photography

I am so excited to share this elegant winter wedding on the blog today! What a fantastic way to kick off the 2015 wedding season. Every single individual involved in this wedding was warm, welcoming, and just an overall pleasure to work with. But the most kindhearted people of all were the two who brought us together: Brooke and James. I’m a crier, so I shed tears the entire day… from beginning to end. It was a wonderful and emotional celebration and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the festivities! 

The day started at the Fairmont Hotel with this gorgeous view of the city. 

Brooke gave each bridesmaid a monogrammed satin robe to get ready in!

Just as James turned around, the wind picked up and sprinkled them both with a fine mist from a nearby fountain! It added to the element of surprise and also made for a cool effect in the photo. 

After the first look, they gave each other letters they had written to one another, then prayed together. It was a special, quiet time before the day’s events began. 

We drove to Inspiration Point for some fun and sassy wedding party photos before heading to the Swedenborgian Church! 

Their reception took place at the Presidio Social Club, which featured rows of long tables and a beautiful bar that spanned the length of the restaurant.
The dance party was EPIC!!! A full house of jumping and clapping and lip syncing, along with photo booth props that somehow made their way to the dance floor. Not to mention all the best hits of the 90′s, thanks to DJ Scotty Fox of Spintronix (he’s amazing!!). 
You can just see the joy radiating from their happy faces! Congratulations Brooke & James!!
