Where do I possibly begin with this dream wedding?! I first met Rebecca and Charlie when they graciously trekked up from their home in South Bay to a tiny deli in Daly City for our consultation. It was immediate to me that these two were drawn together by something crazy powerful and completely right. These two simply care SO MUCH for one another. They’ve supported each other through some amazing moments. Charlie works the night shift most days, while Rebecca keeps daytime working hours. During the snatches of in-between moments, these two have managed to grow and strengthen an incredible relationship together.
We met again in Carmel-by-the-Sea for a breathtaking oceanside engagement session, and then finally, at their stunning wedding at San Rafael’s Peacock Gap Clubhouse. Their wedding date was set for the week of their NINE year anniversary and I’m so ecstatic to have been a part of such a powerful story. The entire celebration was planned perfectly, thanks to the impeccable coordination of d.Royal Engagements. Beautiful lavender-toned florals by Rare Sparrow filled every corner of the ceremony site. As the sun started to set, we snuck away for additional couple portraits at “golden hour”, which I’m so grateful to Rebecca and Charlie for including in their busy wedding schedule.
While both Rebecca and Charlie’s families and friends wore HUGE smiles on their faces throughout the entire wedding day, a few emotional tears were also shed.. especially when Rebecca’s grandfather walked her down the aisle and later danced with her in front of all the guests. Shortly after the party music started, Charlie’s extended family took over the microphone and sang an incredible live version of a traditional Arabic wedding song! Listening to all of the love resound throughout the room as Rebecca and Charlie were lifted up on chairs for their “money dance” was hands-down one of my favorite surprises of the day!
Congratulations to Rebecca and Charlie, I hope you all love the images as much as I do!
