Congratulations Marite and Chris!

May 17, 2008
Olema, California

This is the space where I get to show and tell you all about my client's big day and a few of the wedding professionals we work with. The best thing I can say about working with Marite: she didn't stress out and has a positive attitude that's contagious. Marite and Chris knew from the start they wanted their wedding at The Olema Inn and restaurant below. It is a West Marin landmark, a few miles from The Point Reyes National Seashore and Stinson Beach, ideal for those smaller, more intimate gatherings.

Periwinkles, lavender, green and orange were colors Marite and Chris worked into their day through florals, the food everyone ate and accents in their clothing. Looking at these magnificent arrangements from Verde Flowers, I think of nature enhanced.

Orange tulips and mixed foilage.

Sweet peas, Lillies of the Valley and Hyacinth make a beautiful bouquet.

A vanilla confection by Fat Angel Bakery, tastes as delicious as it looks. Inside: strawberries and whipped cream.

Here's one shot of Marite's gown, a body-hugging silk crepe, lined in habotai. The hand-rolled florals on her side drape and in her hair were handmade out of the same fabric as her gown. Here she's modeling an embossed chiffon stole. She's truly gorgeous here, her joy so apparent.

Kid chic!

Ain't she sweet? Daughter Natalia's dress is a cotton/silk blend. The lavender underskirt and sash are made of linen. She is carrying a handmade basket by Cindy Brooks of Brass Paper Clip.

Kudos to Amy Perl who showed such sensitivity photographing Marite, Chris and Natalia in their most intimate moments here.

I'll be quiet now; brilliant photography needs no words . . .

And we couldn't have done it all without . . . .
