What a fun wedding celebration for Kelly and Jimmy who exchanged vows at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco and danced the night away at the Olympic Club.
I began with Kelly the bride at the prestigious St. Regis in downtown. Most ladies already have their hair and makeup done, and the bride was just about ready. Heidy the second shooter began with Jimmy the groom at his condo with a gorgeous view overlooking the AT&T baseball stadium and Bay Bridge.
Jimmy the groom and I have something in common. He is the football coach for CCSF where I obtained a photography degree. It was such an honor to capture the couple as they tied the knot at the fully packed church witnessed by hundred of guests.
The Olympic Club Lakeside is one of my favorite reception venues for the open space and bright window lights. It is probably one of the largest golf club house in the nation in size.
The super friendly Olympic Club event coordinator Ava Chin took us on a golf cart and drove us to a scenic green by the ocean. We took some romantic portraits of the newly wed during the cocktail reception while the guests were happily mingling and enjoying the delicious hors d'oeuvres.
Lucky for the guests invited to the wedding, more food was brought in after the bountiful dinner of juicy steak, salmon, and shrimp. Right at 10:00 pm, the staffs pushed a cart full of buttery grill cheese sandwiches and hot dogs to the dance floor. What an exciting evening as the crowd danced along with the live band performed by Pop Fiction.
