Dazzling Wedding on the Water | Sausalito Yacht Club

092218ER415_Sausalito Yacht Club Wedding_Buena Lane Photography.jpg

When Amy moved to Mill Valley to be with Kacey, the Sausalito Yacht Club soon become an extension of their living room. Kacey grew up sailing locally and around the world and the two share a love of the water. They really wanted their wedding to feel like their guests were coming to their house for a nice dinner.

Amy and Kacey arrived to the yacht club in supreme style aboard the Schooner Freda B. Guests watched on from the dock as they shared vows, rings, and raised their personalized flag. Cake cutting and loving toasts were followed by a magnificent surprise: a fireworks show over the water! It was a dinner party not to be forgotten.

Intimate Ceremony at Cathedral Beach, Yosemite

Intimate Yosemite Wedding_Buena Lane Photography_000063830005.jpg

Anson and Maya wanted to show their out-of-town friends a great San Francisco weekend, culminating with a big, boisterous Russian wedding, but when they thought about where they wanted to share their vows, Yosemite felt right. They fell in love on weekend climbing trips as they fell asleep under the stars and they wanted to share this magical place with close family and friends.

The resulting itinerary gave them the best of both worlds. The vodka toasts and spirited hora would follow in San Francisco on Saturday night, but first, they shared a quiet ceremony along the river beneath El Capitan. The small gathering allowed them to be more personal and vulnerable, and Anson had many eyes watering with his surprisingly sentimental vows.

Radiant Late Summer Wedding at Las Positas Winery

Las Positas Wedding_Buena Lane Photography_000092030016.jpg

Warmth and smiles emanated from this late summer wedding at Las Positas Winery in Livermore. Jeff and Enza wanted a small wedding, filled with love. They’d visited Las Positas Winery for years and loved the small hidden-gem vibe, and, of course, the wine.

Every one of their guests knew them both and had contributed to their love story in some way, helping to provide the feeling of a small, intimate wedding. Much like Enza’s radiant loving smile, their wedding day was bursting with love - and 90s slow jams.

Modern Rituals | San Francisco Wedding at Home

000094120012.jpg

It's obvious to Alina's and Jason's closest friends - and those they've just met - that a warm, gracious welcome and open doors are intrinsic to who they are. Every Sunday, they invite friends and family to celebrate the shabbat in their kitchen, and send them home with two loaves of homemade challah - one to eat and one to give away. Their home is the gathering spot, the place where they make their memories, and the place where they wanted to get married.   

Before the ceremony, the women gathered upstairs for a calm and sweet bedeken, while the men cheered and sang across the hall. Alina had a touching, heartfelt blessing for every loved one who entered, but it was her brothers, three large tough-looking guys, who teared up before she could even speak. 

Just as Alina and Jason had hoped, the day was filled with a sense of community, joy, love, and playfulness. Their wedding was a lively one, with guests laughing, dancing, and singing well into the night!

Like most things in Judaism, Alina + Jason's wedding was infused with ritual and symbolism. Alina wrote their ketubah herself and over many weeks, their loved ones decorated it with the wax from shabbat candles.
