Patricia and George 's Wedding

Geo and I got married at St. Vincent's in San Rafael. We had a medium sized wedding of about 50 people. We also had a larger reception at Gerstle Park in San Rafael. My husband always loved the look of St. Vincent's and couldn't pass it up. After the ceremony, our photographer took us to several places around the buildings and courtyards. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was such a beautiful place.

We did a barbeque/party style reception with live acoustic musicians. It was so much fun. We rented some tables and chairs and did all the decorations ourselves with some hints from the photographer. Since I am a pastry chef, I took it upon myself to do my cake. Not bad for my first wedding cake! I might do more, LOL.

We stayed until the sun started to set and drove away in our rented Bently. Then off to the Sir Francis Drake in the city for the night then our honeymoon in Italy!

OMG! When we visited with Richard, he had a nice portfolio and the price was right. We didn't expect the amazing photographs we got. These were as good as anything we saw in magazines and from the high end photographers at the wedding shows. Bravo! $1500 for 8 hours and a beautiful album and DVD. That was $1000 less than the 2nd cheapest photographer and far more talented than him, too.

I got a great dress for just under $600. I wish I spent a little more for better service. But, for the price I really shouldn't complain.

Absolutely beautiful Italian Rennaisance church, now a boy's school. Lots of great photo locations on the site and several beautiful courtyards.

Public park which is very pretty and a great place for children. We put up a large tent and our families catered the event. Since there was no power, we had a nice acoustic band perform country and folk music as well as modern cover songs.
