The last weekend of 2007 was our final large wedding of the year where Heather and Joe celebrated their marriage at the elegant Omni Hotel in San Francisco. With a little planning, we were able to photograph them on the cable car as it passed by the front of the hotel.
When we arrived at the hotel, we began with portraits of the bride and groom.
Heather’s bridal gown was complimented by this beautiful long veil.
Joe looking handsome in his Army uniform.
A special meeting was arranged pre-ceremony so that Heather and Joe could see each other for the first time that day and spend a few quite moments together before the ceremony. We have a lot of couples that choose to do this as it gives them the opportunity to have most of their photos done before the ceremony so that they can enjoy the rest of the day with their family and friends.
Heather and her Bridesmaids.
Joe, his Groomsmen, Ring Bearer and Swordsmen.

The ceremony room inside the Omni Hotel has beautiful large windows that look out over the streets of San Francisco.
Red roses were in two arrangements atop gold pillars at the front of the ceremony site in front of the windows.
Here is Heather’s grandfather, awaiting the start of the ceremony.

Our very best wishes to you both! Thank you for choosing us as your photographers.
