petaluma california

these are a few of my favorite things…

* todd’s first look with his groomsmen [not weird, hilarious]
* todd and tamara’s first look
* the vows
* oyster bar
* reception space with origami birds flying from the ceiling
* todd and tamara slow-dancing while the guests entered the reception [ie no introductions necessary]
* todd and tamara gets surprise serenade by bridesmaids
* foggy portraits
* todd and tamara surprise first dance swing-style
* todd and his brother’s synchronized performance for tamara
* todd and tamara jetted off to greece and turkey for their honeymoon [people after my own heart]
* overhearing a guest proclaim “man, this is by far the best wedding ever!”
* yes, yes it was.
