san francisco surprise wedding | mr. and mrs. yount

years ago i heard about julia roberts inviting her guests to a surprise wedding disguised as an independence day party. for those who have asked me what a surprise wedding, it is when the bride + groom show up to get married right then and there with the guests not being in the know. so clearly when i was asked to photograph cara + ryan’s surprise wedding disguised as an engagement party, i was estatic to capture what i only knew the pretty woman actress to have accomplished.

of course, when anyone goes against the wedding grain, i think they are the coolest. and cara + ryan are just that. artistic, original, creative and downright cool. i mean, come on, they wanted to do the first look while sipping manhattan martinis at their local north beach beatnik bar on a busy saturday afternoon! that’s cool.

and the rest follows. like always, i will just let the images tell the story of ryan + cara’s surprise-culinary-cuisine-foodies-unite-golden-and-a-litte-eggplant-purple-wedding tell the story.

congratulations mr. and mrs. yount…enjoy your spectacular honeymoon in one of my favorites countries, vietnam!
