Believe it or not, there are not many places in the San Francisco Bay Area where you can get married while overlooking the ocean so James & Brandee’s wedding is extra special because they found a way to make it happen. They were married at Dipsea Gardens which is located on a bluff above Stinson Beach. They even managed to order up some rare hot summer weather for their Labor Day weekend wedding as well.
So what kind of wedding do you get when you have a beautiful couple, their beautiful dogs, a stunning venue, and delightful wedding guests? A one-hell-of-a-party-kind-of-wedding, of course! (As evidenced by the dancing photos at the end.) But, I’m getting ahead of myself. The day started off with a first look, followed by a tea ceremony. They exchanged touching, tear-jerking vows during the ceremony. Everyone was rapt in attention and awed by the scenery of the glittering waters down below. During the speeches it was so much fun to hear James & Brandee’s friends and family sum up different parts of their relationship, starting in high school!
One of my favorite moments was when James got just a little cheeky during the cake cutting dabbed frosting on Brandee’s nose. There is a photo where they are laughing right after it happened. Brandee is moving so quickly she is a little blurry and I just love the way it adds to the feeling of the moment they are sharing.
Many congrats to these lovebirds! Be sure to check out a list of their talented vendors at the end.
