mayumi & elena got married

what a pleasure to shoot these ladies on their day of awesomeness. the day started out gray and overcast but that soon gave way to open blue skies and sunshine. squeezed between the bay and the oakland shipping yard is middle harbor shoreline park. it's an oasis of sorts. shore birds and families mingle among the wetlands here. a view of san francisco beyond is easy to see and the telescopic viewers are free! definitely a unique place for a unique family gathering. 

ceremony: middle harbor shoreline park, oakland

reception: alameda ballroom
