Cristin + Luke: Married! (San Francisco Theological Seminary, San Anselmo)

Cristin and Luke's wedding was held on a very pleasant and warm summer day in San Anselmo. The chapel is located at the top of the mountain and has a gorgeous view. When Cristin and Luke were ready for the ceremony, they decided to meet before the ceremony starts. It was such a sweet and delightful moment of the bride and groom to be captured! After the portrait shots, I followed Cristin back to the bride's room and there I spotted the lovely moment of her and her beloved dog.
The joy and emotions spread into ceremony. At night, their reception started with the traditional, festive Chinese lion dance. The performance was awesome and brought the night to its climax. And the night tapered off with an unforgettable saucer dance.
Thanks to my buddy Matthias to have me be part of this wonderful and special wedding!

A Fun Day at Shoreline Park

It was a nice sunny morning with some cool breeze at the Shoreline Park. We were so lucky that the heat wave was over. And since most local schools have started already, the park was quite empty.

We found a large group of Canadian geese sunbathing by the lake when we got there. I've never seen such a big crowd before! It was fun (and somewhat challenging too I must admit) capturing the excitement of these energetic kids as they were running around exploring and inventing their own activities!

After a nice stroll around the park, we went to the aquatic center for some other fun - pedaling on the pedal boats around the lake. It was my first time going on these boats too even though I have been to this park many times. It was indeed a very enjoyable morning with Trina's family.
