Tricia & Jay’s Milwaukee Art Museum Wedding in the Fall

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

I’m dreaming of stuffing, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes! The night before Thanksgiving, and yes I have a sneak for you! Tricia and Jay married in the oh-so chic Milwaukee Art Museum (architects can I hear a yeah!). The day was full of play, laughter, gorgeous lace (wowza of a wedding dress & retro veil, her mother’s originally) and wedding cheer! Not to mention my first time in Wisconsin (yum cheese curds and coffee), and the dance floor looked like a hip MTV music video right in front of me! The day before the wedding we did a mini engagement session at Alterra Coffee Shop on the lake where Jay proposed! Big thanks to my right-hand photo lady Jessie. Enjoy this sneak! Maybe you’ll ooo and ahh so much that you’ll burn calories before the big feast tomorrow!

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

What do you get when two creatives wed in the fall?! Pure yay! Kristen and Ben’s City Hall mini wedding was full of vintage inspirations, diy fall details (like the flowers, can you believe she designed and arranged them!?), lots of laughter, surprises and San Francisco charm. We met Ben at our first look spot and found a wedding date sign that he made then Kristen surprised Ben and family with a pop-up bag reception (including a banner, sparkling cider & Frank Sinatra via her ipod) outside in the plaza. Wondering where she got her dress, here! We had so much fun…this is what weddings are all about. Enjoy!

Carol & Seth’s Cultural Chic Wedding in Santa Cruz Mountains at Kennolyn

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

Get ready for GORG! Carol and Seth’s multicultural wedding sneak pops a big punch with soft and cute California details. Relaxed yet still classic, Carol and Seth’s lovey day was full of smiles, hugging and tears of joy! I had such a blast with these two photographing their love shoot that I knew it would be memorable. Their wedding was tucked away in the Santa Cruz Mountains where desert vegetation meets redwoods. Man I love this state and what an incredibly magically place to wed! Thanks to my right-hand woman Jenna! Hold on to your hats as these Chinese, Jewish and California cool traditions collide for this sweet wedding day!

Traditional Chinese door games and tea ceremony. Seth had to convince Carol’s bridesmaids that he was worthy of her hand in marriage via poems, juggling and singing. Once approved, the tea ceremony takes place where tea, treats and lucky money are shared.

Jewish Ketubah signing!

Hello!! Working away on another crazy fall season (can’t believe tomorrow is the 1st day of fall & my bday)! But let’s focus on today! I’m giving you a sneak of cultural goodness, Nina and Scott’s hybrid Indian-American wedding! Don’t let the bright colors, sparkles and vivid details fool you, this happy couple’s love was delicate and casual. Just the way I like it! The perfect combination of glam and California cool. One minute they’re dancing romantically and then next busting out into a Bollywood dance! And let’s not talk about how gorgeous they both are ;) It was a blast and a nice breath of fresh wedding air. Thanks so much to my right-hand photo lady Abi

Youna & Tim’s Serendipitous San Francisco City Hall Ceremony

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

Youna, Tim and I started our serendipitous portrait adventure in the charming Hayes Valley neighborhood just before their SF City Hall ceremony. Pretty pastels, pops of fuschia florals and a lime green bow tie highlighted their soft and charming personalities. It’s really nice photographing a petite wedding (1 of 2 weddings for Youna & Tim) because they tend to be more relaxed and care-free. Youna even showed me one of her skilled talents of piggybacking Tim (Youna, don’t worry I didn’t include that photo here)! Big shout out to Natalie Bowen Designs for the as-always chic florals! Enjoy the sneak!

Mylinh & Patrick’s Real Modern Chic Cleveland Wedding

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

A lovely, modern chic sneak of a wedding to share with you! I had the pleasure of flying out to Cleveland (1st time staying overnight) to photograph these two lovebirds’ modern diy day. We laughed, toured the city trolley style with family and explored hidden gems (the tour guide thought I was crazy for wanting to take them to the warehouse district!). The charming Chicago duo were extremely gracious and their families were beyond sweet. It was quite the change-up from my list of outdoor weddings this year, but I can see why it was indoors! (hot & humid) Big thanks to my 2nd photographer Josh! Enjoy!

Colors of the day: light pink, grays, whites and black.

Dessert/candy bar! Yummies like popcorn balls, marshmallow lollipops, rock candy, custard-filled pastries and more!

A little fun in the alley at East 4th Street.
