Michael and Lesley’s portrait session got off to a sleek start when this beautiful car rolled up! Nothing better than a vintage Rolls Royce to chauffeur you around San Francisco!

We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and perfect light! Lesley felt the same way when she said, “We feel blessed that we’ve made it through the last few years and we look forward to this special day! Blessed that everything is falling into place on such short notice! From Virgin America, Ritz Carlton, vintage Rolls Royce for the wedding- we have our traditional, classy, elegant, romantic day all coming together. Looks like even Mother Nature is going to gift us with beautiful weather!”

Lesley and Michael prove that regardless of size, a ceremony space can still have great impact! This beautiful alcove in the Westin St. Francis was adorned with floating candles and white flowers that make the already opulent space sparkle!

Sometimes a bride and groom can get so wrapped up in the moment it feels like they are the only two people in the room, but for Lesley and Michael it’s a reality! We love that they took the time to celebrate each other with flair.
