It was a gorgeous sunny day in Burlingame on the day of Jenni and Gary’s wedding. The venue was Kohl Mansion and it was unbelievably beautiful. Built between 1912-1914 by local architects Howard and White, it has a crazy interesting history that you can read more about here. The Mansion is a perfect blending of modern architecture and old world charm, with grand ceilings and fireplaces. Fireplaces so huge that I walked into one while setting up thinking it was the doorway.
While preparing the proposal for my bride Jenni, I came up with two different options for the ceremony space, pictured below is what she choose. I don’t think it could have been a more perfect choice. With floor to ceiling windows providing bright natural lighting, our floral “ball” on either side framed the space where they recited their vows. This was the first appearance of our custom white wood pedestals shout out to my dad, Eric, for building them! The mantle in the ceremony space second photo down looked a little bare, and I happened to have some gold painted manzanita branch and jasmine vine on hand to dress it up. I love how simple and elegant it turned out.
Please enjoy the gorgeous photos of this wedding taken by the talented photographer Emily Blake, and one of the highlights of my 2015 wedding season.
Thank you Jenni & Gary for having me be apart of the happiest day of your lives!
