The couple led the team of beautiful horses around the ranch for a leisurely stroll.

Michelle and Eric love to travel and so they decided to elope in San Francisco. They flew over from Toronto with their parents and a few close friends to have their Civil ceremony at San Francisco City Hall.

In addition to celebrating in San Francisco, Michelle also wanted to go back to the beautiful ranch Danehill Manor in Nicasio where she had a wonderful time when she was very young. It was especially challenging to design and plan a wedding remotely, but Michelle did it with amazing details. And I had the honor to document this lovely, romantic story just as it unfolded.

I was prepared to capture the excited group hopping onto the cable car but the cable car just slipped by us without stopping. You could almost feel the disappointment and worries of the group, especially the bride, since they were about to run late to the City Hall.
