Hey everyone! I just returned from an awesome weekend in San Francisco. This was the first of 3 weddings in the Bay Area this summer. And I was really looking forward to this one, since Tiana is the niece of my friend Brian. I’ve known his family since ours days in college, so seeing them all again was like coming to a family reunion (I feel like an adopted relative).
Back in 2001, I shot the wedding of Brian’s cousin, Lorelei. It was my first “official” wedding. We used their video as our demo to help us launch our business. And although our style has changed over the years, it is still one of our favorites. Seven years later, I was back up in Northern Cal to capture another special moment in the lives of the De Leon family…Tiana and Nathan’s wedding.
Tiana and Nathan have a wonderful story. They have been friends since they were kids. They dated through high school and college, and endured a long distance relationship when Nathan played football at UNLV. They got engaged as soon as he graduated in 2006, welcomed their first child, Kiana, last August, and finally celebrated their beautiful wedding this weekend. It was great to be part of the entire weekend celebration… from the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding day, and then the after party at their home in Benicia.
Here is the Next Day Edited video that features highlights from the ceremony at Mount St. Mary’s college in the foothills of the East Bay and the celebration at The City Club high atop downtown San Francisco.
A special shout out to Uncle Roger for the awesome sinigang, to Seb for the delicious crepes, and to Brian for hanging out and going to the Indian Restaurant at 1 a.m. And thank you to Tiana and Nathan, and to the Kenion, White and De Leon families for the hospitality. I had a wonderful weekend.
