Hidden in the Redwoods of the bay area’s oldest picnic facility is a gem called the Saratoga Springs.  This is where Nick and Annalesa married last month and I was grateful to document their perfect wedding day. From getting ready in the silicon valley near the headquarters of Apple, we traveled through the popular hwy 9 road into this nestled area of the forest where friends and family gathered to celebrate and party the night away. Nick and Annalesa had meaningful chemistry, a great history together, and a special group of people who toasted to their richness.  As the evening continued, they share delicious custom homemade ice-cream sandwiches and then spent their energy busting moves on the dance floor.  Here are a few images from Anna and Nick’s special day and congratulations to the both of them.
