Belmont Wedding Photographer, Ralston Hall Mansion Wedding, Evan and Laura

Congratulations to Evan and Laura on tying the knot!  This blog is fully loaded with images, so be patient!  We photographed their lovely Bay area wedding this summer at the Ralston Hall Mansion at Notre Dame de Namur University.  This venue caused my brain to be overstimulated with all the fancy arches, mirrors, high ceilings, staircase, balcony, etc., as I could shoot a myriad of weddings there, and they would be all different.  Both Evan and Laura rocked the photographs, and what also helped was having the first look before the ceremony, which provided us with more time to photograph, among the many other benefits.  The wedding ceremony took place on the front lawn in front of the mansion where friends and family gathered.  The rest of  evening was filled with classy toasts, photo booth images, laughter, postcard-themed table decorations, non-stop dancing, and more!  It’s an honor to photograph so many gorgeous weddings.  I really do have the best couples!   Thanks to Denise Winkelstein for keeping on top of things throughout the evening, and taking care of us. Cheers to Evan and Laura!
