While John and his groomsmen got ready at their tucked away home hidden in the hills of Mill Valley, Layne and her girls were at the famous Casa Madrona Hotel in Sausalito with a gorgeous bay view (pictured in the thumbnail above).
They chose to have their ceremony and reception at the Marin County Day School in part because of a long family legacy, and also for its unique architecture and gorgeous view of the Ring Mountain Preserve (which they both bravely ventured up for their sunset portrait session). I tried to not shy away from the fact that we were at a school but embrace it and work with the school aesthetic throughout the first look and subsequent portrait shots.
I do have to admit, I may have got a little teary eyed during John's vows, or maybe I just got a spec of something in my eye.
