I hope everyone had a great New Year’s celebration! I was lucky enough to spend it at one of my favorite venues in San Francisco with many of my favorite people, watching my pals in Happy Body Slow Brain debut a new song and bring down the house. Can’t think of many better ways to ring in the new year.

My last wedding of 2011 was for a lovely academic couple, held at Mills College in Oakland, CA. I really enjoy the intimacy of a small wedding, and I think this was the first time I’ve been served breakfast at one! Not to mention it was the first time I had done a wedding at a college (which apparently have chapels… didn’t know that).

The room was super unique… round, with the alter in the center, and a large pipe organ on the back side. Very dimly lit, which was not conducive to photography but sure had a great atmosphere, and I managed to get some cool photos regardless.

This couple is really sweet, and I thoroughly enjoyed that they appreciated my stupid jokes throughout the day.
