Arriving at Gillian and Fabrizio’s wedding was like showing up to spend the day hanging out with two friends I hadn’t seen for a while. Ever since we first hung out I knew we would have a blast together. It’s hard to explain in words how much fun it was to be at their wedding. What I can say is that their wedding was held on my birthday, and I can honestly say I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day. In fact, I told my wife this the night before the wedding. I loved that every few minutes was punctuated by a heartfelt laugh. I loved the relaxed nature of the day and the joy of friends and family. I loved that Fabrizio had a grin on his face that stretched a mile. I loved that Gillian freed her inner supermodel and allowed me to take some of the most gorgeous bridal portraits of my career. I loved the flowers, the architecture, and the meaningfulness of the Santa Clara Mission, on the campus of Santa Clara University where Fabrizio and Gillian fell in love. I loved Gillian’s attention to details. I loved the Italian music that filled the reception hall. And now I love that I get to share just a few of the hundreds of gorgeous images I have from their wedding.
Thanks to the ever talented Josh Gruetzmacher for coming along for the day and shooting the lights out. Among others, this last image is his.
