A Rustic Wedding at Long Branch Saloon

In early July I photographed the wedding of Rachel and Adrian’s at Long Branch Farms & Saloon, an unusual place in Half Moon Bay–a wild west town recreation.  On a bright, overcast afternoon the couple greeted their guests upon arrival as a New Orleans brass band played to start the wedding procession, setting the tone for the exuberant tone of the day that followed.   Seemingly everyone involved in putting this wedding together was near and dear to the couple, from the cake-baker to the DJ; from the chef to the bride’s brother, who graciously led the ceremony as officiant.  It was a delight to photograph this event, not only because Rachel and Adrian threw their wedding with style, ease and humor, but because their personalities emerged in every expression, gesture and detail of the day.  Congratulations you two!  I wish you all the best, and hope to share many more laughs and dance floors with you both down the road!
