Alana + Shain | Touches of Vintage Mendocino Wedding

I met Alana and Shain through a mutual friend and you’d say it was one of those weddings I just stumbled into serendipitously. I was booked by the couple with less than two weeks before the wedding. That mutual friend was someone (Hello, John Silva of Culinary Eye !) I had met just two weeks prior at a San Francisco Weddingwire networking event, that I was almost *too lazy* too attend.  It’s funny how things fate has such a strong hand in the events that led to shooting one of my favorite weddings of the year.

Alana is this amazing woman behind Etta + Billie, an amazing SF-based sustainable bath and body company.  She, hubby Shain and her team of  super creative friends put together this wedding, which was truly a labor of love. From the floral design, calligraphy on the vintage door, the blue paper pinwheel backdrop  to the potluck wedding pies – there was so many distinctive little touches that made the day truly special!

Here is the slideshow.

I have so many favorite images from this wedding. Enjoy!
