Minimony wedding in Burlingame, CA -Aime + Brian

Aime and Brian had a very large wedding planned at The Bohemian Club in San Francisco when Covid hit so they opted not to wait and have a smaller gathering with just family at his parents private home in Burlingame, California. It was an intimate affair or what the industry is calling a minimony these days but it was not short on love and emotion. Their mothers read toasts and well wishes to the bride and groom at the reception from all their friends all over the world wishing they could be there in person. Tears were flowing but gratitude for the love between Aime and Brian and their need to start their lives together was the highlight of the evening. These two know that their love is way stronger than a big glamorous wedding and they will stand together no matter what life throws at them. I’m honored to photograph their wedding and wish them all the love in the world.

We photographed Aime and Brian’s wedding couple shots at The Embassy Suites in Burlingame, Ca before heading over to Brian’s parents home for the ceremony and reception.

The wedding reception table was so beautifully placed on their balcony overlooking the entire valley in Burlingame. They put out blankets for every guest so they would be cozy when it started to get cold.
As the sun went down the lights came on at their house and illuminated this beautiful new married couple.

Toasts and laughter rang throughout the evening and everyone said it was more special being with just family. They plan to have a big wedding reception once the world is safer and I plan to photograph every moment for this remarkable and resilient couple. Cheers to the next chapter of your lives!
