Palace Hotel Wedding in San Francisco {Jessica & Hernand}

Posted by on Mar 20, 2012 in . Weddings . | One Comment

It’s been a pleasure getting to know Jessica & Hernand over the year. Since their wedding at the iconic, luxurious Palace Hotel in San Francisco, I have photographed their pregnancy and 2 baby sessions of their 1st born, Isaac! Yes, that’s right, Jessica was 7 months pregnant at her wedding.. and she looked fantastic! They flew into San Fran from their hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. A big thanks to the fabulous wedding planner, Trisha Dean, who graciously introduced them to me! It was a great day full of raw, happy emotion, love, and dancing. Congrats again to Jessica & Hernand!

    Everyone says it, but this truly was the most beautiful day of our lives….until our son Isaac arrived, of course, 2 1/2 months later!
    We knew our wedding would be at the fabulous Palace Hotel in San Francisco, we knew we wanted a Big Band to evoke the 1930s and 40s, we knew our colours, but who to photograph the event? Who would capture the pure joy and love in the room?
    Our wonderful planner, Trisha Dean, gave us a few recommendations, which we promptly checked out online. The winner was clear to us. Nicole Goddard!
    It was pointed out to us that Nicole would have travel from LA…no problem! She had to be our photographer. For us, she was the most important piece….the one who would capture the moment for us for all time, and when we looked at her work, all we could see was love and light and happiness.
    Of course, when we met Nicole we fell in love with her. She is so lovely, so patient, she immediately became a part of our family, and of course, who else to photograph our maternity session and our baby boy. We love you Nicole. Thank you for helping us capture our dreams.
    Jessica & Hernand & Isaac!
