San Francisco Yacht Wedding: Amanda & John {Kissed By Tammynize}

by jacin on May 18, 2011

I love love. And details. And pretty pictures. And.. love. Amanda and John are just too adorable for words. You can see the love between them in every image - every smile, tear, laugh… every moment as captured by Kissed By Tammynize just further solidifies that these two were just meant for each other.

Aboard a yacht in the San Francisco bay, {and just minutes from my apartment!}, Amanda and John said their vows in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest. And we get to see it all today!


From Tammy, the photographer: Amanda and John both love the outdoors and love to travel. John is very active into bicycling, climbing and just outdoor sports, and Amanda is a foodie. She loves to cook and is always in the kitchen tackling a recipe or blogging about one. They both feel they are a laid back couple and describe themselves as being pretty casual. For their wedding Amanda expressed that she wanted it to be very low-key and not too serious, but also very intimate. In fact, she asked to do no formal shots during her entire wedding and wanted the whole event to captured only in candid shots. In her exact words, “I want more of people enjoying themselves.” The reason for this is because she felt that when her and John posed for pictures she found the pictures didn’t turn out very natural and I think this challenge only made their pictures that much more special because every moment captured was entirely them.

Their ceremony was held on the empress yacht. The yacht left Sausalito, CA marina and cruised around the San Francisco Bay as they exchanged their vows. After the ceremony Amanda and John had their first dance on the top floor of the Yacht privately and then joined their guest shortly after for cocktail hour. They had their Reception at Ondine restaurant and it was spectacular venue because you could see the whole city of San Francisco from it’s windows. She wore a short white alternative dress that sparkled in the sunlight and John sported a very modern grey suit.

And lastly, my favorite pic! Congrats you two!
