Mr & Mrs Rivera Wedding | San Francisco, CA

Judit & Samuel got hitched August 10th 2013 in the beautiful Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in San Francisco!

The day could not have started any better, the weather was so nice that day and it was quite a delight for me because it was

a nice cool break from the heat of Manteca. Even though I was stuck in traffic for a good 45 mins into SF I really enjoyed the ride

and the views of the bay, plus this might be one of the last times I get to ride on the bay bridge, or the “old” bay bridge as the new

structure is to be open to the public pretty soon.

For me, the highlight of the day was definitely the beautiful ceremony. The Church was so beautiful, hard to not to love

such beautiful sacret place. The church was filled with joy, love and peace.

they were so much fun to work with, Samuel is a Salvadorean just like me, so it hilarious to say our little slang words, making the

whole experience more memorable for me haha

these two were just so inlove, their little session was so brief, but I captured the most beautiful and intimate moments of

them two as husband and wife.
