Dane & Nate
The Wedding Day

This Wedding. Dream Venue, Dream Couple, and Dream Fashion. Maria and I truly could not have asked for more amazingness from this couple. There was some sort of chemistry magic that happened when meeting Dane & Nate for the first time, it was easy to see that we would be forming a life long love for one another. Because this was a destination wedding and Dane is a crazy talented designer, Maria and I knew we needed to not only photograph their engagement and wedding, but a Day After shoot with the newly married couple, her fashion and our vision. We have far too many to post here on the blog, so be sure to check out our weddings site www.JenniferSkogWeddings.com to see the entire event!


And... Utterly Engaged published a 10-page spread of Dane & Nate's Wedding that has left us completely humbled and SWOONING!!! Thank you Utterly Engaged, you are simply so so stunning.

Dane + Nate's Secret Garden Wedding

The only thing I can do when thinking about this incredible wedding experience is take a huge breath in and exhale. It was so magical it leaves me breathless for a couple of moments. From the minute Dane & Nate booked us for their dream wedding at Carmel's Santa Lucia Preserve, Artist & Designer Dane started sending us her inspiration and ideas. We LOVED Dane's personal style and the fact that she wanted our input in big decision making things like wedding colours and even her incredible jaw dropping Inbal Dror gown. Dane's creative vision of Old World meets Secret Garden was seamlessly coordinated by Elle of A Bride's Best Friend, florist Emily at SoulFlower and Dane's mother, Paula.

The following day, Maria and I spent the day dreaming up our seductive Fashion Bridal Shoot we had scheduled with Dane and Nate the next morning. I took inspiration from venue, flowers and her gown's silhouette for the dramatic hair and makeup. We also used the flowers from the wedding to fashion a dark red bouquet to go with her lip colour.

We could not imagine a more fitting for publication to feature Dane & Nate's Wedding and the 10 page spread has left us completely humbled and SWOONING!!! Thank you Utterly Engaged, you are simply so so stunning.

Casa Madrona Vow Renewal Part II

Here is the second part of Amber & Brad's luxurious seaside vow renewal ceremony on the balcony of Casa Madron's Alexandrite Suite. Following the private ceremony, we headed down to the docks, I simply love how Amber's couture gown she had design in Australia flowed with the wind! The bride and groom and several of their guests traveled from all ove rthe world to celebrate along Amber's Native California Coast.

PS Does she look a little familiar? Yes! She's the twin sister of my gorgeous bride, Hilary (who just had the most darling baby girl btw) whose wedding I photographed in Italy!!

Casa Madrona Vow Renewal Part I

Overlooking the San Francisco Bay from the mansion balcony of Casa Madrona, Amber & Brad's vow renewal ceremony was such a dream. Following the ceremony we headed down to the docks, I just love how the mansion provided the most dreamy backdrop! Guests mingled all night while enjoying the fresh air and luxurious vibe, noshed on sushi, tapas and cake made from fine cheese wheels.

Hilary & Sean Tie the Knot on the Amalfi Coast
Part Two

Here is the second part of Hilary & Sean's dreamy Amalfi Coast wedding! We have only begun to scratch the surface of this incredible venue! Wait until you see the Crypt where the newly wed couple celebrated with dinner and dancing. AMAZING!!!

Words from the Bride and Groom
Un invito ad amare – Some say it’s not where you are but who you're with that matters, we decided to combine the two. A late summer wedding on the Amalfi Coast of Italy with our closest friends and family, what could be better?

The inspiration was simple – Natural beauty meets ethereal elegance; the biggest hesitation was defining the theme. I just had an idea of the look I wanted which was an organic, effortless, romantic vibe.

Each location was carefully chosen to exemplify the “destination” in Destination Wedding. We knew that if we got it right, our guests would deliver the final contribution: their own unique love and energy, making this an unforgettable trip. The wedding dress: I decided to work with local San Francisco talent, Suzanne Hanley at Atelier des Modistes. The dress holds special significance since it is one of a kind, and involved a monthly ritual involving my fiance in the quaint neighborhood of Russian Hill. Sean often enjoyed beer and pizza next door while the Powell/Hyde cable trolley passed by, waiting hours as Suzanne and I perfected our vision. Luna Convento for Welcome Dinner – an ancient coastal tower in the town of Amalfi. Designed to set the tone and create the high-level of excitement which was to carry throughout the rest of the week. The décor was kept simple to highlight the beauty of the venue – all white flowers with the world- famous Amalfi lemons incorporated in the floral arrangements.

Villa Cimbrone Wedding Day – the photos speak for themselves. The villa’s origins can be traced back to the 11th century. Once the private estate of a famous Italian aristocrat, now an exclusive 5 star getaway in the quaint town of Ravello.
