It has been a strange year weather-wise in northern California. When I first started talking with Jack and Ivy about their wedding, the threat of rain never crossed my mind for their June ceremony. But the forecast did indeed call for rain that week. They tented the dinner area at 12 Oaks in preparation but held firm that they would be married in the outdoor garden. Everyone said Jack is a gambling man and he was doubling down on this. Though it rained much of the morning, patches of sun started coming through as the ceremony hour approached. We did many of the family photos before the ceremony and spent a lot of the time running back and forth for cover under the porch of the house. There were still a few sprinkles as Ivy and her dad made their way down the aisle but that was it for the rain that day. Sunny skies for the rest of the ceremony and reception. And the tent turned out to be great help, in any case: It kept the grass from getting soaked. Either way they threw quite a party.
Getting ready at the Four Seasons in Palo Alto.
Big thanks to Liz for the great groom prep shots
Jack is pretty happy with the sun
