Wedding at Shelldance Orchid Gardens

Just south of San Francisco on Highway 1 in Pacifica is a magical place. It's a bit off the beaten path but well worth the trek. Chris and I got our first taste of this lovely place while shooting Kate and Michael's intimate wedding there last month. Their wedding at Shelldance Orchid Gardens was amazing and the many green houses made for a lovely environment for this young couple to exchange vows in front of their friends and family. These two also brought us a very different idea for a reception by moving the whole kit and caboodle over to the local bowling alley which "rolled" the party into the evening. I will say this, people really come alive while bowling! All the best to this couple and we want to thank them for keeping things different and fun!
