Tom & Bethany Wedding ~ Monte Verde Inn October 10, 2009

Tom & Bethany exchanged their vows at the Monte Verde Inn in Forest Hill, California. Tom contacted me over a year ago as I was referred to him by Negar, a wonderful “lifetime customer”! It took awhile for Tom and Bethany to settle on a location but I think they found their spot when they chose Monte Verde Inn in Foresthill; a beautiful location with lots of lovely areas to use for great photographic back drops. The wedding was coordinated by Kelly at the Monte Verde. She also provided the cake. The DJ was Sj’s Disc Jockey and the video was shot by Travis and Adriel from Artistic Imagery.

Tom and Bethany are such easy going, sweet people; kind, considerate and open. When I hang out all day with folks like this I really have to step back and take stock in how lucky I am to have the best clients! Really! I am pretty sure I wouldn’t love my job as much as I do if I didn’t have such wonderful brides and grooms to spend time with and get to know. I hope you are having a great time on your honeymoon! Enjoy these images and your slideshow….Your proofs will be up in a few weeks-

    Tom and Bethany,
    I am flattered. I am so flattered. I can’t tell you the smile that is still on my face when I read your words and realize that I had that kind of impact on you all on your wedding day.

    I feel truly blessed to have a job that I love while at the same time being able to make a difference to people on a very important and joyous day in their lives.

    It is me that was lucky to find you all: kind, generous and openhearted.

    You two are perfect for each other-

    Congratulations for finding each other!

    Lisa, we have to say that you provided the only calming effect amidst the storm, during our wedding. You were there from our engagement to the last departing guest of our wedding; providing insight and guidance to all while being ever patient with coordinators and grandmothers alike. Your knowledge and experience are reflected in every exposure. Plus your smile and kind words always put Bethany and I in the perfect mood!!

    Thanks Amber- I just watched their love story on your site- It was very well done- Great job! Tom and Bethany- I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your “blog teaser” and slideshow upon waking on a Tokyo morning- perfect! I love when I can get them out while you are still on your honeymoon! You all are awesome and I was honored to be a part of your big day! Congratulations!

    Hey Lisa,

    We’re in Tokyo!! We just woke up here at a little past 7, Friday morning, and are ecstatic about the pictures and slideshow!! Bethany and I LOVE them!! I can’t pick a favorite one as they all are so vivid and wonderful! While Bethany loves the pictures of her coming down the aisle with her Dad smiling, her Mom in tears while getting ready, and of me with the priest as she was coming down the aisle. Catching her father, Larry, smiling is a big feat!! He’s usually so reserved and quiet, I have only caught him on one other occasion smiling. It’s funny because, the rest of her family wanted a copy of the picture as they can’t get him to smile either. We love the songs you attached to the slideshow too!! We feel blessed that Negar had recommended you!! Thank you for being there for us as we love each and every picture!!! We can tell you put your heart and soul into your work!

    Thanks again,
    Tom and Bethany
