Belmond El Encanto Wedding - Alison+Vas

Alison and Vas were married at the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church with a beautiful reception at the Belmond El Encanto in the Riviera Ballroom.  When Alison and I first spoke on the phone, I instantly felt like we would become friends.  There was something that just clicked.  She knew that there was no way I couldn't be their wedding photographer, and I knew I would absolutely love to be a part of it!  Alison and Vas met through work, made the long distance relationship work for a few years before he proposed and they decided to get married and that Alison would move up to San Francisco to live with him.  You can just feel the love radiating between these two and their families when you're around them.  Their wedding day at the Belmond El Encanto was simply perfect and I'm so thrilled that I was able to share it with them!
