Kristin + Omar | Married! – Terra Gallery Wedding

Happy 2010 all!  I’m officially back at blogging and getting caught up on all of our fantastic late 2009 weddings.  First up is Kristin and Omar’s wedding.  Kristin and Omar have a great sense of style, and are some of the most easygoing, pleasant to be around clients I’ve had all season long.  Let’s jump into the images!

iPhone to the rescue!  The guys realized they didn’t know how to tie a real bow tie when the time came. They found an instructional YouTube video that guided them through it.

Love the bright red lipstick!

We did a first sight moment on the roof deck of Hotel Vitale, which is where the getting ready took place.  One of my favorite SF Hotels.

The roof deck had some amazing views!  It was fleet week too, so there were Blue Angels roaring overhead during these photos.

This couch was MADE for these guys!

I love this curtain we found.  That and the lighting we used really amped up these portraits, and really suit the glam look that Kristin and Omar achieved.

This is one of my favs of the season, no doubt about it.

I got a little first dance sneak preview near the hotel.

This cracked me up!  She headed in to hand back the bouquet just a little bit early, and they weren’t finished kissing yet.  Her reaction was priceless.


We had to brave SF traffic to get this one, but it was well worth it!

The days details.  I adored the yellow and all of the birdcages!  The gorgeous florals were by Brook Schweers from Petals and Posy, the dress by Amy Kuschel, videography was by Slava Basovich,  one of the coolest videographers I’ve worked with.

Sometimes the stars just align for a cool ring shot.  We played with the typewriter they had brought along for messages to the couple, and the “K” and “O” were luckily enough right next to each other.

The mariachi’s were awesome!

They had brightly colored Ray-Ban (ish) glasses for the whole wedding party to wear on their entrances into the reception.  Kristin’s were yellow of course, and Omar’s were the real deal as a gift from Kristin earlier in the day.

First dance moments:

Omar’s Mom was a great dancer!

Kristin’s Dad getting a reaction during the toasts.

There were a few performances with friends and family getting in on the act.  My favorite were these fellas, they were hilarious.  I hope that was their intent. 🙂

A scotch and two cupcakes, cuz that’s how he rolls.

We’ll finish things off with kids on the dance floor:

Thanks to Kristin and Omar for sharing their day with us!


  • Kristin - Amazing job Cliff! No one would have captured the party like you, you caught all the emotions of our day. I’m eternally grateful for your pictures, thank you!

  • Karen - That was an event of a lifetime… and you certainly captured all the magic and joy! Thanks so much –

  • Brieana - I am visiting as a fan of Cliff’s work…these pictures are just stunning and all the details are breathtaking!!! I especially love the couch shot, aerial view of dancing, kissing with street sign and bridge in back and the rings on the typewriter.

    A question for Kristin: As a bride to be myself who is also using bright yellow as my accent color…I have been on an endless search for the perfect yellow peeptoe shoes. Would you kindly share who makes these shoes? Are they dyables, and did you add the great feather piece yourself? AMAZING. I also have to comment on the flowergirl dresses…are they available for purchase anywhere? They are precious. Thank you and congratulations!!!

  • imthiaz houseman - beautiful set. looks like such a great wedding. i love the first photo…

  • jessamyn harris - what a fun wedding!! beautiful photos 🙂

  • Kristin - To Brieana- Thanks for the kind words! Yes, the shoes are dyeables that I purchased from, dyed at a cobbler in SF, then added all the fun feather details. The wedding was mostly homespun (talented friends and family) so the flowergirl dresses were made buy a family friend from fabric I purchased at Silkroad in Oakland. Congratulations to you too…happy planning!

  • Cliff - Thanks so much everyone! Thank you Kristin for answering Brieana!

  • Calvin - Those images did work out on the roof top. Love it. The photos are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  • Brieana - Thank you Kristin…and thank you Cliff!

  • Manus Chau - awesome wedding. great details… love the theme.

  • Omar - Hi Cliff! Happy new year to you and thanks so much for sharing. Our pics look great =)
