I have to admit – I love a good party. Good whiskey, great music, and some people that just want to let loose and get a little crazy.  That is just what Kayley and Stephen delivered for me to document on their outdoor Lafayette wedding day.

There was already a special bond in my heart for Kayley. I remember meeting her in my old stomping grounds of Hayward to chat about her wedding day. Both her and her mother were sweet and warm to me and were swapping stories from growing up in the Hayward / Castro Valley area. I knew that this wedding would be filled with my kind of people. You can imagine how stoked I was when Kayley called me and said that they wanted to book me.

From High school sweethearts to man and wife. Two kids and years of memories and there they stood under that beautiful forest canopy, and sealed the deal on their love story. There is something really special about watching a couple be able to have their kids as part of their wedding day celebrations.  After the emotional ceremony, speeches and dances, it was now time for a kick ass dance party that went all night.  And damn do us Hayward kids know how to party.
