We can’t think of a more perfect place to have an intimate wedding than the venue surrounding our styled shoot today. The Lyford House, located in Tiburon, CA is a historical landmark surrounded by beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay. Lyford House is a Registered National Historic Landmark at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary. Imagine a setting on the water’s edge, perfect for outdoor weddings. Lyford House guests can stand on the terrace and enjoy spectacular views from Belvedere to the San Francisco skyline, Sausalito and more. Since it’s a bird sanctuary, visitors shouldn’t be surprised to see hawks, ducks, sandpipers and herons—good thing most guests appreciate their graceful beauty!

Emily Merrill of Emily Merrill Wedding Photography wanted to showcase local bay area wedding professionals and appeal to couples who want a more intimate setting to get married.

Check out these gorgeous photos featuring intimate details. Just look at that boutonniere—so unique!
