V&D| Cinnabar Hills Golf Club Wedding

Virginia and Derek got married at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in San Jose, one of my favorite wedding venues in San Francisco Bay Area. Virgina and Derek has always had great ideas about photos and I learned it happily from our boat engagement session in San Francisco. The wedding started with traditional Asian tea ceremony. To make the wedding unique, it started raining on the wedding day. It is extremely rare to rain in April in Bay Area but it happened. The result are some beautiful shots that many wedding photographers would love to have in some unique weather. The wedding ceremony was held in the rain, which turned out to be really nice. My assistant photographer and I had to apply some protection on the camera even the cameras are weather proof, because such big rain can easily cause trouble to the professional gears. To make things short, the wedding turned out to be very beautiful and we had a wonderful time.

The following is a sneak peak of the wedding at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club . More photos are coming!

The following is a classic photo of the bride and groom in the rain holding a lovely umbrella.

What a gorgeous set! So beautiful!!!

V&A| San Jose Japanese Friendship Garden Wedding

Viviana and Alex got married at the scenic Japanese Friendship Garden in downtown San Jose, CA. Japanese Friendship Garden is a beautiful wedding venue in south Bay Area. Viviana and Alex are from Italy and they decided to get married in America. Viviana decided to have fun and not to wear a wedding dress to keep it simple. It was a day of joyfulness. The weather was beautiful too. The wedding ceremony was at the tea house inside Japanese Friendship Garden. There were lots of tourists at Japanese Friendship Garden. But all the people were so nice and accommodating, which made the photography work at the bridge area very easy. The red bridge at the Japanese Friendship Garden is such a popular spot that everybody wants to take photos there 🙂 We even had a small adventure by going into the bushes to get the shot of the bride and groom under a blooming cherry tree. When it was dark, we took the last set of photos.

The following are some selected photos from this wedding in Japanese Friendship Garden, San Jose, CA. Congratulations to you, Viviana & Alex!

J&R| The Bridges Golf Club Wedding

Jessica & Rich got married at The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, CA. I worked with Jessica and Rich for their engagement session in South Bay area last summer. Now it is Winter time. It is raining season in Bay Area in January. Jessica and Rich made good usage of the rain with some nice umbrellas. We did the first look for the cute couple during the rain break. When the first look session was done, it started raining again. The wedding ceremony is indoor with nice decoration. After the ceremony, we went to the tunnel area for more photos. I took the last set of photos for the bride and groom in the end.

The following are some selected photos from Jessica and Rich’s wedding at the Bridges Golf Club. Congratulations to you, Jessica & Rich!

Absolutely stunning photos

H&D| Willow Heights Mansion Wedding

Helen and David got married at Willow Heights Mansion, Morgan Hill, CA. Willow Heights Mansion is nestled in the western hills of Santa Clara County, between San Jose and Morgan Hill, where the serene beauty of Bay Area’s natural landscape surrounds panoramic views of the valley below. I worked with Helen and David for their engagement session in San Francisco several months ago. Now it is Winter time. Winter time in Bay Area is still pretty nice, though a little bit chilly. We did the first look inside  Willow Heights Mansion. It turned out really well with the stairs backdrop and the mirror in the hallway. Both Helen and David are from Korean. The wedding ceremony is a western style instead. Throughout the day, we can feel the love and connection between the lovely newly wed. When it is dark, we took the last set of photos for Helen and David.

The following are some selected photos from Helen & David’s wedding at Willow Heights Mansion. Congratulations to you, Helen and David!

K&O| Cathedral of Christ the Light Wedding

Kathleen and Orion got married in great Bay Area around Christmas time last year. Their wedding ceremony is at Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. Cathedral of Christ the Light is a landmark edifice and home parish of the Diocese of Oakland. The architecture of the cathedral is simply stunning. Kathleen and Orion chose this landmark building for their wedding ceremony, which turned out to be really beautiful. The bride and groom’s reception is at Scott’s Seafood Jack London Square. Scott’s Seafood Restaurant is located on the harbor with impressive view of Oakland Inner harbor. This is a full day wedding with lots of laughter and love. The splendid architecture, beautiful Christmas light and joyful atmosphere made the whole day a happy journey.

The following are some selected photos of Kathleen & Orion’s wedding at Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. Congratulations to you, Kathleen & Orion!
