Sara & Juan’s Wedding, LDS Temple, Oakland

Sara and Juan got married at LDS temple, Oakland on 4/17/10. Thanks for the trust from Sara. She booked me just by looking through my website without meeting in person since she was out of state at time of booking. We communicated via emails and it was all planned well.

It rained heavily just five days ago.  It was cold until Thursday. Then all became perfect on Saturday. It was perfect 72 Degree F with white clouds and blue sky. The air was refreshing after the rain and the flowers were blooming. The color of the bridesmaids’ dresses is cranberry, which is one of my favorite colors.  We took some wedding portraits shots around the LDS temple. There was a small river in front of the temple and flowers surrond it.  I got some of wonderful group shots also.

The wedding reception venue is at Sharon heights country club,  Menlo Park, CA. The venue is more beautiful than I thought! The high ceiling and the orange light bulbs are just like stars when it is dark outside. The receptionists are very professional and efficient. A ring ceremony was held in a separate room where the bride and groom exchanged rings. After that, there was the standard procedure of cake cutting, bouquet toss, garter toss, first dance …. People danced happily until late night.

Finally, here are the pictures!

Dolphin & Qianheng | San Francisco wedding photographer

Dolphin and Qianheng flyed a long way from Ohio to San Francisco for their wedding session with me. They found me and booked me via internet last year. We communicated many times via emails. The first time that we met was also the first time that we took pictures. The weather was perfect that day. We first took some pictures of wedding preparation at Nikko hotel, San Francisco. Then we went down to San Francisco City Hall, Legion of Honor, the Palace of Fine Arts, Japanese Tea Garden and Bakers Beach for more photos. My assistant Vicky helped a lot during the whole session and the pictures turned out great! It will take me more time to process the pictures but I would like to share some of them now since I can’t resisit the excitation. More pictures will come along the way so please check back later!
