J & J Wedding at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph, San Jose

Jin & Jae got married at the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph in San Jose. I took their engagement photos for them at San Francisco last month. Jin & Jae are super fun to work with.  Moreover, they look great on photos ! 🙂 The wedding preparation site is at Fairmont San Jose. The wedding reception site is at Silicon Valley Capital Club, San Jose. Before the ceremony, Jin & Jae got ready and saw each other at Fairmont hotel lobby. As usual, the most important photo is when the groom sees the bride in the gorgeous white dress for the first time.

Then we went to Santana Row, San Jose to take some bridal portraits and wedding group photos. Santana Row is my favorite places in SF bay area for glamour and wedding photos. People on the street got excited when they saw us. After that, we headed back to Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph for the ceremony. There was a traditional Korean wedding ceremony during the reception. My second wedding photographer Ben helped me on this wedding. Thank you Ben, you did an amazing job! The following are my favorite photos.

During the reception, Jin even dressed traditional Korean wedding costume. She looked great in the Korean wedding dress!

This is another Korean wedding tradition: all the “jealous” gentlemen bang the groom’s feet and the bride had to dance for the gentlemen to stop it.

There are a lot more photos and I will stop here for now. Congratulations and best wishes to you, Jin & Jae!
