Wedding Season 2012

Nice and warm weather is upon us and that means Summer is here soon and it will once again be wedding season!

Below is the fabolous venue of Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasantonrubyhill wedding Wedding Season 2012

Paula and Thuan’s Wedding at the Ruby Hill Golf Club

Paula and Thuan were referral by her maid of honor whom I have known for a very long time.  I got to know Paula and Thuan pretty well from their engagement session last year.  They were a pleasure to shoot with because they are a fun and easy going couple.  The day started with a Chinese tradition where the groom goes to pick up the bride.  The chinese wedding door games consist of the bridesmaids giving the groom and his groomsmen challenges to complete to earn entry into the house to see his bride.  A tea ceremony follows where the bride and groom offers tea to the more senior relatives.  After the tea ceremony we made our way to Legion of Honor for bridal party photos.  In traditional San Francisco fashion, it was overcast and cold but the bridal party remained in high spirits ad we still managed to capture some great shots.

The ceremony and reception was at Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton. This is a gorgeous venue with the rolling hills of the golf course in the backdrop.  The weather was beautiful with clear blue and warm temperature.  The ceremony was special as Paula and Thuan personalized it by including their dog Gizmo and writing their own vows.  We finished off the night with a twilight shot where we were able to capture some intimate moments between the newlyweds.

Denise and Cisco Wedding in Mountain View and San Jose

Denise and Cisco had an awesome wedding. They had 23 classic cars from Duke’s Car Club join in on the fun to escort the bridal party around and it was a big bridal party. The bride and groom also rode around in the father of the bride’s awesome classic 63 Chevy Convertible which was in such a perfect condition. The cars definitely got some attention driving from St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Mountain View to the reception at the Holiday Inn Mediterranean Grand Ballroom in San Jose. I also shot Denise’s cousin’s wedding last year as Denise actually referred me to her cousin before her own wedding! I would love to shoot another Olmos wedding soon because they definitely know how to party!

So clean!

Cherree and Todd Wedding at the Orinda Country Club

It was a gorgeous and sunny Spring day at the Orinda Country Club for Cherree and Todd’s wedding. The day went by perfectly and the country club was so beautiful that we could have easily just spent the whole day taking pictures outside.

Having both the ceremony and reception at a beautful place is awesome since you dont have to worry about getting from destination to destination. I am glad that Cherree and Todd decided to see each other beforehand as it really helped the schedule and also get some great shots that we could not have gotten if they didn’t do the first glance.

I love this shot!

Melissa and Adam’s storybook wedding took place at the Woman’s Club in Palo Alto. I second shot for Robert Her of NLighten Images. It was not your traditional wedding which always makes it a fun wedding. The wedding had a children’s theme and the bride and groom never failed to entertain the guests throughout the evening.

Adam and Cindy

2881056447 14c248fff4 Adam and Cindy

This past weekend, I shot at Adam and Cindy’s wedding. I was the second shooter for Cate Corbitt. I had a good time shooting the wedding and even though it was pretty tiring, I enjoyed it and will definitely want to shoot more weddings. It is nice to help take part in the supposedly biggest day of their life and to be able to capture moments that they can reflect back on. It is also nice to be around happy people the whole day. Being the second shooter can also be nice because it is not as stressful and at the end of the day, you just dump all your pictures to the main shooter. Of course you also dont get as much control of the day and the shots. 

The ceremony took part at the Treasure Island Chapel and the reception took place at the Italian American International Club in San Francisco. In between, we also made a stop near Pac Bell park to get some shots.
