Vero and Glen’s wedding ceremony was held at the theater inside the Museum of Photographic Arts at Balboa Park in San Diego. Prior to the ceremony, they treated their guests with two amazing videos that best captured their dynamics and relationship. It was witty, funny and very sweet. Just the perfect introduction to their ceremony. In the evening the celebration was moved to the University Club atop Symphony Tower. Not only is this an amazing venue where you can see the skyline of San Diego, Thomas Bui LifeStyle made the day flow effortlessly and added their magical touch to everything. The sophisticated, modern and chic decor wowed everyone.

We really enjoyed getting to know this wonderful couple. Individually, they appear to be as opposite as one can be. Vero, ruled by her brain, is the orderly and logical kind of a girl. Glen, ruled by his heart, is a romantic and touchy-feely kind of a guy. Together they compliment each other perfectly and make the sweetest couple ever. They share the same passion and dedication for family, friends, life and each other. It is amazing how generous and caring they are. And what we love the most is they can be super brainy together yet be super goofy and loving at the same time.

Vero & Glen – You two are so incredible! Thank you so much for allowing us to document your love and devotion! We feel truly blessed to meet your amazing friends and families. We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness.

Last but not least, big thanks to Victor for assisting us! Always a pleasure working with you!

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

It was raining everyday in San Francisco up until Marina and Shing’s big day. But then the sun came out and the sky turned blue, made it the most perfect day to get married. This brought a big smile to Marina’s face all day long. Throughout the day we were surrounded by laughter and joy, and we can’t help but fall in love with this wonderful couple.

Marina and Shing were set up by common friends. Their first two dates did not go as well as one would have hoped, but Marina gave him more chances and Shing finally came through. He showed her that he is a gentleman she can trust, love, and spend the rest of her life with. That is what we saw during their wedding ceremony where they promised eternity of devotion to each other.

It was a fantastic day and a wonderful celebration of love.

Marina & Shing – thank you for having us there to document your love story. We think the world of you both and wish you nothing but love, joy and happiness together!

much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

In the beautiful wine cellar of Viansa Winery, Ed looked at Kiani with so much love that could make anyone’s heart melt.

The day started out with a drizzle that ended up pouring, but nothing could damper the atmosphere for this wonderful celebration. Family and friends smiled and sighed with delight as Kiani and Ed made their promise to be together forever.

It was really nice to see Kiani and Ed again after the engagement session last year. Kiani is already gorgeous, but on her wedding day she was absolutely radiant! Her warm smile and charming personality brighten up the room. When she spoke of Ed, her face lit up with joy that nothing can compare to. In the other room, Ed was nervous in such a sweet way. He could not wait for the day to be over and officially say Kiani is his girl.

We love that Kiani and Ed are so happy and comfortable together and we could not think of two people more perfect for each other. Thank you for having us there on your special day.

much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

Olivia and Chris live in New Jersey and booked us after exchanging a few emails. When we finally got to meet them in person during the Bay Area trip, we fell in love with them immediately! They are so sweet and down to earth. And Olivia has a wonder smile that can brighten up anyone’s day!

They are also very special because they had spend some time apart during their relationship. Long distance love has a special place in our heart. Going through that is hard but it also makes a couple stronger in their determination to be together.

Our California girl met her New Jersey boy during a company training event in Chicago. They parted with good impressions of each other, and kept in touch via emails, instant messages and online social media after they went back to their respective states. Fate intervened when Olivia was sent to temporarily support the New York office. Chris jumped to the chance to show her around and impress her, and soon they developed something very special. After two years of long distance, Chris popped the question and Olivia happily said yes. Now they both happily reside in New Jersey. Hurray for no more long distance!

Olivia and Chris’s wedding in Santa Rosa was really perfect. The happy couple, gorgeous bridesmaids, hilarious groomsmen, delightful family and friends made this day so enjoyable.

Congratulations again! Thanks for having us there. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

Here is a sweet love story we are excited to share. It’s about a San Francisco girl that traveled the world, only to meet her love, a Peruvian, back where she started from.

The story happened in Oakland. Hillary was Luis’s client. Quit frequently, a very stressed out Hillary would run to the print shop where Luis worked at with last minute orders. A very gracious Luis would complete these rush jobs with a smile, thus helping Hillary calm down and leave with a smile. After a few months of this, Luis asked Hillary out so they can get to know each other better. The dinner date lead to many more dates, where they realized they found true love & realized they are soul mates.

Family and friends from California, Wyoming, Virginia and as far as Peru came to celebrate this wonderful couple. Their ceremony was at the St. Rose Catholic Church in Santa Rosa with a bilingual ceremony in English and Spanish. Their beautiful reception was at Tra Vigne in St. Helena. The decor was cute and the food was divine! The reception ended with many wonderful dances, with everyone showing us their passion for dancing and hardcore salsa skills.

La manera de la cual se iluminan sus rostros al mirarse el uno al otro, es simplemente maravillosa. Con cada movimiento y cada toque que se dan, irradian la felicidad que sienten al estar juntos. Gracias por permitirnos ser parte de este día y poder documentar tan bellos momentos. ¡Muchísimas felicidades!
Ahora, relájense y disfruten de toda la alegría que llenará cada una de sus vidas al haberlas unido.

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy
