Fate brought Angel and Ryan together in China, where Angela was hosting a cooking show and Ryan was running his English school. They continued their love story in Michigan and soon they will be moving back to the Bay Area again. They are smart, funny and such a joy to work with. Did we mention Ryan speaks fluent Chinese? Probably even better than Mark’s :)

The wedding was at Wildwood Acres Resort, a secluded, beautiful venue in East Bay. Family and friends gathered to witness their union – there were laughs and joyful tears as they watched these two amazing individuals get choked up exchanging their vows.

Congratulations again. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Can’t wait til you are back in the Bay Area for some fun get together!

A couple months ago we had the chance to help out Studio Nine from Philadelphia for a wedding at the amazing Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay Hotel. Rachna and Jordan got married in a traditional Indian ceremony that included an amazing baraat overlooking the beautiful ocean. A bit windy, but a gorgeous wedding.

It was the day everyone was waiting for. After twelve amazing years together, Yawen and Vince finally tied the knot at the very magical Nestldown.

In her beautiful Vera Wang gown, Yawen shed some joyful tears during their first look outside the little cottage in the fantasy garden. Vince could not take his eyes off her and the big grin never disappeared from his face.

We always feel so blessed to be part of our client’s big day. Today was even more special because we got to know Yawen and Vince so well, it felt like we’ve known each other for years.

Yawen & Vince – Thank you for being truly kind and treating us like an extension of your family. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

In an elegant Chinese wedding dress, Samantha giggled as she listened to what was happening downstairs. Outside of the house, Arthur and the groomsmen were going through rounds of challenges created by the bridesmaids to prove he is worthy to win Samantha’s heart. And indeed he is. With smiles, he came in and whisk away his beautiful bride.

After a series of tea ceremonies, the good looking couple exchanged their vows in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. The weather forecast actually predicted high chance of rain, but the day turned out to be perfect – just like them. With the help of their close friends and family, this day was filled with love and happiness. And we were lucky enough to be documenting their love story.

Congratulations Sam & Arthur!

In the beautiful St. Peter & Paul Church in San Francisco, family and friends came to witness the union of Marissa and Tim. It was a day full of love, laughter and tears.

Marissa is one of the nicest brides ever. Even on her wedding day, she put the feelings and needs of her family and friends before her own. We were in awe of her sweetness and felt extremely honored to be part of her and Tim’s big day. From the endless congrats and heartfelt toasts, it’s easy to see how much love is in this family.

Marissa and Tim – hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in the Big Apple. Thank you for having us there. You are such a special couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness.
