Always a pleasure to see our work in print! Check out Lauren and Juan’s beautiful wedding at Hotel Valencia in Santana Row in Ceremony Magazine.

Here is our original blog entry for the wedding.

Lauren and Juan traveled all the way from Boston to get married in the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph and chic Hotel Valencia in San Jose. Santana Row is where they met and fell in love, so it is only fitting that they have the wedding here. Their family and friends also traveled from all over the U.S. to celebrate their union. It’s an impressive turnout for a destination wedding, yet in a way we were not surprised because Lauren and Juan are both so genuine loving and caring!

There was happiness in the air throughout the day. The love and emotions we felt throughout the day was just amazing! And their energetic wedding party owned the dance floor and kept the party going. It was a great celebration indeed.

Lauren & Juan – Thank you for allowing us to document your wedding day. We feel so honored to be there and witness all the happy moments. You are such a special couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

We have a thing for numbers. So we were especially excited about our 9/10/11 couple. Plus Cynthia and Steve are just so much fun. We laughed so much during their engagement session and Steve had forewarned us his boys are even funnier. We knew their wedding day would be a blast. The day was filled was nonstop laughing indeed.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate their love. Cynthia and Steve are so different yet they complement each other so well like a perfectly proportioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Cynthia is very organized. Steve is spontaneous. Cynthia can eat peanut butter with every meal. Steve is adventurous with food. Cynthia rides her bike to work. Steve loves to drive.. a lot. Yet they do share many similarities – great passion for shoes and dance, love for their family and friends, and of course, unconditional love for each other. They are two lovebirds perfect for each other.

A lot of thought and planning went into this wedding. Steve’s last name starts with the letter H, so Hermes fit perfectly well with their orange lovebird wedding theme. From the menu design to the beautiful centerpieces, everyone was continuously wowed by their personal touches. Did we mention Cindy is super organized? :)

Cindy & Steve – thank you for being absolutely amazing. We wish you much love, joy and happiness. Have a great time in Europe!

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

Vivian and Abel tied the knot at the contemporary and chic Hotel Valencia. They are such a cute couple and surrounded by so much love & support from family and friends. The officiant is a good friend of theirs, and the Matron of Honor has been close friends with Vivian since they were babies. Isn’t that just very sweet?
