Melanie & Adam’s Winery Harvest Reception

Melanie&Adam.7Melanie and Adam seriously give us wedding goals!  After a stunning Hawaiian wedding on the beaches of Maui, the couple returned back to the mainland for a harvest winery reception at Kirigin Cellars.  That way, friends and family could enjoy the celebration even if they weren’t able to make it out to the islands.  This couple is all about including those close to them, and it makes everyone feel like family!  They even made sure that their little dog was part of the celebration!

We absolutely loved their fun harvest theme.  It was done so beautifully and was perfect for an October wedding.  To add to the family feel, the couple even brought in a mariachi band and even a piñata!  The bride and groom even got their turn with the bat!

Allison & Thomas’ Vogue Downtown Wedding

Allison&thomas.2

Allison and Thomas’ wedding looked like it was straight out of a bridal magazine!  The beautiful and sweet couple exchanged vows at The Westin in Downtown San Jose.  The gorgeous hotel was the perfect setting.  Their fairytale ceremony site, those beautiful windows, and even a hidden staircase make for great backdrops.

allison&thomas.1JAH_0836Allison&thomas.3

Allison wore an absolutely stunning blush gown from Trudy’s Brides, complete with Jimmy Choo.  Inside her shoe was a sixpence, a sweet gift from a family member who had passed away.  We always love seeing personal touches added to weddings, and this was the perfect example of how to keep a loved one close.  They even had a remembrance table at the ceremony.

One of our favorite moments of the day came during the ceremony.  When the officiant asked if Thomas promised to honor and protect Allison, he turned to the crowd and exclaimed, “Oh yeah!!”  Everyone laughed, including his stunning bride.  We loved it!

Jen & Paul’s Art Museum Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyWhen we first met Jen and Paul, we talked about how they wanted to do something unique and artistic.  We started by planning a special engagement shoot up at Lick Observatory, including nighttime shots!  It was great to do something so different and special to the couple, and we couldn’t wait until their big day at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, CA.  The great exhibits made for colorful and fun backdrops, and Jen and Paul did a wonderful job of making their wedding unique to them.  It was quite different than most weddings out there – which we love!  We also made sure to bring in more nighttime photography.  The couple loves astronomy.  As a matter of fact, Jen’s ring even has meteorite in the band!

In addition to the great venue, they made sure to incorporate beautiful details.  Their flowers were not only utilized in the bouquets and boutonnières, but each table had its own unique display with miniature pieces of art for the table numbers.  The bride blew us all out of the water with her absolutely stunning blue necklace.  Talk about serious necklace envy!

Jen & Paul were such a joy to watch.  They are a perfect match, and there is so much love and partnership between them.  They would do anything for each other – even attend sporting events (Paul isn’t a big fan of sports).  They are beautiful inside and out, and it was a pleasure to capture their beautiful day!

Fatima & Robert’s Wine Themed Labor Day Weekend Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Photography

This Labor Day weekend was unique not just for the record-breaking heat (it reached 114 degrees in Gilroy), but also for the beautiful wedding of Fatima and Robert!  They began the day with a beautiful ceremony and mass at St. Catherine of Alexandria in Morgan Hill, and then the bridal party and their guests continued the celebration at Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy.  We always love working at that venue since they really kept photography in mind when designing the building and grounds.  There are just so many great backdrops!

We absolutely loved Fatima and Robert’s wine-meets-rustic-glam decor.  They perfectly used deep reds, warm browns, and pops of glittery gold throughout the tablescapes and decorations.  It went great with the wine theme.  The cake even had wine glasses as the topper with little marzipan grapes decorating each tier!  To continue with the theme, guests signed corks and even wrote little messages on them to be stored in a custom shadow box for the couple to hang in their home.  Fatima and Robert also brought in the comforts of summer to their big day by having lawn games outside, cold alcoholic treats inside, and even free flip flops for the guests to use!  We also set up our ShootAnyAngle Photo Booth for them as well, and the guests had a great time.

Fatima and Robert were absolutely on cloud nine and nothing could put a damper on their perfect day – not even the heat!  It’s such a treat for us when a couple can make each other laugh and smile with just a glance.  These two definitely could!  We just sat back and snapped away as they exchanged cute moments as if they were the only ones in the world.  As photographers, we love when that happens!

Jessica & Aidan’s Sweet, Casual Garden Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Photography

One of the great things about shooting at the same venue is seeing how each couple can make it their own.  Jessica & Aidan made the grounds of the Rengstorff House in Mountain View feel like their own backyard!  They had lawn games for the kids, a delicious buffet, an ice cream cart, and lots of great music for their guests to enjoy.  It was all around relaxing and just plain happy!  Of course, everyone could feel the love between these two.  They really are each other’s best friends.

The ceremony was very sweet, and the officiant was a friend of the couple who was expecting – and her due date was the day of the wedding!  Luckily, the little one chose to wait a little while longer before greeting the world – though that would have made for a great story!  Jessica and Aidan also brought in a little nightstand for decoration (and to hold the rings and bouquet), which looked beautiful.  It’s definitely an idea we’d love to steal!  For music, the groom’s brother played the bagpipe!

Stephanie & Jason’s Downtown San Jose Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

We were immediately excited when we learned about the locations for Stephanie and Jason’s big day: the beautiful Hotel De Anza for getting ready photos, followed by a traditional ceremony at the breathtaking Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, and finishing with a reception at the San Jose Police Officer’s Association.  It was the perfect blend of urban and traditional looks.  Plus, when you have such a great couple like Stephanie and Jason, you’re bound to get amazing shots!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Hotel De Anza brings their guests back to the class of the 40s, so it was a great backdrop for Stephanie & Jason and their bridal party.  Located in Downtown San Jose, we were able to utilize the the city and even the roof of the building to bring in a classy urban feel.  The sweet details of the sunflowers in the bouquet and the stunning cathedral length veil really captured the couple’s traditional and yet fun side.

The majestic cathedral was absolutely breathtaking, and we were so honored to be able to photograph there!  Add in the gorgeous bride and groom with her beautiful Trudy’s gown, and we were definitely having all the feels!  Of course, the best part was simply seeing Stephanie and Jason together.  These two are clearly crazy for each other, and it shows!  We were so delighted to be a part of their beautiful day.

Jessica & David’s Romantic Nature Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Jessica and David’s beautiful day was at the historic Rengstorff House in Mountain View, California.  They chose a romantic nature feel for their wedding, and it was perfect.  We loved it all – from the floral crown to the lego tie clips to the moss and wooded centerpieces.  There were so many beautiful little details that we were just head over heels for!  Plus, it made the wedding so much more personal to the couple.  Jessica even had a handmade gown designed and made by one of her bridesmaids, Janelle Yee.  We absolutely adored it!  Not only did Janelle make the wedding dress, but she made her own dark green, stripped bridesmaid dress!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Instead of choosing just one color for the bridesmaids, Jessica chose two – mint and dark green.  The combination was simply beautiful for photographs, and they blended great with the guys’ floral ties and grey suits.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The centerpieces brought in a fantastical woodland element complete with little butterflies and birds as chandeliers and bistro lights hung from wires above.  To add in an even more personal touch, the bride and groom used a family heirloom cake topper on their own cake!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The best part of the wedding was the bride and groom themselves.  Jessica and David are so fun to be around, and every moment with them is a blast.  They and the father of the bride even requested that they get a photo with us!  It was so sweet. They are the perfect match, and it’s such a treat to watch the two of them together.  There is never a shortage of love or laughter, and everyone can feel it.  We love these two!

Lichy & Ken’s Wedding in the Golden Hills of California

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Lichy and Ken chose the stunning venue of The Ranch at Little Hills in San Ramon, CA for their gorgeous June wedding.  The venue provided so many fun backdrops, including a beautiful forest for their ceremony!  It was the perfect fit for the couple who love the outdoors.  They love it so much that they even got engaged on a 30 mile backpacking trip!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Their beautiful forest ceremony was straight out of a fairytale.  Bridesmaids shone in mint, and groomsmen were dapper in their navy suits.  Instead of an arch or statement piece at the front of the altar, the couple chose to let nature be their decoration – and we loved it!  They also put a piece of pallet art at the entrance to the ceremony space, which was the perfect minimalistic touch.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

When we learned that one of their favorite activities is rock climbing (and noticed there was a rock climbing wall at the venue), we mentioned posing with the wall to “stage” a climb.  We should have known these two would want to actually ROCK CLIMB IN THEIR WEDDING CLOTHES!  We were blown away when Lichy kicked off her shoes, and started climbing!  Needless to say, that was a first!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Lichy and Ken made sure to make their guests feel at home with a great reception.  Guests danced under the stars and bistro lighting and enjoyed Gelati Creation popsicles.  The minimalist decor was perfect and well-suited to their laid back style and personalities.  The wood slices, succulents, baby’s breath, and tea lights looked great with the natural backdrop of the venue.  We loved everything about it!

Jessica & Daniel’s Mad-Hatter Tea Party Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyIt was such a treat to photograph Jessica and Daniel’s Mad-Hatter tea party themed wedding in Napa Valley. Not only was the couple completely and madly in love, but their big day also had amazing and unique details that were simply gorgeous. The couple loves all things Disney, so their violinist played Disney songs during the ceremony including “I See the Light” from Tangled, “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Love is an Open Door” from Frozen. They also had some hidden Mickeys in their decorum, so we created some more through photography (in their ring shots and in shots of the desserts). The couple even planned their wedding to correspond with Dapper Day in Disneyland. Their Friday wedding allowed them enough time to drive down for the fun themed Disney day.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The amazing wedding planner, Christina of Emelina, created these gorgeous tea cup floral centerpieces (with the help of Mack Floral Design) with books and antique knickknacks. They also created a giant keyhole through which the guests and bridal party would enter through to transport them to the magical world that they had created for the ceremony. The venue was a great backdrop, and the couple chose it because it reminded them of Alice in Wonderland the moment they laid eyes on it.

Jessica and Daniel really broke the mold with their wedding, and we love that! Even the bride’s wedding dress was a unique step away from the traditional white gowns. It perfectly fit with the whole feel of the wedding. We’re a big believer in the fact that weddings should reflect the couple and be specific to them, and this couple did just that!

Dahyana & Ben’s Stunning Winery Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyWe love photographing weddings like Dahyana & Ben’s. With such a picture perfect backdrop and such an in-love couple, there was so much to work with and capture. The day started with a truly gorgeous outdoor ceremony with the vineyards and mountains in the background. The guests were provided with white parasols, which was definitely a treat on such a warm day.

After the ceremony, guests moved into the beautiful Kirigin Cellars Club House for a appetizers and some mingling while photos were being done outside. Of course, the kids also had fun enjoying the huge lawn area of the venue too!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Once the bride and groom returned, guests were treated to a delicious meal, dancing, and a surprise. The wedding day was also the groom, Ben’s, 30th birthday. To surprise him, his family and new bride brought out a birthday cake after dinner to celebrate.

Night fell upon the venue, and while everyone was dancing inside, we took the couple outside for some night photography with a very special guest – the Milky Way!
