Ariel and Dennis: August 6, 2011

January 24th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

The first time I met Ariel and Dennis, we had an instant connection.  They’re the sweetest, most easygoing couple and not to mention we share a mutual love for cats (see their engagement shoot). The couple envisioned an intimate and simple wedding with their close family and friends. Since most of their family was coming from abroad, they thought what better way to thank them for coming than to treat them to the Californian coast. The Half Moon Bay Golf Links served as the perfect location and we chose soft palettes of blue and white to complement the beautiful scenery. The ceremony took place in the morning and guests enjoyed a reception lunch leaving the couple time to play in the ocean that afternoon. It was the perfect way to start their new lives together! Congratulations to my fellow feline lovers!

Adam and Wendy (A&W): May 29, 2011

Adam and Wendy wanted a warm and fun wedding that reflected their unique personalities. They chose to have their festivities at the Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, which was the perfect setting for their intimate gathering. Guests were encouraged to explore the grounds with surprises in every corner. Adam who is a bridge fanatic included a game room for his fellow players. While Wendy who loves root beer floats and desserts chose the A&W logo as their wedding motif and included a dessert room that featured these floats. But it was the unplanned moments like their windy ceremony background and surprise speeches that made the day even more memorable. Photographer Ryan C. Jones captured the joy and beauty of that day perfectly! Congratulations my sweet A&W!


Alice and Hans: May 1, 2011

I’ve been so excited to share Alice and Hans’ wedding from earlier this year. This couple wanted a chic, modern wedding and chose the Bentley Reserve in the heart of the financial district as their perfect setting. The banking hall with its dramatic chandeliers was ideal for their ceremony and later transformed into their lavish reception space. Every detail from the invitations to the fabric-like cake reflected their elegant and sophisticated style. And Alice the bride was beyond stunning in her wedding gown and later in traditional Chi Pao gown. The city cheers “congratulations” to you both!
