If you were like me, you grew up watching all the Disney classics...Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White...the list goes on! As a little girl, you probably dreamed of the day your "Prince Charming" would come and you'd have the rest of your lives to live happily ever after. I can imagine Lauren was this very girl who fantasized about her beautiful wedding day and dressing up just like those beloved princesses in the movies. Fast forward years later to the day that dream became a reality! She wore a gorgeous princess ball gown, iridescent heels that shined like glass slippers, and her mother's wedding pearls. Needless to say she looked radiant! The ceremony was held in Portola Valley at the beautiful Valley Presbyterian Church, with a giant window at the alter that looked out into all towering Redwood trees surrounding the sanctuary. After the ceremony we got some great shots with those Redwoods as our lovely backdrop and headed off to the reception at the Sheraton in Palo Alto. Each table had a different Disney themed centerpiece, each handmade by the bride herself! It all came together so nicely and was a wonderful beginning of a new chapter of Lauren and Alex's fairytale love story!

Who knew such a beautiful spot was tucked away in the middle of Fremont? I was pleasantly surprised to shoot Naomi and Nelson's wedding at the Palmdale Estates on a gorgeous day in July! There was no hiding their love and excitement for the day to have finally arrived. They were both full of smiles the entire day and it shows in their pictures for sure. Complete with a horse and carriage, a beautiful coral color palette and vibrant flower arrangements, no detail was left untouched at this fairytale wedding. Naomi's parents added a sentimental touch as well, singing the newly weds a favorite love song from her childhood. I was honored to capture their special moments and experience exploring a new venue; one of my favorite things to do! Best wishes to you both!
