When booking her wedding, Stacey called me over the phone to talk details. She told me she was having a very small wedding with only close relatives and a few close friends in Mill Valley. She also told me they would be playing Rock Band. If any one could pull off video games at a wedding it was them. =)
The drive to Mandy and Brooks location at the Ranch House in Joseph D. Grant Park, San Jose, was one of the most challenging drives I have encountered as a wedding photographer. Worth every second of it I must add. Mandy is the owner of The Test of time weddings specializing in designing the perfect weddings for couples. She designed her own wedding and it was absolutely fabulous! When I arrived I about had a heart attack seeing all the gorgeous details I was about to be able to photograph. I LOVE details, especially vintage details. I also love Mandy and Brook! They are a fun couple who had the most heartfelt wedding possible. Adam and I were extremely lucky and happy to capture it.
Brook made all of the paper boutonnières by hand.
As soon as Mandy and Brook saw each other they went from crying to laughing and all over again. The ceremony was full of beautiful emotions that made my heart melt
Ok, so I have this thing for chandeliers. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. I seriously want one in every room of my house. One day…One day…
When I saw the old crate filled with peaches I about died. It was super cute.
I think these two photos are my favorites.
