It was a warm fall day in sunny California when Marlen pledged her forever to her long time friend Ross. Both people of faith, Marlen and Ross had a traditional Christian ceremony in their home church Cathedral of Faith. It has been a long time since I have shot a church wedding, and I have to say Marlen and Ross’s church wedding was simply beautiful and spirit filled. From the communion to the kneeling benches I know these two will be starting off their marriage with God as the center. The reception followed at a beautiful private estate in San Jose.
Marlen kept some beautiful latin traditions for her day with vibrant florals and a mariachi band for guest to sing traditional latin songs. Her dress was a beautiful lace with a gorgeous cathedral veil. Both bride and groom looked absolutely stunning as we went around the garden estate for their portraits. They both could not stop smiling and sharing romantic moments, which made my job easy. Marlen and Ross’s reception was something out of a fairy tail as guest enjoyed toast and drinks on the grounds of the lavish estate, and it wasn’t long before the DJ turned things up a notch and the bride and groom danced the night away with their closest family and friends. No wedding would come together without teamwork, check out these awesome vendors from Marlen and Ross’s magical day.
