These two were such a sweet couple and their family and friends were a lot of fun to shoot! The ceremony was held at St. Raymond Catholic Church in Menlo Park, which had some beautiful architecture. Angela's gown had gorgeous lace detail, and she rocked her Badgley Mischka shoes! As these two are such big fans of tennis, we took to the courts for some fun couple shots after the ceremony.

The golden hour light for their palo alto wedding was stunning, especially for the portraits at the Palo Alto University Club. Their lawn area has recently been transformed into a gorgeous, lush garden. It's perfect for afternoon light to filter through the trees. On our way back from the garden area we came over the iconic bridge the enters the back of the club. It's surrounded by foliage and the photos of Ben and Angela on that bridge are some of the favorite photos taken this year! Thanks again for having me join you at the wedding and I hope you enjoy these photos!

Nella Terra Cellars | Livermore Valley Wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2018/7/nella-terra-cellars-livermore-valley-wedding Jessica and Michael's Livermore Valley wedding at the Nella Terra Cellar was such a sweet and summery affair! They had lots of fun details that reflected their passion for teaching, including cookies displayed in the shape of the periodic table - each one custom-made by AP Sugar Company! The bridesmaids' gorgeous sunflower arrangements beautifully complemented their vibrant blue dresses, and the rolling golden hills of the Livermore Valley were the perfect backdrop for some gorgeous sun-kissed photos!

Landmarks Art and Garden Center | Tiburon Wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2018/7/landmarks-art-and-garden-center-tiburon-wedding Dustin and Kara’s intimate garden wedding at the Landmarks Art and Garden Center in Tiburon was truly a stunner! After the couple’s first look, we made our way across the street from the venue to a path at the water’s edge and had a beautiful view of the Bay. The fabulous Mandy Scott of Mandy Scott Events wore many hats that day: florist, coordinator, and even officiant! Later that day, we headed over to the restaurant Epic Steak in San Francisco for the reception and an amazing view of the Bay Bridge. Thanks so much for letting me be part of your big day, Dustin and Kara!

Trione Vineyards and Winery | Jen and Matt https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2017/8/trione-vineyards-and-winery-jen-and-matt Trione Vineyards and Winery, Geyserville Wedding, Evan Chung PhotographyTrione-Vineyards-and-Winery-Geyserville-Wedding-Evan-Chung-Photography_0001 Jen and Matt were married on April 29th with their ceremony and reception at the Trione Vineyards and Winery. This Trione Winery Wedding was a super stylish event, but more importantly, it was for the best couple ever! 

 

Matt, the groom, is a pilot for Jetblue airlines, so these two jet-set across the country on a regular basis. Matt is based out of Washington, Jen found her gown in New York and they found their venue while wine tasting in Sonoma! As a Bay Area wedding photographer, I love when I have the opportunity to come up here to Sonoma. 

 

For Jen and Matt’s wedding, the day began in a rented home near the vineyard itself. My second shooter and I shot together while the ladies were getting ready. This home was a wonderful place to get ready. Huge windows let the morning light stream in, creating the perfect backdrop for portraits. There were these really cool pieces of art hanging in the house and really nice furnishings. It was such a great way to start off the day before heading to the vineyard.

 

When we arrived at Trione Winery, we staged a first look for Matt and Jen in the vines. It was such a touching moment when he turned to see his bride. No matter how many first looks I see, it’s still such a special moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. 

 

After the first look we took some pictures with the whole bridal party. So…  funny story about these pictures. There was this beautiful, weathered bridge that was the epitome of rustic elegance. So, we lined everyone up on the bridge for portraits. As it turns out, half of the shots have the whole group looking down at the river below. This dog, who belonged to one of the winery employees, was down there in the river. He was frolicking, romping, splashing and making a total mess of himself. It was hilarious, but it also created some of the best, most genuine smiles from the whole group.  It was awesome. 

 

Trione Winery Wedding Details

 

Jen had worked closely with her amazing coordinators from Emelina Co to produce some of the most stylish floral arrangements and details. These two coordinators are literally my favorite people to work with in the industry. Not only are they are so much fun, but they do it ALL. The seating arrangement display, the metal card holder, the ring box, the decor, they are seriously super heroes. Not only are they a blast to work with, but they really did an amazing job with Jen and Matt’s wedding. 

 

The couple said their vows in the old brick cellar room, which was transformed with gorgeous floral decorations. Lush greenery hung gracefully from the ceiling, suspended overhead. They were stunning!! The ceremony was the perfect juxtaposition of old and new. Jen and Matt even had a new bottle of wine sealed so it could age and be ready for them to share on their ten year anniversary! 

 

After they said their “I do”s, I stole Matt and Jen away for some portraits. It was easy to capture their love, and the light that filtered through the windows was magical. I loved being able to document their love story. And really, when two people are as happy as this bride and groom, it makes my job easy.

 

During the reception, the coffee came out with a Miracle Fish for each guest. A Miracle Fish is a trinket that curls in the palm of your hand if you are warm. Depending on the way it curls, it can tell your fortune! This detail was really important to Matt and Jen because the fish were from their favorite restaurant in New York. The bride and groom had them shipped in from NY just to share it with their guests on their wedding day! I love when couples add personal details to their weddings.

 

The party got started and everyone was out on the dancefloor as the sun went down. Matt has a huge thing for cigars, so despite the chilly temperatures, Matt, Jen and their friends took some time to sneak out in the dark to enjoy cigars together. The way the smoke entwined its way around Matt and Jen was a really cool moment, almost like the smoke was embracing them!

 

Matt and Jen, thank you so much for asking me to be your wedding photographer. Thank you as well to the amazing team that went into this wedding, especially the coordinators of Trione and Emelina Co. It’s such a joy to be a part of an amazing wedding team, and this wedding was a blast.

 

Congratulations, again!

Corral De Tierra Country Club Wedding | Allison and John Get Hitched! https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2017/6/corral-de-tierra-country-club-wedding-allison-and-john-get-hitched Allison and John were married at the Corral De Tierra Country Club on June 3, 2017. As a Bay Area wedding photographer, I usually don't make it all the way down to the Monterey area but I'm so glad that I did! There were some beautiful views from the country club that overlooked the golf course and the Corral De Tierra valley area. 

Surrounded by incredible views, the couple said their vows beside the fairway of the eighteenth hole. It made for a spectacular scene and being outdoors for their nuptials made so much sense for this outdoorsy couple. 

This was a special couple for me since we had previously shot their engagement and bridal boudoir sessions together. By this point, we were good buddies and it was like attending an old friend's wedding. I love getting that many sessions with the couple and really being able to know what makes them tick! For these two, adventure in nature brings them together!

I love these two and I'm so lucky to have been part of their big day! Here are few photos from one of my favorites series after the ceremony. Hope you enjoy. Puccinelli-1055Puccinelli-1055 Puccinelli-1692Puccinelli-1692 Puccinelli-1714Puccinelli-1714 Puccinelli-1752Puccinelli-1752

Redwood Trees in the Afternoon Light | Santa Cruz Engagement Photo Shoot https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2017/4/redwood-trees-in-the-afternoon-light-santa-cruz-engagement-photo-shoot This one is long overdue and I just had to come back and post it for you! I loved everything about it: the super fun couple, amazing light, rowdy fur babies, rainy redwoods... it all just came together. For a Santa Cruz engagement session it had great weather. Usually Santa Cruz engagement photos are one or the other - overcast or sunny. This time we lucked out because we had lots of different kinds of weather which made for a super fun engagement shoot. 

As a Bay Area wedding photographer, I get used to shooting in different weather which can also produce some crazy great lighting scenarios if you're willing to brave the elements, but this one was a fun challenge even for a Bay Area native. I wish I had a behind-the-scenes photo to show off the helpful friend who was holding the umbrella over me while shooting by the river. The sprinkling rain was constant but not insurmountable. Those dogs though! So much energy! :) We had a few unique shots with the dogs hiking up dangerous cliffs and posing randomly on the edge of a steep wall of rock and dirt. So good!

Not only did we have fun in the rain, but it cleared up enough to see the warm sunset light and even go for a quick bike ride. John and Allison were troopers, no, they were instigators! They rocked it! They even did some ballroom dancing for me.

We had such a great time and I can't wait to shoot their wedding soon!

Legion of Honor and Crystal Springs Golf Course Wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/11/legion-of-honor-and-crystal-springs-golf-course-wedding I'm excited to share these images from this gorgeous Burlingame and SF wedding. We celebrated with tea ceremonies through the morning and then friends and family gathered for the wedding at Crystal Springs Golf Course. There's a beautiful gazebo at the far edge of the golf course that the club uses for weddings. It happens to look out over one of the best views on the SF Peninsula. 

We then spent some time at the Legion of Honor and the San Francisco Ferry Building. Check out these great shots from the time with the couple and the bridal party. I can't wait to share more of the photos. Enjoy!

Beautiful Kohl Manson Wedding in Burlingame, CA https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/10/beautiful-kohl-manson-wedding-in-burlingame-ca Beautiful Kohl Manson Wedding in Burlingame, CA

TianTian and Brett were married at the gorgeous Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, CA. From top to bottom I love everything about this wedding! Super fun couple, great guests, and a knock out wedding venue. The outdoor area is actually one of my favorites, because it has the grassy knoll where the couple can say their vows in the shade, right next to the patio with a beautiful fountain in the middle. The gardens are also pretty hard to beat. Then you go inside and the location is breathtaking! High vaulted ceilings, big black fireplaces, historic library, and perfectly detailed ballrooms - who wouldn't want to get married here?

Kohl Mansion Wedding Details

This Kohl Mansion wedding was a stunner and the only thing that outshone the venue and details was the bride. TianTian's dress was incredible to behold. Brett's a lucky man and he knows it! The intricacies of the her details, including the dress, shoes, jewelry, table setting, guest book, welcome table, etc, really made the day come together in a way that I thought only happened in the movies. Check out these photos from their beautiful Burlingame wedding.

Bay Area Wedding at the Pulgas Water Temple, Redwood City | Lior and Amy https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/10/bay-area-wedding-at-the-pulgas-water-temple-redwood-city-lior-and-amy Pulgas Water Temple Wedding

Amy and Lior had an incredible wedding day with perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony. This Redwood City wedding only had about 20 guests which is perfect for intimate conversations and getting to know everyone you're photographing. Small intimate weddings are some of my favorite weddings to shoot because the size of the event opens up so many more Bay Area wedding venues that may never have been an option with larger weddings. This meant that Amy and Lior could have their wedding at the Pulgas Water Temple in Redwood City, one of the most gorgeous locations on the San Francisco peninsula. Here are some of the photos from their lovely wedding day. Enjoy!

Berkeley University Club - Wedding at the Berkeley Memorial Stadium https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/8/berkeley-university-club---wedding-at-the-berkeley-memorial-stadium From the top California Memorial Stadium at UC Berkeley you feel like you are on top of the world. Well, at least on top of the San Francisco Bay Area. Kristina and Dan held their beautiful wedding at the Berkeley University Club above the press box of the stadium. The ceremony itself was held on on the ground floor in Goldman Plaza and it was a huge space that had a grand feel to it. The nearby trees where we did the couple's first look also gave it a natural feel. However nothing really compares to the amazing view from the Glass Deck at the top of the stadium. With live music from an amazing ukulele player and an amazing group of guests, the evening took on a fun and electric atmosphere. Thanks for having me join you for your wedding!

De Lorimier Winery is particularly lovely for smaller parties. I just so happen to love photographing intimate groups in beautiful places - who doesn't? Chris and Jenn's Geyserville wedding had the beautiful views of Alexander Valley. It's an incredible place to soak in warm sunset and it was the perfect place to get married, especially if you're coming from Louisiana like Chris and Jenn. Their California destination wedding was absolutely gorgeous and filled with hilarious characters, I mean guests. Take a look at these photos from their wedding and I hope you enjoy!

Berkeley City Club and UC Botanical Gardens Wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/7/berkeley-city-club-and-uc-botanical-gardens-wedding Kera and Nat's Berkeley City Club wedding was spectacular! The girls got ready at the Berkeley City Club while the guys prepped at the Durant Hotel. Both locations had beautiful detailing and architecture making for some lovely photo opportunities. The hotels were a stark contrast to the couple's ceremony location, the redwood grove of the UC Botanical Gardens. In the redwood grove, there's dense tree coverage surrounding a gorgeous open amphitheater. The ceremony was beautiful and we stopped by the large outdoor whale at the Lawrence Hall of Science to overlook the city of Berkeley. It was a true Bay Area wedding with an incredible view to prove it. 

The reception at the Berkeley City Club was certainly the highlight of the evening. Good food, friends and family surrounded by all the ambience of one of the best Bay Area wedding venues. Thanks for having me join you on your big day and enjoy these preview photos!

Summer Wedding at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton, CA https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/7/summer-wedding-at-the-palm-event-center-in-pleasanton-ca Palm Event Center Wedding

Pleasanton weddings are almost always an amazing affair to behold. This gorgeous wedding day at the Palm Event Center was no exception. This lovely venue has a beautiful drive leading up to the main building, but the real magic happens in the banquet hall next to the vineyards.

Cady and Jade's ceremony took place inside the barrel room and it was exquisite. The backdrop of barrels, the parade of chandeliers down the aisle, and the low candle light made for one of the prettiest ceremonies I've ever been fortunate enough to photograph. Everything was perfect from the lawn games, to the toasts, the wild family portraits and even the groom's surprise serenade to his new bride. All of it combined made for a decadent and fun celebration that will go down in history as one of the best!

I can't wait for another Palm Event Center wedding and for another opportunity to work with Cady and Jade as they grow their family! Thanks to the wonderful couple for having me join you on your big day! Enjoy these preview shots and I can't wait to share more!

Hans Fahden Vineyards | Sonoma Wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/7/hans-fahden-winery-sonoma-wedding Calistoga weddings and Healdsburg weddings are some of my favorites to photograph. In fact, Sonoma weddings in general rank as some of the best, in my humble opinion. A Sonoma winery wedding inevitably has an air of casual elegance. It's a lovely mix between breathtaking beauty, sophisticated culture, and California's relaxed persona and style. I love it! I feel completely in my element there and especially when photographing with two wildly fun people like Matt and Wendy.

The laughter began during the getting ready moments and didn't stop until their vintage getaway car roared away down the long Hans Fahden drive. Besides the amazing couple and the awesome wedding party, the best part of the day had to be the barrel room which was actually a long underground corridor. In fact, for all intents and purposes, it was a T-shaped cave that went deep into the hillside. What an amazing place to have a dinner reception with all the people you love and adore. I can't thank the couple enough for being so great and for having me join them on their ridiculously fun wedding day. 

I hope you enjoy a couple of my favorites from the day and can't wait to share more!

Henry and Kristen's oceanside wedding was absolutely gorgeous. From the moment we starting shooting at the Intercontinental Clement Monterey, we had no shortage of beauty to photograph. Her lovely makeup, Vera Wang dress and Cartier jewelry were a pretty good start, but the breathtaking view of the Hyatt Carmel Highlands Inn overlooking the ocean during the ceremony was incredible and left me speechless (which is hard to do)! What a great day and with so many fun people to share it with, it made for a perfect wedding day!

Kami and Mike's Palo Alto wedding took place in some of the prettiest Bay Area wedding venues on the San Francisco peninsula. The ladies got ready at the Garden Court Hotel, where the reception would later take place. Then we made our way over to the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens for the couple's first look. I can't think a more gorgeous location to take garden portraits. The wedding ceremony was at stunning St. Thomas Aquinas church, then back to the Garden Court Hotel to party with friends and family.

Mike and Kami were a perfect couple to photograph with and I can't wait to share the rest of their photos. In the meantime, enjoy these teaser shots!

Piedmont Community Church Wedding | Ariella and Daniel's summertime wedding https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/5/piedmont-community-church-wedding-ariella-and-daniels-summertime-wedding Last week's wedding at the Piedmont Community Church was one of the most fun weddings I've shot in a long while! There is something about an amazing wedding party that can really define the wedding day experience. As an East Bay wedding photographer, I get to see lots of different wedding parties and this group was definitely one of my favorites! When friendship is so deeply entrenched in love and loyalty, it's hard not see the fruits of that come through in the photos. The same goes for the bride and groom. Daniel and Ariella were a hoot to photograph and their love for one another was apparent by their infectious laughter. Here are a few favorites from the day and I can't wait to share the rest!

Portola Valley Estate Wedding | Aaron and Marcia's Backyard Wedding Teaser https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/5/portola-valley-estate-wedding-aaron-and-marcias-backyard-wedding-teaser As a San Francisco wedding photographer, sometimes a backyard wedding can mean tight spaces with limited photo opportunities. This is why coming down to Portola Valley for this casually elegant backyard wedding was a true delight. Aaron and Marcia held their wedding at the home of one of Marcia's family friends. The home was the perfect setting for the bride and groom's relaxed atmosphere. The nuptials were in the front garden while the reception was held in the backyard. Lush gardens covered the entire property and they were perfect for couple portraits later in the day. 

The evening was such a blast! Cocktail hour glided easily into a gourmet dinner while drinks and dancing punctuated the night. Bay Area wedding photographers like me love shooting with such amazing clients in such gorgeous locations. Thank you for making me a part of your incredible wedding day and I can't wait to share the rest of the images. Enjoy these sneak peak photos!

Monterey Wedding at Lover's Point and Cannery Row | Annie and Diana https://www.evanchungphoto.com/blog/2016/4/monterey-wedding-at-lovers-point-and-cannery-row-annie-and-diana This Monterey wedding was an absolute joy to photograph! The best part was spending time with fantastic people and the constant laughter that filled the day. The location didn't hurt either. Annie and Diana's wedding at Lover's Point Park in Monterey, CA was a breathtaking view and an incredible sweetness to it. They emphasized the meaning of the occasion rather than the formalities of a typical wedding day. It was a honor to see these two beautiful woman embrace their lives together as one along with all the happiness and challenges that will come with it. 

The wedding day started by capturing their preparations in a gorgeous house in Pacific Grove. The place was perfect for getting ready separately on different floors so as not to see each other before the ceremony. Soon we made our way over to Berwick Park for wedding portraits. The long grasses by the cliffs were amazing to photograph in and the views were spectacular. The actual ceremony took place at Lover's Point Park by the beach with the crashing waves giving everything a storybook feel. After snapping some shots with the couple on the beach at Lover's Point, we met up with the wedding party for the reception at Wave Street Studios on Cannery Row.

What a treat to be a part of such a fun day! Congratulations to Annie and Diana. Enjoy these teaser photos and I can't wait to share the rest with you.
