Tiffany & Victor’s San Francisco City Hall Wedding Ceremony & Portraits

|
May 26, 2018

Meet Tiffany & Victor, probably the most successful yet down-to-earth and awesome couple I know. Fifteen years ago, Tiffany and I first met in high school at math team (or was it Science Olympiad?). Since then, she’s gone into a 💪 career, met Victor who I hear makes the best beef noodles, and, just last week, had a San Francisco City Hall wedding ceremony to officially tie the knot.

Lisa & Vince | Silverado Resort and Spa Napa Wedding

|
May 25, 2018

Lisa and Vince’s story began with three of their friends deciding to set the two up on a date. As recounted on their wedding website:

Erik sent Vince a picture of Lisa and asked if he would want to go on a date with her and Vince nervously agreed because she was so pretty. Lisa also agreed to a date, without seeing a picture of Vince.

I’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure out who wrote this part 😛

Fast forward a couple of years to Vince proposing while on a trip to Paris, Lisa saying yes, and then here we are at their beautiful wedding at the Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa! After arriving at the venue, L&V had their first look and exchanged personal vows (which I thought was a really fantastic idea!) on a cute bridge in the back of the venue.

Their ceremony was outdoor on the lawn, and reception inside the mansion’s ballroom. Everything was fabulously decorated, from the beautiful garland with flowers and linens at the ceremony, to the floral chandelier hanging in the reception hall, to the elegant trio of cakes. Everything was a dream, and it was loads of fun for everyone — the bride & groom, their guests, and the photographers too!

Congrats to Lisa & Vince!

Yan & Min’s Surprise Proposal at the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton

|
May 24, 2018

5/20 is a special day for many Chinese couples (it sounds like “I love you” in Mandarin), and Yan made sure to lock down that date with us several months in advance to capture this special moment between him and his girlfriend Min. He put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect spot, especially since the weather wasn’t looking the best that weekend.

When the time came, he and two of his friends concocted a story to get Min out to the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton for the surprise proposal, and they choreographed it perfectly. He led her to an overlook above the beach and coastline, and at just the right moment, his friends started playing music from a speaker that had been concealed in an inconspicuous shopping bag. We loved Min’s overjoyed reaction, and all the happy moments following the proposal.

Our favorite part? They went out to celebrate at a hot pot restaurant. My kind of people!
