Stanford Memorial Church Wedding
“I promise not to spill any food on your beautiful dress.” This was how Seth began his vows to Lilian during the ceremony!
What a lovely day for Lilian & Seth and their Stanford Memorial Church wedding. It was a perfect day!
During our final consultation with them Lilian & Seth decided that it would be best if we started photography with the ceremony but they wanted some of the commotion of the pre-wedding. We started in the round room with Seth, his family and the groomsmen. We took some shots of everyone and the excitement of the day. After, we joined Lilian, her family and the bridesmaids for a few photos in the bride’s room.
The ceremony was beautiful! Stanford Memorial Church is always so stunning and picturesque. After the family photos in the church we started solo portraits and all the other photos that we usually take during pre-wedding photography sessions.
Lilian had bought parasols for the bridesmaids, which made for great props for the photos. We had a lot of fun using them for both the girls and the guys.
We ended our time at Stanford with photos of just Lilian & Seth. Everyone else was at the Sheraton in Palo Alto relaxing before the reception.
Wedding Reception at the Sheraton in Palo Alto
As family is important for both Lilian & Seth, when we arrived at the Sheraton we set up for group family photos. We didn’t have enough time in the church all the family photos that were special for them so we decided to take the time we had before the cocktail hour to capture these meaningful photos.
Lilian is very creative and enjoys crafts. She created many special elements as décor for the reception. We made sure to photograph all the elements that made up the atmosphere of the reception.
After the toasts Lilian changed into her red Chinese dress and we had on final photo session by the koi pond at the Sheraton.
