Melanie and Kwame’s Wedding

A few weeks ago we photographed a very small wedding at the Stanford Memorial Church. Well this wedding was the opposite. It has been a while since we have had a couple that wanted us to document their entire day. I must say it was fun!

Getting Ready Photography at the Garden Court Hotel

Getting ready photography started at the Garden Court Hotel in downtown Palo Alto. Many times only the bride’s getting ready shots are covered. (By the way, it’s usually the groom who looks at us during the pre-wedding consultation and says, “I don’t need that.”) Kwame and the guys were first with the photography. During the time in the hotel room a gift from Melanie arrived. It was a touching surprise for Kwame. When we arrived to Melanie’s room we started with photography her wedding dress, shoes, and other accessories. It was also fun photographing Melanie with the bridesmaids having hair and make-up done. Melanie too was touched by the gift that arrived from Kwame.

Portraits at Stanford

After the photography at the Garden Court Hotel, we met with Kwame and his groomsmen at Stanford for some portraits and fun group shots pre-wedding. We knew they were a fun group from the hotel photos so we had a lot of fun with the guys during the pre-wedding photography. We photographed Melanie and her entourage on campus after the wedding. Wedding Ceremony & Family Photos They had a beautiful wedding ceremony exchanging their vows in front of friends and family. There were lots of family photos that followed in the church. As all the family and friends went off to the reception we stay for a few romantic photos of just Melanie and Kwame.

Women’s Club of Palo Alto Wedding Reception

We ended the day with Melanie and Kwame’s reception at the Women’s Club of Palo Alto. Colleen Bataille of Inspired Events by CB not only beautifully managed the wedding reception but also the entire day. Thank you Colleen! Besides all the traditional formalities of a wedding reception they ended the evening with a “Sparkler Send-Off”. It was a lot of fun! Hope you enjoy the photos.

In 2014 we had the pleasure to photograph other weddings at Stanford Memorial Church, view Holly & Todd’s Wedding and Kristin and Tom’s wedding.
