Valley Presbyterian Church Wedding Photography
Valley Presbyterian Church Wedding Photography with a wedding reception at the University Club in Palo Alto for Melissa and Josh. Two beautiful venues chosen by a great couple. This is how we documented their memories.
Pre wedding at Cornelis Bol Park in Palo Alto
Pre wedding photography started with getting ready shots of the bride. These photos included taking pictures of the bride’s gown and the dresses of the bridesmaid as well as the bride’s accessories like her necklace, shoes, bouquet… The pre wedding photos continued at a park close to where the bride was getting ready, Cornelis Bol Park in Palo Alto. Besides the portraits of the bride, her bridesmaids, maid and matron of honor we also took the first look. For this wedding we had two first look, the first was the first time her father saw her in her wedding dress (it was truly a special shot) and the second when the groom first laid eyes on his bride. Photos of both families, the groom and his attendants were also taken at Cornelis Bol Park in Palo Alto.
Wedding Ceremony at the Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley
The Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley is always a beautiful church for a wedding ceremony. The giant windows behind the alter look out on majestic redwoods. Though photographically a challenge, it is so beautiful. All the formal family photos we taken here too.
Wedding Reception at The University Club in Palo Alto
During the pre wedding day consultation with the couple where we plan out the wedding photography schedule with the couple, they decided they wanted to take a few shots on the beautiful grounds of the University Club. They decided on the signature bridge, a wonderful place for photography. The reception that followed was full of great speeches, special dances and fun!
We hope you enjoy these special photos.
