We photographed a wedding blessing (they were already married) at Stanford Memorial Church with a Stanford Faculty Club wedding reception for Holly and Todd. I think we were all worried that the heat we had during the week would carry on to the weekend, but no, they couldn’t have ordered better weather.
It seemed that Holly and Todd did their best to keep things simple and fun. All photography was on Stanford Campus. Stanford Memorial Church and Stanford Faculty Club are walking distance from each other, and I think many of the guests parked by Faculty Club and walked to the church. Flowers were kept to the essentials i.e. bouquets, groom’s boutonniere and reception flowers. The fun? Well, that was their friends and families!
We photographed Todd, his family and his attendants first. They were a great group and easy to work with. We had enough time to photograph all the photos they wanted. After the guys were hidden we photographed Holly, her family and attendants. They were just as fun to work with. Holly looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown.
After the ceremony and the formal family photos, we did some photography around campus of just Holly and Todd. They had a few “must have” photos for example in front of the church and with Hoover Tower in the background. The while walking to the Faculty Club we stopped a few times for some romantic photos. They were excited to get the reception and spend time with all their family and friends.
At the reception everyone was ready for the party to start. Holly and Todd had rented a photo booth for guests to take pictures and make a guestbook from the photos. It looked like guests were having a good time with it.
In keeping with keeping things simple, there were not many formalities. They had some great toasts from Holly’s sister, Todd brother and Holly’s parents. Holly and Todd said “Thank You”. Then after mingling a bit the party took off. They were a energetic crowd. DJ Matthew Cope played some great dance music that got everyone on their feet. By request he even played YMCA and The Chicken Dance, which got almost every guest dancing. They were a wild and crazy group, lots of fun!
