Teresa and Gary’s Wedding

On Sunday of this Memorial Day weekend Teresa and Gary were married at Hotel Valencia on Santana Row!

We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for some time now, but it was when we saw some of their awesome wedding details (including green shoes) that I realized the day is going to be even more fun. Much to our delight, Teresa and Gary chose to see each other before the ceremony: this is something we always recommend for making the day go soo much smoother. We spent some time inside the hotel, taking photos in the courtyard, the Vbar, lobby, and in the hallways. I think we could have stayed there for a few more hours as the hotel is just gorgeous and soo modern and the bride and groom were the perfect models!

Shooting outside on Santa Row was a bit more of a challenge as it was pretty crowded on this long holiday weekend. We still managed to find some quiet alleys, beautiful walls, and remote benches for the photos.

Here are just some of our favorites from this awesome day:
