Jennifer and Alex’s Kohl Mansion wedding was a day filled with love, joy, and celebration. Our preparations photos were taken at the Westin in Millbrae with a ceremony at the Holy Name Church is San Francisco and a Chinese/Vietnamese tea ceremony at the Kohl Mansion. It’s always exciting to be a participant in such an elaborate event and we loved watching Jenny and Alex really enjoy their grand celebration.
In any wedding this size it becomes important to understand who the family members are and to provide extremely thorough coverage. Sometimes it feels like you’re in the middle of a raging twister that is all around you as you capture one significant moment after another. We love the intensity as well as the responsibility of preserving the fleeting memories the couple will enjoy for years after their big day has passed. It feels like we gain inspiration from events such as this one.
The highlight location of the day was undoubtedly the Kohl Mansion. This venue has a particular charisma about it which makes even large events feel like an intimate celebration. It was so much fun to capture the wedding photos at Kohl Mansion that we still had energy left even after the 12 hour shoot. It also didn’t hurt that we live literally few minutes away and we were home to get rest in no time :)
Congratulations to Jenny and Alex!! We hope you enjoy this series:
Jenny looked absolutely stunning:
Natasha went crazy seeing the yellow shoes! She’s been hunting down her own pair for our wedding forever:
We didn’t have to ask twice for these fun-loving groomsmen to figure out what to do with the bouquets:
Our favorite shot of the girls:
Love the Kohl Mansion! How can you get bad shots with backgrounds like this?
One particular time of the day when the Kohl Mansion looked magnificent was at dusk. Capturing images of a venue just after sunset is something we try to to at every wedding and you’ll see these photos towards the end of this blog post.
The stars who made the day:
