E. and D.’s big day at The Rose Hotel and Casa Real in Pleasanton was a sweet celebration of two people in love. From the day we met this couple and learned about their plans for the day we were 100% on board. On February 18th we became proud witnesses to the joining of two families and a bride and groom who truly live for each other.
The day started with a fun and creative photo session at The Rose Hotel. Our couple was full of style and we had a blast posing them while being inspired by the settings of this cool and historic hotel. The ceremony and reception took place at the spacious Casa Real. We love working at this venue because they take great care of their vendors. Everything just seems to come together so much better when everyone has the couples’ best interests in mind :)
Towards the end of the night guests were invited to head towards a dimly lit room to enjoy the soothing and beautiful sounds of Tin Cup Serenade. We loved watching and listening to the band while capturing candid pictures of guests relaxing and socializing in the lounge space.
Check out some of our favorites!
We LOVED shooting in and around The Rose Hotel:
Our couple was so great to pose – we hardly had to say anything to get natural photos full of emotion:
When we reached the ceremony room and lounge area of Casa Real we just had to setup a few more fun poses:
The ceremony room was definitely rocking a certain WOW factor:
Love watching the sincere and touching moments during the vows:
Casa Real decorations were just glowing with beautiful colors:
