Our friends’ Anya and Ilya’s exciting wedding took place at the gorgeous Chateau La Joye in Half Moon Bay. This couple had one of the most original spots for their engagement session in the junkyards of East Palo Alto not long ago, and their wedding day was also nothing short of amazing.

We got pretty lucky with the warm weather as it’s often chilly around these parts. The couple decided not to see each other prior to ceremony and the processional was truly a beautiful moment in time. There were four special people holding the Chuppah for the duration of the ceremony and the emotions ranged from laughter to deeper and more sentimental ones.

The reception was held at the same beautiful venue at an outdoor tent which provided a great ambiance throughout the night. There was a desert buffet, dancing, a singing performance and much fun into the night.
