Reina and Jake’s Wedding

by | Aug 9, 2009 | Weddings | 5 comments

Reina and Jake’s beautiful wedding took place at the Stanford Memorial Church and Dinah’s Garden Hotel in Palo Alto. When we first met with Reina to learn about the wedding plans we didn’t have a chance to meet Jake as he is in the US Navy. Shortly thereafter we took their engagement photos on the SF Embarcadero and we could plainly see through our cameras how much they love each other. Natasha and I have been excited about their wedding day ever since.

The Stanford Memorial Church is quite an amazing place for wedding photos – we love the abundance of natural light. Jake was dressed in a Navy white uniform and Reina’s dress, well, you can see how gorgeous it was in the shot below:

Following the Stanford Memorial Church ceremony we drove down to the reception venue at Dinah’s Garden Hotel. The warm and lovely celebration included a Mariachi band, a full candy bar, dancing, and many touching toasts by the family.
