K+C Wedding | Acqua Hotel | Mill Valley

When I first met with Katie the first thing she told me is "no roses."  She wanted something fun and modern that matched the decor of her venue.  She really liked those anemones with the black centers but they were not season.  So we went with the Gerber daisies with dark centers - a pretty good substitute if you like those anemones.  My favorite thing about this wedding?  It was definitely the donut table.  Decorating the table was pure torture.  Looking at the pictures just now makes me want to hit up the nearest donut store (which happens to be called Pyscho Donuts.  Very telling, huh?)
Okay - moving on to the pictures.

H+C Wedding| Palm Event Center| Pleasanton

I would have to say that Helen and Chris were one of the most laid back couples that I worked with this year.  Their personalities really came through the wedding day - everyone in the wedding party had smiles on their faces and you could see that everyone was enjoying themselves.   They chose a beautiful venue - The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton.  I was thrilled to find out that I would be working with the very talented photographer Sarah K Chen again.  I worked with Sarah when she captured Cathleya and Mark's Wedding a couple of years ago!

Here are a couple of images I got from the ceremony and reception:

A special thanks to my sister and nieces for helping with this wedding!
