What. A. Day! So much beauty, so much joy and so much love and laughter throughout! Coli was a radiant bride and glowed the entire day. She wore a beautiful lace dress (and I LOVE lace), adorable ballet flats and a family heirloom watch as her bracelet. As a Stanford alumna, all the action for the day happened right there on campus. Stanford really does have some great nooks and crannies for gorgeous photos! Coli had the brilliant idea to have her first look with Ryan in what she referred to as the bamboo forest. In reality, it was just a walkway in between two chemistry buildings, but the fresh, towering bamboo growing there made all the difference! We got some great portraits of the two of them there and then jumped on their private Mexican Party Bus and headed to the church! Stanford Memorial Church is jaw-dropping and I was thrilled I got to shoot there.
After the ceremony, Coli’s sister had arranged a surprise performance from the Stanford marching band and man, was it lively! Coli and Ryan were beyond surprised and had a blast marching along and dancing to the music. It was quite a treat, but the fun didn’t stop there! Next we were headed out to Palo Alto Hills Golf & Country Club for the reception, where everything was beautifully set-up by Asiel Designs. The night continued on with toasts, cake and lots of dancing…including another surprise performance, this time from the groomsmen! It was quite the day, filled with so many great moments and I’m honored I got to capture those timeless memories for Coli and Ryan!
