Haley and Michael’s love story began when they swiped right on destiny via Bumble. Sparks flew, and love blossomed. For the proposal, Michael knew the perfect place to pop the question – the San Jose Rose Garden, where they had one of their first dates. The cherry on top? Haley’s sister played the paparazzo, capturing that pivotal moment behind the scenes.
As they set sail on their journey to wedded bliss, Haley’s favorite part was seeing her dreams unfold before her eyes: the dress, the lighting, and the decorations. Yet, this joyous process wasn’t without its challenges, especially for our lovely bride, who humorously admits to a touch of indecision. Fast forward to the big day, and oh, what a day it was! With 200 cherished guests, Haley and Michael’s love story found its perfect stage at not one but two stunning venues – the awe-inspiring St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church and the charming Casa Real in Pleasanton. Join us in celebrating Haley and Michael’s enchanting church wedding!
Haley And Michael’s St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church Wedding
We absolutely LOVED capturing the getting ready moments with Haley on her big day! Not only was she an absolute joy to work with, but she also had a delightful getting ready experience. Haley got dressed at her family home surrounded by her parents, bridesmaids, and even her adorable beagle pup! The atmosphere was filled with love and excitement as we watched Haley slip into her stunning wedding dress by Jane Hill/Kinsley James. Her hair and makeup, done by the fantastic Bridal MUAH team, perfectly complemented her natural beauty. And, of course, the dashing groom, Michael, looked suave in his suit from Men’s Wearhouse, eagerly anticipating their upcoming union.
Haley and Michael had a traditional ceremony at the stunning St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. The church was transformed with green curtains and breathtaking florals by The Flower House, which added to the ambiance of the ceremony. As Haley walked down the aisle, all eyes were on her, and Michael’s expression was pure love and awe. It was an honor to be a part of this special day, documenting every moment of their union. It was a beautiful testament to two people sharing their love with one another and those around them.
The gorgeous outdoors of Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery served as the perfect backdrop for Haley and Michael’s romantic couples portraits. With picturesque rolling hills and lush plantations, each frame was a true masterpiece. Haley and Michael posed effortlessly, radiating pure joy, walking hand-in-hand or stealing kisses. Our hearts were full, capturing their affection towards each other, and we couldn’t get enough of their infectious smile!
Celebrating The Newlyweds
Haley and Michael’s reception was a beautiful affair. The interior decor was a sight to behold, with a breathtaking chandelier that could rival the stars in the sky. Elegance was the name of the game, thanks to the splendid linens from Pleasanton Rentals, lighting by Fantasy Sound, and the stunning invitations by Paper Caper. And not to forget the pièce de résistance, Noland’s Bake Shop’s masterpiece of a cake!
Haley and Michael’s first dance was nothing short of magical. Imagine this: the room bathed in the melodic embrace of the Zac Brown Band’s “Your Majesty.” All eyes were glued to the dance floor as our newlyweds gracefully glided into their first dance, looking like they’d just stepped out of a fairy tale. But the party didn’t stop there! All thanks to the phenomenal Glen Riggs of Fantasy Sound, the night came alive with his electrifying DJ skills. It was a night overflowing with love and memories.
