Summer in the Bay Area is gorgeous - hot days, warm summer evenings, and beautiful golden light. I love everything about it. Lisa and Neil got married at the Los Altos History Museum tucked back into the quaint residential neighborhood of Los Altos. As their guests walked into the venue, they were told to grab a rally towel. Lisa and Neil are huge San Jose Sharks fans (hockey, for you non sporty types). If the guests wanted them to kiss during the reception, instead of clinking classes, they were supposed to rally. What an awesome personal touch for their big day! I knew that Lisa was beautiful after we met for their engagement session, but she exuded classic, timeless beauty on her wedding day. They will make beautiful babies. Okay, yes, I really did just say that. haha.
Weddings like this make me wish that I was a videographer as well as a photographer. Why? As Lisa and Neil took the floor for their first dance, a song started playing that I assumed was a professionally recorded track from some famous artist. It was beautiful. As I was taking photos, the circle of people who gathered around them started saying, "This is Lisa!" Huh?? That was Lisa singing on the track? Yes! Holy moly, that girl is TALENTED. Again, an amazing personal touch!
I had an amazing, fun day with this group of people. Their parents, Lisa and Neil's beautiful sisters, their friends...they are so lucky to be surrounded by a great group of people.
Lisa's sister and matron of honor (hey Bree!) was so cute and animated! Everyone was talking about her funny, touching speech for the rest of the evening :)
