Pulgas Water Temple Wedding Photographer - James&Winnie

James&Winnie began their wedding day getting ready in downtown San Jose right next to their reception location at the luxurious Capitol Club.  The morning started out looking like it was going to rain all day. Just as we arrived for getting ready photos it cleared up and ended up being the most perfect day! After the first look in downtown San Jose, we headed to the ceremony location for more portrait time with James&Winne. The Pulgas Water Temple was where the ceremony was held. The water temple is such a pretty location, a true hidden gem tucked away in Redwood City. Bridal party joined us there and the ceremony was soon to start. James&Winnie are absolutely adorable together and have the best of time. They were smiling all throughout portraits and we never saw them stop while they danced the night away with their wedding guests. They have a deep love and respect for their families which was also shown to us during the whole wedding experience. Like the way they surprised us and took us out to dinner after their engagement session, these two are generous in everything they do! We love these little reminders of just how blessed we are to get to know each and every one of our couples and we have especially loved getting to know these two (and Lola, their beyond adorable pup).

Huge shout out to Renée and her team from Mariée Weddings for doing SUCH an amazing job coordinating the whole day! We have worked with some amazing vendors this year and Renée stands out as one of our favorites. One who has made the wedding day run so smooth and just perfect.

Without further ado, enjoy some of our favorites from their day below. Full wedding film coming soon :D

First looks are always a favorite for us! Doing one allows the bride and groom a private moment shared between one another before guests and bridal party arrive. It also always allows for quite a bit more portrait time with the couple which is always a plus!

Another reason we loved Renée, she spotted this stunning angle from the outdoor patio and we knew we couldn't call it a day without capturing this shot!
