Chris + Leah @ Cinnabar Hills Golf Club, San Jose (Wedding Photography)

I’ve known Chris and Leah for several years now, and I was excited when they asked me to officially capture the culmination of their wedding plans at the beautiful Cinnabar Golf Course in the hills above San Jose and Morgan Hill. We started the day at Hotel Los Gatos where some of the bridal party and family were staying – Leah’s suite was packed with people, surrounded by the usual chaos that comes with every wedding. I hung out with the ladies, sometimes a fly-on-the-wall, other times all up in their bid-ness. I like to change it up for variety’s sake!

After spending a few hours with the girls, I drove over to Chris’ house in Morgan Hill to see how things were progressing. Chris was busy settling his nervous canines, and anxious to get things going. But there was an underling current of excitement of things to come.

Next we arrived at the final destination, Cinnabar Hills Golf Club – a great venue with spectacular views. I heard they’ve got some great courses as well. But we were there to get some wedding on, not to tee off. Brittany Wilson, event coordinator-extraordinaire, did a fantastic job making sure things were rolling smoothly and that all the vendors were dialed in.

The ceremony went off without a hitch (well, with one “hitch” I suppose) with the sun shining, the skies pure azure, and the crowd beaming with happiness. We powered through the family formals and had about 20 minutes to walk out to the golf course to get some B+G formals done. A couple golfers were kind enough to spectate while we finished on the fairway, then we headed for the rough for some pretty epic photos with the sun streaming through the trees.

Inside, Denon and Doyle rocked the DJ scene – I recommended them to the couple and they surely didn’t let me down. After lots of dancing, emotional speeches and cake feeding, my day was done and all I have to show for it is these pictures.
