Danny + Rachelle (Wedding Photography), Dolce Hayes Mansion, San Jose

After a super fun engagement session up in the city, I was psyched about shooting Danny and Rachelle’s much anticipated wedding at Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose. I arrived early as I pretty much always do to get the lay of the land and find cool places to shoot. It was a gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding, and excitement was running through the air like electricity. I met up with Rachelle in the Beryessa Suite where she was cool as a cucumber and all smiles. The big room was an explosion of hair products, makeup, clothes, food, and all the other usual collateral that accompanies a wedding day. I started doing my thing, capturing photos to tell the story of the day.

Danny was getting ready with his guys, and the scene was of course slightly different from the ladies. One of his groomsmen assembled a beautiful arrangement of shot glasses, and we all toasted to the hours to come. Did I mention I love weddings?

The rest of the day passed as a blur. A beautiful ceremony, lots and lots of formal photos, tons of creative and fun bridal party photos, dancing, emotional speeches, cake, and a few last minute B+G photos outside in the dark. Thanks Danny and Rachelle for including me in your festivities, I hope you enjoy the photos for years to come. Here’s a long slideshow of my favorite 175 photos that in my opinion tell the story of the day. If you don’t have the patience for a slideshow, feel free to browse the photos at my proofing site, www.GoodEyePhotography.com.
