Last time I saw Valerie and Mark was for their Central Park Santa Clara engagement session back in May. They were a really fun couple to work with then, so I’d been looking forward to what they had in store for their wedding at the Mountain Terrace in Woodside, California. I met up with Valerie at Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City where she was getting ready in an expansive multi-room suite with panoramic views of the lake and city beyond. She and the girls were in high spirits and I enjoyed my time with them for this mellow part of the day. Read on for the highlights of the day and my favorite photos that I feel capture the spirit of the event. To view all the photos, please visit www.GoodEyePhotography.com.
Disney charms for all the bridesmaids!
A small getting ready area at the venue, but still festive!
Some nice details at this wedding. Love all the purples!
Nice outdoor ceremony in the sunshine.
Some fun bridal party portraits.
Hahah! Push the bride on the swing! Why not?
Speech time for the besties.
Fun table group shots.
Mountain Terrace is a beautiful venue, check out that sunset and the building lit up for the evening.
First dances commence inside.
I like going outside sometimes to get a different perspective on the dancing.
Money dance and bouquet toss. She had to keep the flowers low!
Check out the portrait of the two of them – drawn by Mark’s artistic sister. Some cool ring shots and dancing!
