San Francisco Ed Pingol - Bay Area Wedding Photography: California Wedding Photographer: maritess and edwin's wedding

maritess and edwin's wedding

commentator: monica

we had such a blast at this lovely couple's wedding! when we photographed maritess & edwin's e-session, we knew we would expect to see a lot of their creativity shine through on their wedding day. boy, were we in for a surprise! maritess is the queen of diy projects and did a fabulous job on all the fantastic details of the ceremony and reception, along with her equally fabulous coordinator, lisa of bellissima vita.

our day started at the larkspur landing hotel in milpitas, where the suite was a bustle of activity. just down the hall, edwin was also getting ready. we love it when couples get ready in the same location since we get a chance to see both the bride and groom prepare for their big day. tess even surprised ed with several special wedding day gifts: a whimsical turntable photo frame, a pair of socks that read "just in case you get cold feet," and "world of warcraft" cufflinks. she really knows her man! =)

their ceremony was held at saint victor's in san jose, which is the church that maritess attended growing up in the south bay. after the ceremony, we headed to the redwood city courthouse square, which was recently restored and featured beautiful architecture and fountains. of course, they had to also include part of edwin's hometown area and selected south san francisco as their reception location. from the time you entered their reception area in the ultra modern lounge at the holiday inn, guests were greeted with wonderful details, from the decorative guest sign-in table, the beautiful escort card display, and even personalized coasters for cocktail hour. the fun didn't stop there during the reception with beautiful singing, dancing, and a special game that got their guests to make-out. =)

congratulations, maritess & edwin! you both really know how to throw an enjoyable event!

instead of ed & tess kissing immediately after guests clinked their glasses, the dj from synchronized sounds pulled names of couples out of an envelope for them to "demonstrate" how they'd like the newlyweds to kiss. this was ingeniously hilarious!

a very touching "mother-son" dance
