Salina & Elijah | Valley Presbyterian Church Wedding | San Jose Women’s Club Reception

Salina and Elijah were married at the Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley, a beautiful church nestled in with the redwoods, and wide open windows bringing the trees right to the doorstep of their altar. We then went to the Windy Hills Preserve down the road for a few wedding photos in grass fields just turning into summer gold. The reception was at the San Jose Women’s Club, including Lion Dancing (a Chinese wedding tradition), tea ceremony, and even a first dance set to an operatic “Take me out to the ballgame,” which fit nicely with Elijah’s suave new Toronto Bluejay’s cufflinks that Salina gave him for the day.

Many thanks to Ian Balam for assisting me on the wedding day.
