Story Behind      Moments

Theresa and Thomas celebrated their love story at Villa Montalvo, one of the most prestigious and exclusive private estates in the Los Gatos area – only an hour's drive from busy San Francisco.

Theresa's love for colors and flowers was the main inspiration for the entire wedding. Trang and her amazing team from Vo Floral Design helped transform the venue into a whimsical soiree, perfectly capturing the essence of a French chateau garden and the couple’s romantic vision. Soft blossoms in lilac, mauve, and taupe hues filled the wedding day scene. As the magic of the wedding day unfolded and the sun set low against the backdrop of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the venue embraced the enchanting feel of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.

In this natural elegance, the couple paid homage to tradition with a heartfelt nod to Theresa and Thomas’ roots through a cultural Chinese tea ceremony. It was a celebration blending cultural heritage with the couple's Northern California fairytale.

from the bride & Groom:

We had complete strangers coming up to us saying "OMG you're in such good hands if Amanda is your photographer!"

"[We] wanted to thank Amanda for being there for us on the best day of our lives (so far). From the moment we got together to shoot our engagement photos, my wife and I were confident that we picked the best photographer in the bay for the most important day of our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so pleasant to work with. We have been recommending Amanda to everyone!"
