This way to Tim and Elsa’s wedding photos….

We started off Elsa and Tim’s day with each of them getting ready, separately of course. First Dave popped in to see the boys at the hotel. Then we went to the Palmdale Estates, their ceremony site, where Elsa put on her dress. She arrived after coming from the salon and she looked gorgeous. Her cousin did her hair and it was a perfect look for her- soft and flirty and curly. I couldn’t wait to see her complete the picture with her dress. While her bridesmaids buttoned her up, we captured a few of her in the mirror.

Then it was off to the get married. The venue was so picturesque. Elsa and Tim were surrounded by gorgeous trees and flowers as they said their vows.

It gives me goosebumps to see their joy. They were so happy after the wedding ceremony. I love their exuberant smiles.

We took a few portraits at Palmdale Estates. Elsa was surrounded by her best ladies and her new sister.

Then we snuck away with Elsa and Tim to tour the grounds. These two have an absolutely fabulous sense of humor and love to laugh and play together. It was such fun. But it was also great to see their romantic side. Tim is so sweet on Elsa, totally cute.

Following the ceremony, Elsa and Tim went with their family for lunch. We met up with them again for portraits before their Chinese wedding banquet at ABC Seafood Restaurant. The restaurant is across from the Foster City Gazebo and a beautiful park. Here’s a preview of what’s to come….
