A Valentine Wedding


What: Sue and Don's Wedding
When: February 14, 2009
Where: Cupertino

I had a fantastic experience doing a wedding this past Valentine's for Sue and Don. The bridal party stayed at the Cypress Hotel. Honey and I had been there a couple times for his Christmas company parties, so I was already impressed with the hotel. However, when I met Sue inside their suite, I got even more excited about their modern furniture and warm appeal. Scroll down below for some shots inside the hotel suite.

Although Honey was unable to come with me to help take pictures, I met a cool photographer named John Mateos Ong who provided me with these photos. Click here to check out more of his work and visit his website!

Anyhow, onto the photos!
Getting ready
(Sue's makeup look was completed already. Let me tell you, her eyes are so beautiful and perfect for placing false lashes on)

As we were in the hotel room getting ready, I remember how everyone was commenting on how beautiful the day was. So true! I think it was actually supposed to rain on Valentine's Day, but the sun was shining nice and bright. Yay!

Thanks for the photos John!

I was also able to get a few shots in with my camera when things weren't so busy. Here are a few shots for you during the prep time in the morning.


If you're looking for a hair stylist, please ask about my friend Margaret. She did a fabulous job! Very clean and detailed with what each bridal party member wanted. Here, one of the bridesmaids, K, wanted a Dita Von Teese look. Margaret started her off with the hair, and I finished the look with the makeup application.

Thank God for a beautiful day...and what a great way to remember an anniversary, right on Valentine's Day!


Best wishes Sue and Don!
