Korean and Chinese wedding at Casa Real Winery

You’ll never know where your relationships will lead you to. This time, we had a chance to document a beautiful wedding of Rachel & Young at one of our top 5 favorite venues in SF Bay Area, Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. Rachel is the sister of Lisha Wang’s boyfriend (to be more accurate: fiancé. Congrats Lisha!). Lisha is a dear friend and colleague of mine. I’ve known her since 2015. Long story short, last year, she referred me to Rachel for her wedding. And that’s how everything started.

Some people say that First Look will take away all emotion before the ceremony even starts. We don’t think so. If you are the emotional one, it will be shown regardless. At this wedding, we saw how emotional Rachel was when her dad gave her hand to Young. And it was one of our favorite moments when Young tenderly wiped away her tears. We also enjoyed the toasts that the maid of honor and Rachel’s sister gave them, which brought both tears and laughter. Some weddings are beautiful because of the view, some weddings are beautiful because of the moments. This one got both.

Also, we want to say special thanks to these wonderful vendors who made this beautiful wedding happen:

Christina Chen (from Makeup by Quis) for her gorgeous makeup/hair.

Zainab Ahmad of Casa Real for her great coordination.

Jefferson Espinosa (from DJ J Kixx) for keeping everyone dancing on the floor.

Elizabeth Tsutsumi-Hypnar (from Enchantment Floral) for the beautiful flower.

Jody Amos (from Amos Production) for the enchanted lighting and fun photobooth.

Fatema Nuruddin (from Cake Delight) for the beautiful wedding cake.

Gabriel Lopez for making the ceremony go smoothly.
