Maria and Arnel – Wedding at The Ranch Golf Course San Jose

A newlywed showing off their Wedding Rings

The high school sweethearts, Maria and Arnel, tied the knot at their Wedding at the Ranch Golf Course in San Jose. Their 50s theme fun engagement session was featured on my blog a few months back. For their ceremony, they chose the Five Wounds Church near the downtown San jose. I have shot a few times in this beautiful and gorgeous church. The decor in this church are just amazing and I love this church because I can move around the side of the altar. Of course, as a photographer we have to be quiet, stealthy and respectful during the ceremony. That’s one thing we have to bear in mind because some of my favorite churches now banned photographers to move around which is very sad.

After the ceremony, we headed out to the Ranch Golf Course in Almaden, San Jose. I also have Photographed a number of Weddings there so it is nice to go back. We managed to squeeze in the time to get the large group of the bridal party and also a lot of the Bride and Groom’s picture. Then we went inside for the announcement and speech and then I stole the Bride and Groom for a 15 minute trip to the top of the hill for more portraits. The sunset in May was spectacular and you can see from the pictures below. I really enjoy photographing Maria and Arnel, because everyone was so friendly and happy. It is so easy to capture the unforgettable moments so they can go back and reminisce their big day. During this Wedding, I was assisted by my coleague, the talented Lisa Stone. Let me know if you have any questions, as always I’d like to hear back from my blog visitors.
