FIND IT FAST
We had been waiting for this Hidden Valley Music Seminars wedding for over a year! You may remember Jeff and Hien from their epic engagement session where they took us on our tour of Facebook land, rented out AT&T Park where the famous San Francisco Giants play, and had a fairy tale sunset ending to the day at Sutro Baths. An absolute dream day!
The wedding day arrived and the rain was being relentless. We arrived especially early to find all the possible covered areas, and once we had a game plan, we knew this day would go on without a hitch! We found the most adorable southern style porch and knew right away this was it! We spent the morning in a cute little cottage just steps away from the venue. Music was playing, champagne was being poured, and hair and makeup happening in every corner. Hien jumped up as we walked in the door, she was just a glowing bride, excitedly showing us all of her details! Jeff, being a fitness trainer himself, was outside in the rain with his groomsmen, running hill sprints. We were getting tired just watching them!
Finally the moment arrived for the first look. We drove the ideal spot we had found, and magic happened. Jeff and Hien had written vows to each other they wanted to read together in private, and the water works began. These two have so much chemistry, we couldn’t imagine a couple more in love! The rain died down just enough for us to drive by these gorgeous cherry blossom trees we had seen earlier that morning. We jumped out of the car, literally spent less than five minutes there before the rain returned, but we’re so glad we did! Pink blooms in the winter? Yes please! Let’s not mention the part where I thought it was a good idea to shake the tree to see if blooms would magically fall, and it was full of water and completely soaked me! Oh my gosh, thank goodness I tried it before I put the couple there!
Jeff and Hien, congratulations! Your Hidden Valley Music Seminars wedding was absolutely breathtaking and we couldn’t be more excited for you two and cannot wait for some future adventures together!
