Natalie + George: College sweethearts tying their knot on campus! (Santa Clara, CA)

Natalie and George met and fell in love at the Santa Clara University, so it was the perfect place to tie their knot at the Mission Church on campus.  

The church was a really beautiful and historic architecture. And on this special day for Natalie and George, it was glowing with the lovely couple and the cutest ring-bearer (who ran so happily towards the altar without the ring)! Emotions weaved through the whole ceremony, with tears of joy and remembrance touching every guest.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds had a fun time with their bridal party and college friends, strolling through their old stomping grounds, reminicencing the good old college days. And before heading to their reception, Oceano Hotel & Spa, they made one last stop at one important place - the HUT (SCU's college bar)! What a great fun place to celebrate!

The reception was also full of tear jerking moments, especially during toasting. And as the dancing started, everyone was just exhilarated, particularly the happy groom! Such my honor to be there to document all these great emotions and moments for Natalie and George! And special thanks to Julie and Alberta, the couple whom I also photographed their wedding a few years ago, for referring us to Natalie and George! 

Big thank you to my wonderful friend, Heidi, for working so hard with me!
