Frank and Weina tied their knot at the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden. It was a great day to start my summer's wedding season. I first met with the groomsmen at Frank's house and captured lots of great getting ready moments of the 'guys' helping each other, attending to the minute detail in order to get their attire in a perfect shape. And they had so much fun! Afterwards, I went to Weina and her team of beautiful bridesmaids to get some moments of the bride's team dressing up, and waiting for the groomsmen to pick them up.
As Chinese traditions, Frank and his groomsmen had to be challenged (with some very creative tasks) by the team of bridesmaids, in order to get into the hotel room to receive his beautiful bride. With the groomsmen smarts and the bridesmaids being easy on them, Frank was able to go into the room rather efficiently to receive Weina, and we immediately continued to Frank's house for the tea ceremony and their wedding at the Rose Garden. Both ceremonies were beautiful with lots of joy and touching moments. We also stopped by Stanford University campus to get some bridal shots before the reception at the Ming's. The decorations at Ming's was fabulous. But I was most impressed by the couple's talent in singing. They were such lovely partners and their beautiful songs entertained the guests well.
