Jillian and Joe's - Glamorous wedding at the Curiodessy Museum

July 30, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

What can I say about this couple??? Serious I love these two. I’m so glad that they found me and booked me to capture their wedding. From our first meeting to their engagement session to their wedding day, our friendship has grown.  All this combined had made their wedding so much more fun to capture and to be part of the celebration.

What I love about the wedding…

  • The venue! They had their ceremony at the Curiodessy Museum located in San Mateo. It has been by far one of the most unique and fun venue. The otters even came out for photos. I also love the eucalyptus grove behind the museum. It was the perfect setting for this fun couple and their bridal party for photos.
  • The dress. Jillian was gorgeous in that Maggie Sotterro dress. IT fit her perfectly.
  • I love have the first look at Pier 5, the same place we had their engagement session.
  • The dessert bar from Just Delightful Cakery was amazingly beautiful and tasty. There was even a smores bar included. Super yum!
  • Jenny’s Churros was present serving churros. 
  • Photo booth fun provided by Mobofoto
  • An espresso bar from Maya Espresso. This is a photographer's dream midway through the party.
  • The mariachi band during the ceremony and cocktail hour. 
  • All the little details: the little sparkly black love birds on the cake from Rachel's Cake's, the little bottles of Tapatio favors, that were also seating assignments, the black and gold globe where the guest leave their thumbprints as a "guest book", flowers and candles everywhere, the luminaries that guided the guest to the parking lot at the end of the night. I could go on and on. One for thing for sure is that Jillian and Joe had thought of everything and made sure that everyone had the best time ever.
  • Last but not least..the RINGS! you know I love wedding rings and I love taking photos of them. Jillian and Joe's rings were so sparkly. LOVE it!


Every family and friend present had truly enjoyed Jillian and Joe’s celebration.
