California is known for its magnificent redwood forests and sitting among these redwoods is The Mountain Terrace at Woodside. This venue is best known for its great lawn with its grove of beautiful redwood trees standing majestically behind it. This backdrop was the breathtaking scene for Angie and Angelo’s wedding.
The rows of wooden chairs sat lined up on the lawn, each adorned with white roses and baby’s breath, along with the wooden arch. The flowers that Virginia Ho of S and V Collections provided were simple and elegant.
Angie’s beaded gown from BHLDN was an art deco masterpiece with a cinched waist and draped lace sleeves that hung on her perfectly. Her rose gold strap sandals showed through the elegant side split that ran alongside the column gown.
She looked like a beautiful starlet from 1920s Hollywood with her soft make-up by Lara Geronimo and romantic upswept hair by Linda Lealao.
Angie’s mother helped her daughter by putting on her lovely vintage jewelry pieces. These moments will undoubtedly be the ones they remember. With this in mind, Dee and Kris took special care to capture each sweet kiss on the cheek.
Weddings can be busy and crazy and hectic, and sometimes we can forget to do the little things. We forget to breathe; we forget to laugh, and, above all, we forget to enjoy it. Dee and Kris stole Angie away for a moment to reflect on these things as the sun shined through the window.
In addition to standing by her side, Angie’s bridesmaids also made her giggle with some playfulness and a cheeky little pinch.
As Angie had fun with her bridesmaids, Angelo looked debauner in his sleek suit and tie. Angelo recently finished up his Internal Medicine internship at Cedars-Sinai and received his residency for Cardiology at Harbor-UCLA in Torrance, CA. Congratulations, Angelo!
A First Look session is a bit of time taken before the wedding for the bride and groom to see each other in an intimate moment with just them. It breaks from tradition; however, it offers unique and memorable images.
Angie and Angelo had their first look with each other hidden among the redwoods. It was quiet and secluded, and stunning. As Angie approached Angelo, he couldn’t help but smile in anticipation.
He was not disappointed.
This view from The Mountain Terrace was awesome. The sun shone through the trees and onto the couple. As they walked, they had a perfect view of The City in the distance.
This December wedding had perfect weather, beautifully lit by the setting sun. Angelo stepped out of the doorway from The Mountain Terrace’s Great Hall arm-in-arm with his parents onto the Giant Lawn. With festively flocked trees standing in the background, they marched down the aisle.
Angie glided down the aisle on her parents’ arms to her groom-to-be. Angelo met them with a hug and a few happy tears as they reached the front.
Angelo held his heart as he took in Angie’s beauty and savored the moment thoroughly.
Through laughter and tears, the couple said their vows to each other.
In view of friends and family, they were pronounced married. Finally, they turned to their guests with smiles, and they greeted everyone as husband and wife. The couple walked back down the aisle to the fantastic sounds of Bay Area All Strings and Brass.
Then the party started! Who said wedding portraits couldn’t be fun? Not these folks! Clearly, they enjoy each other’s company as they danced, posed, and laughed through the portrait session.
Along with the sheer beauty that The Mountain Terrace offers as a venue, they have also taken attention to detail seriously. Every detail was flawless, from this romantic ivy swing we were OBSESSED with to the market lighting over the redwood deck to the twinkle lights scattered throughout. In addition to this, quaint seating at a firepit and lawn games kept guests entertained.
The gorgeous floral arrangements were created by S and V Collections. The exquisite floral garnished appetizers The Mountain House Terrace provided went perfectly with the beauty of the floral arrangements.
Kalinda Law, the bride’s cousin, lovingly provided the artistic signage throughout the event.
Additionally, the table settings that the venue provided were so pretty. Done in the wedding colors of various shades of mint, everything looked amazing.
Ashley Wong Sweets created the delectable one-tier work of art cake. The cake topper featured the bride, the groom, and their beloved pitbull mix, Jazzy, in adorable clothespin form.
Angie and Angelo glided along the dancefloor as the husband/wife team at DJ Jeremy Productions played their song.
As the traditional dances finished, everyone joined the fun and the dancefloor filled up with lights,, laughter, and some seriously sick moves The party was on full throttle!
