Mayra and Michael

When I talked to Mayra and Michael before the wedding, they told me the church was famous for being difficult to photograph in. “Oh no,” I didn’t say. I’ve been doing this awhile and have had to deal with my share of tricky lighting situations. Was the lighting tricky? Yes, but I’ve seen worse. Anyway, Mayra wins the prize for happiest bride of the year so far. (I’m sure other brides were every bit as happy, but it really showed on Mayra’s face; she just beamed.) Their wedding included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony at the reception.

Ceremony at St. Francis of Assisi in San Jose, California. Tea ceremony and reception at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View, California.
