Elaine & Kai Wedding - Casa Real, Pleasanton

Casa Real is this brand new venue opened in May of this year. This is the first time I shot at this beautiful location nestled in the vineyards of Livermore.

Elaine and Kai had a beautiful wedding at the courtyard of Casa Real. The layout of the ceremony was set up in a circular orientation. It was unique and fun. Elaine - an energizer bunny, had so much life in her. Kai is her balance. They make a great couple together.

Although Elaine is the energetic one, always laughing, smiling, cracking jokes, it was also touching to see the softer side of her during the ceremony. She was definitely the emotional one. She started tearing the moment she walked out into the courtyard. I can't help but teared behind the camera as well.
