Winter Wedding at the Palm Event Center

On February 24, Stephanie and Romeo were married after years of dating long distance. Their beautiful ceremony was held at St. Augustine in Pleasanton, CA. I have had the pleasure of photographing many Catholic weddings, and I love the significance of each element of the service. This wedding was no different, from the verses they chose and the songs that were sung.

After the ceremony, we drove 10 minutes down the road to the Palm Event Center where the festivities continued. The Palm Event Center has some lovely backdrops for group photos, as well as those intimate photos of the newlyweds!

During the reception, Steph and Romeo had the fun entrance, first dances, and as a special surprise, Stomper showed up for the party! (For those among us who are Giants fans like myself…he’s the A’s mascot ;))

Enjoy these photos of the celebration!
