I was so happy to be Jennifer and Shawn’s Sainte Claire San Jose Wedding Photographer. We had an engagement session a few months earlier at Testarossa Winery, which you can view here. These two met at work and are both teachers. They are also very fond of music, wine, and traveling, and are all around just really awesome people. We had a lot of fun together.
Jennifer and Shawn got married in the atrium room of the Sainte Claire Hotel, it’s a pretty cool room – very reminiscent of a greenhouse. Their colors were green and white, and the florals and table settings matched perfectly. White and ivory roses, hydrangeas, and button mums were bunched together amidst mosses and grass for the centerpieces. Sliced limes circled the glasses for a totally unique and very green look. Little miniature glass bottles with cork held wildflower seeds for the guests to take home. Place cards were tiny little manicured green trees with name plates – so cute! They had a very intimate ceremony with just a few family members, and also had a lovely sand ceremony which involved everyone present. The reception took place immediately afterward, with guests pouring in to congratulate the couple. Food, drink, and cake abounded (and was really good)! The two danced the night away and Shawn himself was DJ so only their favorite songs played.
