Colleen and Patrick are dear friends of mine and I felt so honored to photograph their wedding up to their formal portraits. I handed the rest of the day off to a trusted colleague, Allison Andres, and was able to enjoy the reception as a guest. They both got ready at the elegant Fairmont San Jose before heading to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum for their ceremony and portraits. Embracing the venue's unique atmosphere, the wedding decor was minimal with a tropical desert chic vibe.
