Jana and Ricky - Dance Dance Revolution Wedding

Jana and Ricky’s wedding was one of the coolest weddings we documented this year. The first half of the day included laughs, tears, a beautiful ceremony at Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola, boba tea at Fortunes Chinese Restaurant in Milpitas, and DDR. Yes, you read that right, Dance Dance Revolution!

Jana and Ricky get ready at the Embassy Suites in Milpitas. It’s usually a great idea for brides and grooms to book separate hotel rooms in the same hotel. This helps give them their own space to get ready and enjoy the moments leading up to their ceremony with friends and family as they get ready.

The Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola, California, features a unique rooftop structure and a forest backdrop. It’s hard not to enjoy nature when attending wedding ceremonies here.

Just outside of Valley Presbyterian Church are tall red wood trees and a nice little garden, which was great for some intimate portraits of our bride and groom.

Golden light coming through the redwood tree grove behind Valley Presbyterian Church is simply magical!

Dessert bars at wedding reception give guests a better variety of dessert options. The hard part was keeping guests from spoiling their appetites before dinner started, lol.

This is so smart! Flip-flops for wedding guests are practical during and after the wedding.

Jana and Ricky had a boba bar by T4 set up at Fortunes Chinese Restaurant. This has become a popular trend in the Bay Area for weddings and we are NOT complaining! :D

I mean, what else are your best friends there for?

We’re not sure if Jana was shocked or impressed by Ricky’s champagne popping. Nonetheless, I think she was ready to party.

Bouquet tosses are one of our favorite parts of the nights to capture. You see an aggression you don’t expect in a lot of people, haha.

No sparkler exit here. Friends and family gathered around at the end of the night to watch the bride and groom dance together in DDR (Dance Dance Revolution)! You can see people in the background dancing along as well. What a way to end a wedding reception!
