Hayes Mansion Wedding || Danielle + Finn

October 28, 2023

San Jose, Ca Summer Wedding

One thing I love about being a Bay Area wedding photographer is the diversity in all the locations of the venues, from weather to esthetics it’s just unbelievable!!  I love that some weeks I’m at a foggy beach or ranch, to then being at sunny golf courses or beautiful mansions like Danielle and Finn’s wedding at The Haye’s Mansion.

Danielle + Finn:

This wedding will forever be a favorite going down in history!  love serving this family; I seriously feel so much love by this family I almost feel like family when I work with them. They are the kindest and sweetest group of people. 

Danielle and Finn had the most perfect wedding day of classic, elegant, timeless wedding.  I could shoot this wedding every weekend and never get bored! From the setting, to the bridesmaid dresses, the invitational suite and Danielle’s stunning shoes, they will be able to pull out images from years to come and they won’t have aged!

Danielle and Finn met on good ol’ Bumble, which most of my couples these days is a common occurrence, they enjoy watching Rom coms, trying new recipes by cooking together, and golfing and hiking.

After the most fun time getting ready, the best first look I’ve ever done, and some gorgeous pictures in and outside the Hayes Mansion we headed over to the church. 

I’ve had so many catholic weddings this year and they all are so amazing to me.  This one though seemed super special.  The priest was so kind hearted to Danielle and Finn, he even serenaded them!

Heading back to They Hayes Mansion after the ceremony to enjoy cocktail our with a saxophone player and some AC, because it was sure one hot day outside!
