Christina & Kelvin | San Jose Backyard Wedding

This was such a sweet way to wrap up a very strange year. Christina and Kelvin decided to go for their personal trifecta in 2020: get engaged, buy their first house, and get married! All amidst a pandemic. On New Year’s Eve, just under the wire, we met in the back yard of their new home (which they hadn’t even lived in yet), and celebrated their union with their closest friends and family.

“Seems silly, doesn’t it? A wedding. Given everything that’s going on.” – Ginny Weasley. “Maybe that’s the best reason to have it. Because of everything that’s going on.” – Harry Potter. So perfect.

Also, the black wedding cake was made by the bride.

So sweet, an emotional father-daughter walk down the aisle.

DIY decor by the bridesmaids, and homemade boba milk tea too!

Then Kelvin took over for the dinner prep– grilling steaks outdoors, with his groomsmen/woman in matching aprons.

Complete with rosemary from their new yard!

Such a lovely way to spend the last day of 2020.

Congratulations, Christina & Kelvin!
