Based in San Francisco, CA and traveling worldwide, Victorio Li is a passionate photographer shooting intimate weddings and elopements for the adventurous, travel-inclined couple.
I met Hector and Ariel through a mutual friend, Binh. They had their wedding postponed once before and were really eager to have their wedding happen in these tough pandemic times.
The day started out in Santa Row in San Jose, CA where they got ready in a hotel where they were surrounded by close friends and family. There was definitely so much love for each other in both rooms! Everyone was just super happy, excited, and nervous at the same time!
Ariel received a special present from Hector and it was a cross necklace, as she sat down after getting her hair and makeup done, she read a lovely letter handwritten by Hector. I don’t know the contents of the letter but it definitely wanted to make Ariel cry and honestly, that’s what love is all about.
After getting ready, it was followed by the ceremony at a Church that meant something special to the Bride and Groom. It was an outdoor ceremony attended by no more than 30 people. After the ceremony, the Bride and Groom got in a vintage retro car as they posed for pics in front of the Church building where they were supposed to have the actual ceremony. I honestly can’t get over those pictures! Those were definitely my favorite shots!
We later met up somewhere near by to do cute pictures in the Mountains! It was lovely and super fun day with these two love birds!
Wishing these two much love and happiness <3
