Katrina + Clayton {Crew Party} Santa Clara Mission // Bella Vista of Almaden, San Jose, CA


https://vimeo.com/76298202 Katrina and Clayton's wedding was the first official Swoon wedding of the year. This is a wedding I will definitely remember. There's so many crazy coincidences that made this wedding unique. Katrina and Clayton live in Seattle where I'm from. They got married in the same church I filmed my first professional wedding 11 years ago…to the month! Marcia Coleman-Joyner from A Joyous Occasion, coordinated both weddings!

Katrina and Clayton met at Santa Clara University. They were both on the university crew teams and met at a crew party.

There were so many thoughtful touches to this wedding. The adorable green crusier and trail mix favors for their love of outdoor activities. The cupcakes came from a bakery in Katrina's parents' neighborhood. The sign-in picture of the couple in their crew shirts and the oar arch as the couple exited the church. Notorious kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Great wedding from beginning to end.

Special thanks to Van Hsieh for being my additional filmmaker that day.
