Brittany and Chris were wed under a starry night, with jazz wafting through the air, overlooking the twinkling building lights of San Jose. Bella Montagna is a stunning estate to be wed at: ceremonies and receptions are held on a wide grassy lawn overlooking terraced grape vines and all of San Jose. As night falls and the city comes to life, the view is breathtaking, not to mention the bokeh in the photos!
Chris and Brittany have more to celebrate than just their nuptials: Brittany is starting a PHD program at Yale this fall and Chris just took the Connecticut Bar Exam. Brittany was every bit the radiant bride. Her smile is gorgeous and infectious and every time I turned around, she was grinning in the most beautiful of ways. Her family is equally infectious: despite the subdued nature of the event, they had great cause to celebrate and celebrate they did.
I loved spending the evening under the stars with jazz, Brittany, Chris and their friends and family. Congratulations to the newlyweds! Their wedding was gorgeous and the location was awesome. I’d love to return to Bella Montagna to photograph another San Jose wedding!
