It was a beautiful day in early October, perfect for a fall Hakone Gardens wedding. We kicked Steph + Tarig’s beautiful wedding day off with getting ready photos at Residence Inn in Cupertino. When I arrived, I noticed that lighting in the room wasn’t great, and thus I decided it was best to do photos in the courtyard downstairs. And man am I glad I did! The Residence Inn happened to have a bamboo garden, which was the perfect prelude to our next photo stop: Hakone Gardens. Steph + Tarig chose to have their bridal portraits done here because we had limited photo spots at the Sarataga Country Club. It was honestly a blessing in disguise, because Hakone Gardens just happened to have THE most amazing fall colors at the moment. It was the most beautiful fall Hakone Gardens wedding!
At the end of it all, everything blended seamlessly for Stephanie + Tarigs’ wedding. From the bamboo garden at the getting ready location to the bamboo garden at Hakone Gardens, to the beautiful colors at Hakone and Saratoga Country Club, and Steph’s bouquet. Everything was perfectly sewn into the color palette and Steph + Tarig was just the sweetest cherry on top. I could not have been more thrilled to have photographed this wedding! Congrats Steph + Tarig on the most beautiful fall Hakone Gardens wedding!
