Hollins House Wedding Photos, Santa Cruz

Wedding
April 13, 2014

I am always super happy to have another opportunity to come out and create Hollins House wedding photos. The reasons are quite simple, actually. This classic Santa Cruz wedding venue has a unique charm, in a comfortable yet classy golf club setting. Brides, grooms and guests alike are always remarking about the incredible lush scenery and views of the Monterey Bay, that can be enjoyed from the Hollins House lawn on any sunny afternoon. The beautiful setting makes getting great-looking Hollins House wedding photos an absolute pleasure for a photographer like myself! But tasty visuals just part of what makes The Hollins House stand out as one of the finer Santa Cruz wedding venues. They also have the excellent services of Events and Sales Manager, Margy Seifert. I like to think of Margy as every bride’s ally and Guardian Angel, because she is an experienced expert of special events planning and management, and she is 110 precent there for her brides and grooms. Their cuisine and banquet services are also totally top-shelf. At The Hollins House, I know the wedding will start on-time, and the whole day will flow smoothly without a glitch.

This was a lovely September wedding with a fine gathering of international folks – mostly Japan and USA – in attendance. The bride and groom selected Expressive Photographics for the coverage of their Big Day, several months earlier, after much research and reviewing of other professional wedding photographers in the Santa Cruz area. We photographed their engagement portraits far enough in advance for them to use a selected engagement photo on their super-cool save-the-date cards, and you can see their Carmel Engagement Session here. For those not on Facebook, you can also check out their Carmel engagement photos here. And now, I am pleased to share with you, the joyful wedding of Anna and Trevor, with this quick collection of favorite Hollins House Wedding photos!! Please feel free to share, pin and leave a comment if you like.

If you enjoy these luscious table-decor flower arrangements as much as I do, you MUST check out The Flower Ladies. They are some of the most enJOYable floral artists you’ll ever have the pleasure of working with. They love what they do and it shows in all that they do. They also made the grooms boutonniere and Anna’s gorgeous Bridal Bouquet. You can contact Nancy of the Flower Ladies, at nancy@theflowerladies.com or use the contact form on the Flower Ladies website.

The pictures you took of this wedding came out beautifully, Mark. You really captured the light on that lovely afternoon up at Hollins House. Your work is better than ever, and I'm sure Anna and Trevor were thrilled! I'd love those 3 photos of the table arrangements and the closeup of Anna holding her bouquet and smiling at her dad as they walked down the aisle. Thanks so much for sharing these and for your kind words about us. Sincerely, Nancy

    Thank you Anna! I just looked at all of these photos again, and some of them brought a happy tear to my eyes as I remembered you and Trevor's amazing wedding day, and all the wonderful people who were there to celebrate the occasion with you. I too am grateful, because I get to work with folks like you and your husband to commemorate such happy and important times!
