As a Ruby Hill wedding photographer, I had the honor of capturing Ariana and Philip’s love story during their magical winter wedding at The Club at Ruby Hill in Pleasanton, California. This stunning venue, sitting on the famous Ruby Hill Golf Club boasts sweeping landscapes and architectural marvels. The perfect setting for this unforgettable day.
As you browse through the video slideshow and series of images below, join us in reliving the enchanting story of Ariana and Philip’s wedding day at The Club at Ruby Hill.
The Club at Ruby Hill is so awesome, offering an elegant backdrop for Ariana and Philip’s wedding. As their wedding photographer, I especially appreciated the incredible architectural features, such as the grand staircase and the majestic ballroom, which really bring a sense of luxury and sophistication to the wedding photos. The surrounding landscape with the infamous giant oak tree, added a touch of epic to this wedding.
Ariana and Philip’s wedding day was filled with joy, laughs, and memorable moments, including an emotional first look. Ariana snuck up behind Philip and tapped him on the shoulder, bringing a priceless expression of surprise and joy to his face. The couple then had another first look with their beloved dog, who seemed even more thrilled than Philip!
Ariana surprised Philip with a thoughtful wedding gift – a brand new PS5 video game console! I don’t think she could have given him anything else short of a Ferrari that would have been as eagerly received.
The wedding party loved striking poses for a Vanity Fair-style group portrait, an elegant and fun approach that underscored the elegance of their attire. This creative twist allowed me to capture the personalities of the wedding party, making for an unforgettable photographic keepsake.
Working with Ariana and Philip as their wedding photographer at Ruby Hill was an absolute joy. Their love for each other and the warmth they shared with their friends and family made my experience truly special. I’m honored to have been part of their big day and to have captured the poignant moments that will be cherished for years to come.
