It was such a pleasure to work on Sharlene and Jason’s photo. Their wedding theme color was romantic and sweet. Fall season afternoon lighting was soft and perfect. And of course, our dear wedding vendor peer Nicole, delivered the best for the couple. Hy and Frank got it easy due to Nicole’s hard work.

First, ring shots



Bridal bouquet. I love the sweet touch of butterfly.





Program close up. No, the program doesn’t grow on the flower. I think Hy or Frank just put it there for a shot 😛   The elegant program was a wonderful collaboration between Sharlene and Susanne Wang at Cards de Luxe.   I wish I met Susanne earlier so Hy and I didn’t have to DIY.  I remembered Hy and I almost called off our wedding because we were fighting so much trying to get the program and sitting card done.  Lesson learned, girls, get professional help can really help you reduce stress level before your wedding.


S for Sharlene.


Sharlene and Jason exchanged their vows in front of the sundial, a special place in their heart. Here is the sundial decor.


Head table decor for the Chinese restaurant.





Table number and dinner menu.


Some samples of how you can fully utilize your engagement photos 🙂



Very unique and creative cake. Hy said this is Half Dome in Yosemite. Did he guess right?



Some news this week, Hy and I went to an IPO party this Friday. Woohoo .. It was our first IPO party. In silicon valley, if we are lucky, we hope to go to more of those. 🙂 It was quite fun and exciting to hear about the company story, from birth to IPO. The founders talked about the growing pain, difficult hardship they endured, validation of first customer, excitement of first product shipped and all the anxiety and patience for the road trip. Friday, they got to enjoy the sweet taste of success. The story really encourages me not to give up during hard times and continue having hope for the future.

Hy and Frank will be heading out Thanksgiving week for a wedding in Big Island Hawaii. The whole team here at HyStudio are very excited. While the boys are out, I am hoping still be able to post some photos (again.. long backlog ..). So, enjoy your upcoming Thanksgiving vacation, but do check back with us during the break.
