Tina & Weldon - Rancho Solano, Fairfield CA

Ohhhh man where to start .... An amazing venue, an amazing couple and the band Tower of power ... say what!!!!!! This wedding was filled with so much fun, love, and laughter that I was not ready to go home. Tina and Weldon were married at Rancho Solano surrounded by friends and family from all around the world.

When I asked Tina what her favorite part of the wedding was she said "My favorite part of the wedding was seeing Weldon at the ceremony. I was nervous once I came walking out & saw everyone looking at me. But once I started walking down the aisle, I locked onto Weldon's eyes and saw his big smile! That turned my feelings around from being nervous to being super excited!!

I also asked her if she had any tips for future brides and she said "My advice for future brides is to get to get organized, get to know your vendors, & HAVE FUN! Being organized helps not only yourself, but everyone involved with the wedding planning. It helps for everyone to get on the same page as you & your vision. Getting to know your vendors made planning so much easier and was more meaningful to us. We felt that they really understood what we were trying to do & helped bring our wedding dream into a reality. Knowing your vendors helps with the flow of your entire day. RELAX! I know it's easier said than done but it's true. You will get stressed out moments which is natural. Be stressed for a few minutes but don't let that be the main feeling you get when planning the wedding. That will kill your excitement! Just know everything will always work out & sometimes, better than you initially thought!

Rachel & Nick - Shiloh Church - Vacaville Opera House

Church from 1875, bird seed, and a gorgeous bride ....ummm YES please. This day could not of gotten any better for me. Not only do I love weddings but I LOVE old buildings and the history behind them. The Shiloh church was built in 1876 and the minister arrived by boat up the Montezuma shough and picked up by horse and buggy. The Old graveyard behind has the remains of John Bird and the early pioneers of Solano County. But enough of me geeking out and more about this amazing couple that was married in this amazing Church and celebrated their reception at the Vacaville Opera house. Rachel and Nick thank you for being the most laid back, amazing couple every. Capturing your wedding was amazing. 

Katie & Josh - Green Valley - Backyard wedding

Every bride dreams of the perfect location for their wedding day. Whether it's the perfect country chic setting, or glamorous ballroom, we all have a vision in our heads. But when Katie and Josh were leaving a wedding venue that just didn't feel right, they noticed a few feet from the venue was this perfect little house for sale. Not only trying to plan the perfect day they decided to buy their dream house on top of it :) I cannot tell you how honored I was to capture there amazing backyard wedding. Surrounded by friends and family and Alamo they tied the knot in their own backyard where they can spend the rest of their life together. 

 

Mimi & Joey - Vintage Oaks - Vacaville CA

I get the pleasure of meeting a lot of brides and I fall in love with each and every one of them :) I laugh with them and cry with them and try my best to help them along the wedding planning way. When Mimi needed a little help in the wedding planning I was beyond happy to point her in the right direction, to helping her find the Venue, flowers, and the amazing Dj, I was beyond excited to watch everything fall in place for this amazing couple's big day. Mimi and Joey were married at Vintage Oaks in Vacaville. I love everything about Mimi and her personality and wish her and Joey years of minion love.
