Katelyn & Ian ... and Sienna - Field & Pond - Winters, CA

Nothing gives you a big scare before your wedding like the wedding venue being under evacuation 3 days before your wedding. The hills behind the venue were on fire and thanks to the amazing firefighters they where able to contain the fire that still went on to burn 90k acres :( Katelyn and Ian wedding was truly amazing. 

When I asked Katelyn what her favorite part about her wedding was she said: "My favorite part was how much love I felt surrounding us with our family and friends and how wonderful it was to have everyone there celebrating together." I also asked if she had any tips for future brides, and she said "My most important tip is to make sure to plan for some calm immediately prior to the wedding. I really was glad that I had a quiet night at the venue with just my sister and could just enjoy the moment and anticipation. 

Ian and Katelyn were married at Field and Pond in Winters, CA surrounded by friends and family ... and a flower pup Sienna :)  

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. 

 

Jessica & Max - Fairview - Napa

This couple is proof that you can find love anytime and anywhere :) Met salsa dancing in a club and the rest is history. Jessica and Max have the perfect family, parents and siblings that love them so much and their cute, perfect and incredible sweet children. The two tied the knot at Fairview Napa the day before 4th of July and it was a perfect summer wedding. 

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. 

Leahanne & Reid - Vintage Oaks - Vacaville

Sometimes you meet the love of your life in most uncommon ways. These lovebirds met and fell in love all because two people swiped right. This was such a fun wedding and I had a smile on my face the whole time. Leahanne was such a fun bride and I could've hang out with with her all night. Reid was such a laid back groom and we could've chatted about beer all day. Leahanne and Reid were married at Vintage Oaks in Vacaville and big shout out to Famous Creations for being day of coordinator, catering, and cake.   

Heather & Jed - The Park Winters

This family holds a special place in my heart. I've had the pleasure of capturing Jed and his family pictures over the past 5 years. So when sweet, tiny, and feisty Heather came along one year for pictures I knew and saw right away the love they had for each other. The Park Winters was the perfect back drop for this beautiful wedding. With the best something new add on, a growing baby boy soon to be welcomed into this amazing family, Heather rocked that baby bump. And when the father of the groom gave away his own son by ordaining the wedding, there was not a dry eye in the crowed. Congrats The Groeneweg's your family will always hold a special place in my heart.
