Karla & Karl - Fairview, Napa

When you run away to Napa to get married you know it’s going to be a great time. An endless week / weekend of great wine tastings, amazing restaurants, hanging out with friends and family right before an absolutely beautiful wedding. When I asked Karla what her favorite part of her wedding was she said “I LOVED EVERYTHING. I’m sad it went so fast, But loved my family being together.” I also asked if she had any advice for future brides and Karla said “Hire a videographer, it goes by so fast. You’ll want to look back at it.”

Karla & Karl were married at Fairview, Napa in true Napa style :)

Katie & Steve - Scott's Seafood on the river - Sacramento

When you spend your days playing on the river then having your wedding next to the river was no question. This location was truly magical, with a perfect hotel right off the Sacramento river and cool breeze coming off the water that was walking distance it was really a perfect day. Katie and Steve were married at Scott's Seafood on the river with their two perfect children by their side. Congratulation you two, thank you for choosing me to capture your lovely day. 

Lyndsey & Terry - Taber Ranch event center - Capay

Sometimes the wedding day is not about just the bride and groom, sometimes is about a family becoming one. This amazing family become one last weekend and I can not tell you how beyond happy I was to capture it. Not only at one of my favorite venues Taber Ranch but on the most perfect of fall nights. Lyndsey and Terry were married by their closest friends and family and with Alexis by their side the day could not be more perfect. 

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. 

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.
