Amanda & Curtis - The Bayley Barn - Pilot Hill, CA

My love for old building and gorgeous brides was making this day pretty amazing. It was such an honor to capture Amanda & Curtis wedding at The Bayley Barn, An old historic home The Bayley house that was built in 1861 hopping to be the next grand hotel in Pilot Hill but Central Pacific railroad decided to go up Auburn and not Pilot hill so the hotel flopped.

When I asked Amanda what was her favorite part of the wedding was she said "Everything" "I loved walking down the isle with my dad and dancing and my sisters speech, it really touched my heart" I also asked Amanda what advise she would say to future brides and she said " Dont stress the small stuff, everything always comes together and to just enjoy every minute. When we found out we left the wedding rings back at the hotel and I was starting to have a melt down, I had to stop and remember I'm about to marry my best friend and all those little things dont matter I still got to marry the love of my life and we still had a beautiful ceremony" 

Thank you again Amanda and Curtis for choosing me to capture your amazing day :)  

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.

I had the pleasure of chatting on the phone with this amazing couple before we got together for the engagament session, they had me at Hope Valley and Husky for their session. This super cool couple was so kind to meet me and drive me up with them the rest of the way ( I hate driving in the snow ) We chatted and laughed for hours about beer, dogs, and weddings. The snow was perfect, the day was perfect, and Katelyn and Ian were perfect :) Can't wait to capture their big day.

Kristin & Munir - Mira Vista Golf and Country Club - El Cerrito, CA

I always like to meet my wonderful clients before the big day, but sometime giving time and busy schedules phone chats might be all we can do. So when meeting my bride and groom on their wedding day for the first time, I'm always nervous and anxious and hoping they like me. When I met Kristin & Munir for the first time on wedding day It was like meeting a long time friend. They both were incredible sweet, kind, and just down right amazing. I had a hard time leaving because I wanted to stay and hang out with them and their amazing family all night. Kristin & Munir were married at Mira Vista Golf & Country club  surrounded by friends and family from all over the world.
