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!

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 :)

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.
