Czarina & Lance - Jefferson Street Mansion, Benicia CA

Wozzers, where to start. First time I’ve seen so many tears of joy in such a beautiful ceremony. There was not a single dry eye in the house and it was so heart touching. The power of god was truly in this amazing couples heart. Czarina & Lance had their ceremony at Iglesia Ni Cristo - Church of Christ then reception to follow at Jefferson street mansion in Benicia

When I asked Czarina how they met, this is what she said “Lance and I met at a church gathering in 2009 same church we got married at 10 years later :) we were dating other people at the time, but God works in mysterious ways and brought us to each other in 2013. We're so blessed we ended up together.”

When I asked Czarina what her favorite part was, this is what she said. “Our favorite part of our wedding day was saying our vows at the altar. It was the sweetest and most memorable and sentimental part of our wedding.”

I also asked her is she had any tips for future brides :) this is what she said “Some tips I'd like to give to future brides, which were also tips given to me prior to the wedding are: 1) take a moment out of your wedding day, look at your husband, and embrace the fact that you're now .. married! 2) don't sweat the small stuff, your wedding will be perfect no matter what and 3) eat”

Thank you again for letting is capture your love story.


Stephany & Aaron - Delta Diamond Farm - Isleton, CA

My fun rockabilly awesome bride got married this month and man of man was it a party. Not only did she bring classic cars but also the heat. It was the hottest wedding i've ever capture at, a fun 116 degrees. Stephany and Aaron had me laughing the whole time and loving the day. I really can say I missed them as soon as I left. There were married at Delta Diamond Farm with best friends, family, and the sweetest dog by their side. I miss Stephany's laugh and Aarons fun personality, Congrats you too. Can't wait to watch your love grow. 

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.

Your wedding day is a breeze when you marry your best friend. Shannon said it best while she was on her honeymoon "First week of marriage has taught me that it's really like having a slumber party with your best friend"  There was so much love surrounding Shannon and Josh while they got married at The Ridge golf course in Auburn. My favorite part of the wedding was their first look, the worst part ... leaving :)
