Anne & Dj - Yolanda Ranch, Woodland CA

Holly Molly what a wedding :) I’m in love with The Yolanda Ranch, What a perfect location. Anne and Dj meet at church and their love grow from there. This amazing, sweet, loving couple are truly in love.

When I asked Anne what her favorite part of her wedding was this is what she said “Hands down my favorite part of my wedding was having all of our favorite people in the same place at the same time. DJ and I had a moment at dinner to take everything in and watched our loved ones enjoying themselves. We felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude that they were all there to celebrate us.

When I also asked if she had any tips or recommendations for future brides, this is what she said “My tip for future brides would be to take in every moment because it goes by so quickly. Eat the amazing food, drink, dance, hug as many people as humanly possible and HAVE FUN!

Nothing gives you a big scare before your wedding like the wedding venue being under evacuation 3 days before your wedding.

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.
