Preppy Wedding at Dawn Ranch

Preppy Wedding at Dawn Ranch

2014 has been the year of me shooting multiple weddings at the same venue and I love it.   Just last week I shared this Dawn Ranch wedding and now I’m so excited to share with you Megan & Evan’s wedding! They hired a team of some incredible players including Enjoy EventsShotgun FloralKatie Nash and Elizabeth Hummert to name a few!  Megan (an interior designer by day) left no detail behind! Like starting with handmade signs from wood taken from Evan’s family farm and placed on each cabin personalized for their guests.  Then, Evan’s momma made each gingham napkin that also matched the groomsmen attire!  They had ridiculously beautiful florals, a really cool escort card display, paper airplane ceremony programs, and speaking of ceremony check out their amazing seating!  It was a thoughtful wedding filled with so much love, color and amazing energy. I mean —  I could go on and on and on…. so I’ll just let the photos take over!  Enjoy!  And, thank you Green Wedding Shoes for the lovely feature!  Congratulations Megan & Evan!

Star Chapel Methodist Church Wedding :: Margery & Gary

Last week my grandparent’s amazing love story, where in May will span 55 years, was featured on one of my favorite blogs Snippet & Ink. Maybe I am biased, be they look pretty darn cute to me. I really can’t get over how elegant she looks and how stunning her dress is! Scroll down to see an 8mm film of their cake cutting ceremony.

They were married at Star Chapel Methodist Church on May 24, 1958 in St. Joseph Missouri.

4th of July Wedding at Healdsburg Country Gardens

4th of July Wedding at Healdsburg Country Gardens

I love this wedding. I love this couple. Sarah and Christian threw one of the best wedding celebrations that I’ve had the pleasure to shoot. A casually elegant and rustic wedding at Healdsburg Country Gardens; a gorgeous setting surrounding by vineyards, oak trees and a barn. A wedding with so many personal touches and subtly highlighting the 4th of July holiday weekend with various hues of red, white and blue throughout. Sarah and Christian laying in the grass and under the oak tree; their friends jumping over them; laughter; their niece, mouth wide open waiting for a heaping spoonful of cake; and, Sarah’s uncle dancing the night away are among my absolute favorite moments. This wedding really solidifies how much I love my job. But, it’s really not a “job” when you love what you do, right? Brace yourselves, this is a BIG post, actually, I think my biggest one yet! So many photos I wanted to share. xoxoxoxox
