It’s crazy busy around here! Wedding season is in full swing! I’m showing an oh-so tiny sneak into Jackie and Jeff’s super sweet day. The birds were chirping, the flowers were in full bloom, yummy food trucks…you couldn’t have asked for a better day (ok maybe less wind!)! You guys definitely have a fun crowd, and I still can’t believe you broke out into a flashmob dance…in it to win it! Enjoy this teeny sneak!!
Christine and Jordan are quite the dapper duo!! Not only did they have amazing families and friends, but Palm Springs is such a special place :) Just three months prior to their wedding, Jared and I tied the knot in this magical resort town as well. Something about the light, palm trees, pool, mountain views, a fab drink in hand and the memories!! I had such a hard time editing these wedding photos down to just a few (ok a ton) sneak peeks! You’re a beautiful couple with wonderful people in your life! Happy wedding! Enjoy the sneak peek of your Ace Hotel Palm Springs Wedding!

Yippee!! Don’t you just love this image!? Logan and Kyle – two sweethearts (literally…they’ve known each other since high school) tying the knot in magical California wine country… what a great Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch Wedding. Lots of love in the air, giddy family members, the sweetest guests and a rockin good time at this fall wedding in Napa. It was one hell of a way to end my 2013 wedding season!! From the polka dot pocket square, cigar bar, vintage tumblers used as floral vases, their pup, confetti exit to the sweet treat favors…wowza me I loved every bit of it. There are a TON of sneak peek images to gawk at so I’ll stop with the text type :) Huge thanks to Kara Brodgesell for being a rockstar 2nd photographer. Congratulations you two!!! Enjoy!
Who wouldn’t love to spend the weekend around incredible friends and family deep in a redwood forest to celebrate love?! Sarah and Hunter did just that. Gathering their nearest and dearest, everyone stayed on-site in the cutest A-Frame cabins surrounding by the smells and sights of our Northern California forest. They gathered at the most adorable barn and danced the night away! Many sweet memories were made…I especially like when the best man karaoke’d to the couple during his toast! Such a sweet moment. Many MANY congratulations you two!! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Hello Friday! I’m so very excited to share this special Ralston White Retreat wedding sneak peek with you! Random rain storms in September had us all a little worried about Susan and Ben’s gatsby meets rustic outdoor wedding. But lots of praying to rain gods and quick team work, we got this wedding under way in no time! Go team! It’s always such a pleasure to work with couples with fantastic imaginations and creativity. A real dream come true. I secretly have a lady crush on Susan :) Her energy is magnifying and really inspirational, it’s incredible to have witnessed the bond of her and Ben. Not only did they vow to each other, but they wrote a vow to their guests. From their personal style, family energy, warm friends, fun desserts, paper crown wearing guests, food truck dinner, epic piñata party to their generous spirits, this is what wedding days are all about. Magic. Did I mention their phenomenal theme and hashtag?! #tildeathdousparty Enough of the gushing, I invite you to check out their sneak peek! Enjoy! Special thanks to Melanie, my right-hand photo lady for the day.
This 30 guest Moon Mountain Retreat Wedding holds a special place in my heart. Not only do I know the bride and her officiant (who’s her bestie) through the photography industry, but their special day reminded me so much of how Jared and I hope our wedding is next year. Quaint, emotional in every way and set in an absolutely beautiful location with your absolute best friends and family. From the first moment Phil saw Amy walk down the stairs (we all bawled btw), he went after her to say hello and they walked down the aisle together. Their best friend, who knows just what to say when, marrying them under the glow of the streamers and Sonoma air. The mother of the groom’s teacup (from her bridal set) held their rings and was passed around to each wishing guest. Lots of happy tears, phenomenal cocktails and most romantic dinner setting under a draping canopy. Every detail was incredibly thoughtful and beyond swoon-worthy. Handmade linens with incredible neon seams and a ladies craft night fulfilled the painted jar centerpieces. Ah, sigh…I love my job. Enjoy the sneak peek!

Wowza me! I am so excited to show you Mary and Chris’s epic wedding day in wine country! Enjoy Events Co. absolutely nailed it with ALL the incredible wedding day details even the day-of paper goods! Those ladies never disappoint. The temps were pleasant, their smiles to each other were sweet and the mood was just right. These two are genuinely thoughtful and so very sweet to my heart. Game for anything and creatively energized, I knew with the ideas (watercolor place cards , homemade pickle favors, vintage lawn games and more!) and our rockstar wedding vendor team that we’d bring down the house at Kunde Winery. And we did just that. Enough writing, you have A LOT of sneak peek images to gawk at!! It was so hard to choose which ones to show you! Huge thanks to my right-hand photo lady for the day, Silvana :) Happy Sneak Peeking!
What do you get when a winemaker and a lively bocce ball player tie the knot in wine country? An adorable backyard ranch wedding in Napa with thoughtful details that’s what! Autumn and Stephen were so incredibly sweet with each other and their guests. It was so refreshing to see both of them really dive into the day taking in every sensory delight. Amazing food (oyster shucking & beer floats!), amazing wine and a flat out good time, I can truly say that the entire event and their guests were in heaven. Thanks so much for having us be a part of your celebration!! Big thanks to my right-hand photo lady, Melanie, for this one. Enjoy the sneak peek!
