We are very excited to share this totally gorgeous Saddlerock Ranch wedding with you. Sara + Sam are not only absolutely gorgeous on the outside (have you seen their engagement session BTW?!) but beautiful on the inside as well. We recently lost our 3rd Musketeer over here at Marianne Wilson Photography. Our best pal, Penny pup, experienced sudden extreme kidney failure and we were, for obvious reasons, completely devastated (and still are, of course).  We lost Penny almost exactly one week before Sara and Sam’s wedding. Anyone who has been married will tell you that the week before your wedding is when all of the little issues start popping up and wedding planning frenzy gets cranked up to 11. In the midst of this craziness, Sara + Sam took the time to send us a beautiful book about doggy heaven because they saw our posts about losing Penny on our personal Facebook pages. I mean, who does that?? They do! Because they are SO awesome and sweet.

Thank you Sara and Sam for being such selfless, warm hearted people who love so fully and thank you for having us be a part of your wedding day! We hope you enjoy this little peek into your beautiful day!

Ok, we shoot a lot. We have photographed 250+ weddings and engagements together (that doesn’t even count the ones we have shot separately)! Many times our couples want to include their furry family members in their weddings and engagement sessions and we love it! But this is the first time we showed up and our couple brought their furry friends who was a cat! We have shot some awesome home sessions with kitten pals but Cherise + Michael brought their little one out to the hills of Malibu with a bow tie and all. Pretty adorable if we do say so ourselves. Of course, we had a blast with these two who had no problem roaming the brushy Southern California hills and splashing in the cool Pacific waters.

Soooooo, Jennifer + Jeremy’s wedding was pretty much overflowing with cuteness. Oh, you want proof!?!? It just so happens that we conveniently have a sample list of adorable evidence right here:

  1. Jennifer and Jeremy’s nicknames for one another are lobster and otter. Stop “aweeeeeee”-ing! We haven’t even gotten to the wedding cuteness part! Jeremy’s cufflinks? An otter and a lobster. His socks? Lobster socks. Bottle opener at the bar? Lobster. Now you may commence “aweeeeeee”-ing and then read on!
  2. They have an adorable dog, Moose, who walked down the aisle looking super dapper with a bow-tie. You all know that we are suckers for the four legged family members.
  3. Jeremy sang to Jennifer with their live band at their reception.
  4. Jeremy’s best man and two friends played/sang Jen’s processional song. IT GETS CUTER!!! The song? I Lava You from Pixar’s short film “Lava” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh4dTLJ9q9o) and they sang it SO well that we almost cried.
  5. Their wedding bands are melted down and re-cut from Jennifer’s maternal grandparents’ and great grandparents’ wedding rings.

Now that we all agree that their wedding was an explosion of adorable awesomeness, you may see some photos.
