This wedding holds a very special place in our hearts for a whole plethora of reasons. In the interest of brevity, we will stick with our top few. :)

First, I (Joe) have known Daniel since I was in grade school because his older sister and my oldest brother have been dating (and are now married) since Daniel and I were just little tykes (if it can be said that I was ever “little”). It was also cool that Daniel and Sarah got married at my brother/his sister’s backyard at their new house! Which leads me to…

Second, one of the reasons that they got married at this particular location is that you can see the tree where Daniel proposed to Sarah from the hilltop where they had their ceremony. How awesome is that!?!?!? We love all things sentimental and meaningful to our couples when we are at weddings, so we just thought that this was pretty much the coolest and cutest thing ever. Which leads me to…

Third, Sarah and Daniel are friggin’ adorable together. It isn’t just us who noticed either. The officiant, every toast, and pretty much everyone who had access to a microphone gushed about just how cute Sarah and Daniel are together. Adorable PDA like woah.

There were so, so, so many beautiful moments and meaningful details at this wedding. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!

    Jasmine - OH me oh my. Talk about a gorgeous venue and couple. THOSE SPLITS. Ded.ReplyCancel

Miren + Peter’s Saddlerock Ranch wedding truly had everything. A wedding dress with pockets, an epic first look, a surprisingly aggressive giraffe (as it turns out, those horns on top of their head aren’t just for decoration!),  a pinata that required a tequila shot to take a turn at giving it a whack, and a weird old toy merry-go-round which, obviously, inspired us to do a big lit photo to end the night.

Ok, reading back through that list we realize that Miren + Peter’s wedding might sound much more weird/perilous and much less awesome than it actually was. Check out the photos, you’ll see that Miren + Peter’s wedding was gorgeousness!

    Mariah Nicole - I love these photos! And Peter’s physical reactions to seeing Miren for the first time are CLASSIC! Such a beautiful moment to capture!ReplyCancel

Fernando + Antonella are an all-around lovely couple and their wedding was equally lovely. They are sweet, their family is sweet, their other vendors were sweet, they gave us cookies that were delicious… their wedding was just wonderful from start to finish! It was also filled with beautiful moments like when Antonella gave Fernando a journal that she wrote in every day for the 100 days before their wedding. How sweet of a gift is that!?!?

Joe also got his new favorite nickname: the Cabbage King (No joke. His Pokemon Go username is CabidgeKing). Ironically, there was absolutely zero cabbage at this wedding… but we digress.

We could go on, and on, and on about these two and their wedding. But, this is a wedding photography blog, so we will shut up and get to the pretty pictures! THE CABBAGE KING DEMANDS YOUR ENJOYMENT! :)

    Jasmine - Talk about dreamy. These two are ridiculously adorable together.ReplyCancel

When couples contact us, we always send them a questionnaire that gives us information about their wedding so we can check our availability, etc. One of the questions on that questionnaire is “We would love to know more about your wedding plans, especially what you’re doing to make your wedding special or unique for you. What do you envision your ideal wedding to be like? We love details, so don’t be shy!” It is probably the most irrelevant question in terms of checking our availability, but we love to see what couples have planned for their wedding. Our dirty little secret is that we also love reading our couples’ answers to that question right before we photograph their weddings to see whether their original vision survived the planning process. Many times, the differences are night and day. We thought you could be the judge of whether Alia + Milton made their dream wedding come true:

“We want to be a little off beat, a little rustic.. That is us…we are practical…we like to do things ourselves and get our hands dirty… We are big backpackers and love being out in the woods. We also love to dance, even though both of us are huge nerds and not very good at it–except for ballroom– we took dance lessons for 6 months in ballroom for fun. It’s a shame that no one ever just busts out a waltz at parties. We would be all over that!… We are both super creative people with odd senses of humor who nerd out on the weekend and we are trying to make our wedding reflect that. We want to incorporate a sense of humor in the affair, but also keep it earnest. We want to focus on the natural elements as much as possible and bring the outdoors into the ceremony. We want to involve a lot of creative touches with signs, lighting, music choice, decor, etc.”

We think they nailed it!
