Real Weddings: Melissa & AJ August 17, 2013

Melissa and AJ were one of the funnest couples I have worked with this year.  They both have such dynamic personalities and I loved them from the first day we met.  Beth from True Love Photo has done an amazing job of capturing their personalities on their wedding day just a few weeks ago. The couple was married at The Citizen Hotel in the Plaza Park Ballroom.  Their cocktail hour was in the swanky Scandal Lounge on the mezzanine level and then the reception was on the 7th floor Terrace Room with sweeping views of all of downtown Sacramento.  The Grange downstairs prepared the amazing food which included Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwiches and an amazing corn chowder for the first course of dinner.  La Tavola supplied the linens which set the color palate of silver, grey and a deep aubergine purple.  Shannon from Flourish did the gorgeous flowers while Shana Beals did the bride’s makeup and Hana Kim did the brides hair.  Karen’s Bakery made the scrumptious cake and Tom from Fretty’s DJ kept the guests dancing the whole night.  The pinnacle of the night? Slamson, the mascot for the Sacramento Kings crashing the wedding.  Check out the video:

Real Weddings: Natalie & Patrick May 25, 2013

Natalie and Patrick’s were married at their home in Lincoln, CA and the backdrop could not have been more breathtaking.  With the foothills as the backdrop they said “I DO” with a small group of their closest friends and family.  The tented reception was set next to their barn and even their cows came to the reception for a short time.  Many thanks to Celebrations! Party Rentals and Tents, Sweet Cakes by Rebecca for the scumptious cake, cineczar.com for capturing the whole day on video, Tuli Bistro for the yummy food, Hello Glam for making the bride look AMAZING, Buck Ford for playing an amazing show and Onelove Photography for these amazing pictures!

SNEAK PEAK: Michelle & Heart: July 6, 2013

Julia Aue from Vis-a-Vis Photography posted some sneak peak pictures from Michelle and Heart’s big day. From the double decker bus, to the huge surprise that even the groom didn’t know about (the Cal-Aggie Band-Uh storming the ceremony as they were pronounced husband and wife), to the lawn games, s’mores in the fire pit, ice cream sundae buffet from Gunther’s, the buffalo wings from Wingstop as midnight snacks, the picnic blankets, gorgeous flowers from Flourish, amazing layout, perfect lighting, fun graphic linens from La Tavola, scrumptious food from Culinary Specialists, handmade lemonade stand, the homemade jalapeño jelly jam favors, the doggie and trivial pursuit stirrer sticks, dog ring bearer and flower girl and the Davis Pedicab picking up the bride and groom at the end of the night…it was the best {and most exhausting} wedding I have ever done!  More pictures (especially detail shots are coming soon!)

Real Weddings: Megan & Drake June 22, 2013

Megan and Drake came to me all the way from Tenessee!  We did a lot of planning from afar but on June 22 it all came together perfectly.  The two love birds tied the knot alongside the Sacramento River at The Westin.  Afterward the guests entered the tent and were served delicious food from Scott’s Seafood, yummy cake from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca and danced the night away to tunes played by Matt from Extreme Productions Entertainment.  The flowers were done by Placerville Flower Market and the linens were from La Tavola.  The whole night was captured on video by Acti-Video and on film by Kris Holland Photography.
