Meet Kristin + Manny, if you’ve been following my blog you may have already met them, I did their engagement session earlier this year and we had a blast! We ended up photographing their engagement on an extremely overcast day, so overcast that within 10 minutes of ending their sessions it began to rain. I was delighted that their wedding day had BEAUTIFUL weather! Perfect weather actually. It took place at Monte Verde Inn, a beautiful quaint colonial styled farm house venue nestled in the mountains just east of Sacramento CA, in a town called Foresthill, CA. It’s a breathtaking venue, and a photographers dream, there’s a lot of variety in this little oasis. A Red Barn (my personal favorite, who doesn’t love a red barn?!) Vineyards, Gardens, A Fountain, A Giant Tree Canopy Ceremony Spot (which in my opinion is one of the most magical ways you could say I DO!) and of course the beautiful house I mentioned earlier, that’s so full of character it just brings every creative part of your being alive! Capturing Kristin + Manny was not only amazing because of their beautiful backdrop, but filled with love in it’s finest form. Full of complete and whole acceptance for each other, when they read their vows I was actually in tears (don’t judge they were awesome vows!). And the entire day was about them enjoying the love that had for each other and their friends and family, the flow was just perfect. Now that you know I was extremely inspired by this day, you’ll understand why I have over a 100 photos in here as a preview… sorry if I got a bit carried away, but it was just too hard to narrow it down and tell this story from this one! I loved working with all the vendors that made this fabulous day, all the more fabulous. Hair by: Kelsey McCain Make-up By: Shana Beals DJ: Mike Woodall of HITS Entertainment and of course Monte Verde Inn, who catered this beautiful event, hosted it, and provided day of coordinating they did a FABULOUS job, and the food was simply phenomenal! ENJOY!
Thank you for capturing the love and happiness of our special day! My favorite one was the one where I’m laugh/crying during the ceremony. It takes me back to the feelings I was experiencing in that moment! I am thankful we had you there so I can show our future children some day!!!
