Brad and Michaela’s colorful, casual vintage wedding

Brad and Michaela’s wedding was so perfectly casual, beautiful and so perfectly THEM! We had a wonderful time and each and every stage of the day. You could really tell so much heart was put in to every aspect. We also had a blast designing their wedding invitations which you can check out here! Our day began at a bridesmaid’s house where Michaela and the girls were getting ready.

Brad and the boys met up with us at the house where Brad and Michaela had their first look before heading out for the day! Geoff took some photos of the handsome Brad before he saw his bride.

It’s the funniest thing…I tend to think some of our brides or grooms resemble celebrites. 🙂 Anyone else think Brad looks like Bradley Cooper? They are both super good looking!

After the first look, everyone piled into the limo and headed to Old Sacramento for our portrait session. One of the places we stopped into was a candy store. How “sweet”! (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

It just so happened that it was Time Traveler’s weekend in Old Sac so there were people in Gold Rush costumes everywhere. Awesome moment of the day…we were taking photos near the Old Eagle Theatre and they pulled us in and invited us on the stage to take some photos. They even presented some champagne to the happy couple.

The whole bridal party even got to join them on stage!

Then Geoff and I split up to photograph the guys and the girls.

Michela gifted these handmade rings to her bridesmaids. So cute!

Michaela was such a happy bride! She looked absolutely beautiful.

Geoff got to have some fun with the guys too!

After an awesome portrait session in Old Sac, we all headed over to Mulvaney’s to get these two hitched!

One of the unique things about getting married at Mulvaney’s Building and Loan is that the ceremony is literally standing room only, which I think is really cool! All of your guests get to stand up with you while you marry the one you love. 🙂

After the ceremony, we headed out for a few more portraits of the newlyweds. Brad and Michael actually live very close to the venue which made it so we actually got to shoot in their home on their wedding day! I LOVED that!

I was loving all the cute details at the reception. Everything had a handmade touch and there was lots of color!

I am such a sucker for patterned bunting!

I love how the bridal party “borrowed” props from theВ Shot Spot for their grand entrance!

The cute little monogram we designed for their Shot Shot folders!

I gave myself a little pat on the back for this next ring shot. That takes a steady hand!

Such memorable toasts!

The bridesmaids gave Brad bicycle-related items to help him remember to be a good hubby to Michaela! It was so funny!

Okay, how adorable is the cake they cut? The guest enjoyed yummy rich chocolate mini-cakes.

Congratulations Brad and Michaela! Your wedding was as adorable as the two of you! Thank you for choosing us to share it with you!
