Josh and Nichole’s wedding featured in Real Weddings Magazine!

Congratulations to Josh and Nichole who had their wedding chosen to be featured in the current issue of Real Wedding Magazine! We can definitely see why it was chosen — Josh and Nichole did such a fantastic job planning a super fun celebration for their friends and family. All of their personal touches made a big difference in creating a unique event.

We are excited to blog their wedding today! Josh and Nichole were married at the beautiful Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln. Those clouds looming over the club did give us a few showers that day, but everyone was having too much fun to care!

To kick things off, I was with Nichole and her girls for getting ready. She was one of the most organized, easygoing brides ever!

Nichole looked so beautiful! I really loved her wedding gown, it was perfect for her!

While I was hanging out with the girls, Geoff was with the guys as they got themselves gussied up.

Oh my gosh, this little guy was so darn cute.

Josh was looking very dapper.

Josh and Nichole are so awesome for doing a first look! We loved all the joy and emotion.

We got to take some pre-ceremony portraits of the newleyweds-to-be. Everything was looking so green and pretty at Catta Verdera!

Time to get married! It started raining right as the ceremony started, but Josh and Nichole didn’t let it put a damper on their day! I’d say it only added to the memories.

Catta Verdera has such a cool, long walk-in for the bride. There is definitely plenty of time to soak it all in!

Despite the rain, it was a really wonderful ceremony. Josh’s dad was the officiant, so it was a very emotional and happy time for everyone.

Nichole’s sisters sang during the ceremony while the couple and their parents stood together in prayer. It was very sweet.

Married!

A few more photos of the happily married couple, then party time!

The reception was so beautiful!

The beuatiful florals were done by Blooms by Martha.

Talk about an intricate and unique cake! Sweetcakes by Rebecca did an awesome job!

One my my FAVORITE details at the wedding was this table that Josh and Nichole set up featuring all of the strange gifts they got for each other over the years.

I couldn’t help but take a ring shot with one of the weird gifts!

The couple made their grand entrance and went right into their first dance!

Josh and Nichole have the most expressive faces ever! Photographing them was so much fun.

They knew their party would not be complete without our awesome Shot Spot photo booth! Check out some of the photos here! Everyone had so much fun! One of our craziest Shot Spots ever!

They ended the night with a fantastic sparkler exit!

Josh and Nichole, you two were so much fun to work with! Congratulation to you both and we wish you many years of happiness!

Alan and Melissa’s wedding

Never have you met a funner, more carefree couple than the wonderful Alan and Melissa. We loved every moment we got to spend with them and their wedding day was a blast! They were wed at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Midtown Sacramento which was followed by a reception at one of our favorite places, Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln. Take a look at some of our favorite captures from the day!

Whew! All that getting ready is hard work! No worries, Alan…it was worth it. You both looked amazing!

Alan and Melissa got to see each other for the first time that day during their first look, which we did at the ever-lovely Capitol Park.

What a fine-looking couple!

After some couple portraits we headed over to St. Francis. Talk about a beautiful church!

After the church service, we headed over to Catta Verdera, which has SO many beautiful places to take photos.

We had a ton of fun with Alan and Melissa’s friends.

So handsome!

Melissa was a STUNNING bride.

LOVE this one.

Party time! The folks at Catta Verdera put on an amazing event. I loved all of Alan and Melissa’s cute details.

When the happy couple made their grand entrance, they went straight into their sweet first dance.

Seriously, I love these guys. They are so full of personality!

One of my favorite parting shots. I love getting the couple out for one last photo before we leave. It’s fun to get creative! This one is so cute.

Alan and Melissa, you two are awesome people who have come so far together and I know you are going to have such a fun life with each other. Your wedding was a fun and love-filled day and we are so thankful to have been a part of it. Many congratulations and best wishes!
