John and Laura are married (teaser)

Genuine, kind, and sweet are just a few of the words we’d use to describe John and Laura. Spending more time with them at their wedding only reinforced how much we absolutely love being around these two wonderful individuals. Their wedding was a carefree and relaxed day that could not have been better! I thought it would be fun to start off their teaser with an awesome reaction from John at their first look…perfect!

With a gorgeous bride like Laura how could you NOT go slack-jawed? Seriously could have photographed her all day.

More gorgeousness to come!

Geoff and Ashley’s wedding in a fall wonderland

Wonderful Geoff and Ashley! These two are absolutely adorable. I am so excited to share their sweet and lovely wedding. Geoff and Ashley met each other at her Uncle’s Superbowl party. They both loved their opposing team but still fell head over heels for each other! They were married at Monte Verde Inn on in November. It was a perfect start to fall!

While the ladies were getting ready, Geoff was with Geoff. It is not very often I will get to say that! The guys prepared for the day just across the hall from us.

Time for their first look! Can’t you feel the love?

Geoff was ever so kind to get rid of a spider that had landed in Ashley’s bouquet. He was off to a great start to being a good hubby!

I love all of the fall colors.

Who could say no to tossing a few leaves around just before they get married!

Then we got these two off to get married. Early November was surprisingly perfect for an outside wedding. It was just warm enough and the fall colors were in full force. Love it!

The folks over at Monte Verde always do such a beautiful job of setting the stage for a lovely party. The reception details were so cute!

Geoff and Ashley Thank you again for having us apart of your big day! You were the perfect couple for a beautiful fall wedding!

Shannan and Eduardo’s sunshine birdsong wedding

We feel so lucky to have been a part of Shannan and Eduardo’s recent wedding at the Monte Verde Inn in Foresthill, CA. It turned out to be such a wonderful day and Shannan and Eduardo included so many adorable personal details. I’ve been so excited to share the photos. Here we go! First off, take a look at the cute map they sent out with their invitations. Shannan actually drew and painted it herself. What a talent!

Yellow being one of their wedding colors, Shannan wore the most fantastic yellow heels. I adore the bright color!

One of the bridesmaids made these cute mixed media necklaces for all the girls and Eduardo’s aunt did all of the beautiful florals. It is always so nice to get people involved like that.

Speaking of more craftiness, check out the boutonnieres that Shannan made for all of the boys. Aren’t they fabulous? I heart billy ball flowers big time!

Time for a really sweet first look. Always my favorite part of the day.

Shannan and Eduardo had a very touching ceremony. So many happy tears and joyful faces.

The details at this wedding did not disappoint either! They incorporated birds into the decor, from the table numbers, to the cake toppers, to the cute little vintage birdcages.

Probably my favorite little detail was the papel picado banners as a nod to Eduardo’s Mexican heritage.

Their smiles were infectious!

A new favorite first dance photo.

Shannan and Eduardo, thank you SO much for letting us capture your amazing wedding day. You two have the best friends and family, and we loved getting to hang out with them all day! We just know you are going to have nothing but happiness in your marriage and we wish you the best!
