It was such an honor and a blessing to have had witnessed, filmed and photographed Garret and Gina’s winter elopement wedding in Sonora’s Sparks Ranch Resort. Gina had reached out to me a few weeks prior to the wedding and told me their love story. Although tragic and hard their journey was, this next chapter was a time of rejoicing for everyone.
After much anticipation, Pedro and Susan became husband and wife in Stockton’s Morris Chapel on the University of Pacific’s campus. The stain glass windows (to which my second shooter, Gavin Moss, kept referring it as chandeliers haha!) throughout Morris Chapel brought upon a sense of reverence and timelessness to their wedding ceremony.
Married couples can testify to the strength and endurance it takes to be married to their spouse. For couples that had a quick shot gun style wedding, choosing to renew their marriage vows by putting together a big wedding party can be an extra special thing for the couple, their families, their close friends, and especially their children.
Daryl and Jessica renewed their marriage vow under the beautiful trees of Ripon’s Spring Creek Golf & Country Club on June 29, 2018. Daryl stood at the front of the ceremony site with his back turned away from the center aisle not turning around until Jessica had made it to the front.
There was nothing going to stop John & Jamie’s outdoor June wedding, not even one of Modesto’s hottest days of the year! Thankfully Bloms Ranch had a beautiful large tree on their property that provided enough shade for the guests during the ceremony.
Evan and Sarah just got married! Their genuine love and happiness throughout their day resonated with everyone who was able to make it to their wedding at Livermore’s Ravenswood Historical Site. Knowing both Evan and Sarah individually and as a couple truly renews the joy I have in choosing wedding as our specialty. There’s nothing else like witnessing the union between two people like Evan and Sarah.
The moment I met Angela, we only previously talked over the phone, I was nervous. That day was the day that we would finalize the timeline and make sure everything is going to be captured. There’s nothing more nerve racking than not being on the same page and expectations be out of proportion. Having the timeline set WAY before the wedding (1-2 months prior) and then meeting for making the final changes makes everything way smoother and less stress towards the final weeks or days toward your wedding.
If you have never attended a wedding at University of Pacific’s Morris Chapel, or even just been in the chapel itself, it is breathtaking. But not as breathtaking for Chris when Cecile walked down the long length aisle to vow to one another for life.
