Josie and Jaime’s wedding was held at the picturesque White Ranch in Chico, CA. We absolutely love the barn and wooden shed there (we even hung one of their dresses from the shed for pictures)! The flowers, done by Melinda at M Creations, were gorgeous with bright coral roses that were a lovely pop of color for the rustic setting! Josie and Jaime did a traditional timeline, so before the ceremony we got a chance to take both of them around the venue separately to do individual shots. We thought that it was super sweet that for their ceremony they each walked in at the same time and met at the altar! Afterwards, we got a chance to take them around with their bridal party and take advantage of all the amazing spots White Ranch has to offer, including their gravel country road and the beautiful willow tree. For the centerpieces at the reception, they used unique glass bottles with a few flowers in each one and succulents by the side. Instead of a traditional caterer, they had food trucks that were absolutely delicious! (We are now huge fans of The Black Kettle and Ike’s Smokehouse!) Even their dessert was from The Cupcake Crusader food truck!

The Inn at Park Winters is such a beautiful location for a wedding! We took full advantage of it’s rustic elegance using the antique furniture in the house for shots of Kathy’s details. Kathy and her girls got ready at the inn and looked adorable in their matching floral robes and coffee mugs! Kathy’s bouquet was an beautiful arrangement of blush colored dahlias and roses, which also made for a great setting for their ring shot. Once everyone was ready, we took Kathy and Andrew all over the property for their pics. We absolutely loved the foreman’s house in the garden, which was full of antique furniture. It also had the bouquets of past brides at the inn hanging from the rafters to dry. That was something so unique that we had never seen before that we couldn’t help but using it as a setting for one of their pics! The ceremony took place on the lawn surrounded by beautiful, green trees, and it was super sweet that one of Andrew’s groomsmen officiated. The decor of the reception was perfectly matched with that of the inn. We loved the centerpieces with vintage books, succulents, and floral arrangements in old glass jars. It was super cute that the chalk board menu sign matched what they had done with their invitations, too! Once the sun went down, the strands of cafe lights were lit up and looked amazing!

Looking for ideas about where to have your ever after session and want to stay in state? Look no further! These are a few of the epic locations we’ve shot in California.

Patrick’s Point Park and Trinidad Beach: Elisa and Robby

Patrick’s Point has so many breathtaking areas that are great for taking photos. One of them is this amazing, gigantic, cliff-like rock called Wedding Rock, which is just perfect for epic ever after photos. Only a few minutes away from there is Trinidad Beach. It has huge boulders, and (most importantly to our Elisa in this case) it has water she could charge into in her wedding dress! (It was so perfect that the water smashed against the big rocks at the perfect moment for Elisa and Robby’s kissing shot, too!)

Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point, San Francisco: Stephanie and Grant

There’s nothing quite like Fort Point anywhere else in California. You can’t compare Stephanie and Grant’s ever after photos with any other session, and that’s what we love about this location. The fort itself simply incredible, and the view of the bridge is perfect!

Golden-Gate-Bridge-Fort-Point-Wedding


The North Shore of Lake Tahoe: Grace and Trevor

The north shore of Lake Tahoe is covered in these amazing rocks (yes we love rock pics) that we just love to use for photos. Some of them even go out into the water, and with the mountains on the horizon it’s the perfect recipe for pics. Then if you’re feeling brave, you can do what Trevor and Grace did and head into the water for some out-of-this-world romantic shots!

Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco: Karen and Brendan

The Palace of Fine Arts is absolutely breathtaking! Throw a wedding dress in that set-up and it’s like a photoshoot from a dream! The luxurious architecture paired with the glamour of a bridal gown always looks so gorgeous.

Arcata Bottom, Stone Lagoon, and Trinidad Beach: Katie and Scott

The Arcata Bottom has these weathered wooden barns that make for beautiful, rustic pictures. Not far from there is the meadow at Stone Lagoon, which is amazing and right next to the beach so it gives you plenty to work with for epic shots.

Trinidad-Beach-Wedding


Empire Mine State Park, Grass Valley: Sam and Jared

Empire Mine State Park has so many different pretty locations all in one spot! From its garden to its main brick building to its rustic aluminum barns, it’s the perfect place to go if you’re after a vintage spot for your ever after pics.

Empire-State-Mine-Wedding


Monterey, Carmel, and 17 Mile Drive: Lydia and Aaron

There is so much to love about this area, from the huge, gorgeous beachside cliffs to the super romantic looking forest, to the boulder-covered coastline. This place gave us some of our signature photos, so it’s very close to our hearts and we get really excited when couples decide to do a shoot here! If you’re looking for an epic location that offers a bit of everything, this is the place for you. If you’re looking for sunset ever after pics, this is absolutely the place for you!

Nicole and Quinn were married in Maui at the beautiful Olowalu Plantation House. The plantation is located right on the ocean and the views are amazing! They started the day off by getting ready at the Royal Lahaina hotel, which had a gorgeous view of the ocean, too. While we there, we totally couldn’t help but run down to the gift shop and buy some vintage postcards to use for the ring shots! Once we were at the venue, Nicole and Quinn did their first look on the porch that surrounds the plantation house. The water and light were absolutely gorgeous down by the shore, too, and we took advantage of a guy that was fishing off a nearby rock wall to do some really fun pics with him in the background. Nicole’s flowers were shades of coral, and her orchid headpiece was perfect for their island wedding. The bridesmaids wore coral colored dresses of different shades and styles to match the flowers, and the guys wore rolled up khakis and white button-up shirts. The ceremony took place on the lawn near the ocean under an archway that was simple and beautiful with strands of white flowers, crystals, and white tapestries. Their reception was full of little touches like flowers in the cocktails and unique wooden plates, and their first dance was perfectly timed with the setting sun and the palms swaying in the wind!

Sam and Sean had a romantic garden wedding at the Los Altos History Museum. We started off the day with pics of Sam and her girls getting ready at the Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto. The hotel had the most beautiful light coming through its windows, so we took advantage of that to do some gorgeous shots of Sam’s rings, shoes, and other little details (We totally couldn’t help ourselves and had to do a few pics of Sam in front of the windows, too!). Once we were done at the hotel, we headed over to the museum for their pre-ceremony pics. Museums are always such a fun and unique place to have a wedding, and each one is always so different from our typical venues! The Los Altos History Museum has a beautiful garden setting with trees and flowers all over the property. We are total suckers for wooden fences, so we decided to do Sam and Sean’s first look in front of a vine-covered one in the back of the property. Sam’s strapless, sweetheart dress with lace detail was beautiful, and we loved how it looked with all the fun buildings that they had on the property. Sam and Sean’s ceremony took place under the arbor in the central courtyard of the museum with the arbor decorated with garlands and the same lovely cream and pink flower bouquets that Sam and her girls had. Their reception was decorated with a vintage and postcard theme, and we loved their idea of having each of the guests write them message and well-wishes on the back of their own postcard.
