Teyaum and Gizem know how to have a good time. Their wedding was a nonstop celebration. Most receptions have a time for dancing toward the end of the reception, but not the Kavishi’s. From the moment the ceremony ended, the live music began and family and friends hit the dance floor. It’s safe to say that we may not have this much fun at a wedding for a long time.

Jenn and Scott chose the perfect day in July to get married. Sure, it was warm, but the weather and setting were about as beautiful as you can find on a summer day in Northern California. To be honest, the golden hour shots were among our favorites ever. We had a ton of fun with the Huang’s and hope many beautiful summer days are in their future.

When she was little, Elaina used to sing “Someday My Prince Will Come” and on July 2, 2017 the bride married her prince, Cole. The setting was beautiful and the couple was about as in love as two people could be. Also, venues don’t get much more spectacular than Chateau St. Jean. Seriously, it’s pretty spectacular.

Things we love: live music, good food, love and of course…Jordan and Julie. Those names just sorta go together huh? Turns out, the people fit together as well. We had an amazing time with the Boehler’s at the beautiful Campovida winery in Hopland, CA. It doesn’t get much better than a wine country wedding in the summer.

“You are the Starbuck to my Adama and the Sarah Koenig to my Ira Glass.” These were perhaps the most romantic things I have ever heard. For those who aren’t so inclined, that’s geek talk for “I love you” and it definitely resonated with us. Ian and Pam were made for each other and we were so lucky to help tell their story. After you finish watching their wedding video, you should go read the “Red Rising” series. It comes highly recommended from the lovely couple (us too!).

Loy said there are two things he has always wanted to do: have a drone follow him will he drives his boat super fast, get married, and have a baby. On a warm June Saturday in Lakeport, Loy accomplished two of those goals (hint: no baby…yet). Marissa and Loy are the type of couple who exude adventure, fun, and most of all, love. We had an amazing time helping capture their story and are confident these 2 will be amazing parents once goal three is accomplished.

Katie knew what she wanted her wedding dress to look like, from as far back as she can remember. The dress, and everything else about her may wedding to Scott, was pulled straight from her childhood storybook. She played the role of princess and Scott, her prince. The Garvey wedding was filled with joy, from the first look to the couple’s sparkler exit. We couldn’t have asked for a better story to help tell.

When Kaiwan and Reena described their wedding to us, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. The blending of Persian and Indian customs and traditions provided the backdrop for a beautiful ceremony and an amazing overall day. The Chears are a fun loving couple and we really could have spent multiple days with them. They are the best.

Sometimes a couple just makes sense. You meet them individually and then see them together and it all clicks. Diego and Erin are a couple like that. We had so much fun at their late February Palm Event Center wedding. From the emotional ceremony to the party atmosphere of the reception, we really couldn’t have asked for a better day. Heck, even the weather cooperated.

Let’s start with the black wedding dress. When Jennie was a little girl she wasn’t sure if she would end up getting married. She didn’t know if it was for her. However, she did know that if she did end up getting married she wanted to wear a black wedding dress. Jordan and Jennie’s wedding day was different in the best way possible. From their intimate wedding ceremony to the steakhouse reception, the Ribera’s gathering of close friends and family is a celebration we will always remember. Seriously. It was the best.
