These two were so laid back and just the sweetest people ever! So were their families! We had a nice evening (except for the groom being eaten alive by mosquitoes a few times..) taking bride and groom pictures and then the wedding the next day. As I have said before, I love when people choose to do that :) Sunsets are amazing!! All in all it was a great wedding with great people!
There is a place at Folsom Lake where these lovely little lupine flowers carpet the ground and for a long time I have wanted to take pictures there! Finally, I found someone to go with me and I just think she was the perfect girl for the spot! Emily and I had so much fun, so if anyone wants pictures in April this year, this place is amazing!
Here was another Oakland LDS temple wedding and we also went down to the marina in Oakland for the reception at Scott’s Seafood. It was so gorgeous down there..and these two were gorgeous as well! Both their families were awesome and we all had a great time! Other than the fact that my cell phone died when I was down there and I was without a charger so I was driving around downtown Oakland after the reception, in the dark, with no idea how to get to a freeway and no idea what parts of town were bad…yeah, that was a little scary, but other than that, it was such a great day! I obviously found my way home (with a little prayer!) :) And those evening shots on the marina….so lovely!!
This couple was married at the Oakland LDS temple and I was sad when I showed up because there was a big wall out in front of the temple and you couldn’t go up on top like you usually can! Everything was under construction!! Usually going on the second story of them temple, overlooking the bay area, is one of the highlights but I think we still found some lovely places where we otherwise wouldn’t have looked if we had access to those spots!
Here is another wedding from last year! We did the bride and groom photos the day before and I can’t stress how much I LOVE this idea and how much more relaxing it makes the wedding day! It’s a lot of fun :)
