Ashton and Will’s Backyard Wedding {Los Gatos Wedding Photographer}

Ashton and Will  have this perfectly silly, tender relationship and her childhood home in Los Gatos was so fitting as the venue for their wedding celebration. In the heart of the California coastal redwood forest, her parents hosted 100 guests to toast their daughter marrying her soulmate. Ashton’s brother gave a small speech during the ceremony, stating they will “become more richly themselves together, than the chances are, either of them could ever have managed to become alone.” I found this quote so truly fitting, after hearing the toasts and knowing how Ashton and Will are with each other. Her father gave a glowing speech about his little girl, who has always been so warm hearted and compassionate. Will has always had a quick wit and has a wonderful sense of humor about himself, which creates such a joy between the two of them.

Her parents put so much energy into prepping their family home for this momentous day. Ashton told me they gathered up every twig that appeared out of place:)The entire day was full of personal touches and sentiment. The sun set on a family style dinner, served amidst laughter and the clinking of glasses. A slight breeze began to wash away the heat of the day and the party ramped up. Their families and friends enjoyed dancing on a deck with stunning views of the redwoods and the cafe lights lit the joyous faces into the night.

It was such an honor to be there to celebrate Ashton and Will and their new marriage. I wish them the very best in their new life together. Growing together to become the best individuals and couple possible. Congratulations!

Krystal and Ricardo’s Downtown Wedding {Sacramento Cathedral and Masonic Temple Wedding Photographer}

Oh Krystal and Ricardo, a couple of happy people who met at work, spent time together, fell in love, and are now married. Krystal is now stepmother to the sweetest boy and Ricardo officially has his bride. They have found so much love and peace together and it was such a joy for me to photograph their wedding day. You may remember this very smiley couple from their engagement session in Napa! Krystal completely enjoyed herself the day of the wedding, she did not disappoint and flashed her thousand watt smile all day long. She is such a sweet person and I was honored to witness her and Ricardo say their vows in front of their closest family and friends. They are excited to start their new family together.

The Sacramento Cathedral was the perfect back drop for their amazing ceremony. I chuckled with the couple later during their portraits, reminiscing when the priest mentioned that in 60 years these two will still me married, Krystal will still be beautiful and Ricardo will have no hair:)

Their reception at the Masonic Temple was such a great time, dancing, amazing mexican food, a fun crowd that enjoyed the mariachi band. The couple was completely surrounded by their families and friends, and it was especially touching when Krystal shared a dance with her mother, the two tearing up while hugging and enjoying their special bond. Ricardo and Krystal were able to run out at sunset for photos and we spend some time wandering the streets of Sacramento, having a few laughs, and capturing some of their beautiful connection. Congratulations to Krystal and Ricardo! I wish you all the joy and love in the world.
