Burlap, wildflowers, and country music made up Jamie and Richard’s wedding. Jamie and Richard mixed their love with comfort food, a spirited bridal party and their sweet families for a perfect day.
This adorable couple had their engagement session last year and they carried their down-home, country theme to their wedding. The girls spent the morning getting ready in a suite at the Cache Creek Resort in Brooks, California.
Jamie’s mother watched her daughter get ready
The guys spent their morning at the Golf Club, getting ready, hanging out, and laughing.
We hopped in a van and zipped up and down the golf course paths to the ceremony site. The day was warm, perfect for a fall wedding in California!Ladies, you are all stunning!
Richard waited anxiously for Jamie to walk down to him.
The ceremony officiant was Richard’s step-father, who spoke affectionately of the couple and their marriage.
The families and the couple were overcome during the vows and ring exchange.
After Richard and Jamie were announced husband and wife, they walked back down the aisle together and headed off to have a quite moment together. This was a completely natural and spontaneous hug. I adore them.
The staff at Cache Creek delivered drinks to the bridal party
and the party began!
After we wrapped up family and bridal party photos, the couple and I spent a little time in the evening light…
So elegant. Jamie looked comfortable, beautiful, and glamorous.
Jamie and Richard were carted down to the reception hall!
Her personal touches were lovely, and were the perfect accents to her country-themed wedding!
We snuck out of the reception at sunset for a few more photos
I love how natural they are.
Beautiful views, gorgeous couple!
The reception was full of laughter, family, and fun! Jamie’s grandma and grandpa were enjoying themselves
The best man’s toast was funny and sentimental.
And the maid of honor gave a touching speech.
Richard’s father toasted, and I could not stop laughing
Their first dance was beautiful.
Jamie and her father danced together and I held back my own tears.Adore this photo.
Richard and his mother danced and laughed, or laughed and danced…they were all smiles.
Pappy, Richard’s great grandfather, made an appearance on the dance floor! Incredible
