Cassie and Jesse were married in a forest setting in beautiful Sebastopol, Ca, among family and friends who traveled far and wide.
Cassie loves Disney- no, I mean she LOVES DISNEY. Her family had season passes growing up in Orange County for 17 years, and they went countless times every year. It was so centered around Cassie, that her brother joked that the season passes dried up when she left for college. They integrated Mickey mouse ears and Disney characters hidden throughout their elegant setting,
Jesse brings a peaceful, kind, sweet energy that complements Cassie just perfectly. These two make a great team, and we wish them the best on their continued journey of building a life together.

When I think of Matt and Alyssa, I think of humor, kindness, and respect. Humor, because they’re both hilarious but in totally different ways; she’s sharp and witty while he’s unintentionally hysterical. She laughs the hardest when he’s “performing”, and it’s just the cutest. Kindness, because even on a 108 degree day, Matt was willing to go anywhere for photos and even kept his jacket on the whole time- only after asking if Alyssa would prefer them on or off. He just wanted her to have the best wedding day ever, which I’m pretty sure she did. Respect, because they have so much of it for each other, but also their wonderful parents who were deeply involved in all of the planning of their event.
Taber Ranch was the perfect backdrop to celebrate the next step in their relationship, as it’s near where they grew up, where they now live and work, and where they will build their lives together. It’s such a great place for those looking for a ranch/barn setting with TONS of vintage and handmade details. The staff made the day perfect and flawless, along with all the wonderful vendors who worked their magic.
Congrats Alyssa and Matt!

Derek and Polly got married on what was supposed to be a 78 degree day with clear skies and sunshine. What happened instead was that there was a midday downpour that followed Polly from her hotel room to the venue. For someone who has spent a year planning a June wedding with no chance of showers, this was stressful. Thankfully we were at a venue with options, we planned the day with a padded timeline, and had the luxury of waiting out the rain until it was nothing but sunny, clear, and perfect.
Derek is the third child in a family who I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the past few years. The third and last Klescewski kid to get married in three years, it was bittersweet to work with them for the last time on a wedding. Derek, Tara and Brooke had such differently styled weddings, and it was so much fun to look back at how their personalities show through in the details and general vibe. I look forward to document their growing families in the future!

Kerry and David are so full of happiness and light, it was only fitting for their wedding colors to be blue and yellow to go with their beautiful Lake Tahoe backdrop. This was such a fun-filled event. With a bunch of Santa Barbara Gauchos in attendance, it was a non-stop party from start to finish!

Elizabeth and Evan were married at The Lost Whale Inn, a hidden gem up on the coast of Humboldt County. What an incredible place! It was our first time in the area, and there was no shortage of beautiful photo ops and locations to use. We could have stayed there all week long.
These two are really awesome people. They told me that their wedding weekend from the crab feed rehearsal dinner to the reception party would be a big ol’ love fest with every single person making the effort to attend, so each person was a special member of their life. It definitely showed.
Sara and Jason were married at the Forest House Lodge, an all-inclusive wedding venue and hotel nestled in the foothills with amazing views and small town charm. These two nature-lovers brought friends and family from far and wide to celebrate their love story with the groom playing live music, and the bride dancing in the front row the whole time.
