Karen and Richard - Grand Island Mansion

Karen and Richard were married on a beautiful day at the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove.  I feel so lucky to have had such wonderful couples this year.  Karen and Ricky, you were great to work with.  Ricky was so relaxed and Karen looked gorgeous.  Brides don't come any prettier than this.  We had a great time shooting all around the mansion.

Jen and Matt's Awesome Lake Natoma Inn Wedding

Jen and Matt were married at the Lake Natoma Inn.  I can't say enough how great Jen, Matt and the kids; Trevor, Summer, and little Gracie are.  Their wedding was a celebration not only of the love between Jen and Matt, but also the creation of a family.  Jen and Matt made the kids an integral part of the ceremony, including them in the wedding vows and the lighting of the family unity candle.  I had to hold back the tears!

Jen and Matt are both in law enforcement.  In fact, that's how they met!  They deserve some serious gratitude for putting their safety on the line for the rest of us and Jen's father made sure they got some during his toast that ended with a standing ovation for the couple.  It wasn't all mushy stuff though, this group knows how to have a good time too.  Everyone got out on the dance floor during the reception and let loose, including Trevor who had some serious dance moves!
