No. 270 – Jessica and Doug

On Friday we got to witness something magical as Jessica and Doug FINALLY tied the knot at the beautiful Wine and Roses in Lodi. These two have loved each other for over 21 years, and since they don’t have any gray hair, that means that their love began when they were only in the 5th grade! That anticipation of knowing each other for so long and waiting for this moment to happen for such a long time was so evident on Doug’s face the moment he caught a glimpse of Jessica under the tent before she walked down the aisle. And the look on his face is the epitome of why you need to have a wedding video to fully capture that moment. Even more touching were the personal vows that they wrote and read to each other and the playfulness they displayed in the ring exchange. But don’t take my word for it, check it out:

No. 269 – Lorena and Tim

Yesterday we wrapped up our double-header weekend with Lorena and Tim’s daytime wedding at the gorgeous Vizcaya Pavilion in Sacramento. Lorena’s day started out great as she discovered that brides don’t have to pay for their Starbucks coffee on their wedding day! And it continued to get even better as her “pretty in pink” wedding materialized into everything she and Tim hoped it would be. The happy couple is headed to Maui for their honeymoon and we are now tasked with giving them a keepsake they will treasure forever! In the meantime, here’s a look at their ceremony:

No. 268 – Courtney and Michael

We kicked off our double-header weekend with Courtney and Michael’s wedding on Saturday. Christ Community Church in Carmichael was the setting for their ceremony, followed by a reception in Arden Hills’ Gold Room. I always love couples who are brave enough to put themselves out there in front of their friends and family and do a choreographed first dance. With all the stress of wedding planning, who has time to rehearse a dance? But these two obviously put in the time it takes and they ended up wowing their guests. The other unique aspect was how they got their parents in on the action and choreographed the parent dance as well. You’ve just gotta take a look:
