No. 222 – Brena and Nathan

Yesterday we celebrated with Brena and Nathan as they Got married at the Delta King in Sacramento. The day was full of surprises – a lost but soon found ring, a pregnancy announcement, and clear skies after a week of wicked weather. The bride looked stunning in her gown and Nathan made the perfect groom – spending the moments before the ceremony meticulously setting up the reception ballroom. The happy couple is headed off to Fort Bragg and we’re hard at work putting together a video they’re sure to treasure forever. Usually our sneak peek video includes a portion of the couple’s ceremony, but since their ceremony was short and sweet (less than ten minutes overall) we’ve included the entire ceremony for them to enjoy!

No. 221 – Randie and Jeff

On Saturday we headed to the Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento to capture Randie and Jeff’s wedding ceremony. The happy couple traveled all the way from New York to celebrate with their family and friends here in Sacramento. The day started with rain but by the end of the ceremony blue skies were overhead — perhaps it was a sign! Randie looked stunning in her gown and the flowers and color scheme were gorgeous and very elegant. We’re getting to work putting together their complete wedding video, but for now, enjoy this sneak peek of their ceremony:

No. 220 — Rosemarie & Chester

Yesterday we traveled to Folsom to celebrate Rosemarie and Chester’s wedding at Lake Natoma Inn. After 10 years of dating, and two kids later, these two decided it was finally time to make it official on the 10th anniversary of them becoming a couple. Their ceremony and reception was held inside Lake Natoma’s Sierra Ballroom and luckily we dodged some rain so we were able to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings that Lake Natoma Inn offers. I’d offer these two good luck for their future together, but I don’t think they’ll need it. They’ve already been together as long as my husband and I have been together and after 10 years and two kids, they definitely have what it takes for a lifetime of love.

New for 2012 we have been selecting a “Memorable Moment” clip from each wedding. The idea is to provide a clip of something that everyone would be talking about the next day. Well the selection from this wedding was a no-brainer – it’s the cutest clip you will ever see of their son Noah slow dancing with both of the flower girls. Rosemarie and Chester actually weren’t around to see this priceless moment – they were busy taking photos with their guests, but I’m sure they’ve heard all about it. Yet another reason why it’s a good idea to hire a videographer – there are so many magic moments that happen during a wedding that a bride and groom aren’t there to experience. I love how Noah is playing it cool because you never want the other person to know how much you are in to them! And the thumbs up signs are priceless! Enjoy!

Memorable Moment: Antoinette & Mashon

We’re always in awe of couples who have the guts to write personal vows for their ceremony. Not only did Antoinette and Mashon pour their hearts out to each other in front of their friends and family, they managed to hold their composure throughout! Here’s a sneak peak from their March 4th wedding at Le Rivage Hotel in Sacramento, CA:
