Belee and Martin's traditional Vietnamese Wedding was The Memory Journalists' last wedding of 2014! And Kelly and I couldn't have asked for a more fun and relaxed couple as these two. The day started with the girls getting ready at The Residence Inn in Sacramento. Earlier that week we were worried it may be raining, but we lucked out and dodged the rain that day. Throughout these images you may notice Belee in different dresses. She changed into four different dresses during the day. Yes, four. Her bridesmaids made her transition from dress to dress swift and quick. A dream team of ladies behind their girl.

Belee and Martin shared a first look at Capital Park. As you can tell it was raining earlier that morning. It stayed dry for the rest of the day. Luckily. :)

Jessica and Anthony met while both attending McGeorge law school 5 years ago. Anthony makes a really good attorney face, don't you think? He's got a great smile too. :)

All the boys were solid with their serious faces.

Loved their first kiss as husband and wife! I am such a sucker of kiss photos when the guy wraps his hand around the girls neck. It's just so sexy and loving!

Inside the party was about to get started, but we grabbed a few photos before everyone headed inside.

David felt bad that his groomsmen had to wear pink (blush) colored vests so he wore these pink socks to make them feel better.

Kelly and I had the pleasure of photographing Jill and Kevin's wedding last month at Arden Hills Resort and Spa. Jill had worked for hours to make sure every little detail was in place and honestly is was probably the easiest, meaning best and well planned event, that we've been at in a very long time.

It helped that we worked with some amazing vendors:


Venue: Arden Hills Resort & Spa
Photographer: The Memory Journalists
Make-up Artist: Shana Beals
Florist: Bella Bloom

Bakery: Village Cake Shoppe
Ceremony music: Creative Memories Entertainment
Reception live music: Reruns
Dance instructor: Del Campo Studios

Shana Beals was on hand to make everyone look their best.

We stole Shana's mirror to do a ring photo. I have a thing for rings and reflective surfaces.

The girls both looked amazing!

And Jill, as someone said of the photo I posted on FB last Friday, looked like she was a model.

One of my favorite photos of the day. Great photo Kelly!

As we headed outside to do some family photos before the ceremony, we caught this little guy arriving.

After a first look, we took Jill and Kevin outside for a few pre-ceremony photos.

A small breeze picked up just as the ceremony started and cooled everyone off just enough. I love Jill's expression as she sees Kevin down the aisle.

Jill and Kevin used the same dance instructor that Cory and I did for our wedding. Mike, at Del Campo Studios, is awesome!

Mike taught them how to dip and hold for the cameras!

At the reception, we enjoyed the sounds of the band Reruns, a 60's tribute band. They were fantastic.

Be sure to click the below photo to start the extended sneak peak slideshow. There is sound, so if you are at work, you may need to turn your speakers down. Enjoy! (be patient as the slideshow loads)
