Kelly and Isabel started Marlo and David's wonderful wedding day at the Westin along the beautiful Sacramento River. They met up with Marlo getting ready with the girls and started with a few inanimate photographs.

Marlo and David,
Your family is so beautiful! As I put together the extended sneak peak slideshow (below) and as I'm working on your album photos, and it made me both smile and brought tears to my eyes. I just feel so much love in this day. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wedding day. Isabel and Kelly did an amazing job of capturing you all exactly as you are!

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

I just love their reactions to each other for their first looks.

Beautiful bridal party.

David's daughters were the best little flower girls. And their Yorkie, Tyson, made the cutest little ring bearer.

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.

The ceremony ended just in time for us to use some of that glorious sun light.

Look at this back-drop! The colorful flowers couldn't have been more perfect for our beautiful couple.

Bella Bloom did all the floral decor for the evening.

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)

Sacramento NACE showcases 2014 Wedding Gown Trends

Wedding Photography, Fashion
Posted by Mai - 2/6/14

Mai posted by Mai

Its still early in the year, and if you're planning on finding the dream wedding dress, I suggest you do it now! I was at the Sacramento NACE fashion show a couple of weeks ago, and there were some amazing dresses strutting the runway from local bridal shops Enchanted Bridal Shoppe and Sparkle Bridal Couture.

There are various styles, fabrics, and textures to choose from, but lace is definitely a big trend again this year. It can be incorporated with necklines, sleeves, or all over the bodice, even a small separate cover-up jacket. One of my favorites was a Sottero & Midgley trumpet A-line lace gown. It featured a romantic v-neckline, and a corset closure in the back. The bottom portion of the skirt flowed out with the perfect length train (not too long, or too short). This simple style reflects an elegant and classy bride....totally my style.

No matter how many dresses you try on this year, personalize your look with these intricate textures and details. You'll have heads turning your way. To see more photos of some of the top trends for wedding dresses in 2014 check out this great photo article by PopSugar.

Teresa and I loved the hint of vintage with Kristen's accessories.

Fresh Face Make-up was on hand to add just the right touch of color to Kristen's already radiant glow.

Kristen's dress was perfect for the vintage feel she desired. Everything from her hair and makeup, head piece, jewelry, shoes and her cardigan was perfect.

Kristen's bridesmaids were some of the sweetest and most genuine gals you'll ever meet. They were all such a joy to be around. The bouquet's matched so well with the colors of the dresses. I love that Kristen had each bridesmaid wear the same style dress but a different color.

Kristen had a hidden Go-Pro camera in her bouquet!

Angella Floral Arts created the detail in the boutonniere and the floral arrangements.

The guys were all giggles and silliness. I think we may have only gotten one serious photo the entire day.

Kristen has been a part of The Dolanc String Quartet for many years. They played their beautiful music during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Kristen came out and played with them for their last set.

They played the most elegant version of Sweet Child of Mine, originally done by Guns & Roses.
