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. :)
Their dog Poncho showed up to complete the Bridal party portraits.
The girls were such a blast to work with.
I love the colors in Belee's bouquet.
The guys were looking sharp. And goofy.
The ceremony was held at St. Francis of Assisi Parish.
St. Francis of Assisi is such a beautiful church and I love that we can use the balcony.
Congrats to the newlyweds!
Everyone was ready for a celebration to start!
I love this one of them!
We used the park across the street from the church for a few after ceremony portraits.
Back at the reception, their wedding topper was so cute!!
We had such a blast capturing your day Belee & Martin!! Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of such a wonderful day! Enjoy your extended sneak peak slideshow. Just click the following photo and turn up the music!
Jessica and Anthony were married at Wine and Roses, one of our favorite Venues. Wine and Roses is located in Lodi, California.
After hearing about how Anthony proposed to Jessica, during a wonderful vacation on the coast of Northern California, getting down on one knee on the beach while family watched from inside the house, we knew their wedding day would be magical.
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!
Now onwards to the photos! We worked with another great crew of wedding vendors!
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:
Jillian & Jeff first contacted us well over a year before their scheduled wedding date. Although there were a few changes in their venue during the year, it ended being an amazing day. You could feel the love from all the friends and family that had traveled from near and far to be a part of their wedding.
We worked with some fabulous vendors on this wedding!
