It was only five or six months ago that I looked at my work and thought that I should brave the “no’s” and submit my work to be published on some wedding blogs.  Thrilling is the only word I can use to describe the way I felt when I heard that The Wedding Chicks wanted to feature one of my Chicago weddings!  Very soon after that, I mean pretty much the next day, Wedding Wire contacted ME and asked to feature my other Chicago wedding.  I was blown away.  Now, a mere few months later, I am excited to have shared different weddings with different blogs.  Here is a list (and links) to some incredible wedding blogs and the features of my work.  I sit here totally amazed at where I was one year ago and where I am now.  I guess that’s another blog post though…

You might remember Trevor & Mallory from their wonderful little engagement shoot in Monterey, CA? I’m excited to share part 1 of their wedding day. They tied the knot on the last Saturday of November at Harris Ranch in Coalinga, CA.  I cannot tell a lie, I think Trevor and Mallory are downright fantastic and I LOVED getting to know them and shooting their wedding.  These two are seriously easy to photograph… it was the weather that made everything a bit tricky. 🙂

I shall leave you with a few images from the start of their wedding day.  Enjoy these details and come back soon to see more of this lovely wedding!

Susan and Kevin’s Wedding | Local Love Award Nominee

December 16th, 2010

Susan and Kevin are awesome… if you don’t know then Susan is the kindest, most loving, non-judgmental girl in the whole entire world.  And Kevin is hilarious.  He loves the Lord, serves wholeheartedly, and laughs constantly.  If I could describe the two in one word it would be joyful. Their wedding has been nominated for […]

Their wedding has been nominated for a Local Love Award on the Style Unveiled website which is thrilling for me!  Voting goes until the 31st of December and for awhile there we were totally in the lead.  Then, all of a sudden, another couple came from absolutely nowhere and has pretty much blindsided us.  But, you know what, there’s still a chance!  And really, if we don’t win, that’s totally okay.  I’m not saying that I don’t want to win, just sayin’ it’s not gonna be the death of me. 🙂

If you want to cast your vote nobody will stop you!  You can vote only once and as I mentioned earlier, voting ends on the 31st of December.

Joel & Devon Brown’s Wedding | Tulare, CA

Joel & Devon Brown wed on an October evening in Joel’s parents backyard. First, before we dive into their amazing wedding let’s back up a hair. Joel and Devon met a few years ago while attending Cal Poly. Both were majoring in Landscape stuff (sure wish I could be more eloquent with my words but I’m not sure if it’s Landscape Architecture or what, all I know is that they both deal with plants and the design of yard space). Both were from the Central Valley area and through a course of events I believe it was Devon who stole away Joel’s summer job without knowing she took it from him. Luckily, she no longer works there, instead her relationship with Joel began and bloomed into this amazing friendship (and love of course).

So, on that sweet evening in October Devon put on her wedding dress that didn’t resemble your typical bride, instead it embodied and showcased Devon’s personality and style. Joel waited until Devon was escorted down the aisle to see his bride. He was not disappointed!

Joel’s dad officiated the ceremony. For lack of better words, it was perfect. The best part, for me, was when Fred challenged Joel to wake up every morning before Devon and make her a cup of coffee. Fred has been doing that for his bride ever since the day they got married. That small gesture, the little bit of service done out of love really got to me. What a sweet thing to do for your love one! I had tears in my eyes and a huge smile plastered across my face. Not only did I love what Fred said but I think Joel & Devon are amazing and I was so excited to see them get married!

There really is so much more to share so I’ll try to quickly sum up some of the highlights… After the ceremony the guests mingled at a cocktail party while the wedding party headed out in a limo to take their pictures. Once we got back all the guests were escorted to the tables which were set up like a horseshoe and the food, catered by family friends, began to come out. Four courses were served and every bit of it was delicious! During the French Bistro style reception an accordionist played, guests chatted, and laughter filled the air. After the dinner ended people mingled a little more and helped themselves to delicious desserts provided by The Doted Apron. First dances were danced, toasts were given, and hugs were exchanged wrapping up a sweet, intimate night where friends and family gathered together to celebrate J&D Brown. 🙂
