De Luna Ranch Wedding: Chuy & Lupe and Rosario & Jose

Two brides. Two grooms.  One day! What a unique experience it was for me to be a part of this wedding!  Hearing that there were going to be two couples getting married at the same ceremony definitely perked my ears up when I first heard from Chuy.  I had never shot anything like it before, but I was up for the challenge and I'm so glad I said yes!  Rosario, Jose, Chuy and Lupe were ALL such wonderful people to work with and their wedding was just so much fun!   Rosy and Lupe, two very creative sisters, put a special touch on every part of this wedding. Details, details, details!  From the floral ladders,  to the handmade signs, to the personalized Instagram photo booth...there was so much to capture!  The ceremony was held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and the giant fiesta continued on at De Luna Ranch up in Brentwood, CA.  The venue hosted two live bands, including an all women mariachi band who sounded amazing! The next band kept the party going strong with lots of enthusiasm and crowd participation.  Once I was done shooting I was tempted to stay and party myself!  :-P  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am so happy they chose me to photograph such a lovely day.  Getting to capture the love of not just one couple, but two was such a treat.  Congratulations to you both!!

Monica and Brian's Wedding at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club

October has nearly come and gone and I'm still catching my breath!  It's been a busy month, but so good at the same time!  I've been able to shoot mini sessions, engagements and weddings, all in just these past few weeks!  I've gotten a bit behind on blogging (I admit!) but it just means I have so many more fun blog posts around the corner with fresh pictures to show you soon :-)  For sneak peaks and more up-to-date news, please Like my Facebook page by visiting the link on the right! To start off the month, I had the pleasure of shooting Brian and Monica's lovely wedding at Cinnabar Golf Club with my dear friend Danielle, from Danielle Gillett Photography.  Often times I go into weddings not knowing what to expect from the day because really, every wedding is different and you can never quite predict what each one will hold.  I've had my fair share of stressful weddings, but this one ran so smoothly and peacefully that I actually had a chance to breathe and truly enjoy myself!  I originally met Monica and Brian last year at a wedding fair and I knew we clicked right away.  They are nothing but friendly and easy going and it was a joy to work with them.  I really hope to do many more shoots in the future with them and wish them many blessings in their new marriage!

"Mint to Be" Bridal Shower in Milpitas, CA

What a wonderful season it has been.  Not only have I been able to celebrate my sister's wedding and all the fun events that came along with it, but I get to enjoy a wedding and all the festivities of my own!  I feel so amazingly blessed to have the friends and family that I do and also, I couldn't ask God for a better fiancé!  It was a "Stock the Kitchen" bridal shower and it was just perfect.  My sister (yes the same one that just got married 3 weeks prior!) actually had the energy, the creativity, the organization and somehow found the time to pull this lovely shower together!  I was blown away at her attention to detail and all the fun things she personally designed, including a brilliant custom  crossword puzzle and advice cards on how to keep the marriage "sweet." My mom and bridesmaids all had a part in helping pull this together and I was just so grateful.  Big shout out and thank you to my beautiful friend Lupe who helped take all the pictures when I couldn't.  You can tell how much I enjoyed the party by the huge smile on my face in every picture! All the gifts people brought astounded me and made me feel beyond special.  Let's just say our kitchen is definitely WELL stocked now!  I can't thank you all enough for being by my side through this crazy/exciting time and I know I couldn't do it without you ladies!   THE DETAILS Mint bridal shower in MIlpitas, CA.

Handmade Wedding Details

DIY weddings are so popular these days and I for one am a huge fan!  Nothing puts a unique spin on your wedding day like handmade details spread throughout your venue.  It not only makes your wedding stand out from the rest, it also gives the bride and groom an opportunity to showcase their personalities and interests in one of the most meaningful days in their lives!  Plus, weddings are not a cheap event and anything you find where you do-it-yourself will save you lots of money.

For instance, at this Stern Grove wedding in San Francisco, the bride chose simple flower arrangements and was able to pull together an array of various wildflowers with some baby's breath in a mason jar and make a lovely centerpiece.  Next, save some money and combine some elements such as the wedding favors and seating cards.  All the wedding favors were homemade vanilla extract and also served as the escort card telling each guest where they were seated.  For a fun spin, the bride gave each child a beautiful paper crown as their favor and also added a tag with their table number as well.  One of the most clever crafts of the day were the adorable felt flags waiting on each chair at the ceremony.  There was a variety of sayings scattered throughout, including the couple's wedding date, and the guests waved them as the newlyweds walked down the aisle.  Lots of cute details and some simple ways to save money.  That combination is always a win in my book.  Please feel free to Pin this image if you like what you see!

Michelle's Bridal Shower

It's been such an eventful time in my family's life!  My dear older sister Michelle got engaged last year and now her wedding is just around the corner next month!  I've had the privilege of being her maid of honor and my main responsibility was throwing her bridal shower.  I'm not going to lie, I spent countless hours prepping for this party and being the perfectionist I am, I wanted everything to run smoothly and look awesome! Inspired by the all the fun ideas on Pinterest and other creative blogs, I had my work cut out for me.  I decided since my sister is a espresso fiend...specifically a Starbucks junkie...I wanted to incorporate a coffee bar along with some tasty desserts to snack on. My lovely sister Marissa was a big help with the baking, along with my mom, who made the cookies and cake pops. Marissa made the cutest cupcakes that looked like mini Frappaccinos and we adorned them with custom made Starbucks logo sleeves that added the perfect touch!  One of my favorite parts of the shower was having specialized M&M's that not only said "Marcus and Michelle," but also had photos of them printed right on the M&M!  Michelle definitely got a kick out of that! Other handmade details include the "Bride to Be" sign, the spray painted gold vases, tissue paper pom poms and the beautiful flower arrangements (made by one of the bridesmaid's moms...BIG thanks!).

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the party!
