Can we talk a bit about Rosie and Joe ? Their wedding was my ‘super bowl ‘ wedding to end all weddings. I was full on obsessed with this bride, from the moment we started talking it was just true love…oh back to Rosie and Joe…they were simply the BEST ! I loved how Rosie made everyone feel so comfortable and Joe was just a doll. Their wedding felt like a Kennedy wedding, I felt so privileged to be a part of this event. During their ceremony I had a moment of such joy wash over me, seeing these two take their vows in such a magnificent setting, it was spectacular. My beloved Aimee from 2Chic and The Find really outdid herself with the planning and design and our gal ‘Hatch ‘ From Bloomers nailed this one shut. It is always a pleasure to work with Classique Catering and their band, Hip Service , was fabulous. Dig her super cool Carolina Herrera Couture dress and bad ass Manolo B shoes ! And come on, we had so many stunning locations starting at the Citizen Hotel , then off to the ceremony at the Cathedral and ending at one of Sacramento treasures, The Memorial Auditorium , beauty and love galore, enjoy a glimpse :
O.K maybe not the worlds longest blog post, but a long one for sure. This was a gem of a wedding from last year, and yes I do ‘gotta bring up old stuff’ now and again. This was a last minute booking that I was thrilled to get. This couple had a marathon wedding day all planned by the one and only Aimee Wendle of 2Chic Events. Aimee is my home-slice and a gifted planner and designer.
The first part of the day was a beautiful Sikh ceremony at The Sikh Temple of Sacramento. I learned so many interesting things about the Sikh culture and truly enjoyed this unique ceremony. If it seems like I am not even mentioning this fabulous couple it is because they really value their privacy. So we will call them J&B : ). I LOVED J&B and am forever grateful they choose me to be a part of their whirlwind day. This was ceremony #1, stay tuned for ceremony # 2, a classic Jewish Ceremony at The Crocker Art Museum. So much culture, love and beauty in just a short 14 hour day : )
Please insert one MILLION thanks to my beloved Sarah Maren for coming to shoot this ceremony with me ON HER ANNIVERSARY. For this big gig, I got by with a BIG help from my friends.

So CIRUS FREAKS ! Talk about a collaboration ! So many super cool ladies worked on this shoot ! We had planned for an outdoor shoot with a very different vibe, but it rained buckets so we headed indoors. If I tell you one more time how blessed I felt to be doing something like this would you be inclined to punch me in the neck ? Sorry, I can not help myself. I have the most creative friends ! It all started with my friend Dacy McWhorter having the idea to do a vintage Circus styled shoot. It was off and running from there. Please note the list of people who made this look like this below : ) ONE MILLION THANKS TO EVERYONE INVOLVED I I love you…I honestly LOVE YOU !
