Every vendor Jodi and Mikey hired for their special day ADORDED THEM ! A wedding photographers dream couple, they ozzed warmth, kindness, love, goodness and FUN. I was honored to have been chosen capture their Big day. I loved all of their funky details, like peacock feathers and blue chuck’s ( which Jodi added a massive amount of glitter, everything is better with glitter right ).
My dear friend Shannon ( shanona Rider ) from FLOURISH…how do I LOVE THEE….Let me count the ways, kicked arse with their flowers. I love the way she puts her ‘mojo’ on the flowers. Stunning work as usual.
Just the perfect wedding at Lake Natomas Inn, perfect weather, the perfect D.j, Dominic ( Omen )from EXTREME and the perfect photo booth from Encore. Added bonus….getting to work with my friend Eric ( Erisa bearsa ) from ACTI-VIDEO. He ALWAYS brings charm and warmth and some great ideas when he shoots a wedding.
My favorite part of the day was the toast, Jodi’s maid of honor did this photo montage with photos of her and Jodi from their youth, HILARIOUS ! The whole crowd was cracking up like crazy.
So much fun and love, chalked full of yummine goodness :
This was Eric from ACTI-VIDEO’S idea to make her ‘the runaway bride’. Eric rules, he is my fav. videographer : )
WOW ! How BEAUTIFUL does my little Jodi look, what a beauty. That girl could model like a pro !
What is SO funny ?
My second shooters get the BEST kid shots, go Nic ( Nickle Pickle )
Not too many things I love more in life than the ‘scrunchie’ smile.
Jodi’s maid of honor had the whole crowd cracking up with her toast, she did a video montage of photos of them growing up. It was solid gold.
This gal told me she liked my blog, so pretty much if you do that you are in : )
FUN FACT : Jodi and Mikey were best friends and roomates for a long time before realizing they were meant to be man and wife
ANOTHER FUN FACT : THEY MADE A HONEYMOON BABY : )
HERE is their SLIDESHOW
Thanks for stopping by : )
Maria and Issie… just pure goodness, light and love. Maria is my dear friends Shannon and Jim from Flourish niece. Jim’s family is from El Salvador so the day was rich with cultural tradtions. They had a church ceremony and then everyone headed off to La Provence for a delish dinner under the olive tress. What a stunning view we had of the sunset. It was magical. Maria and Issie were just so very gracious and kind. Such a warm and loving couple, I absolutely ADORED them.
My treasured Shannon ( A.ka, Nonnie butter, Non-ista, Winona Ryder, Shanna banana ) shot the wedding with me as well as did all the flowers. Shannon, owner of FLOURISH is one of the coolest people you will ever meet. I could go on and on about her attributes, but I bet you just want to see the photos right :
Such a precious moment with the bride and her Grandmother.
A magic moment, Issie alone praying, just priceless.
Of course these are ALWAYS my FAVORITE moments.
O.K….YUM ! YES please I would like a slice of that !
This image was taken by none other that Shannon from Flourish, it is one of my favorite images from the day.
Fun Fact : I photographed Shannon’s aunt wedding in the 19….well a LONG time ago, My rate was $375 back in those days : ) Who would have thought we would be come friends so many years later.
photos with heart and soul
