Jessica and P.J called me in 2010 to shoot their 2012 wedding, it was one of those love at first phone call situations. Not only do I adore them but feel like I am part of their families at this point. One would be hard pressed to find a greater group of people than Jessica and P.j’s families. I positively adore these folks.
Jessica is a ‘bling’ kinda gal so the phrase ” Ling Ling you forgot your bling bling ” was used throughout the day. Their Citizen Hotel wedding was a stunner with Kate Miller events, Flourish , Extreme Productions and Shana Beals making this wedding just so very beautiful with design, flowers, lighting and the bride’s make-up. I LOVE this venue and every one of these vendors ! Everything about this wedding was impressive ! Oh how Mama LIKED ! And yes, this is yet another very long blog post as I was so in love with this couple and this wedding.
I love the way this photos shows off Shana Beals mad make-up skills with this dramatic make-up look. Well done my friend, I am your biggest fan !
Beautiful flower design by my beloved Shannon from Flourish, so very talented that Shannon a.k.a ‘ No-No ‘ !
One single tear is like a pot of gold for me, love this shot ! I love this photo, oh yes I do !
Sorry P.J : )
Stunning right, well done team !
‘Keepin’ it real’ quickly became the nick name we gave our beloved Ashley Sondreal. Omg, she and Ryan had possibly the most adorable wedding known to man kind !
She had Shannon from Flourish and Fancy Pants Weddings AND the uber talented Kate Miller Events. Together they created Magic with the decor. And if that was not enough… My treasured Rachelle shot the wedding with me. Words can not express how much I love Rachelle, she is one of my dearest and most loved friends.
So much goodness involved for this special day !
The wedding was held at Ryan’s parents backyard in Grass Valley which was the perfect location. I LOVED the red barn and their super cute retro baseball theme. That Kate Miller….she is just the BEST !
I feel in love with Ashley from reading her facebook posts, she has the most delishious dark wit. And Ryan is a gem, one of the coolest people you will ever meet. Add their fun and happy bridal party made the wedding was a HUGE SUCCESS :
One of the MANY amazing shots by Rachelle
You see the benefits of seeing each other before, you are able to do cool random things like this funky guitar shop. I was over the moon with these shots
I absolutely LOVE this photo
See how captivating all of their little details were, again, go Kate Miller !
Miss Ashley collected these old coke bottles and did many ‘d.i.y’ projects to make the day special.
How much do you LOVE the barn in the background.
Oh how I LOVE the string light !

Her STUNNING make-up was done by the STUNNING LEI LANI, great job as you can see ! They had cupcakes from a Icing on the cupcake…..mmmmmm good !
FUN FACT : I actually went to an on-line thesaurus to find another way to say ‘ADORABLE’ to describe this wedding.
