Time flies when a person neglects their beloved blog. Sorry, but now I am done with my bountiful fall of 2013 and have an abundance of wedding eye candy to tide you over for until spring of 2014. MAN ALIVE do I love this couple ! They were delightful in every way. Seriously , Lyndsey and Todd’s wedding touched my soul. About a year ago, she was the bridesmaid at another wedding and on that day she told me that when it was her turn I was her gal. Their wedding at Lake Natomas Inn had such an ease to it, everything was about as good as it gets. One of the best parts about this wedding was the group of friends Lyndsey and Todd had supporting them, just the coolest group of folks ever. And, it does not hurt that they keep referring me so I get to see them again and again. YAY ME !
I happen to personally LOVE her vendors, Shannon with Flourish designs, Rebecca and Hector with Sweet Cakes by Rebecca and Tom Fretwell with Fretty’s Limo and D.J service, they are all my peeps and did the best job ever !
Alas, a girl is blogging and then some:

Sarah and Jack were such a class act ! Everything about this couple was lovely. So sincere and kind and their families were just amazing. I was so honored to be their wedding photographer at our very own photographers dream location, the Crocker Art Museum. Some of my favorite people helped to make the day perfect including one of my all time favorite make-up artists Shana Beals Make-up Artistry . Also in the mix, the talented and creative Vicki from Bella Blooms, super fun Tom Fretwell from Fretty’s D.j and culinary delights from The Supper club. Yes I could gush for a few more lines, but again I know you are not checking out my blog to languish in my literary talents.
I love her soft make-up from my pal Shana Beals.
WOW, what a beautiful place for a ceremony right. Just stunning.
SUCH CUTE DETAILS ! Amie and Johnny had such great style for their wedding at The Citizen Hotel. They had such great everything really, I LOVED their cute happy bridal party, SWEET CAKE and FUN reception. In addition to being incredibly beautiful, our Amie is also brainy, she just got her doctorate ! And Johnny was also deep and soulful as well as super cute and a great subject. Just a slam dunk all the way. I especially loved working with Tom Fretwell, he has such a unique way of making a party fun. And he lighting kicked butt. Man alive could I go on and on and on about how cool this couple was and how much I simply adored their wedding but as usual, me thinks you would love it if I shut up and showed you the $$$ ( aka photos )
Johnny was such a good subject right ? Move over Megan Fox !
Don’t you just love her colors and bridesmaid dresses ? So cute !
Deeply in love with this SWEET cake by…wait for it….SWEET CAKES BY REBECCA. We are all a tiny bit obsessed with Rebecca and her artistic cake making abilities.
Such cute details !
I thought it was SO funny when I was having this groomsman do a photo with one of their lollipops and I heard someone say ‘ I think the photographer likes him’. He was adorable that is for sure.
I heart this photo !
The Big Bang did an exceptional job on her flowers.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the yellow up-lighting ! Great job Tom Fretwell !
DEEPLY in love with this photo !

GUNS AND ROSES, That is my nickname for Wine and Roses, the perfect place for Alissa and Michael to have their PERFECT WEDDING. I am so enamored by this couple, they are ideal in every way. Alissa was so beautiful on her wedding day, she has to be one of the coolest gals on earth ! Both so genuine and thoughtful, everyone LOVED them ! It was so great to have such awesome vendors like Tom Fretwell of Frettys D.J and Limo Service and David Bonetti from Bonetti Videography capturing day on video. LIBBY SIINO did and excellent job with the coordination, she sure made my job easier !The only nutty part was the rain was looming at bit. When it did rain for a few minutes and we were getting wet, I was so impressed by the way Alissa just laughed it off. Here are some of my favorite photos from their big day:
This is kind of our thing, for some reason I am always wanting to put a ring in either Alissa or Michael’s mouth ?
This girl could strike a POSE !
LOVE LOVE LOVE !
This photo made my heart skip a beat : )
In this kids defense, the officiant was a bit long winded : )
YAYYYYY, THE SUN CAME OUT !
Please accept my apologies for posting this photo.
I love the lush gardens all around Wine and Roses, truly one of the best venues.
FUN FACT : This couple has been together since High School, during the toast I loved how Alissa said ‘ we never gave up on each other ‘.
