I have LITERALLY been waiting to blog about this couple for YEARS ! REALLY ! I will try not get too mushy here, but I need you to know my LOVE for this couple runs DEEP.
My first memory of them was …love in an elevator. I was heading up in the Citizen Hotel elevator,when Joaquin and Heather introduced themselves. They told me I had done a few of their friends weddings and soon enough I would be doing their wedding. Naturally I was VERY flattered. And indeed I was the lucky photographer to capture their unique love story. They were married at St. Ignatius Church and had their reception at The Sacramento Grand Ballroom. Positively fabulous food from our friends at The Supper Club, and a truly delicious dessert buffet from Ettores ( I can still remember how much we enjoyed those treats ). It was oddly an overcast day in Aug, but not to worry, we worked it out like nobodies business with some unique fun and funky photos.
I was so touched by this couples love for each other and kindness towards everyone else…I am getting a bit misty so here are the photos, talk amongst yourselves.
Yeah, note, this couple was ” sort of a big deal ” with their large amount of higher up clergy : )
FUN FACT : They are both quite the musicians, and sang to EACH OTHER during the ceremony. Not a dry eye in the house people !
So I LOVE it when my brides tell me they blog stalk me. Ali told me how addictive blogs were for brides…and now IT IS HER TURN to be on the blogs. Ali and Daniel were a joy to work with, such up-beat and lighthearted couple. Their effervescent yet easy going personalities set the tone for the whole day: relaxed and fun ! These two were ecstatic to be getting married to each other. Their ceremony was to perfect and filled with so much emotion and sheer joy. With the beautiful Lakes of the Pines behind them during their vows, they were so full of great expressions and love. Daniel was trying so very hard not to cry but I knew those tears would flow. I felt so very fortunate to be the one chosen to capture their big day. My LOVE for these two ran deep ! Here is a peak into their special special day:
I LOVE this photo of Alison ! She is just stunning on her special day.
I LOVED this moment my second shooter captured right before the ceremony.
