Samantha and Joal’s wedding was such a great celebration.  And there were a few moments that have gone down in wedding history.

  1. They did a pinkie promise during their vows.  It was definitely something that was very personal to them and a reflection of the traditions they’ve created together.  So sweet.
  2. Their wedding bands were gorgeous.  I have never seen such a fancy groom’s ring.  Nice work, Samantha and Joal!
  3. Their choreographed first dance was so creative, smooth, and romantic.
  4. Ok, I’m ALWAYS a sucker for the mother/son dance, as I’ve written about many times.  But this one wins because, in the middle of the dance, Joal picked his mother up and twirled her around.  Um, son, are you reading this?  You’re only seven now, so you have plenty of time to think through your own sweet moves for our dance.  A surprise pick up won’t disappoint.  Every mom deserves a surprise pick up!  Oh my goodness, I just love the mother/son dance.  Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 91Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 90Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 47Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 48Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 49Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 50Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 51Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 52038rSaddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 53 Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 55Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 56Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 58Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 57  Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 59Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 60Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 61Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 62Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 63Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 64Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 65Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 66Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 67Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 68Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 69Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 70Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 71Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 72Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 73Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 74Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 75Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 76Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 77Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 78Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 79Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 80Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 81Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 82Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 46Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 83Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 84Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 85Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 86Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 87Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 88Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Photographer 89

Bridget and Chris were married at the elegant Temecula Creek Inn Stone House.  What stood out to me from their wedding was the pace.  No one was in a hurry, and everything felt like it was at life pace.  In other words, it didn’t seem like a day that would turn into a blur.

Also, just look at Bridget’s dress.  The more I look at it, the more I love it.  There are so many fine details that you might not notice unless you got up close to study it.  It’s really lovely.

For Devon and Jim’s wedding day, we were back at the charming Condor’s Nest Ranch.  Feels like home!  We love this place and all the people who make it amazing.

We loved photographing Devon and Jim’s wedding.  Everyone, family and friends, were so sweet and full of joy for the beautiful couple.  It’s also special to photograph military weddings.  Seeing the groom in his uniform causes you to pause and consider what it represents.  Thank you so much for all that you have done for our country!

Saddlerock Ranch has many ceremony locations, and they are all beautiful.  And this spot is just breathtaking.  Elena and Peter experienced their wedding ceremony on what is practically a cliff overlooking the vineyard and mountains.  Amazing.

Peonies are so striking and definitely one of my top five favorite flowers.  Elena and Peter’s wedding had peonies everywhere.  Their floral designer, Oak & the Owl created an amazing display.

Elena and Peter are one of those couples that you just love to watch.  First of all, they’re very sweet and obviously in love.  Also, they’re really humorous people.  You can clearly see that the people around them think the world of them.

Elena and Peter, your wedding day was gorgeous and a great representation of your relationship.  We were so happy to be a small part of it.
