Jacqueline and Jacob dreamt about getting married at Jacqueline’s fathers’ property in Sutter, CA. The 40 acre property featured rolling hills, oak trees and a stunning view. The couple knew this would be a perfect place for their Outdoor Wedding. But there was a catch - the location needed A LOT of work to host a wedding there. The couple started planning their wedding in 2019 leaving plenty of time to work out the details for their wedding this year. That was until COVID hit and many things around the world came to a standstill. In choosing to host their wedding at the father of the bride’s backyard, Jacob began his work. Even though the world stood still, Jacob slowly continued to improve the backyard area to get it ready for the big day in October. Bringing in heavy machinery to flatten groundwork and gravel to cover the road way, Jacob worked tirelessly all the way up till the day before the wedding. As a woodworker, he even built all of the wood aspects of the wedding, including the wooden stage and their reception table. On October 10, 2020, their vision became a reality. Under a large oak tree, surrounded by their family and friends, the couple exchanged their emotional wedding vows and said “I do.” This was the part of the wedding that the bride and groom looked forward to the most and it was clear that they were 100% in this forever. You could feel the connection and love they have for each other during those vows. By the strength of their love and commitment, Jacob and Jacqueline were finally husband and wife. For the creative photoshoot, we took a trip up a bumpy road in the back of a pickup truck (holding on for our deal life) to the top of the mountain overlooking the whole valley for a gorgeous view of the sunset. The scene was breathtaking and the shots that we captured of the couple were equally as stunning. The reception was held under oak trees with hanging string lights above the guests. It was...

In the midst of a pandemic, quarantine, and even a wildfire, this bride and groom were finally able to tie the knot at a beautiful Airbnb in Grass Valley, California. Overlooking the Lake of the Pines and the Sierras, this estate was the perfect location for a private, outdoor wedding celebrating the start of a new adventure. Chemistry- the place where it all started and the catalyst for their relationship. Vlad and Natalie briefly met in church but really got to know each other when taking a Chemistry class at Sierra College. Though Vlad did not end up getting into the class, their friendship continued well throughout their college experience. They got to know each other as friends for about a year and then dated for two until he popped the question March of this year. 2020 was an interesting year for the wedding industry as well as for many engaged couples. Though the start to their forever did not go as planned due to COVID-19, their wedding day turned out even better than imagined. After two venue changes, a date change, and even the start of a wildfire, Vlad and Natalie managed to re-plan their wedding in a matter of a month. This outdoor venue actually served as a three day stay for the bride and groom, giving the bridal party and the family plenty of time to enjoy the luxuries provided by this Airbnb. With a stunning infinity pool and a beautiful view overlooking the smoky hills of the Sierras, the estate offered so much amazing scenery for the ceremony, reception, and creative shoot. If there was one word to describe this wedding, it would be emotional. Everything from the gift exchanges, to the walk down the aisle, to the vows brought tears to the eyes of everyone around. It was especially exciting capturing the reaction of the groom’s gift to the bride on the morning of the wedding. Natalie, being a huge cat lover, always told Vlad that she wanted to get a cat after they were married. Little did she know she would getting one that...
