Drakeford Wedding at Camp Bauer

Jeremy and Rene’ were actually neighbors in the small town of Scotia. A friend suggested that Rene try a dating site. She saw that a guy on the dating site lived in Scotia. She told him," “ I live in Scotia too. What street do you live on?” He answered, “Main Street.” Rene responded with" “I used to live on Main St." . He said, "Oh really? Where? " She answered "Across from the fish hatchery". He responded with "Rene' ?" A few months later, they decided to meet for drinks and have been together ever since.

Jeremy proposed on Christmas. Traditionally they do stockings first, but that particular year Jeremy wanted to do them last. When Rene’ pulled the ring box out of the stocking, Jeremy told her to read the tag. It said to “My fiance' “ The sentiment went right over her head. When she unwrapped it, he got down on his knee & the rest is history.

This beautiful couple loves to explore Humboldt County by fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, going on bike rides, and spending time with their two boys. No matter what they do together, they don't have to talk to connect. He is selfless, a good dad, and would do anything for his family. Rene still gets butterflies eleven years later. They are puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly.

I was blessed to capture both their engagement and their Camp Bauer wedding in Korbel (Blue Lake) California. They got ready at the Blue Lake Casino and were blessed with abundant sunshine for their picture perfect fall wedding. : )

Meras Romantic Rosina Vineyards Wedding

It's Wedding Wednesday, and on today's blog I am featuring the gorgeous Meras wedding at Rosina Vineyards. Manny and Kelsey are two of the kindest, most down to earth and laid back people you will ever meet. I sometimes get a little nervous before shooting weddings, but with them I knew there would not be the usual stress of a wedding day. Everything unfolded perfectly. I have been learning in my life to just let go and let it unfold how it is supposed to and their wedding was a perfect reminder. You can stress all you want, but things are going to turn out the way they are going to, no matter how much time you spend ruminating on every little detail. So you might as well relax and enjoy the ride, and I enjoyed every minute of this beautiful wedding. Thank you Manny and Kelsey for asking me to capture your wedding! : )
