Allison & Kevin | Married

Allison and Kevin’s fairy tale wedding was held at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City, California. Sweet Allison was such a gorgeous bride and the two of them were so fun and easy to work with. Allison even went out of her way to buy me my own gluten-free cake so that I could have a sweet treat when all the wedding guests were served dessert. How amazing is that!?

Kevin’s aunt did all the stunning florals and you guys, you HAVE to scroll all the way through to check them out. Everything from the bouquets to the fireplace mantle arrangement are just breathtaking. This wedding couldn’t have been made possible without their team of amazing vendors including:

Oh, Canada

Jasper > Maligne Lake > Banff > Lake Louise > Lake Minnewanka > Two Jack Lake > Calgary

(and many stops in between)

We rose for two sunsets, caught one sunrise, slept in the car, sang to the radio, soaked in a hot spring, ate gluten-free maple cookies, and took in all the beauty that is the Rockies in Canada.

Photos are a mix of mine and Craig’s.

Enjoy!

Raedawn & George | Married

A Las Vegas weekend turned “Happily Ever After”; Raedawn and George met and feel in love in one of the least likely places. Currently, they live in LA, but opted to hold their wedding in Raedawn’s hometown of Sacramento, California. These two love birds had a traditional Catholic mass at St. Mary’s Church in East Sacramento then danced the night away at their beautiful reception at the Firehouse in Old Sacramento.

Ethereal Bridal at Studio 817

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT EVERYONE! I am now offering Studio Boudoir Sessions to my former and existing wedding clients. After I spending some time dabbling in family studio photography, I realized where my true passion lies - it's in finding and sharing beauty in this world. Personally, I don't think there's anything more beautiful than a woman's body, no matter what shape, size, color, or type it is. So for that reason, I decided to try my hand at a high-end, mega sexy, totally tasteful, gorgeous studio boudoir and I AM IN LOVE! Take a look at this test session with this beauty. We had a blast and she totally killed it!

It was so fun I decided this is something I want to offer to all my brides. Info about pricing can be found here. (For safety, these sessions are only open to former and existing wedding and portrait clients.)

Enjoy!

Janice & Paul | Married

Never have I met two people with the biggest hearts. All while planning for their wedding and closing on a house, these two dedicated their spare time to starting a t-shirt company to raise money for the people affected by the hurricane in Puerto Rico. Janice, a doctor back in Rhode Island, spent many weekends flying down to PR to provide medical care and to bring food, water, and basic supplies. 

Their wedding was held in a beautiful botanical garden and green house in William Rogers Park in Rhode Island. Here's the star team who made it all happen:

Wedding Planning and Design: Arlene Ayala from Cashmere Eventi

Photographer: Lauren Alisse Photography

Ashlee & Andrew | Married

Adorned with gorgeous shades of lilac and lavender, guests were treated to a mouth-watering meal under a large rustic barn in Amador Country. Ashlee and Andrew got ready at the Sutter Hotel just 20 minutes down the road. It was extra special because their entire wedding party and family also stayed in the hotel, so even though we had to play a little game of "make sure Andrew doesn't come out of his room as Ashlee walks down the hall", it was fun to see all their cousins, friends, and wedding party racing around the hallways of the hotel. We made it to the ceremony, where A&A said their "I do's" under an arbor the groom made himself! As the sun set over the lush green vineyard, guests made their way to the dance floor and oh boy, did this crew know how to boogie. Even though temperatures hit triple digits on the day of A&A's nuptials, nothing stopped their tribe from celebrating in the most epic way.

Ashlee & Andrew | Engaged

Ashlee and Andrew are getting married at Amador Cellars at the end of June. This year will mark 14 years of them together as a couple! They met 13 years ago on a house-boating trip with mutual friends and it's been a wonderful journey ever since. In fact, A&A just bought a house together and are doing remodels (amidst wedding planning - yikes!) to make the house their home. 

Ashlee's story of their proposal:

The proposal took place on my Spring break at our favorite place along the coast, Fort Bragg. This has been a place we have visited yearly. As we were driving my fiancé told me that we should pull over and walk out to the cliffs edge to see the ocean (something we often do). We proceeded to pull over and get out of the truck. He put the leash on our dog and we began to walk out to the cliffs edge. Once we reached the cliffs edge he asked me to hold the dog’s leash. I continued to take in the gorgeous view surrounding us when I felt him grab both of my hands. Then he got down on one knee and I knew what was coming next. I was so ecstatic that during his speech I just yelled out “Yes” and then he forgot what else he was going to say. With my hands shaking, he placed the ring on my finger and stood up to kiss me. We both took a few minutes to take in the moment and then I proceeded to contact everyone I could possibly think of to share our exciting news (as this was something everyone else had been waiting to happen for awhile). 

I can't for A&A's wedding in just about a month! Enjoy these rustic, romantic engagement photos.
