My actual last wedding of the year was a few days before Christmas in Auburn, California, and it was cold and raining. I received a phone call in less than a month before Matthias and Jennifer’s wedding to capture their special day. I try and not book much in December to spend more time with family, but since it was a shorter wedding and they were really nice people, I jumped on the opportunity. We spent sometime downtown Auburn at the old historic Methodist church before and during the ceremony. After that, we photographed the bride + groom photos, and they really wanted a photo with this important airplane near the reception venue, which was the Ridge Golf Club. We only had a few minutes for a photo because of time, and it was still cold (Jennifer was wrapped in warm blanket to keep warm). Once we finished the photo, it started pouring rain, a sign that we were done Then we enjoyed a lovely reception with warm hearts and most definitely a warm venue at the Ridge. Enjoy a few images from their wedding day!
