Congratulations to Lars and Lauren on their wedding and the beginning of their marriage together.  We are blessed to have been invited to photograph this wonderful couple at the Catta Verdera Country Club.  And even though it was a hot day, Lars and Lauren allowed us plenty of time to photograph them freely, which kept us distracted from the sweat pouring down our backs. And to top it off, the sunset was just perfect for our location of choice, which allowed us to capture some natural images on a grassy hillside where trees surrounded us. Lars and Lauren’s wedding was smaller and intimate, which we always love, and everyone was so friendly and welcoming.  And while it was a good story we heard that Lars and Lauren met in a local gym, it’s even a better story that they ended up working out together in marriage.  Here are a few highlights from the day.

Venticello Wedding, Murphys California.

In the heart of the California Gold Country, Brian and Meredith shared vows overlooking the foothills of the Sierra Nevada from the top of a hill.  They were so fun and relaxed and easy to photograph.  I had photographed this charming wedding last year, and wanted to promote this venue as a beautiful location, something like a Tuscany Villa with picturesque landscapes, not to mention the romantic La Villetta room.  This was the first time I had photographed here, but with the amazing property, and a perfect couple, I wanted to post some images from their wedding. ( By the way, I received an email from them sharing they just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl).  Congratulations to Brian and Meredith.
