Sacramento Wedding Photographer, Sacramento LDS Temple, Chris + Katie

“And they lived happily ever after” was the theme of this Fairy Tale wedding. Katie and Chris married this summer in Sacramento, and then had their DIY backyard wedding in Ione, California, which was full of artistic disneyland-type details and beautifully decorated lighting. I’m thinking their electricity bill sky-rocketed after the evening, but well worth every penny! After many family portraits and plenty of delicious food, this family got their groove on. Here are a few of the images that were taken at this fairy-tale wedding. By the way, I have more weddings I would love to blog, and I hope to blog at least a few of them before September lights back up. In September, I have a New York wedding, a Yosemite wedding, a southern California wedding, three other northern California weddings, and a celebrity red carpet shoot in Hollywood near the Kodak theatre to photograph. Cheers!
