Point Cabrillo Lighthouse

Out of the Mendocino wedding venues in the area, Heather and Bill chose the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse for their destination wedding. They love lighthouses and specifically this beautiful one located near Fort Bragg, California where they share history together. They invited me to capture their coastal wedding together with friends and family. I arrived early and saw that fog was covering the area, including the light house museum, which I hoped would stay. The waves were crashing against the shore.

For the Point Cabrillo Light House, you cannot drive down to it. So guests must park in the upper parking lot and walk down the trail that leads to ceremony location. Heather and Bill arrived and I was ready to rock and roll. The ceremony started and it was go time. They even brought their beloved dogs. Even though the fog became more dense, it made the images that much better and unique.

The Reception and Coastal Sunset Photos

After the ceremony and family photos concluded, we drove over to the reception location in Fort Bragg, called The North Coast Brewing Company. Heather and Bill were excited to have everyone gather at one of their favorite brewing restaurants for great beer and food. After a bite and speeches, we returned back to the Point Cabrillo lighthouse for sunset photos and entrance into the museum’s top floor of the lighthouse. The fog departed, the sun shined, and the lighthouse was in its glory for our photo time together.

Heather and Bill were very kind and hospitable people from out of state. I was blessed to document their special day together. Congratulations to them and their families. Here are some wedding photos from their day on the California coast.

The Club at Arrow Creek Wedding | Reno Tahoe, Nevada

The Club at Arrow Creek Wedding Venue
Reno Tahoe Nevada

I’m a wedding photographer who recently visited The Club at Arrow Creek wedding venue for my couples. Photographing weddings all around northern California and Nevada allows me to see many new wedding venues. I was given a tour by the director of Sales, Andy Bomberger and was impressed by the property. For the short time I was there, I captured a few images of the property to give you an idea and potential. I’m adding a few extra wedding images I feel would do well at this property.

Our all inclusive venues paired with elevated cuisine options will impress your guests and create moments that will not be forgotten.

This private golf club that offers high class wedding ceremonies and receptions in between Tahoe and Reno. While surrounded by the sierra mountains and the City of Reno, The Club at Arrow Creek destination is a hidden gem. They have a large outdoor tent and pavilion, as well as indoor space to seat over 250 guests. The property is always being mowed and cleaned. While I was there, the lawn was being mowed, and it appeared already groomed enough.

They also have a 36-hole golf course, top-of-the-line chefs, and many other features. They invested much money into this property and it definitely shows.



If you’re interested in booking the Arrow Creek venue and are in need of a seasoned pro photographer who will get the job done artistically and professionally, please contact me here.
