This Northern California Wedding with Ryan and Natalie was the sweetest day!
Natalie started the day getting ready with her bridesmaids. Natalie and Ryan wrote letters to each other to read before the day started which was so sweet and one of my favorite moments of the morning! The girls popped champagne and changed into their blue bridesmaid dresses; which is always a classic. Once everyone was ready, we hopped in the limo and headed to St. Roberts Church in Sacramento for the ceremony.
Ceremony and Wedding Reception at Bella Vista Farms
The ceremony at this Northern California wedding was held at the Catholic church and it was so beautiful. The Mariachi band playing as the guests arrived was so much fun. After the ceremony, we shot some fun bridesmaids and groomsmen photos outside the reception space!
The reception was held at Bella Vista Farms in Dixon, CA. It was such a unique wedding reception space with the barn-style dance hall and open vineyards nearby. As the sun was setting we snuck away to the vineyards and shot some bride and groom portraits. There were endless places for photos because it was so beautiful everywhere! They kept the decor simple and elegant with white florals and classic table settings. The night ended on the dance floor with all their family and friends. Everyone was so joyful and you could feel the love in the air.
It was the perfect northern California wedding day celebrating Natalie and Ryan!
Ryan + Natalie
I absolutely loved working with the bride and groom and shooting their Northern California Wedding! Ryan is best friends with my brother-in-law so we’ve been friends for a long long time. I’ve watched him grow from middle school to graduating college to documenting his wedding. It was such a special day + Natalie is the perfect match for him. They were a blast to hang with all day. They’re now expecting their first baby and I’m so excited for this next chapter in their lives!
