A BACKYARD WEDDING
Regina and Caleb have a family home in the Tahoe area. This home was newly renovated and the backyard turned into wedding venue. The ceremony was in the backyard. Guests were directed to move to the front of the house after the ceremony for cocktails. During that time, staff moved all of the dinner tables in place and the backyard was transformed from a ceremony venue to a reception and dance venue. After completion of the transformation, guests were invited back to the garden and Regina and Caleb were welcomed by a grand entrance and applause. A lot of friends and family had traveled from across the globe to be with them and had a lot of kind words to share with the couple. It was a perfect day in a perfect place!
A WEDDING IN THE WOODS
Lora and Chalo decided to have their wedding at her father’s family home in Tahoe. The setting was magical! A little creek behind the ceremony site, the tall trees and everything was so green! Lora wanted to include a lot of details. From a lounge area, to fun signage, fun displays and beautiful floral accents, this wedding looked like a wedding in the woods! As guests arrived, they were able to play some corn hole, have a beverage and then enjoy a ceremony at noon. Cocktails and heavy appetizers followed. This intimate wedding was full of supportive toasts and happy family and friends. The most amazing dessert bar topped off the night!
A LIBRARY WEDDING
Christie and Brad met in high school, then lost track of each other but met again through social media! They love reading, going to church and their cats. All of these elements were incorporated in their wedding and made this wedding day experience so personal! Bookmarks, edible cats on the cake, library cards as escort cards and books galore as centerpieces. So, of course this wedding had to be at the Library Galleria in Sacramento! High school sweethearts after all! It was so special to meet these two and see how in tune they are with everything they do, they know each other inside out! What an amazing day!
A DISNEY WEDDING
Nirmeth and Karan love Disneyland, they are romantically in love, her favorite color is purple and this was reflected in their wedding. Disney carriages were centerpieces filled with beautiful purple flowers, purple / lavender linens, a Disney cake, the last rose on the sweet heart table, the fog during their first dance and more. Punjabi music and bhangra dancers reflected their culture.
A HOLLYWOOD WEDDING
Alyssa and Scott had to postpone their wedding because they were surprised by a little baby boy being on his way. So instead of a fall wedding, they had a spring wedding but nevertheless it was an amazing day! This Hollywood themed Wedding had everything you can think of and Haggin Oaks’ Pavillion was transformed into a fantastic black and white ballroom. The guests were spoiled with a cigar bar, flip book booth, popcorn bar and fantastic movie posters featuring the bride and groom. See for yourself! Lovely photos captured by the amazing Xsight team, ceremony music by the Sacramento Quartet and evening entertainment by Extreme Productions.
IT'S ALL ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT WEDDING
Jen and Nelson have so much fun together. This couple has been together for over 10 years and finally decided to tie the knot. But, they weren’t just going to tie the knot just like that, they added so much personality to their wedding, it was incredible! After attending the traditional Filipino Ceremony in downtown Sacramento, all guests were invited to Beatnik Studios for the reception. As soon as the guests arrived, they found their name card and a puzzle piece to sign. Each guest glued a puzzle piece to a canvas. After completion of the puzzle, you could discover a super fun picture of Jen and Nels, what a wonderful mosaic to keep!! The bride and groom also gave copies of their favorite books away, had a game table set up for all of the children, advice booklets to fill out and photo booth props and glow sticks to wear all night long. Instead of renting your regular photo booth, there was a photo booth bus! And instead of your regular DJ, there was a DJ and an MC who danced with the crowd, announced the most amazing “Groomsmen Performance Sing along and Dance” as well as mastered the best flash mob I have seen at a wedding. There were breakdancers on the floor, kids jumping around, all after having a delicious meal by Crisp Catering and some great dessert by Gunther’s ice cream.. Please check out the cutest “first look” of these two lovebirds!
A PLAYFUL WEDDING
A PLAYFUL WEDDING
Elin and Cody are full of joy, you can see it in their eyes how much they love each other. Their wedding reflected this romantic and playful connection in every way. Large paper flowers were created for a ceremony backdrop, paper garlands accented walkways and entrances, fresh eucalyptus and candles in sand decorated the tables, homemade cookies were offered for dessert. The amazing photos were taken by Allison Yin Photography, the music that kept the crowd dancing all night was provided by All Ears DJ and the personal flowers were put together by no other than Monica Lynn. Park Winters was the venue for the ceremony and reception.
Take a look for yourself!
PRINCESS FOR A DAY WEDDING
Yulia and Stan got married at the gorgeous Park Winters. It was a beautiful fall day, just the right temperature and amazing fall colors all around, finishing off the icing on the overall autumn theme. Yulia and Stan combined Russian traditions with American traditions. They played lots of games to entertain the guests, ate delicious food family style provided by the amazing catering service of Citrus Plaza Catering and devoured home made cake at the end. The amazing photos were provided by Liz Zimbelman Photography. Enjoy while you take a journey around this memorable day!
A COLLECTIBLES WEDDING
Windy and Cameron spent endless weekends shopping for wedding accessories. From old binoculars, to typewriters, to silver containers, old books and antique china, they bought everything they could get
their hands on to decorate their beautiful wedding day. Amy and Dustin with Drozian Photoworks captured every single detail and believe me, there were quite a few!!! Arden Hills Resort was the place to be for the ceremony and reception. These guys are pros and just know how to set up and make great food. Speaking of food.. if you expected a traditional wedding cake from Windy and Cameron, you were wrong! Guess what? They had a giant cinnamon roll instead and it had 2 tiers! Freeport Bakery did an amazing job with this!
A GRAND AFFAIR WEDDING
Brittney and Frankie chose to get married at the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove. They came all the way out here from Oakland, CA. Details and inspirations came from their grandparents, plenty of shopping sprees at antique markets and lots of time on pinterest. Aunt Gail prepared all of the amazing flowers and Dogwood Party Rentals provided all of the other decor that you will find in the pictures below. From start to finish, this wedding was full of love. Brittney and Frankie had the kindest vows and Frankie even rapped to Brittney! Ballroom dancing and more made this day fantastic!
A VINTAGE WEDDING
Where do I begin with this lovely couple? Yvette and Austin.. I first met Ivette and her mother and we had a blast together. I was so excited when I got the call and Yvette hired me as her wedding planner. Her wedding was at the Empire Mine State Park. We had no idea that the weather was going to turn us. Before the ceremony started, the State Park personnel indicated that we may need to close down this event incase of thunderstorms.. Oh no, really? Gray clouds came rolling in and there, there were the rain drops.. BUT the rain passed and the wedding happened anyway! Yay! All of the vintage furniture you see, are actually Yvette's! She had them delivered from her house!
The reception was originally set up on the concrete platform but we had moved all of the tables downstairs were it was a little bit more dry. It turned out to be really nice and cozy down there and we only kept dancing and cake upstairs. Take a look.
AN INDIAN WEDDING
Pushpinder and Eric originally had planned to get married at the Flower Farm in Loomis. Pushpinder really liked the idea of having a barn wedding and utilizing all of the cute decor that has been so trendy for so long. After another walk through and discussing the size of her wedding, we came to the conclusion that the Flower Farm was going to be too small, so we needed a new venue. We decided on the Masonic Temple in Sacramento. We had flexibility in size and added some ballroom charm to the ambience and we ended up moving the date to October instead of having a summer wedding in August. Over the next few months we put together the look of the wedding, added all of the necessary vendors and created a wedding that is not to be forgotten!
