Ryan + Arielle are one of those couples you just look at and know they are meant to be together. Their chemistry, how he looks at her and how she fits right into him is just magical.
They were engaged overlooking the area that they met – San Francisco. We also enjoyed our lovely engagement session there together when I was pretty much 37 weeks pregnant. I tell you, I am DEDICATED to my bride and grooms!
Fast forward to September. Their details were immaculately put together. The venue was amazing. The food was perfect. Everything was organized to a T and the weather couldn’t have been better. The vineyard was gorgeous and green still and the light was golden.
My favorite memories from this wedding was pretty much everything…It was a Sacramento grand tour! I had suggested let’s do first looks on the balcony – and they were allllll about that! They even reserved the penthouse suite to do just that! We were able to capture some timeless prep photos in the amazing hotel rooms there at the Citizen Hotel.
Then, we cruised on over to the Capitol Building where we did photos on the outside and inside. We had a special permit to shoot inside without any hassles.
I just adored their bridal party. They were all so sweet and cooperative! And you could see Ryan gently reassuring Arielle when things were a little stressful that everything was going to be perfect.
The reception was truly a party at Wilson Vineyards. Seriously. These were all friends and family that really deeply loved this couple and it showed. Love and fun times twenty.
