Ashley and Jesse sure know how to throw one hell of a party! Maybe it’s because they are amazing. Maybe it’s because they are so freaking in love that a celebration of epic proportions was demanded by nature itself. No matter what the reason, a unbelievable night was had and these two walked away married. Their incredible event happened at The Citizen Hotel Sacramento and it was the perfect backdrop to a day of joyous celebrating. As soon as I stepped into the Governor’s Suite and saw Ashley as she finished her getting ready I knew I was going to have the best time photographing this wedding. Ashley looked stunning! She was surrounded by her besties and so ready to be Jesse’s wife. As I gathered up her details, Shannon from Flourish arrived with her bouquet. I LOVE capturing the moment a bride sees the flowers Shannon has created for her. They are always blown away by how pretty everything turned out. I love seeing the joy on their faces! Ashley was no exception. Once we got Ashley into her dress it was off for the happy couple’s first look. And OH what a first look it was. Tears and smiles and laughter and sooo much love. I am always filled with gratitude when I get to be part of moments like that. Just another reason my job rocks! One of the biggest reasons this wedding was the bee’s knees was because it was expertly planned and designed by my favorite Sacramento wedding planner, Kate Whelan Events. Kate did an amazing job making everything perfect. I loved the light backdrop for the ceremony. It made the space look spectacular and was super fun to make pictures with. Everything was styled to perfection – per the usual with Kate. Ashley and Jesse had one heck of an amazing wedding. I loved making photos with them and their top notch vendor team.
