Apple Hill Wedding
Oh Lisa and Geoff… seriously, my heart pitter patters at the very mention of their names. I can’t express the love I have, the joy their wedding has brought me or the joy their friendship has brought. Photographing photographers can be crazy stressful… I mean… they KNOW if you messed up! But these two made everything so effortless, and so freaking wonderful! There was just SO MUCH cool stuff to photograph. Lisa was the DIY queen! She even made her own dress. I mean, how can you not love that?
Of course, Dustin had a great time with the boys. Geoff has a great group of highly entertaining friends. They worked it out for the camera like only a photographers friends can.
So, Lisa and Geoff got married at THE COOLEST place ever! High Hill Ranch at Apple Hill in Placerville. It was INCREDIBLE! Being able to shoot in the orchards, and around the pond, and with all the beautiful trees! Seriously perfection. Lisa and Geoff decided to have a first look because, hello! They are photographers! That is what they do! And I’m so glad they did. It turned out amazing.
AND there were giant balloons! GIANT BALLOONS! Amazing.
Oh! And REALLY hot shoes.
Then it was time to get these two married. And, yeah… it was also time for me to weep like a baby. If you’re out there planning your wedding and you think having a first look will take the emotion out of your walk down the aisle, I present this next image to you as proof that it will not. (Also, I started crying the second I clicked the shutter for this shot.)
Yes, Geoff just won the SMP Groom of 2009 award for that. Sorry fellas. And Dustin totally wins second shooter of the year for this next shot… it’s a new favorite of mine.
Once these two were man and wife it was time for some rockin’ group shots and a few more couple shots too before it was time to party. All I can say is fake mustaches and jumping bridal parties make me very happy.
Since Lisa and Geoff are co-capitins of the SS Awesome their reception details didn’t dissapoint either. Caramel Apple place cards, gameboard table names with the game on the table… YES PLEASE! Cotton Candy was a pretty hot idea too. And, let’s be honest, we ALL know how I feel about cupcakes.
Then it was time to celebrate all of this love that was floating around. Lisa and Geoff’s family and friends did an incredible job celebrating them and their love. Again, I can’t express how totally blessed we felt to be there! It was rad!
