Rainy Day Humboldt Wedding
I am over the moon to share this wedding with you! We are THRILLED to have it featured on Style Me Pretty today as well. Somer and Andy are just WONDERFUL and we love that we were a part of this stunning wedding. Everything about their big day was just so THEM. It was authentic, beautiful and despite inclement weather an absolute joy to photograph. Somer and Andy had their wedding up in Humbolt, California at Andy’s dad’s home. It was nestled into the woods and perfect for such a wonderful event. Seriously, I could go ON and ON about how wonderful everything was… but I think I’d rather show you.
Have I mentioned that Andy is one of my favorite grooms ever? He is so laid back, but still so engaged with everything. He was such fun to photograph. I could tell from Dustin’s photos of Andy and his groomsmen that they were having a great time pre-wedding.
Somer had so many delightful details! Her dress, shoes, hair piece… EVERYTHING! I loved how she put her wedding together with so much individual style. It was stunning! But even better than that, being able to be with her as she prepared for her wedding surrounded by friends who love and adore her was just splendid.
As Somer was getting ready to step out and walk down the asile, the rain began again. But it was no matter – the couple kept their wedding plans on and were married in an olive orchard that was planted on the grounds in honor of their wedding. Somer walked down the asile to “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles. That song held true, and as the couple said their vows the clouds parted and the sun shone down on them becoming husband and wife.
We felt blessed with sunlight for some beautiful photos of the bridal party and our beloved couple before the rain returned.
And seriously! How beautiful is Somer? It was so lovely to photograph her!
I loved that the house was FILLED with art! I had a little too much fun with their ring shot.
Somer and Andy has SUCH a great celebration put together for their family and friends. It was filled with delightful details with a rustic tilt. Plus, Somer and Andy made their wedding so THEM. Andy brewed homemade beers and a ginger ale to go with Whiskey – Somer’s favorite drink. They used local, organic foods and wines that were served in biodegradable cups. It was just perfect!
This was our last shot of the night, and probably one of my favorite shots of the whole event. Somer had a vision of a glowing tent in the middle of the woods for her wedding and man alive did that vision come to life.
Somer and Andy THANK YOU for having us be a part of SUCH an incredible event! We love you both, and are so grateful to have been a part of your wedding. Check out the SLIDESHOW HERE or below for even more from this spectacular wedding!
