Days before Rosie and Everardo wedding day, we had a few smoky haze in the sky. If you didn’t know, California during the hot summer days usually mean fire season. Magically enough, on the day of their wedding everything cleared up! They had a beautiful wedding at Hanford Ranch Winery and we can’t wait to tell you more about it.
The day started with amazing details and we couldn’t help ourselves but to share it all. Rosie was very thoughtful of every little detail and how it told her wedding story. From the details on the bottom of her heels that said “me too” to the perfume she wore. Details didn’t just stop at our bride. Everardo didn’t miss a beat on details for his groomsmen. He gifted all his guys special boxes during his getting ready which really made us feel all the love with his groomsmen’s excitement!
Every part of their timeline had a significance to both Rosie and Everardo. Such as a dove send off after their ceremony as a surprise for Everardo. Being the loving kind souls that they are, they wanted to include two people who attended from heaven. We visited Rosie’s father and Everardo’s cousin at their memorial before heading to the reception. Rosie had a heartfelt special father daughter dance with her father’s portrait. Everything was sentimental, intimate and personable to them.
We love when couples do things their way and we help them create a wedding day timeline that reflects who they truly are.
My favorite thing about capturing their wedding day was all the new things we got to experience with them!
The most special thing for me as their Wedding Photographer is the friendship we built along the way. The last few months getting to know these two meant a lot to us both. We love and value this new friendships and can’t wait to catch up with you two over dinner! We love you both so much and so very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of their day!
