I’m so incredibly excited to share this wedding as not only are Stephanie and Sam very special on their own; but, their entire family is also incredibly near and dear to my heart. When Stephanie’s mother Anita contact me about her daughter’s wedding I was so excited for the whole family! I had the opportunity to capture Stephanie’s brother’s wedding to his beautiful bride Kindra several years ago. And the thought of capturing this growing family again made my heart melt. I’ve really loved getting to know them better over the years.
Documenting their day was an absolute pleasure. The raw emotion and unbridled love that flowed so openly between these two beautiful souls filled not only every inch of of the space they occupied together, but also the hearts of everyone in attendance at the wedding. Plus they had their sweet baby boy with them to witness his parent’s marriage. It was perfect in every way.
They held their Elk Grove private estate wedding at a friend of the family’s house. The estate and grounds were absolutely stunning, As soon as I stepped foot on the property, I felt as though I was entering a nature reserve, filled to the brim with Stephanie and Sam’s supportive friends and family. Everything on this day was beautiful to the max. From the bride and her gown, to the idyllic location and delicious food. The most beautiful thing though, was the palpable love between this newly bonded man, wife, child, and family. It was the perfect start to their happily ever after.
