The day finally arrived! After photographing this sweet couple’s engagement session at picturesque Folsom Lake in northern California last summer, I was more than excited for their wedding day. It was everything I imagined it would be and more. Whitney and Bruce have such an endearing relationship that makes everyone around them feel their joy. When I was getting to know them, I distinctly remember him saying to me, “She takes care of everyone else, so I take care of her.” I swoon over these two so much. Their relationship really is inspiring.
For their wedding, they settled on Oak Farm Vineyards, the perfect venue for this laid-back, nature-loving couple. This vineyard is specifically known for personalized service and exceptional attention to detail – they really get to know the couples they are working with, and they’re phenomenal at carrying out each couple’s unique wedding vision. Set in the beautiful natural landscape of Central Valley, I can’t imagine a more serene backdrop for a romantic outdoor ceremony.
On their wedding day, Whitney and Bruce were surrounded by love from their family and friends. It was dreamy on this perfect day! We even went out on a boat for some epic pics. They were so brave (especially Whitney in her wedding dress)! But they went right along with the adventure to make some memories together, and the photos were certainly worth it! Not everyone can say they have wedding pictures like these. Plus, it was a great way for them to get away for a bit (literally) and just enjoy their time together soaking it all in.
I’m not going to lie, I’m going to miss this couple now that their wedding has come and gone, but I know that they are off to even grander adventures together! Congratulations, Whitney and Bruce. It was truly an honor to capture your beautiful wedding day.
