No better way to celebrate three decades of life. There is so much to appreciate and much to look forward to in this 30th year of life.

Centerville Estates Wedding Photos - Dakota & Catherine

These two choose Centerville Estates. It’s a wedding venue tucked up past the covered bridge that runs parallel to Butte Creek. Looking around it’s hard to believe you are just 20 minutes outside of Chico. The grounds are stunning, lush green vines & succulents meet cobble stone, all while nestled right next to the creek.

Just wanted to take a moment to appreciate the ivory, browns and greens in this pallet.

Catherine’s sister and maid or honor made all the floral pieces for Catherine & Dakota’s day! Personally I love DIY touches, and 100% appreciate someone who can do this.

Kendall & Griffin’s Boho Wedding

This wedding was located Griffin’s Family Vineyard in Sunol Ca. I’m so excited to share some highlights from this special day. These two are so incredibly genuine, anyone who was at this ceremony knows these two souls are a perfect match. Kendall’s Father & Brother built the stunning arches pictured in the first photo, Kendall said it best, “The hex arches my brother and dad built felt like a portal into my perfect world where love bursts at the seams”

Michelle & Mike’s River House Wedding

Michelle & Mikes wedding by the river was magical. These two met at UC Davis, just like the brides parents did! They share the same passion for science and nature and this location couldn’t have been a more perfect representation of them. Michelles family turned their home into a stunning venue to celebrate this new chapter in Michelle & Mikes life. It was a such a pleasure capturing their connection. It was painfully hard to choose my favorites but this blog has a cap (thank goodness!) Enjoy!
