After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

Olympia’s Valley Estate Wedding ~ Petaluma, Ca Wedding Photographer

It is always a dream come true photographing weddings at Olympia’s Valley Estate!  The property is filled with little treasures including the antique chic decor in the home, an old wooden boat house across from a large pond, and of course the huge barn with crystal bling hanging from its beams.  This wedding was filled with wonderful touches.  I loved the bride’s flower crown and gorgeous bouquet! She and her groom had an entourage of flower girls and ring bearers that were too cute for words!  The boys looked so dapper in their vests and converse sneakers and the girls looked like garden fairies in their beautiful sage dresses and flower crowns!  After a ceremony that included a sing along to “You Can Count On Me” by Bruno Mars and bubbles for the newlyweds to walk through there was an amazing outdoor feast for the guests.  After sunset everyone moved into the barn to get down to a live band!  Such a great night and so happy for the new Mr. & Mrs!

YAH!!!  I absolutely LOVE it when creative and gorgeous weddings like this one get published so that more brides can get inspired!  Thank You Rustic Wedding Chic for showcasing this wedding! This fall wedding at Olympia’s Valley Estate in Petaluma, Ca was a breath of fresh air with bright florals, yellow dresses and suspenders.  I just loved the way Thistle used the seasonal persimmons in the center pieces!  There was pieces of humor throughout the details starting with the invitations and party favors.  Such a great way to create a memorable experience for the guests.

Check out this gorgeous wedding on Fab You Bliss!

When you take an extremely awesome, fun loving couple like Beth & Jared and combine it with one of my all time favorite wedding venues, Olympia’s Valley Estate, you get a wedding that only dreams are made of!  From the moment I met these two I knew we were going to have a blast together!  I mean when a first meeting starts with Corona’s and tacos, forget about it.  It’s like you’ve won over my stomach and my heart all at once and the only thing that tops that is actually being fed tacos while I shoot your wedding.  When you first approach this estate you get goosebumps.  The lavender path leading to the charming home welcomes you with a fresh scent.  The sound of girls getting ready and the beats of the best play list ever fills the home with an infectious energy!  Beth looked absolutely stunning in her drop back lace dress and her shoes were to die for! Beth and Jared wanted to wait to see each other at the ceremony, but did a “first touch” which was so fun!  I could just sense the giddiness they both felt as soon as their hands met.  After the lake front ceremony, the reception took place in the beautiful barn with antique chandeliers, mirrors, and so much rustic charm!  Whenever there is a gathering at the barn, you know it is gonna be an experience that you will never forget!  Something about the setting makes for the best dance parties EVER!  Let’s just say, I didn’t want to leave! Before I give it all away, check out the story of their day below and don’t miss the delicious sunset that created an amber waves of gold in Beth’s hair.  Beth & Jared, I wish you the best and hope our paths cross again soon!

Most creative gift to date!  “I wanted to make the first ‘toast’ of the day!”

And these wine bottles each labeled with different ‘firsts’ as a married couple!  You open each bottle after your first baby, first fight, first big purchase, first dinner party, first anniversary, and first big trip!  The sentiment here speaks to me on so many levels!

Check out this wedding being featured right now on Rustic Wedding Chic!

It was love at first sight.  I mean, how could it not be…I was laughing, they were laughing…& the chemistry was there from the very start. I thought I was the only vendor that had this special connection with them, but apparently the DJ had the same experience!  haha! That just goes to show how incredible Miranda and James are!  They can’t help it.  They eat, sleep, and breath awesomeness.  They are: The Most Interesting Couple in the Universe.  For more fun shots of this couple check out their Engagement Session!  It’s only considered stalking if you try and hide it 😉 Their wedding did not fall short of amazing in any way either.  100% chance of rain and thunderstorms predicted for their ceremony, turned into 100% chance of sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns for these two.  Miranda looked absolutely stunning in her off the shoulder lace dress and birdcage veil that her awesome bridal party surprised her with.  Which leads me to my next thought…their bridal party on both sides was literally varsity style!  I couldn’t have picked a better team if I tried! I couldn’t get enough of all the special details surrounding the day from the yellow suspenders and bow ties, converse shoes, and hilarious signage.  Just wait ’til you see the adorable flower girl with her low back dress and floral head piece!  The Ring Bearer was literally un”bear”able (shoutout to you Pun lovers out there!)  in his yellow converse and suspenders!  I am so excited to share the story of their day!  I wish you both an amazing honeymoon and much more awesomeness to come in your marriage!

They wanted to wait for the ceremony to see each other, so they did a “First Touch” which was so beautiful to witness as they both held back tears.

The ring bearer decided he wanted to sit at the top of the stairs instead of walk down the aisle!  Lolli pops lured him down the aisle!

Just when I thought they couldn’t get any cuter, they go and put on their yellow converses and denim jacket!
