9/4/16 – Melissa and Denver – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Melissa and Denver!  I had SO MUCH fun knowing this great couple.  They are really real people!  So down to earth and family oriented.  Melissa did all of this wedding on her own.  She HANDMADE all of the decor.  Amazing doesn’t describe it.  She put a lot of work into making this day perfect, and it payed off!  It was beyond words stunning. AND…SHE was beyond stunning!  What a beautiful bride.  I am truly so happy for this lovely couple, and wish them the very best!!!!!

9/10/16-Tifani and Ryan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Tifani and Ryan!  LOVE LOVE LOVE these two!  My connection with them was instant and I feel so very honored to have been a part of their wedding day.  I did get to know them a bit through the wedding planning stages and they have such an admiration and love for each other that it touches all that come near them.  You could tell that from their friends and family as well.  All such wonderful people.  Tifani and Ryan have what it takes for a fulfilling life together; a deep admiration and love for each other, and the support of their many friends and family.

Their wedding day was the perfect reflection of them, as well as the support of their friends and family.  Everyone pitched in to help. Someone made those fabulous picnic tables that they used for the head table.  AMAZING!  It was just beautiful!  AND..Tifani, what a vision.  Oh my goodness she looked like an angel, and Ryan so dapper.  These two are truly meant to be together forever, and we wish them the very best!!!!

9/3/16 – Shaila and Cameron – Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0194Congratulations to Shaila and Cameron!!!  These two were high school sweethearts and I love that they stayed together through college, jobs, and just life in general.  Hearing those stories is so rare, and I think that when you grow up together, you have a bond like no other.  You can just tell that they adore each other, and they really such wonderful people.  Their friends and family are a great reflection of them.  Everyone was so kind, and really fun!  The fun factor was definitely present at this event!

Gwen Edwardson coordinated this wedding.  Anyone that follows my blog knows that I absolutely LOVE Gwen.  Not only is she an amazing coordinator, but she has become a great friend over the years.  She has a rare talent to coordinate these events so that they are the perfect reflection of the bride and groom.  I have done literally hundreds of weddings with her and every one of them has a unique vibe.  She pulled it off again with Shaila and Cameron.  Their wedding day was the perfect reflection of them, and they seemed so happy!

I got lots of pictures because Gwen events are very low maintenance on my behalf, so I have a lot of time.  I only hope that the pictures reflect the awesomeness of this day.

We wish Shaila and Cameron the very best!!!!!

8/27/16 – Kym and Taylor – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Kym and Taylor!!!  I LOVED these two from the moment I met with them, and knew that the classy yet relaxed vibe of the TBS Ranch was the perfect fit for them. Not only are Kym and Taylor really great..so are their friends and family!  I really had a lot of fun with this crowd.  So easy going and respectful.

The simple yet elegant set up and decor was the PERFECT reflection of Kym and Taylor.  What a lovely couple and we wish them the very best!!!!

8/20/16 – Kristi and Cody – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Kristi and Cody!!!  What a beautiful day for this lovely couple!  I did not get to stay for the ceremony, but Bobbie, the host that day, took some awesome pictures for me!  Bobbie is a lot more creative than me, and it shows in her photos.  I bet that you will be able to tell which ones are hers!  I am bummed that I did not get to see Kristi as a bride in person.  I knew that she was going to be a beautiful bride because of her classic California girl vibe, but the pictures that Bobbie sent blew me away!  Cody….you are one very fortunate young man!

Not only was Kristi beautiful, but the entire vibe of this event was awesome!  It was such a fun event…they even had a bounce house for the kids!

We wish them the very best!!!!

8/6/16-Michelle and Cody – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Michelle and Cody!!!  Michelle and Cody booked the TBS Ranch sight unseen!  Michelle’s mom visited and knew that it was the perfect venue for her daughter, and Michelle trusted her.  When I finally met with Michelle at the ranch, Cody was unable to come.  Michelle LOVED it and we hit it off right away.  She is such a doll!  I finally met Cody just a few weeks prior to the wedding date, and he was equally happy.  Them being happy makes me happy!

Their wedding day was AMAZING!  Michelle truly had a vision, and with the help of Kayla Bass as her wedding coordinator, her vision was brought to a very beautiful reality.  It was truly stunning.  I only hope that the pictures that I got speak for the incredible vibe of this day.

We wish this lovely couple the very best!

8/4/16 – Cynthia and Sean – Redding Wedding Venue, Redding Barn Wedding


Congratulations to Cynthia and Sean!!!  Cynthia was one of my very low maintenance brides that I have been blessed with this year.  She was fun to work with and very sweet.  She did an amazing job putting this lovely wedding together.  It has some really fun details, and I hope that they had the day of their dreams!  They are such a lovely couple, and we wish them the very best!!!!!

I also have to mention that Kathie, the host that evening, took some AMAZING pictures of them!  I don’t get those fun pictures because I leave right after the ceremony.  Kathie sent them to me and I will post them.  You will see that this couple is really so very sweet (=  Hope you enjoy…and thanks to Kathie!  I am going to have her do this from now on because these photos are really fun (=

7/16/16 – Jen and Derek – Redding Wedding Venue, Wedding Venue, Redding, CA


IMG_9465Congratulations to Jen and Derek!  What a truly handsome couple they are!  They are going to have cute kids (=  I should mention that they are pretty cool people as well.

Their day was AMAZING!  Jen did this ALL herself.  All of the arts and crafts, decorating, and set up.  She is quite creative.  Maybe a future wedding coordinator?  She should consider it because she truly has a natural talent for it.  It looked totally professionally decorated.

I had fun knowing this lovely couple, and we wish them the very best!!!!

7/2/16 – Cassie and Matt – Redding Wedding Venue, Barn Wedding Venue Redding, CA



IMG_9349Congratulations to Cassie and Matt!!!  I had so much fun with this crowd!  Lively and FUN!  This event had a very clean simple classy vibe.  Just LOVELY!  Ashley Jones coordinated this event, and I LOVE working with Ashley.  She has hosted weddings for us in the past and she does an amazing job.  Ashley and Cassie are friends from a long time back, so it was really fun for Ashley to do this event because she really knows the bride.  It showed in the simple clean lines of this set up.  Not overly accessorized, but ever so classy.  Also LOVED the fun vibe of the baseball themed snack bar and cupcake baseball diamond.  All in all just a lovely day for a lovely couple and we wish them the very best!!!

6/25/16 – Elaine and Tim – Redding Wedding Venue, Redding Barn Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Elaine and Tim!  Elaine was another one of my extremely low maintenance brides this year.  She wanted a casual setting where people could relax and have fun.  She totally nailed it!  The day had such a relaxed yet festive vibe that was amazing.  LOVED that Elaine did not wear a traditional wedding dress.  She looked SO stunning, and LOVED that her boys walked her down the aisle.  They were such well behaved teenagers!  That is hard to come by.  At the ceremony they thanked their mom for all she sacrificed for them, and then welcomed Tim into the family.  Very touching and meaningful. You could tell that it was from the heart, not rehearsed.  They are a great reflection of what great people Elaine and Tim are. We wish them the very best!!!
