5/7/16 – Sam and Patrick – Redding Barn Wedding Venue, Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Sam and Patrick!  They did not have the most perfect weather, but they did have a beautiful wedding!  The vibe of this event was just so relaxed and FUN!  I think that the guests were happy it was raining.  It makes it different in a good way.  Sam and Patrick are just so easy going, it could have been snowing and it wouldn’t have bothered them any.  They were both just glowing with happiness!  It is very evident that they are crazy about each other.  I had a lot of fun working with them, and feel honored to have been a part of their day.

Also, have to mention Gwen!  This wedding was coordinated by Gwen Edwarson events and as always…she did an amazing job putting it all together.  Rain days require a bit more work because of the set up for the ceremony in the barn.  Gwen and her team made it flawless.  THANKS Gwen for making my life easy (=

4/30/16 – Kelsey and Garrett – Redding Wedding Venue, Barn Wedding Venue Redding


Congratulations to Kelsey and Garrett!!!  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it when high school sweethearts get married!  These two did it right…waited until after college!  It speaks volumes for a relationship to survive high school and college, so these two are set for life. They are just the sweetest ever!  I just hope that the pictures I took do the amazing vibe of this wedding justice.  Bobbie hosted this one so she sent me some awesome photos to share as well.  Thank goodness I have her because a lot of my photos turned out dad.  This was a fun one for Bobbie to host because she knew the family which makes it more personal.  LOVELY couple and we wish them the very best!!!!

Congratulations to Suzie and Tim!!!!  Oh my goodness I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed these two and the entire crowd!  The vibe of this day was so relaxed and inviting, very much like Suzie and Tim!  LOVED the orange in the barn.  It really brought in a springy happy feel.  The day was overall just amazing, and we wish the outstanding bride and groom the very best!!!!

4/23/16 – Andria and Dwayne – Redding Wedding Venue, Outdoor / Barn Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Andria and Dwayne!  I knew from the moment I saw Andria that she was going to be a beautiful classic bride.  She has those Snow White features that always make for such a stunning bride!  I was right!!  She did not disappoint!  Not only was she beautiful, but she is kind and has a fun personality as well.  Dwayne is a very fortunate young man, and I’m sure that he knows that!

The event had an extremely classic vibe .. it just screamed class, but not stuffy at all.  Having the barn fixes that problem!  It was an amazing day, and we wish them an amazing life!

ps…if you notice that some of these photos are better than my “usual”, it is because the host that evening, Bobbie, snapped a few shots and shared them with me.  She bakes wedding cakes as a hobby, and her creative skills obviously don’t stop there.  She is a great photographer as well!  SO much better than me!  I guess my talents lie elsewhere (=

4/9/16-Local 185 Laborer’s Annual Event-Corporate Event Venue Redding, CA,

LOVE LOVE LOVE having the crowd from the Local 185 every year.  I think that this one was the 10th with us?  Always a good time, but we had to miss it this year and have staff cover for us.  It was held on the same day as my Aunt’s 80th Birthday party in Portland, and we couldn’t miss that.  You only get to celebrate your 80th Birthday once, and I will get the opportunity to see my friends from the Local 185 next April, and I will have that to look forward to!




4/2/16 – Stacey and Sam – Redding Wedding Venue, Redding Barn Wedding


IMG_6583Congratulations to Stacey and Sam!!!  They are such a classy couple, but not stuffy classy. The kind classy that all of us want to achieve and look up to.  Their wedding was the perfect reflection of that.  VERY classy and elegant, but did not have the stuffy part.  It was very relaxed and OH SO STUNNING.  This was a Gwen event (Gwen Edwardson Events) and as always she, along with her team of what I call “Gwen’s girls”, did an amazing job bringing Stacey’s vision of her day to life.  The vibe of this day was so amazing.  I was able to get a LOT of pictures because when Gwen and her girls are on staff, it makes my day a lot less hectic.  I only hope that the pictures I am sharing will capture just a bit of the magic of this day (=

We wish Stacey and Sam the very best!!!!
