A Walnut Creek, Spring Wedding at Heather Farms // Brian & Emily

Our 2017 wedding season is now upon us & we couldn't be happier kicking it off with Brian & Emily's wedding blog post. For being a Walnut Creek native, I can't believe this was my first wedding at Heather Farms! It truly is such a beautiful venue if you love the outdoors, with gorgeous grounds to explore. We had perfect weather & it was a memorable day celebrating the union of Brian & Emily! They are a part of our church family & it's been a joy to get to know them during this season of their lives. Make sure to read through the blog post for some words from the bride, Emily. We loved hearing her thoughts behind the big day & to see who had a part in this wonderful celebration, scroll to the bottom. Cheers to the Dewey's! Xox- Jenny

How did you & Brian fall in love? "We didn't...it was an arranged marriage. Really fooled you guys in the pictures though am I right? Just kiddinggggg, we met at the NorthCreek college group called Impact. After a year of Brian being in the group (because he is TWO grades below me) we started dating. We really got to know each other and see the other's heart on the mission trip down to Watts, inner city LA."

Do you have any advice for a Bride & Groom regarding photography?  "Have fun! It is especially helpful when the photographers can make you laugh."

What was your favorite part about the wedding day? "The vows during the ceremony and finally getting to hear what Brian wrote. Also the way he teared up while reading the vows, showing his love and devotion."

"Chad & Jenny were very organized, on top of what needs to be done and their experience was helpful for planning out expected times and the full timeline of the day and when to take pictures. We loved meeting in person before the wedding over dessert to go through all the details. We loved the homemade pie ;) "  ///// That last bit made me laugh because when we had Brian & Emily over to go over their photography homework, I brought our a thawed, Trader Joe's pie & tried to pretend I made it, ha! I told them eventually ;)

A San Francisco Adventure // Ashley & Igor's Engagement Session

This was the BEST DAY. Our sweet couple was so fun to hang out with! It really was our ideal engagement shoot & we were giddy the whole day. We started off with a more intimate home session to help Igor & Ashley get comfortable & relaxed. Their home was so so cute, filled with adorable details & creative nooks. Afterwards, we explored some of their favorite outdoor places together while getting to hang out, get to know each other better & hear more about their relationship & their wedding vision. It was a beautiful day in the city, with the golden, fogginess providing us with beautiful light all day long. You will also see some GORGEOUS bouquets featured in this shoot, created by 2 of my talented florist friends Angels Petals & Sarah's Garden Design. Thank you so much, ladies! Absolutely stunning creations & love working with you both!

Congratulations, Igor & Ashley! We love you guys & love being a part of this special season in your lives! We can't wait for your wedding next August!
