Eddie & Sarah | wedding

When two families from different places come together through marriage it basically becomes –– a huge party.  

That’s exactly how I would describe the wedding of Eddie+Sarah on 3.24.18.  There was a perfect mixture of both British & Mexican elements incorporated throughout the day.  Every detail of the day reflected their cultures in a beautifully blended way; from the sermon during the ceremony to the maracas at the send-off.  Feeling more like a family reunion than a wedding, the love & joy was felt by ALL.  

When we think back on the day & all the special moments -- it’s hard to pick a favorite.  So...we’re not going to! However, a couple moments did stand out.

–– the dancing.  Eddie+Sarah are no strangers to dancing so their first dance was a stunner.  On top of that, it seemed that everyone on BOTH sides of the family were excellent dancers so the dance floor was busy the whole evening.  Let’s just say, we were ready to sign up for lessons THAT NIGHT because it was so exciting.

–– the details.  The couple thought of everything when it came to making their wedding day a reflection of the two of them, their families, & the love they have for Jesus.  Little sentimental quotes + decor about their relationship could be found all over the venue. The food, drinks, send-off maracas, translations & more were representative of Eddie’s side of the family.  Little aspects of the ceremony added beautiful touches of Sarah’s side of the family & the sermon+prayers offered up throughout the day demonstrated their gratitude & reliance on Jesus to be the center of it all.

Ultimately, the wedding of Eddie+Sarah Martinez is going in the books as one of our favorite weddings of 2018. Wishing you two ALL THE BEST in your marriage. Cheers!

Jessie & Bree | wedding

weddings are magical / joyful / exciting / emotional & full of special moments.  the Osborn wedding was absolutely all of those things & more.  good food / great friends / live music / two people making a promise....all the ingredients for a beautiful wedding.

the place – Red Bluff Inn.

the day – June 17, 2017.

the couple – Bree & Jessie (Oz).  

although the day turned out to be one of the hottest of the year, you’d be hard-pressed to hear any complaints from the bride+groom.  the two simply smiled, laughed & enjoyed preparing to commit themselves to each other in front of family & friends.  bree’s dog, Blue, roamed the property & occasionally took a dip in the lake to cool off.  meanwhile, friends & family set up tents & campfires for the post-wedding retreat.  the ceremony was intimate & reflected the couple’s love and values perfectly. one of the most memorable moments of the ceremony was when the couple & bree’s son potted plants together as a symbol of the family becoming one.              (insert all the feels!)

as the day came to an end, the air was filled with music & laughter as everyone danced the night away and made their way to the tents.  basically….it was a dream. cheers to the lovely couple & may their marriage be full of as much joy & love as their wedding day.
