Aaron & Amanda {Suisun Valley wedding}

When Amanda and I talked on the Monday before her wedding the forecast was looking not so great... Rain on your outdoor ceremony is not ideal! But Saturday rolled around and we were blessed with zero rain!

Aaron & Amanda got married at the fantastic Ledgewood Creek Winery just outside of Fairfield in the Suisun Valley. It's a hidden gem & a lovely spot to get married at. During the ceremony I couldn't help but think how peaceful it was there :)

I absolutely loved Aaron & Amanda, or A&A :) They are both so incredibly kind, it's no wonder they wound up together. If the future brides & grooms I work with are anything like them I will be the luckiest photographer on the planet! One of my favorite things was how you could tell how much they loved each other, just by looking at them. Aaron had eyes for no other but his beautiful bride. Amanda's face lit up the moment she saw him.

The morning began with hair & make up of course!

Looooved Amanda's shoes!

The definition of a glowing bride... so beautiful!

Aaron & his crew!

Amanda & her girls!

Now, I'm pretty traditional. I never would have dreamed I would one day recommended a bride to see the groom before the wedding... but, confession: I've been converted. There's no denying that Aaron & Amanda's first look was my absolute favorite part of the day.

It was all I could do to not tear up while I was shooting.

Talk. About. Powerful.

How perfect do these two look together? VERY PERFECT.

In love with this shot by my AMAZING second shooter Jessie Louise! She is the best. FOR REALS.

I could have shot them until I ran out of memory cards. But alas, these two had a ceremony to get started!

This one doesn't need a caption...

Right before the first kiss, the illusive sun came out! Talk about awesome timing! :)

They're married!

Now time for the party!! Made For You did an amazing job with all the decor & details!

Congratulations Aaron & Amanda! Always love each other this much :)
