Sarah and Shawn got married at the River Ridge Ranch in Springville California. It is one of my favorite locations for a wedding. Sarah did not miss a single detail. She had hand crafted almost every detail in her wedding. I was simply amazed with her details, from making her bridesmaids jewelry to making all the paper flowers at her reception and in the bouquets. I don't think the poor girl got much sleep before her wedding.
Sarah and Shawn are so much fun. I loved working with them on their engagement session and their wedding. You can tell they are loved by their friends and family by the vibe of the day.
Let me begin with some of the amazing details, that Sarah handcrafted.
Can you believe her paper flowers?
Sarah had a hand in designing her dress as well. Her veil was her mom's. A sentiment touch that melted my heart.
Loving the blue and bling that she added to her shoes!
Handmade paper corsages for the moms and grandmas.

Sarah made her aisle runner. I loved it.
Picture perfect Happiness!
Sarah's paper flowers even confused a humming bird during the ceremony.
You may now kiss!
I love how you can see the wedding party reflected in their glasses!
This picture cracks me up. They were doing their best housewives of Springville looks.

The back of her dress is amazing.
Just a boy and his girl.
Amazing tables thanks to Sarah's hard work!
I especially love this, because my husband and I call each other Mr. and Mrs. and we have done that since our wedding day. I think I might need to pick up some of Sarah's crafting skills and make me a little banner like this one.
I thought this was so awesome! They took their engagement pictures and put them on the home brew beer that they served at the reception!

I hate to be redundant, but, I Love this!
Sarah made her own wedding cake! She did such an amazing job. The idea of Sarah making her own cake blew me away! I don't think there is anything Sarah can't do!
Cake time! I love cake!
The River Ridge Ranch has a fire pit that is perfect for s'mores!
Just a little smooch to go with their strawberries.
Just one more little thing Sarah crafted for her big day.
After every wedding I shoot, I can't help but feel like the luckiest girl on earth. I have met the best people and they have invited me into one of their most important days of their lives. I love all of my brides and grooms. I love every detail about all of their weddings. They feel like family to me.
Thank you Sarah and Shawn for inviting me into your lives! You had an amazing wedding!
