My brides lately have had the MOST GORGEOUS D.I.Y. weddings, and Diana and Brian’s Vista Ranch and Cellars wedding was no exception. Diana and her friends and family worked countless hours creating centerpieces, florals (yes, her mother created the stunning floral arrangements!), and all the other details in between. My favorite part of this Merced, CA venue was the bridal cottage. It had EVERYTHING a bride could need on her wedding day all in one place including a salon, a kitchen, gorgeous window light, and lots of space for the bridesmaids and family to relax.

Thanks you two, again, for allowing me and my awesome second shooter, Shelby, to document your day!

My jaw dropped to the floor as I arrived at Audri and Allyn’s one year wedding anniversary celebration! Since Allyn is in the military, they were married in a courthouse, and decided on their 1 year anniversary to have an AMAZING wedding celebration. From the decorations, to the bride and groom, and all the details in between, it was a PERFECT night. Thank you guys so much for having me on your special day.
