meghan + greg | empire mine wedding

He was the one who got her to enjoy camping.  It was then that her friends + family knew it was true love.  Let’s not mention the chili incident they had while on their first camping trip, even though it did lead to their one of their inside jokes together as a couple {“I chili you”}.  A courtship + a puppy adoption later, and we are taken to their wedding day early last month…

Meg + Greg.  Seriously. Thank you. Thank you for choosing me to document your perfectly planned event.  Meg, your attention to detail truly shined that day – I hope everything turned out as you had imagined it.  And, of course, your love for each other was evident in every step, in every word, and in every breath.  I was honored to be a part of your day.  🙂

The day began in a bridal suite at a nearby hotel in quaint Grass Valley…

It was a GORGEOUS day filled with lots of details, all organized by the bride herself.  Everything came together perfectly during their double ceremony that day and reception later that evening.  The dress was stunning as was the bride wearing it (of course).  And the bridesmaid’s dresses were the perfect shade of coral.

And the rings?  Crazy beautiful.

I love this dichotomy of the bride + her maids getting ready vs. the groom + his guys (who were captured by my fab 2nd shooter Mindy).

After the girls were all ready, we headed over to Empire Mine for some fun bridal portraits…

Work it, Meg!

A 3 generation ring shot (from left to right, bride’s granny, bride, and bride’s mom).  I love that the bride requested this.

Meanwhile, back with the boys…

The entire bridal party then headed to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for the first of two ceremonies.  It was a simply beautiful.

Then, back to Empire Mine for ceremony number two, and the best. reception. ever.

We took a photo of all the guests in attendance immediately after the ceremony.  Love this!  Such a fun shot!

Some special moments with the new Mr. + Mrs.

The details at the reception were amazing… As I mentioned above, you could see Meg’s attention to detail in everything.

The cake was simple and so beautiful.

And the white lanterns + candles strewn all over let off the best ambient lighting long after the sun went down.

I’ll leave you with a couple of images of the bride and groom sharing their first dance together as husband + wife.  A blissful, peaceful moment together, savoring all their hard work and basking in the love from their friends and family.  So special.
