Placerville, California – Eden Vale Inn
Northern California Wedding
Melissa + Sean
Melissa and Sean’s Wedding day was held in the beautiful and romantic Eden Vale Inn. Located in a small city Placerville California. This intimate get away his hidden amongst the backroads and trees for special occasions and romantic getaways. For Melissa and Sean they wanted a smaller intimate Wedding Ceremony and will hold a Reception in Las Vegas for their Extended family and friends.In preparation for their Wedding Ceremony, Melissa read her vows in a private spa room during her few private moments early in the day. The glow on her face as she prepared to Marry her best friend had carried throughout this day and days leading to this. Her Wedding Dress was beautiful and accented with a beautiful red sash. As she finished getting ready we wanted to do a first look with her Parents as they had been emotional for this day and I knew it would be a beautiful moment.Moments before the Wedding Ceremony in a private little area I brought her Parents to, Melissa revealed the final look for a warm embrace. Her Mom in tears and dad glowing with Love for his Daughter. Melissa looked angelic amongst the forestry backdrop as she approached them from behind. I love to include Parents in moments that otherwise wouldn’t happen. How proud and happy they both are for her on this special occasion.Melissa just like her Mom and Sister are full of energy and enthusiasm. As she walked down the aisle to her Groom she couldn’t help but laugh and smile in anticipation to hold his hands. Sean so in love just gazed in awe of his beautiful Bride as she approached him. he is so proud to call this lovely Woman his Bride.In keeping with the intimate and family vibe, Sean’s Brother conducted the Ceremony and guided them through each moment. The Sand Ceremony is a popular way to show that two souls in Love once united can never be separated. It is quite a romantic way to showcase true Love.A family moment at the end of the Wedding Ceremony. Warm embraces, kisses and love was in the air. The backdrop for some family portraits was breathtaking. Endless hills and cool air breeze had everyone feeling great. After some Family Portraits we headed around to photograph some breathtaking moments of this loving Married couple. In the depths of pathways and luscious trees, Melissa and Sean embraced each other. As i was able to step back nd let them have their moments together. As I learned from their Engagement Session. They need very little direction and just display their feelings for each other of nothing less than true Love.Is it bad if I am in love with these photos? Either way i am and the moments are just intense, i love the fact I am blessed enough to be part of these special and romantic occasions. As a Wedding Photographer there is endless trust in me to photograph this special day in a way that leaves viewers feeling emotion. To me its not just another Wedding, its a special moment in time for one unique and in Love couple that I take serious every time I pick up that camera. I want every client of mine to feel that care I feel for them.Melissa I promise is always smiling. She is so happy and brings a smile to anyone she is around. Doesn’t she just look gorgeous in her beautiful Wedding Gown. This is a true example of celebration your Wedding day the way you want. There should be no formula or system to a Wedding. It a way to express your style and personality. And to end their pictures we hoped on a little boat on this small private lake for them to to have some moments alone.Bringing their love for the water full circle from their beautiful Lake Engagement session. The Gentleman Sean is he rowed his blushing Bride through the water and shared some romantic kisses. I just love the surrounding trees and reflections in the water as the cruised around this private lake.Sharing a relaxing moment before they get ready for a sunset dinner with their family. I love the Red Heels Melissa wore this day. I am always a fan of fancy shoes Brides choose to show that style. The overlook of this river was beautiful and relaxing.
The day ended along side a beautiful camp fire where Melissa and Sean shared stories and fun times with their family. After the day and night came to an end I was looking even more forward to their Wedding Reception back in Las Vegas at Legends Ranch.
