On Friday, July 7, 2017, in Winters California, these two beautiful ladies were married in a sweet ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and loved ones. (Happy one month anniversary!!!!)
They threw the most incredible party at their family friend’s gorgeous country home, and I had a wonderful time being their wedding photographer. They picked perhaps the hottest day of the year for their rustic backyard wedding, but everything ended up being absolutely lovely. Darcy and Brandi live in Chicago, but they were married in Brandi’s home town, and I am very happy that they did. They had friends and family travel from all over to watch them tie the knot, and it was a beautiful day.
I originally met Brandi several years ago, when I photographed her friend Janine’s wedding in Sacramento back in 2014. Brandi was a bridesmaid in that wedding and I remember taking her picture, and remember that day as one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever photographed. When Brandi messaged me asking me to be her own wedding photographer, I was very excited, assuming that her wedding would be great as well. (And let me say, it sure was!)
Darcy and Brandi are an amazing couple and they were wonderful to work with. I love photographing people in love, and there was an abundance of love and happiness in the air during this day. Listening to these two exchange personalized vows to support and love one another forever was such a beautiful moment. I doubt there was a dry eye in the crowd. The couple has an amazing group of friends that are very fun to be around. I think one of the peak moments in my career as a wedding photographer was watching Darcy’s maid of honor flawlessly perform a hilarious rap she wrote about the couple. It was absolutely fantastic and I hear that there is a video of her rapping floating around on Instagram. The day went amazingly and everyone danced and partied late into the night.
Congratulations again to these lovely brides! <3
