We hiked up and up and up the mountain, heading towards the treeline. It was too late in Winter for snow to be on the ground, and yet too early in Spring for many of the trees to be sprouting out yet. Jane wore hiking boots under her wedding dress and Jared, myself and Jane's mom took turns helping her carry her train (and Jane took turns herself too!). We hiked through the forest, up the mountain to the top of a dry stream with an amazing view. We stopped here and there to capture these beautiful fairytale moments between Jane & Jared. It was beautiful! Jane & Jared had a Once Upon a Time themed wedding, and most certainly Jane reminds me of Snow White in all of these images! It's a dream!
Tiffany and Brett married at a private residence in Placerville last year. They had been friends since high school, even going to the prom together, but didn't date until years later. They finally married in a peacock themed wedding with friends and family surrounding.
I am not a professional videographer, nor is my staff. However, from time to time we slyly pick up video cameras during events and capture a few moments here and there just for fun. Tiffany & Brett's wedding was one of those events that I was able to capture a few extra special moments and compile into a fusion film for them to keep. Be sure to watch the ending to see how their story turns out. The song was supposed to be their first dance song, which accidentally wasn't played at first, but the whole thing is here now!
(You can watch the video in HD on Vimeo, and the quality is a little better.)
Jane and Jared are a very special, very smart couple who just started their lives together a couple of weeks ago. They elected to do a First Look in the woods above Salt Lake City in the Wasatch Mountains a couple of days before their wedding. Joining my elite and special group of brides who have chosen to dress in the woods, out in nature, Jane also chose to do this as well, and we closed down the trail for a few precious moments and her mother dressed her only daughter in her wedding gown for the first time her husband to be would see her in it. We all backed off and gave them some private space in a little clearing in the trees and let them talk and hug and see each other alone for their First Look. Afterwards, we climbed out of the glen and hiked for about an hour up the mountain. It was exhausting, but amazing and exhilarating, and definitely memorable and unique! It is not often you see a bride hiking in her wedding dress BEFORE her wedding! Jane looked like Snow White coming through the forest!
This was such a busy, busy day and a happy happy wedding! After the ceremony at Mission San Carlos in Carmel, we took a drive down Highway 1 to the Big Sur coastline for some couple's portraits. It was crazy windy, blindingly bright, but super pretty! We lasted all of about 5 minutes, but crammed as much in as possible into those 5 minutes! After our trip down the coast, the bride and groom took a quick break before the reception, which was held at the wonderful Il Fornaio Restaurant at the Pine Inn in Carmel by the Sea, which is one of my favorite places. I hadn't been there in more than a decade, but it was pretty much just as a remembered and just as lovely. Everyone ate, drank and was merry as could be!
