Last summer, Sierra found my website and emailed me – we had one phone call (they live in Chicago) and we booked the date! I never met Steve or Sierra til I arrived there on Saturday but it doesn’t matter. Gorgeousness abounds!
Steve & the groomsmen got ready in the pool house. It was about 90 degrees and even with a ceiling fan, it was sweltering inside. The guys chose to hang out on the lawn instead.
Sierra & the bridesmaids got ready in the house. I loved this tote bag with their wedding date!
Steve’s adorable nephew gave some sweet smiles.
We arranged a “first look” so that Steve & Sierra could do most of their photos before the ceremony.
Each of the bridesmaids had a chalkboard saying how they met Sierra.
Very pretty. Love photographing lakeside!
When Sierra’s dad walked her down the aisle, he didn’t just give her a kiss – he gave her a big hug.
The kids in the movie got some extra encouragement for their participation (and quietness).
Sierra’s mom & stepdad own this house and her mom put this gorgeous “Mr. & Mrs.” lit-up sign on the roof!
Getting some sunset shots was one of Sierra’s requests, so we went out on the dock – everyone stayed very dry!
The only other “must have” was a re-creation of this photo from Sierra’s grandparents’ wedding from 1952!
Congrats guys – have an awesome time in San Francisco!! Enjoy it all!
