Andrea knew she wanted to have her ceremony at the church she grew up in and her reception at her family barn but grew anxious to ask her father, worried he would say no.

“I didn’t want to take away from the natural beauty of the ranch as the reception backdrop, so we kept decorations simple and elegant,” says Andrea. “I wanted the day to be about Henry and I becoming a family and celebrating our family and friends that were there and those that we had lost,”

High school sweethearts, Sydney and Aaron married last summer amongst close friends in surroundings Sydney could only describe as romantic, beautiful, and peaceful.

“Planning a wedding can be very overwhelming,” shares Sydney. The couple started off with notepads and address books to ensure they stayed organized and did not forget any details. They both agreed on Monte Verde as their wedding venue, which made their theme easy to put together. “Whimsical, romantic, and magical with lots of flowers,” explains Sydney. She even decided to include floral crowns for each of her bridesmaids.

Featured Wedding ~ Kait & Aly McKay Fields

Married May 30, 2015

Lehman Barn at Verozza Ranch, El Dorado Hills, CA

Who says you can’t find love in a bar? On a cold rainy saturday evening in March of 2012, Kait and Aly were begrudgingly celebrating a mutual friends birthday when Aly noticed a boisterous Kait conversing with everyone around her. After introducing themselves, they did what anyone  else would have done in that moment and challenged one another to a beer drinking contest. As they chugged away, they forged a bond that neither knew would take them down the road to eternal happiness. As all great love stories go, there must be a conflict: Kait called a cab to drive her home, leaving Aly only with her name and hopes that she would see her again. Persistent Aly, with the help of technology, had her number and date set up the very next day. The rest, as they say, is history.

Kait and Aly knew they wanted their wedding to be outside in late spring or early summer, so they decided that May 30th, 2015, would be the day that they said their “I-Do’s” The two realized that planning wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be. Keywords that were important to the couple helped in putting together inspiration boards to visualize different concepts.

Working together with love, communication, patience, and ease, they maneuvered various obstacles and made tweaks along the way. They knew that they wanted their event to go with the flow and never be forced, just as their growing love had. Aly and Kait were also very ambitious, and they found that the biggest issues with planning the wedding were with the outlandish ideas they each brought to the table. At one point, Kait had patterns to make the bridesmaid’s dresses…all eight of them! Kait started DIY project after DIY project; building on a theme that fit them both so well: California Lovin. With the help of family and friends, their wedding dream was brought to life. They created and made all of their own lawn games, and their wooden California cutout acted as the perfect guest book for all of their family and loved ones to commemorate the moment.

Featured Wedding ~ Nahrain & Tyler Kelly

Married September 12, 2015

Private Residence, Modesto, CA

View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2015-09-12-tyler--nahrain-collection-images

When Tyler told Nahrain about his plans for an exciting five-day vacation to Sacramento , she was less than thrilled. However, after the first night in Sacramento, Tyler surprised Nahrain by driving to the airport with tickets to Portland, Oregon.

After checking in to the historic Heathman Hotel, Tyler insisted that they leave almost immediately. He escorted her through the idyllic Japanese Gardens until he found a quiet spot by a waterfall to sit and talk. Tyler took this opportunity to pop the question.

When they got back to the hotel, a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of Nahrain’s favorite flower, calla lilies, awaited her. What followed was an amazing trip full of fabulous meals, great beer, activities, and zero sales tax.

With the wedding date set for one year out, the couple began planning. They started with their color scheme of ivory and gold and decided that Tyler’s parents  home would be the ideal location for their nuptials. They then quickly decided on their florist, caterer, and one of BCM’s favorite photographers, Kori and Jared Photography. From there, they relied heavily on help from the people they trusted.

Jolyn and Caleb had a picture perfect wedding. Everything from the lighting, to the decor, to all the love surrounding them, set them up for the most perfect day.

Photographer Feather + North captured the gorgeous use of florals, colors, and textures perfectly. Everything seemed so soft, and easy going, like a dream.

The turquoise, blush, and greens created the perfect color scheme. The soft color scheme was far from distracting, but romantic. We could look at these photographs all day. Pure perfection.
