I like forest weddings. It’s nice to plan your wedding in a remote location free from distractions and the fast-paced life which most of us often experience daily. This woodsy intimate wedding felt like the middle of nowhere, but it was just outside of Santa Rosa. Chris and Rachel married in the presence of close friends and family, surrounded by old ginormous trees. I almost felt we were going to bust out the tents and go camping, and with style. Rachel’s wedding dress made her look like a kingdom princess in some once upon a time fairy-tale story, and Chris the knight and shining armor or whatever they were called back then. Rachel and Chris put much thought into the details, delicious desserts and design. They kept their wedding simple, yet they were creative with their DIY projects and props. I’m not only glad to have photographed their wedding, but also to have made some new friends. They were kind and friendly, and it was obvious that God and Family were central to their wedding. I left inspired and encouraged. Here are just a few images from their wedding day! Congratulations to Chris and Rachel once again.
