Ryan and Shannon’s wedding at the Flower Farm

I am so super duper excited to post this wedding! I have to start off by saying that Ryan and Shannon are two of the sweetest, friendliest, energetic, completely-full-of-personality people you will meet. From the moment we met them, we knew they would be a blast to get to know and we were right! We had SO much fun with them on their engagement session incorporating all of their ideas into the photos. Fast forward to their wedding day and I could not imagine anything more perfectly “them”. The weather that day was perfect at the Flower Farm in Loomis, which is one incredible venue. I don’t think I can get enough of this place. The photo opportunities are nearly endless. Everywhere you turn there is something beautiful. Pair that with a gorgeous bride and handsome groom and we were in photographer’s heaven!

Shannon has the BEST facial expressions in every photo! She kept everyone laughing all day!

I LOOOVE this one of Shannon and her sister/MOH. You two are too sweet!

Get a load of these beautiful blooms! I kind of had a wee crush on the flowers.

And then there is Shannon. I could not stop taking photos of this gorgeous girl! She had so much joy bubbling up inside her that you could just see the happiness in every photo. Don’t even get me started on little Tucker! I mean, a bride and a puppy? How much cuter can you be?!

Plus, she is a DIY queen! Along with help from Ryan, she made her own jewelry, and all of the bridesmaids jewelry, plus Ryan’s tie pin, not to mention all the wedding decor. You rock Shannon!

While I was basking in the loveliness of Shannon and her best girls, Geoff had the honor of photographing Ryan. Now here is a guy every dad wants his daughter to marry — so sweet, so thoughtful, funny, and so cute! I said it before, but these two are simply perfect for each other.

Because photography was so important to Ryan and Shannon (and ’cause they are just plain awesome) they decided on a First Look. If you are not familiar with a First Look, basically, prior to the ceremony, we set the bride and groom in a beautiful location and they get to see each other for the first time, just the two of them, and get to enjoy some intimate alone time (probably all they will get all day!) while Geoff and I snap away. It takes some of the edge off on your wedding day and allows us to get time for some amazing photography. Case in point, Ryan and Shannon.

After Ryan and Shannon’s portraits, we got the bridal party back together for some group shots of everyone.

The couple even made it in their plan to do the family photos pre-ceremony. Hey, less photos to take after the ceremony = more time to party!

Shannon and her dad were hilarious!

Before too long, it was time to marry these two crazy lovebirds!

Speaking of DIY, check out the cute flip-flops Shannon made for her ‘maids to wear at the reception. Such a thoughtful bride!

The license is signed — it’s official!

After that, it was on to the reception and party time!

Who does not love a candy bar!? I always love those pops of bright colors! I also adore the way they used one of their engagement session photo for the sign. SO glad we stopped at that candy store in Old Sacramento!

Ryan’s mom and dad sang a special song for the newlyweds. It was adorable.

During the toasts, Shannon’s dad literally “passed the torch” over to Ryan! What a great moment!

Their cake, made by Cakes by Jami was so simple and so beautiful.

Bouquet and garter toss photos never fail to crack me up big time.

For their first dance, Ryan and Shannon planned a little surprise…

…in the form of an out-of-control-awesome swing dance!

I cannot say it enough, Ryan and Shannon THANK YOU for choosing us to capture your wedding day. Geoff and I feel honored just to KNOW you let alone have our photographs be a part of your lives. We know you are going to have a long happy marriage and we wish you nothing but the best for the future! Our only hope is that we can have as much fun in our own marriage as you two seem to have around each other.
