I’v been waiting for this wedding all summer long! I knew its was going to be one I loved and wow did they not disappoint. First off, I love this whole family! A few years ago I did this sweet bride’s sisters wedding. So you might recognize her in these photos! I love when I get to do weddings in the same family. It’s so fun and I feel like I know the family that much better by wedding #2! I was also THRILLED to be shooting at Devine Ranch. It is a very new venue in the Bay Area. Jamie’s wedding was only the third one there. Devine Ranch sits high up top a mountain near Santa Cruz and everywhere you turned there was another gorgeous spot just waiting to be photographed. I might have got a little picture happy in this blog post… but I just couldn’t cut down the photos!

Jamie and her maid of honor, Cassie, who was also a Rachel Blackwell bride!!
Reading a sweet note from her soon to be hubby!
Ha, I think this pic is funny! Shows Jamie’s personality!!
On one of my top 3 moments of the day! Daddy’s first look!
So I love this pic for many reason, but mostly because you can see Jamie’s mama in the lower right corner of the mirror.
Now time for the First Look with Mike.
I think he was impressed.
Very very impressed.
Time for some fun photos on this gorgeous property.
So so pretty! And those flowers… perfect!
We moved to the tree line for a different look that was oh so cute.
Mike with his sister.
Pretty sharp looking groom.
All of Jamie (and now Mike’s) nieces and nephews were the flower girls and ring bearers.
Love these 2 pics! Especially Mike, ha!
Mike with all of Jamie’s brothers and brother in laws! What a fun family to marry into!
Then it was off to the ceremony.
Cute details all around.
So can you tell Mike’s looking for his bride. She had not walked out yet. It think he was a bit nervous.
Again, such a beautiful venue. One of my favorite I’ve shot at.
First kiss as husband and wife.
Now onto the reception. The details were SO fun to photograph.
Jamie & Mike love coffee. So it was only appropriate to send their guests home with coffee.
It’s hard to see… but their plates say “I do” and “Me too”. How precious is that??
Such fun and thoughtful speeches by the best man and maid of honor.
Signing the marriage license. Eekkk!
The it was time for some dancing fun!
Jamie got this shirt for her brother as a surprise! What a good sissy!
Then we headed back out for a few quick pics before the sun went down.
Back to the dance floor!
I saw some serious moves at this wedding!
And they are off….
Thanks for letting me be a part of your day Mike & Jamie! Marriage is awesome!
