Kelsey and Joel are one of my favorite couples that I have ever photographed! I met them through a friend who went with them to Biola University, where they met. Once I shot their engagement photos last year, I knew that their wedding was going to be incredible. Since Kelsey a wedding photographer herself, she and Joel seriously know how to work the camera! Definitely the most photogenic couple ever. It was a breeze capturing their natural, joyful love.
The field for their ceremony has special significance for them. It's not a venue, but a random farm field in the outskirts of Sacramento, just a few miles from Kelsey's childhood home. Last year, as Joel and Kelsey frolicked through the field, Joel got down on a knee to propose to her. They decided it would be so special to share their vows there! And trust me, a wildflower field at the foothills of snow-topped mountains was definitely romantic. I couldn't believe the weather we had on that March day. It was 80 degrees out there!
For their reception, we headed down the road to Kelsey's parent's house, who own a barn wedding venue on their property. It's so fun that Kelsey got to really make her wedding unique, it being at her house. There we were met with Kelsey and Joel's favorite meal: breakfast for dinner! Complete with a mimosa bar and donut truck for dessert. Can it get any better?! I was so blown away the whole evening at how much both of their families completely love and support them. It was such an honor to get to capture this wedding. Love you guys!
