From beginning to end, this wedding was a labor of love. Erica, Zach, their family and friends put so much time, effort, sweat, tears into creating this beautiful day and I’m pretty sure it was everything they’d hoped for and more! The ceremony and reception took place at Zach’s grandparents property in Ramona complete with windmills, airplanes and a refurbished Mercedes (by the groom himself)! I was so honored to be a part of this amazing celebration. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of family & friends who welcomed me (and my assistants) as family, always checking in with us and making sure we were okay and had everything we needed. And Erica and Zach? Well, let’s just say these two are the cutest and so so in love with each other. They couldn’t stop smiling, crying, laughing all day long and I know they cherished every single moment to take in all of the effort and love that was put forth in making their wedding day perfect. THANK YOU both for such an amazing day!!

Beautiful bridesmaids!!

Silly in love.

I won’t repeat what embarrassing childhood story Zach’s brother said during his speech, but I think the look on Erica’s face says it all. 😉

Let the dance party begin!

Emily & Matthew!! You may recognize them from their Sacramento wedding I shot last June!! I wouldn’t have been at this wedding if it weren’t for Emily…who used to live with Erica and also had Erica as a bridesmaid in her own wedding! Love these two. 🙂
