An overview of the wedding reception at the Citizen Hotel.

Kristin and Adrian got married at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento in October, 2009.

The bridal party took over the entire penthouse floor of the Citizen Hotel for their wedding preparations. It was a beautiful fall day and the views were spectacular from the penthouse balconies.

The wedding was coordinated by Harmony Lines of the Citizen Hotel. She and her staff did a magnificent job.

Musical entertainment and lighting was done by Matt Brys of Extreme Productions Entertainment, who did an outstanding job – as usual – Matt is one of the best DJs I have worked with in the Sacramento area.

The flowers for the wedding were done by Twiggs Floral Design.

Lenna and Harllee had a very fun wedding at the Taber Ranch in the Capay Valley near the town of Esparto.

The 500 acre ranch offer stunning backdrops for beautiful romantic weddings in a very private and rustic setting.

The hilltop above the barn has an amazing panoramic view of the Capay valley. The lawn where Lenna and HArllee had their wedding ceremony overlooks a pond filled with colorful Koi. The wedding reception was held in a beautifully elegant 70-year old rustic barn.

Viansa Winery wedding photography – Sonoma – Leyla & Steve

A wedding portrait of Leyla and Steve by the doors to wedding at the Viansa Winery in Sonoma County.

Leyla and Steve got married at the beautiful Viansa Winery in Sonoma. It was a spectacular day for a wedding and the weather was just lovely – a little on the breezy side, but that kept things from getting too hot.

The winery has wonderful romantic Tuscan architecture with some amazingly gorgeous views of the Sonoma Valley.

I also photographed Leyla and Steve’s engagement photos at Capitol Park and in Old Town Sacramento.

I had such a fun time working with Amanda and Josh doing their wedding photos and engagement shoot. What a great couple.

Seattle wedding photography, Grand Hyatt Hotel, downtown Seattle

In the elevator - going to get changed for the western version of the wedding wedding at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Downtown Seattle.

Sophia and Kurtis got married at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in downtown Seattle.

This Seattle wedding had two ceremonies, the first was a traditional Chinese tea ceremony where family members and close friends exchange gifts and tea with the bride and groom. The second was a traditional western style wedding with about 200 guests.

After the tea ceremony, the bride got out of her traditional Chinese dress and put on a wedding dress for some photos at the Pike Street Market. It was fun taking photos in Post Alley with all of the tourists milling about.

After the photos there was a wedding ceremony at the Grand Hyatt followed by a reception with dancing, a game room, and gambling area.

I was working with photographer Eric Sartoris of Norther Lights photography at this wedding, which was coordinated by Merry Beth Turpin.

It was quite a fun wedding

After the wedding ceremony, the bridal party took a short walk from the Valhalla Grand Hall down to the shores of Lake Tahoe for some portraits of the bridal party. We did some shots on the pier and beach before getting in our cars for the drive to Emerald Cove where we did some more wedding photos. Emerald Cove has to be one of the most beautiful spots on Lake Tahoe. It was a treat to be able to take some wedding photos with Emerald Cove and Lake Tahoe in the background.
