When I was asked to photograph Jen + Trevor's wedding in Saratoga Springs, CA, I was beyond thrilled. This wedding is definitely a special one, as it was my first (hopefully of many more) destination wedding. It was a beautiful day, and many of Jen + Trevor's friends from around the country, even across the pond, came to share in their celebration. Photographing their wedding allowed me to see some parts of Northern California that I had never been too! They decided to say "I do" at Stanford Memorial Church right on Stanford's campus, where Jen's Mom + Dad got married years back.
After a gorgeous ceremony, Jen + Trev cruised off into the California hills in a vintage Porsche, while the bridal party and I headed over to Saratoga Springs, a gorgeous outdoor wedding venue, tucked right in the heart of Saratoga. This is where I really began to fall in love with their wedding. They decorated each table with accents of succulents and rustic vases. Twinkly lights were hung from tree to tree, and a gorgeous old bridge made the perfect background. A lot of thought and effort was put into creating this little whimsical, romantic, woodland paradise.
For formal photos, Jen wanted everyone deep in the woods, by a little creek. It made for the perfect little hideaway as guests began to arrive.
Once Jen + Trev were introduced, the party began. Guests spent the entire night singing, dancing and laughing in honor of Jen + Trevor's love. It was truly beautiful. I felt like I was amongst friends the entire evening, not at 'work'. Their friends and family sent them off with an amazing sparkler exit.
Jen + Trevor, thank you so much for having me photograph your day. It was incredible and looking through these images to curate your day had me reliving it all over again. I love you guys!!
