Rancho Camulos is a wedding photographer’s dream.
There are so many amazing spaces and details to work with and the staff allows you to really embrace everything the venue has to offer. Cheryl and Sara’s wedding was filled with romantic details that complimented the rustic ranch perfectly.
I could not get enough of Cheryl and Sara’s bouquets! They matched each other’s personalities. The wooden blocks have their parents’ wedding pictures on them.
Each bride put on her dress separately with the help of family and friends.
Once Sara was ready, she went outside to see her dad.
Then it was time for the brides to see each other in their dresses for the first time!
My second photographer, Jessica and I couldn’t help but giggle with happiness during Cheryl and Sara’s First Look. They kept complimenting each other and their excitement was contagious.
“You look so pretty!”
“I love your hair!”
“I love your dress!”
I love YOUR dress!”
I seriously could have just spent the rest of the day in that moment.
As Cheryl and I were walking downstairs we turned around and saw Sara looking out a window.
We both gasped at her beauty.
Then of course we needed to take pictures by the window!
Cheryl’s parents had arrived so we set up a moment for Cheryl’s dad to see her in her wedding dress.
After a little water break, it was time for the gorgeous wedding ceremony underneath a large tree filled with golden fall leaves.
Rancho Camulos has an old winery on it’s property.
It’s normally fenced in for protection, but during weddings the security guard opens the gate for you to take pictures!
Sara had a model moment with some vintage farming equipment as a tribute to her grandpa.
Photographing Cheryl in the orange groves was the highlight of my 2014 wedding season.
I was basically jumping up and down out of excitement and Cheryl laughed and went along with it. Seriously, how often do you get to photograph an incredible bride twirling around in a wedding dress at sunset in an orange grove?
It was perfection.
After all that excitement, we still had their wedding reception to get to!Cheryl and Sara, I adore the two of you. Congratulations on your beautiful wedding, marriage and new life together!
