Brittany and Glenn were married on April 17th, 2011 – a beautifully sunny day with a vivid sunset and a slight cool breeze in the evening. I love me a veil flowing in some wind.
I was fortunate to shoot this lovely couple’s engagement session back in October, but was truly bummed to learn they already had a Wedding Photographer picked out. Needless to say, I had no idea I would end up photographing their amazing wedding.
A month before the date, Brittany and Glenn informed me that their Wedding Photographer could no longer shoot their wedding. I. Would. Freak. OUT! If that happened to me. Luckily, I had done their engagement photos and they thought of me 🙂 And I jumped at the chance to step in and take their photos.
Brittany prepared for the wedding at Le Rivage Hotel in Sacramento, CA while Glenn prepared at his parent’s home in Folsom. The girls were so calm before the wedding – and so, so happy. I love that Brittany was as calm and collected as could be. I know that I will be on the verge of tears every five minutes.
We all took a limo to the Old Sugar Mill and it was a fun ride. In the limo, after the champagne was popped open, and for the first time that day, I saw a glimmer of nervousness in Brittany’s eyes. It was so fun to watch.
The Old Sugar Mill is simply incredible. Brick, wine barrels, dim lighting, high ceilings, an expansive vineyard and an OLD SUGAR MILL, complete with awesome broken windows and bare steel beams from floor to ceiling. I couldn’t ask for a cooler place to photograph a wedding. So here is the sneak peak. I could have posted a thousand pictures, but I would have been up ALL night. Also, I want to say thank you to my 2nd shooter Jon, who helped me tremendously on Brittany & Glenn’s big day. I’ll post links to their complete wedding collection when it’s up on their personal website. Enjoy!
