Dave and Kalisha's Sacramento Wedding

Dave and Kalisha’s send off!

Loving the colors Dave and Kalisha picked for their Sacramento wedding! We had the pleasure of working with Dave and Kalisha on their wedding this last year. We enjoyed being a part of the memories that were made and the simplicity of everything. Thanks to Randy Collier – Photographic Design for the pretty in our post! He was awesome to work with. Randy is located in Utah but Kalisha’s family get all their pictures done by him so had to have him for her Sacramento wedding.

Dave and Kalisha had their ceremony earlier in the day at the Sacramento LDS Temple in Rancho Cordova and then followed their reception at Granite Bay Golf Club. Both are beautiful places! It doesn’t take much to decorate Granite Bay Golf Club but their flower choices made the room pop. Granite Bay Golf Club provided the food which was fun and unique. We had a crepe’s station, an ice cream sundae bar and a cheese, cracker and bread station.

We also had a delicious cake provided by Freeport Bakery (the piping work was exquisite). I would take desserts instead of dinner any day!

One of our favorite parts of their wedding was Dave’s toast/description of why he picked their first dance. He was put in charge of the task and we think he hit it our of the park! Kalisha is very well cultured with a musically inclined family who love art and Dave is sarcastic, funny and easy going. Kalisha often wondered how they were together because they were so different. Dave told us a story and I will try my best not to ruin it:

One day as they were driving in the car Kalisha mentioned how they had nothing in common. Dave replied with, ” Would you say we have no common ground to start from?” Kalsiha replied “yes” (and slightly puzzled to the question). He then replied with, “What about “Breakfast at Tiffany’s?” She knowing the movie replied with, “yes, what about it?” Totally confused as to what Dave was doing (and playing right into his plan). Dave then replied with, “As I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it. Well, that’s the one thing we’ve got.” We are not sure she caught on right away but it came down to the song, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. He joked how he could have picked a “Thousand Years by Christina Perri” but that song was dumb and he only liked it when she sang it. This song was perfect (besides the fact it talked about breaking up). He sent us the song he wanted to use of an instrumental version he made of Breakfast at Tiffany’s which had so much meaning (without the breaking up part).

One last shout out to Dave’s mom Laurie (who we got to work closely with), she made these super cute streamers for their send off. She said she is not that talented and enlisted a few friends to help, they turned our fabulous ladies!

Thanks Dave and Kalisha for letting us share in your special day. We wish you an eternity of happiness.

Sacramento Wedding

Frank and Liz’s Sacramento Wedding

Sacramento wedding {Backyard}

Sacramento WeddingFrank and Liz have an amazing family. Both Barbara and Steve were an absolute pleasure to work with and we really enjoyed getting to know them. Frank and Liz live out of state so we got to work a lot with Barbara and Steve on the details of their wedding. Their wedding was an intimate Sacramento wedding in her parents backyard. Love the pictures, the camera ate Liz up, she was amazing in front of the camera.

We just blogged in our last post about our favorite person and are excited to blog about her again, the oh so talented Rachelle of Rachelle Photography. She does amazing work and this wedding is NO EXCEPTION! Loved the details and the beauty she caught of this Sacramento wedding.

Some of our favorites: Liz’s brother who was the Ring “Bea-er”. Her cake topper: Liz made a picture of her and her future husband when she was a little girl and her mom saved it and they made it her cake topper (very fitting since they both work in the art world). Her dad married them: Liz’s dad Steve is a retired judge so he married them, one of the best ceremonies we have heard, so touching! These all added a nice person touch.

 They hired Magpie Caterer’s for their food which means Brandon was in heaven! They also have a 2 cafe’s so if you don’t get the pleasure of having them at a wedding then you must go to their Magpie Cafe on R Street in downtown Sacramento for some delicious food or to Yellowbill Cafe and Bakery on 14th street for breakfast and desserts. Their chocolate chip cookies are my favorite!

We were excited to offer market lights and paper lanterns to add to the ambiance of the wedding. Their wedding took place in the beginning of August and we had a crazy thunder and lighting storm during the reception. It was so weird but it didn’t put a damper on this wedding! We just cleared the tables quickly and threw table clothes over our speakers and kept rocking while the guests moved inside. Definitely one for the books! Thanks Liz, Frank, Barbara and Steve for letting us share in your special day.

Jordan and Victoria’s “Super” Wedding – {Timber Creek Ballroom}

Jordan and Victoria’s wedding at Timber Creek Ballroom

Cutest couple!

Cutest couple!

Can I tell you how much we ADORE Jordan and Victoria (and all their friends)?! These two are the best! Plus their wedding was nothing short of spectacular. We enjoyed every moment planning and work with Jordan and Victoria on their wedding entertainment. Of course our most favorite person ever Rachelle of Rachelle Photography took these fabulous pictures and captured the details perfectly. Jordan and Victoria had the perfect team of vendors, the ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Timber Creek Ballroom at Sun City Roseville (we love the new addition to the ceremony site), Christopher Nesbitt with a Five Star Ceremony was there Minister who married them (he is always professional and fun, we just love him) and last but not least we had Shelton’s Wedding Cake Designs provide their wedding cake and let us tell you, it was totally Jordan and Victoria (ok maybe just Victoria). We were excited to uplight the ballroom as well to create a romantic atmosphere with some beautiful purple lighting. One of our favorite wedding of the year! Thanks Jordan and Victoria for letting us share your special day, here’s to many many years of happiness!

Oh we do have to mention how we know this is true love: Jordan’s toast. Victoria is a die hard Twilight fan, we mean die hard! With that said Jordan was sure to incorporate Edwards quote to Bella in his toast, it was so sweet. That’s how we know they are made for each other. 🙂
