Chico Wedding Photographer, Bella Rosa Farms: MR. & MRS. Spencer!

There is nothing quite like photographing a wedding for someone who has been a longtime friend. I have known Jordon since elementary school and was so excited when he and Lauren asked me to be their wedding photographer!

They are both such warm and kind people and their wedding really reflected those qualities. It was such a joy to be a part of their day!

Our day began at the historical Hotel Diamond here in Chico, Ca. where we met with Lauren and her lovely wedding party. We whisked her dress away for photos and were awestruck when we opened her dress bag— her Art Deco inspired dress was such a stunning surprise as was her custom made head piece and classic jewelry. Hotel Diamond created a beautiful backdrop for her wedding attire.

Lauren and Jordon chose Bella Rosa Farm as their wedding venue; a first for us to photograph and we were certainly not disappointed! From the charming creek, old pickup truck, and tree fort to the outdoor dance floor, lantern strewn trees, and vintage furniture scattered amongst the grounds we were enchanted!

What was the most enchanting, however, was the bride and groom’s First Look. The way that Lauren and Jordon compliment and treasure each other was very clearly represented in the touching moments they spent together before their ceremony. They were up for anything and so beautiful to photograph! Jena and I had so much fun laughing and joking with them as they happily climbed trees, clambered into trucks, and simply had fun having their pictures taken! They chose to keep the ceremony itself short and sweet before finishing up photos with their hilarious (and quite photogenic!) wedding party and moving on to the reception.

The reception had wonderful food, great dancing, and some very heartfelt toasts given by family in honor of the newlyweds.

We would also like to give a big shoutout to their amazing wedding coordinator Veronica Enns owner and operator of The 530 Bride, She and her team were not only helpful to the bride and groom but also to us! They were professional, organized, and (most importantly to us) very friendly!

Lauren and Jordon, thank you so much for letting me capture all of the loving kindness of your wedding day! We love you guys

Mr. And Mrs. Lucanic!

Upon meeting this couple I could see how they compliment each other.  During their ceremony their officiant/friend said a few words about the relationship between Jim and Megan, he spoke about how when Megan spoke of Jim she would light up, and for a quiet person she sure had a lot of good things to say.  As for Jim people openly spoke about the kindness and love he shares with Megan and how he has clearly fallen head over heels for her.  Their story of how they met was wonderful and was explained during a rap from their bridesmaid Ashley,  She spoke about how Megan transferred to chico dispatch and she caught Jim's eye.  It was just a little time before they would be walking down the isle and sharing their vows.  So here we are, please enjoy Jim and Megan's wedding day!
