Hey there! Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the internet. Here you will find recent weddings and engagements we have photographed, editorial shoots, personal posts, tips for our couples and education for other photographers. Enjoy!
This Quail Ranch wedding in Simi Valley, CA is one of our all time favs! Katie and Eric also happen to be our FAVORITE couple! They are the absolute sweetest and their zest for life is contagious! Upon meeting them they make you feel included and appreciated. They were an instant hit with us and we knew their wedding day was going to be one to remember. With Wedding Kate at the forefront, and working with Katie, not a single detail was left untouched. From Katie’s pink Hayley Paige wedding gown, Eric’s white leather bowtie, and the gorgeous reception details, this wedding has stylish written all over it. Rustic weddings have been popular from sometime now, but this was no ordinary ‘rustic’ wedding. The elegance seen throughout their entire day is one to make you envy every choice you made with your own wedding.
Katie’s pink Hayley Paige gown is one to make every bride jealous. And the photos really don’t do it justice! The deep v cut in the front is the perfect amount of sexy and yet incredibly classy. The long train just accentuates this already stunning gown.
Katie totally had a bride’s man, and he was a crack up!
Katie’s first look with her dad were the sweetest! They are super close and it was such a special moment shared between them.
Katie was so excited to see Eric for their first look. Both of their reactions were just the CUTEST!
The romantics are one of our favorite parts of every wedding day! Getting that intimate time with just the bride and groom makes for such pretty photos. They forget everyhting else going on around them and just focus on each other. Thats when the tender moments, the soft touches happen.
Their ceremony was set under a beautiful oak tree with an arbor decorated with the prettiest roses and greenery. While guests waited an acoustic guitar played in the background.
The reception area was just magical! Being set under an enormous oak tree with chandeliers hanging down, lights strung above, and the beautiful decor put together by Wedding Kate it was the epitome of rustic elegance and luxury.
The icing on the cake…driving away in a vintage Rolls Royce. PERFECTION.
FROM THE BRIDE:
From our very personal ceremony officiated by a dear family friend, to the awesome best man and maid of honor speeches and all the love that surrounded us that day, I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. It was everything we wanted it to be – elegant and sophisticated, yet personal and relaxed. While everything came together in the end, I couldn’t have done it without my incredible vendors. My wedding planner, Katie, was a total angel and we had the best time with my glam squad, Cheek to Cheek Artistry. There wasn’t a single thing I’d change – the flowers, the food, our amazing photographer and videographers – everyone was a dream and helped us have the best day we could have asked for.
