This Arden Hills Resort Wedding was absolutely wonderful! We had such a blast getting to be a part of Ashley and Josh’s big day and could not have asked for a better couple to capture!
The Bride and Groom
Ashley and Josh were so wonderful to work with. We have had the pleasure of being a part of a couple weddings within Ashley’s family and they are ALWAYS something we look forward to. These two were both so thoughtful, and so much fun to be around, and they truly have an amazing story. They met on the other side of the world, and while they had feelings for each other, with an eminent move to the states coming up, nothing could really happen. Then by chance, Josh moved back to the same area as Ashley a few years later and though he had always kept in touch, he saw the doors of opportunity open again, and asked her to meet him for coffee. This was the start (again) to a truly phenomenal relationship!
The Venue – Arden Hills Resort – Sacramento, California
This was such a fun venue to shoot at. It is really a gorgeous property, that has a country club feel to it, but really offers so much more than that. The main draw to this venue has to be the architecture, specifically of the bed and breakfast on the property. It’s a beautiful home (and a large one at that!) with an amazing staircase and tons of beautiful decorations. Add to that lush, beautiful gardens, and some amazing sunlight, and you have a recipe for some amazing shots!
The Wedding – Arden Hills Resort Wedding
The entire day took place on this wonderful property. The girls got ready in the upstairs of the house, while Josh and his guys were in the main building. A little later on, when Ashley was finished with hair and makeup, she slipped into her dress and was greeted by cheers and laughter from her bridesmaids. Then she walked down the central staircase to meet her father, which was a super touching moment. Finally she left to go see her soon to be husband, and they too shared a beautiful moment as they saw each other for the first time that day. Later, they were joined by tons of guests as the said their vows, and officially became husband and wife!
Then it was off to the reception, and it was a great one! They had an amazing candy bar, wonderful toasts, a beautiful video about their relationship, and an absolutely packed dance floor! We are so excited for these two, and were absolutely thrilled to be able to capture their Arden Hills Resort Wedding!
