Karina and David’s private ranch wedding is officially on the blog!
On Saturday, September 24, 2022 these two pronounced their love for each other, and God in front of all of their loved ones. Ceremony took place at the St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church in Petaluma, California. Prior to Karina walking down the aisle while getting ready with her bridesmaids, I asked the girls if David was a cryer. Immediately they said “yes!” It may sound weird, but I think it’s the most precious thing when the groom tears up as his bride walks down the aisle. The raw emotions, not caring about who’s watching. Seeing their face light up with nothing but pure love for their soon-to-be wife is probably what I look forward to the most during a wedding. And when I watched Karina walk through those church doors in her stunning Allure gown, I immediately turned to David who was already crying and my heart melted!
After the ceremony, everyone headed back to Karina’s family ranch for the reception. I took Karina and David’s engagement photos at their ranch as well and as we walked around the property, they showed me their horse arena. The horse area that would soon be completely cleaned out and turned into their reception area. And man, did it turn out absolutely beautiful! We ended the night with some gorgeous golden hour photos in their private vineyard.
Karina and David, I can’t explain how much I loved being apart of your wedding day. Your family reminds me so much of mine, so it was easy getting to talk and work with everyone there. Everyone was so welcoming, like we were apart of the family already. I pray for a lifetime of happiness for the both of you and your future family.
