Paulina + Chad // Cathedral of Blessed Sacrament + Grand Island Mansion

G96A2923.jpg

Paulina and Chad are a rare breed. Both have that hard-to-find combination of hard working, compassionate, thoughtful, and humility are simultaneously the most hilarious people you’ll ever meet. Oh, and there’s also the fact that they are two of the most stunningly beautiful people on the planet.

I’ve been waiting for this wedding for what seemed like ages. The day began at the Citizen’s Hotel, where both the bride and the groom got ready and had views overlooking Downtown Sacramento. From there, we walked to the ceremony, where they had a traditional Catholic wedding at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. The Bride and groom saw each other for the first time, said their vows, took communion, and exchanged rings. After the ceremony, we moved over to the reception. For those who’ve never been to the Grand Island Mansion…Well, let me tell you. It’s straight up magical. Right on the delta on the outskirts of Sacramento, it's a gorgeous four-story Parisian-style mansion that’s the perfect place for holding your reception.

I TRULY couldn’t be happier for the bride and groom! [who are currently honeymooning in the Dominican Republic] A most sincere congratulations to Mr and Mrs. Ratcliffe. Your day was so dang beautiful and I am so honored to have shared it with you.

Amber and Camden’s big day felt like a giant party with all of their best friends that just happened to include them getting married. If you know them personally, you also know that you can’t help but have a goooood time right alongside them. I instantly knew when I met with Amber that we were going to jive (I don’t think I’ve ever said that word before?) and was so excited once the wedding day finally came.

I talk a lot about finding a good getting ready space for brides - preferably one that has really good natural light: think big windows. Amber was able to find the perfect Airbnb to rent for getting ready just a few floors up above her wedding venue, so it was really efficient to have everything all in one place. Then, when it was go-time, she was already on site!

The day truly went off without a hitch and the night ended with some Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls. Like I said, my kind of people. <3
