Audra & Charlie : A wedding at Cinnabar Hills Golf Course

Oh time off, I forgot what you felt like! Tim's older brother Joe and his wife (and one of my new sisters!) Charna, were in town this weekend to head to Napa and taste wine and eat food and it just so happened that Tim and I were headed up there to visit my Uncle Charles who will be playing the role as officiant in our wedding to plan our ceremony- so we got to spend three lovely days with family, drinking and eating, and being merry! Long winded enough? It's enough to just say it was a great weekend!

Me, croquet, and love.

A couple of weeks ago Audra and Charlie tied the knot at the Cinnabar Hills Golf Course - I have know Audra since I was a baby- her mom and my mom went to high school together and I seriously can't imagine anyone else photographing her big day! Editing her images was rough- I kept tearing up... I think it just felt close to home.. seeing Audra as a bride made me realize that I'm going to be a bride! She is so freaking gorgeous and the both of them were such a joy to photograph.

Since moving up here last December I've photographed at only a handful of northern California venues but I was so surprised by the beauty of Cinnabar. I have to be honest, sometimes golf courses can be a challenge- ya know.... gazebos and manicured lawn isn't all its cut out to be - but Cinnabar has so many beautiful spots for lovely image making. :) Enough chat- onward!


I don't normally post family group shots but this one is near and dear to my heart :)
