Wedding Weekend Recap

Good day, blog friends.
♥ ♥
Today I have just a few photos from my nephew's wedding in California this past weekend. Oh my gosh, we had such a great time! The wedding was absolutely beautiful, weather was perfect, and spending time with our awesome family was just what our spirits needed.

The wedding and reception were held at Clovis Castle ~ a wedding venue on the outskirts of town. The rolling foothills made a stunning fall backdrop for this beautiful occasion.


This boy wanted to get dirty SO bad! I believe he managed to actually stay clean for the entire evening.


There were sweet little reminders that my mom was with us in spirit. Can you see the cross illuminated on the hill below? A few minutes after I took this photo the sun had dropped just enough that the cross was no longer visible.


My nephew wanted my brother {his uncle, Godfather, and friend} to perform their wedding ceremony. Tim did a beautiful job, and it was so lovely to witness a bride and groom exchanging their vows in such a loving and personal ceremony. It was awesome!


This is what love looked like this weekend: Cris and Mandi

Wow, so that was a whirlwind weekend with tons of love, laughter, photos, food, family, and driving. My head is a jumble of "things to do" as we prepare to host Thanksgiving dinner at our house in two and a half weeks! I'd love nothing more than to sit in front of this computer, editing photos and catching up on blogs today. Time to hit the yoga mat and get myself focused for a busy work day.

Wishing each of you a week filled with love,
laughter, photos, food, family, and very little driving.

Love how you captured the wedding but also the behind-the-scenes. The images that linger in the mind of some one who loves taking photographs.

It all looks so lovely Deb. I don't remember Clovis Castle from the days when my in-laws lived in Clovis - I'll have to go google it.
