The bride, Christine, and I go waaaay back to my first days as a transfer student at Sonoma State University. At the time, Sonoma State (SSU) had just opened a new set of "apartment-style" dormitories which housed four people in a four bedroom/four bath apartment with shared kitchen/living space. By luck, I was placed in the same dormitory as this gorgeous girl here:
Who knew that months later Christine would introduce me to her high school friend, David, who is now my husband!

|Ren Faire Turkey Legs - YUM!|
In short, I adore this girl to her very core...
Christine's wedding was held at the American River Resort in Coloma, California on a perfect May summer day.
The location backed directly up to the American River providing a feeling of serenity and nature.
Choosing a color palette inspired by the sunset, her bridesmaids wore pale yellow and carried a variety of sunflowers.
The bride imparted a vintage feel to her look by styling soft pin curled hair with a single flower, finishing the look with black winged eyeliner, corner lashes and a rich plum lip color (L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge in Everlasting Plum).
The day was a perfect collection of everything wonderful: Good Food, Good Friends, and Love...so much love.
Many congratulations to the bride and groom!
