Chico Wedding Photographer - Travis&Tonya

Travis&Tonya were married at a gorgeous private estate off Butte Creek Canyon road. There are so many things we loved about these two and their amazing wedding day! We love when our couples take the liberty to customize and alter their wedding day to make it fit them perfectly. Travis&Tonya did just that. They are such a relaxed couple, so it was only fitting that they had their cocktail hour before the wedding ceremony! Love when people aren't scared to break the "traditional wedding rules". Doing the cocktail hour early ensured they would get extra mingling time with their guests, and that it would a totally relaxed and easy transition in to the ceremony. Travis put his epic bartending skills on display for all their guests. They mixed and bottled a signature cocktail for all the guests with a photo of the two of them printed on the bottle cap! Instead of your traditional catering companies, they picked two local favorite food trucks, The Wander and Truck-a-Roni. The food trucks even provided yummy dessert for all guests to enjoy whenever they wanted!

These two have excellent taste and we were loving all Tonya's gorgeous details and carefully selected elements at their reception. 

Travis&Tonya wrote their own vows which were so personal and sweet. Their little nieces and nephews walked down the isle with heart shaped balloons tied to their wrists and hung out next to the bridal part. After the ceremony was over, guests enjoyed dinner from the food trucks and dancing under the stars. It's not a true party though until Tonya's dad busts out his "party shirts", what a hilariously awesome tradition!

Enjoy some of our favorites from the wedding day :D

Tonya designed the invitations and menu cards, they turned out so amazing!!

Tonya got ready at Hotel Diamond before heading to the Covered Bridge for the first look. Love the natural light that pours in through the windows at HD!
