Chico Wedding Photography - Kevin&Karlee Married

You might remember these two from last year when we did their engagement shoot. Usually we plan our photography sessions close to sunset, but because of time constraint, we decided to do things a little bit differently. You see, Karlee and Kevin were visiting California to set up things for their "destination wedding" and they had to head back to the Mid-West shortly after we met. So we decided to do a sunrise engagement shoot! Stephen and I kept telling them, "good thing your from Missouri, because if not you would be freezing right now!" This was back in the Winter, and it was COLD! From our short time spent we Karlee and Kevin we knew their wedding was going to be so so so joyful and filled with laughter... and it was!

Karlee grew up in Chico and it was her dream to get married  in her hometown. It was so fun to see families and friends come together for an amazing time in Chico. We got a glimpse at their week-long itinerary and it was full of awesome Chico classics like Sierra Nevada and Bidwell Park :0

From the moment we stepped into Olivia James salon where Karlee got ready she was filled with joy and so eager to see Kevin already. When we made it over to the guy's hang out spot off Vallombrosa, Kevin was just as excited. These two are so positive to be around and really know how to show love to so many. Stephen and I were honored to capture this lovely couple's story through photography and videography. 

Thank you to all the amazing vendors who made this wedding a joyous occasion. And special thanks to Grant and Shirley Adams for opening their home and for all the many hours spent gardening and making things look so beautiful!!!

Right before Kevin headed to the first look we surprised him with a sweet note Karlee had written to her future husband.  It was such a special moment to capture and Kevin could not stop smiling as he read this thoughtful note! Hear him read it in the film at the bottom of this post!

The Little Red Hen did such a fabulous job with all the bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces! 

And off to the first look we went. This is such a special moment to photograph and both Karlee and Kevin were so eager to see each other, they were both grinning from ear to ear. Love how Karlee calls out to Kevin as she walks his direction, see it for yourself in the film below!

Kevin gave Karlee a bracelet and a lovely note right before we began portraits. Hear her read his loving words in the film at the bottom of this post :)

In honor of all Kevin and Karlee's nieces and nephews they made sure to have a bounce house and face painting for all the kiddos to enjoy, what a unique idea!
