Neighborhood Church Wedding - Chico Wedding Photographer - Mason&Leah
Where do we even start with this one! It's always a treat when we get to do wedding photography for our close friends! It makes the wedding day just that much more special, and we loved being a part of capturing the magic of Mason&Leah's day through the lenses of our cameras.
From the getting ready to goodbyes, Mason&Leah's wonderful wedding day was filled with a lot of emotion, but also an overwhelming sense of peace. An atmosphere of love and friendship surrounded these two as many friends and family came to Neighborhood Church to celebrate with them. As the morning unfolded, Leah's contagious laughter and excitement spread to everyone around. All the while, Mason's anticipation to see his lovely bride built minute by minute!
Get ready for a tear jerker, Mason&Leah's first look at Neighborhood Church was such a joy to photograph! We ALL teared up during this intimate moment shared before the wedding ceremony between this perfectly paired couple. They were overjoyed to finally be together, and beyond excited that today was finally the day!
Yes, yes of course we scheduled in time to make a stop at In-N-Out, a favorite spot of Mason's! That burger we got just as a "prop" actually hit the spot perfectly as he hadn't eaten all day.
We were then reunited with Mason&Leah's bridal party, including close friends, Leah's sister and Mason's two equally tall brothers.
Officiant and friend of many, Kyle Walling led the groups in a private prayer of thanks and blessing just minutes before the ceremony commenced.
You may kiss the bride...but first, let me take a selfie! :D
The reception was a true celebration, including a feast of delicious food, a piñata, and dance-offs on Mason&Leah's handcrafted dance floor.
Best man Jeff's speech may have been a hard act to follow, but Lydia knocked it out of the park, giving a speech that brought everyone to tears! There is something so special about the forever bond between sisters.
Happy married life you two! It was a true honor to capture your wedding day through photography!
