Crystal & Marcos’ Wedding | Sacramento Private Estate Wedding Photographer

This past Saturday, I had the honor of capturing Crystal & Marcos’ wedding ceremony that took place at her sister-in-law’s backyard. I met Crystal & Marcos 6 months ago when I took their family’s photos right before Christmas. C&M knew each other back in high school but like most people, they went their separate ways. It wasn’t until years later that faith brought them back into each other’s lives. By then, Marcos has a daughter named Cecilia and Crystal has a daughter named Alyssa. Together, they have a third daughter name Bri. So for their wedding, they have not just 1, 2 but 3 beautiful flower girls.

So really, Crystal and her family & friends literally only had 4 months to plan this whole celebration event!!!! They went with a Western theme so haystacks were used for sitting at the ceremony area. There was mason jars hanging on the trees. Flower vases were placed inside boots after boots after boots. It also happens that Marcos’ sister has a stable on the property as well so we got to borrow one of her horses, Pandora, for some of the formal photos. wedding direction signDSC_1334wedding details DSC_0764DSC_0776DSC_0676DSC_0875

Marcos started smearing cake onto Crystal’s face and the next thing you know, they had their first “fight” as husband & wife. And it was oh-so-entertaining! They had cake all over their faces. DSC_1654DSC_1658

What a joyous day! My heart skips a beat  still when I scroll through all the photos. They looked so happy and handsome and they were surrounded by so many people who were thrilled to see them united.
