This past Saturday, Henry and I had the honor to documenting Shannen and Alfred’s big wedding day at Granite Bay Golf Club. I can’t wait to go through the whole gallery but here’s a sneak peek for now:
The day started with the bridal party getting ready at Staybridge Hotel in Folsom that is 20 minutes from Granite Bay Golf Club. Since we were allowed access to the venue 2 hours before the ceremony time, I arrived at 3:30 to scope out the ceremony site and the general areas that we are allowed to take photos in while Henry (my husband) finished setting up the flashes and equipments.
In the meantime, the bride and groom and their wedding party got ready in their own separate suite that is right next door to one another. The bridal suite was surprisingly really large and had lots of rich mahagony furnitures. One wall was filled with all sorts of books. It definitely screams “private golf club”.
Next door, the groomsmen were helping Alfred getting ready followed by his mother putting on the final touch to his attire. In the car ride with his and her Mom to the wedding venue, Alfred’s Mom told me that she has 2 sons. Alfred is the younger of the two. Her husband, Henry (who has the same name as my husband), passed away several years ago, but I will meet her oldest son, Chris, later as he is one of the groomsmen.
Then finally! We were ready for the FIRST LOOK!
It was 4PM and everywhere was so bright. So we hid under the shade of these tall bushes to do most of the bridal party photos. Aren’t these bridesmaid dresses so elegant? Are you a fan of everyone matching or have the girls choose their own style to match their body type as long as they stay in a particular color scheme?
THE WEDDING RECEPTION with the bride and groom dancing on the clouds.
Congratulations, Alfred and Shannen! We wish you many years of happiness and laughter together, filled with good food adventured!!!! Thank you for trusting us to capture such a perfect day!
More to come soon! I promise!
