Callaway Winery Wedding – Sarah + Josh Married!

I am so excited to share this wedding today! Not only are Sarah and Josh a ridiculously good looking couple, but they were so much fun! I had the pleasure of getting to know both of their moms before the wedding came. They all joined us for the engagement session, and we had a blast walking around Downtown Riverside together with these two all dressed up! Sarah’s mom Debbie was a huge support through her whole wedding planning process, and since she was at most of our meetings, I got to know her really well and just adore her! Spending the whole morning with Sarah and Debbie before the ceremony was so much fun. It was such a comfortable and welcoming environment, and everyone was incredibly kind and sweet all day. It means the world to me that they valued me and asked me to be a part of their big day!

How pretty are Sarah’s rings?! And I love how classy and sleek Josh’s is. The all look so good together!

Sarah really loved the bridal suite at Callaway. When we did our venue meet, we realized that with all the very special ladies in her life, it would be a tight squeeze when she was getting into her gown. We ended up doing something really special to accommodate this, and my second photographer took the bridesmaids for some extra photos of them all dressed up while Debbie got Sarah into her wedding gown. They shared a few moments alone together and prayed before everything got busy. Then we let all the bridesmaids in the suite for a first look and they were in awe at Sarah’s beauty all dressed up! It was such a special moment for both Sarah’s mom and for all of her bridesmaids, and I’m so happy we all decided together to do that! (This is why I love doing venue meets with my clients! We get to figure all of these little things out before the day comes, and everything is just so peaceful!).

Sarah’s Jr. Bridesmaid Ryan was the sweetest! She took such good care of Sarah all day, and these photos of her holding her gown are a little reminder of how she cared for Sarah all day. I love it!

Josh looked so handsome in his all black tuxedo with a white tie and pocket square! I normally go to meet the boys and notice their pocket squares need a little adjusting (those three folds can be tricky at first!), but Josh and his guys already looked sharp by the time I went to see them! I’m pretty sure this was Amanda Sweet’s doing with A Sweet Company. She was one of the most attentive wedding coordinators I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! She didn’t just do setup and vendor checkins, she actually attending to the bride and groom to make sure every detail was covered, she brought them water during photos before the ceremony and served them wine and beer after the ceremony. She was on it all day! Such a rare find.

Josh served our country in the military and Sarah honored him by attaching his dog tags to her bouquet. I love all the little details that make a wedding so special and unique.

And look at her ring!

From the bride:

“Our wedding day was all I could have dreamed of. My favorite moment was being able to see my almost husband, standing blindfolded in the barrel room we would later celebrate in, right before our ceremony. This was the most special moment to spend time together and stop all the hustle just minutes before we would walk down the aisle, to pray. That was definitely the one part of the day I cried the most! I would plan my wedding day time and time again as it was such a memorable experience. My husband and I have never felt so much love and support from family, friends, and God as we did that day, and I so very thankful to all that were involved.”
