Anna and Brian held their Old Homestead wedding under redwood trees serving as the perfect setting for a warm summer celebration, and added to it with several handmade items including their lace backdrop used for the ceremony. They chose Crockett for their wedding because it has been home for many generations (Anna’s grandfather has a Bridge named after him!) and has special meaning. They also desired a low key wedding, love the outdoors (they’re both avid abalone divers which they incorporated into their decor), and enjoy IPAs with solid BBQ – my kind of people 🙂
Despite only staying for 4 hours, the day was filled with all the emotion and energy of a full wedding day, and definitely had its share of great moments and great pieces of storytelling for the day. Both parent dances were especially heart warming to watch, and it was so cute seeing the ladies come together to share in the moment to help create one of my favorite father daughter reactions I’ve captured.
After such an emotional couple of dances, it was great to see everyone unwind on the dance floor and enjoy themselves, as the kids went wild with their acrobatic dance poses (including fish pose in yoga haha) while the adults got pretty hyphy to the music 🙂
When it comes to the dance floor, I love getting within inches of the person, to try to capture the feeling and energy of that song. Sometimes, people get a little self conscious about me being so close…but its awesome when I can just shoot as I want since the person is simply lost in the music and the moment…which was the case with this party. The ideal wedding day is supposed to be fun and care free (as evident in the first photo!) and Anna and Brian’s wedding was just that.
