Monday! Where do I even begin? At least I am caffeinated. Coffee, I love you. I was also given a homemade scone with asiago cheese and ham. Delish! Makes the morning a little easier that’s for sure. Monday is about to get easier for you too because today I have a long over due post for you – Alicia and Josh! Where can I even begin about these two? They are the absolute cutest together and their wedding was filled with so much excitement and love. I am honored I was there to capture the day.
Alicia and Josh were married last October in the yard of their beautiful home outside Sacramento. The wedding occurred right at that time when I was in between my old blog and this new, spiffier version so I never had the chance to post about them. Then this past week I realized it was their anniversary (already?? congrats you two!!) and anniversaries are also the perfect occasion for posting blogs. So I figured, better late than never, right?
Alicia and Josh wanted to create a backyard feeling for their wedding and there is really no better way to do that than to have your wedding at home. It creates the most personal experience and the guests feel completely at ease. I also think its nice to have everything you need close by when you are getting ready! They worked incredibly hard to get the yard ready and move things around so that they have their special day. Everything came together beautifully and I watched it unfold as all of the vendors set up while Alicia and Josh were getting ready.
Since Alicia is a huge animal lover they own a home with room to keep a few horses. We had a great time taking a few photos with one of her horses and Alicia also incorporated a country theme, complete with carriage, into the wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and as the went down the property lit up and it was a magical evening. Every guest had the most fantastic time dancing, eating cupcakes, and celebrating Alicia and Josh.
Alicia and Josh – happy anniversary to you! You guys are absolutely adorable together and looking back through your pictures put such a huge smile on my face! I had a blast at your wedding. I hope you have had a fantastic first year of marriage and I also hope you come visit soon! Now, on to the wedding…
