Lizzy and Evan’s timeless Northern California Wedding was one for the books!
Not only did I have an absolute blast. But, fell in love with the feeling of joy that filled their space making this wedding in particular so magical. It was everything that one-true-love fairytales are made of and more.
When I started talking to Lizzy and Evan this world was still pretty disheveled and riddled with uncertainty. A year ago, they were in lockdown in Australia which left them unsure whether or not they would actually be able to travel for their 2022 Northern California Wedding.
However, these two were troopers and kept planning. If we are being honest, props to them for planning an international wedding in the midst of a pandemic. They deserve at least 12 gold stars.
In November 2021, we were actually able to have the most beautiful engagement session in Sacramento! Check them out HERE. By this time we were almost certain they’d be able to make the dream of their intimate timeless Northern California Wedding possible!
Between the time of their engagement photos and their NorCal wedding, they actually tied the knot in Australia. The photos from their special day were to DIE for, and it brought me so much excitement for their CA wedding.
Lizzy + Evan’s vision for their day was so elegant and classy. I love this timeless look for any wedding day. And trust me… they did such an amazing job!
Lizzy and Evan… WHAT A WEDDING.
In July 2022, it was finally time for Lizzy and Evan’s backyard-style wedding at Monte Verde Inn in Foresthill, CA. Although this was their second ceremony, it was just as intimate as the first.
Lizzy’s dress was one like I had never seen! It was second-hand from GretaKate (are you kidding me?? What an amazing find!?) It had the most amazing large floral detail all over with a classy square neck! Talk about classy… Evan’s look screamed luxe in his classy black tux. It doesn’t get more timeless than that!
As Lizzy was putting her finishing touches together, she had the most sentimental first look with her father. The emotions that took place were some I will never forget and probably some of my favorite photos I have ever taken. This moment really set the tone for their day and I could not wait to see all the love pour out onto Lizzy and Evan throughout the night.
Their ceremony was so sweet and there was not a dry eye as Lizzy and Evan said their “i-do’s”. I was blown away by the luscious, green ceremony site that was accented with beautiful florals. After an intimate ceremony filled with friends and family, Lizzy and Evan were married AGAIN!
Carrying on with their timeless theme they had the most amazing vintage Ford waiting for them! We took some STUNNING photos while cocktail hour kicked off!!
As the night progressed, many tears were shed, loving speeches were made, glasses were cheered and lots of celebratory hugs were made! It had been several years since Evan had seen his closest friends and family as he had moved to Australia several years before. This called for an incredible celebration to say the least!
Between the beautiful emotions that come with weddings and an amazing reunion, it was an incredibly sentimental day for everyone!
Some drinks and an outfit change later, (Lizzy’s second dress was a stunning two-piece from BHLDN) the newlyweds were ready to dance the night away! Let me tell you, I absolutely LOVE weddings with live bands. Truly, I believe that live music brings an incredible vibe that cannot be created any other way! This band was incredible and brought the dance floor to life!!
There are so many amazing things I could continue to say about this day! But, let me just end with a huge thank you to Lizzy and Evan for trusting me to capture their day. I appreciate them loving on me so well during the entire crazy process!
I will be raving about them and their fun, energetic, and timeless day forever!!!
