2014 Fall Mini Sessions-rgb

I’ve photographed a number of weddings at the Flower Farm Inn and each one is uniquely different and special, just like the couples who plan them. Larisa and Eric’s did not disappoint. Going a bit against the grain, Larisa chose blue and gold as their colors and the end result, along with their thoughtful decor, was an elegant display that was warm and inviting. Opting out of a standard wedding party, the couple embraced each of their guests with just as much importance. Photography was their most valued part of their day (no pressure for me! Haha) so we were able to set a lot of time aside for photos. I adore this couple (they’re runners too!) and am so excited to see how their love and life unfolds.

You’re beautiful Larisa! Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-009 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-010 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-011

I love it when couples decide to have a first look.  We have so much more time to photograph and this also allows couples to have these moments be a little more private. You know, like not in front of a hundred guests.  Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-012

I loved the bouquet!

This lemonade stand was not only super adorable with all it’s details but the lemonade was delicious – I can attest!  Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-029

There isn’t only one way to say “I love you” Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-030

I loved their unique centerpieces of twinkle light branches.  They created a nice ambiance during the reception.  Here’s a fun tidbit:  The pickle jars used as centerpieces were real jars of pickles puchased at Costco. The couple gave the pickles to friends and family to eat and asked they return the jars for their wedding.

The bride shares the aisle with two of the most important men in her life. Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-035 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-036 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-037

They included a unique tree ceremony during their vows.  The pear tree was given water from Folsom Lake and the couple’s non-chlorinated pool.  Soil was shared from each of their fathers’ backyards.  The tree will be a wonderful addition to their backyard and, as it is nourished, grows and deepens its roots, so will Eric and Larisa’s love and relationship grow in their marriage. Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-038

I had to include this image as it shows Eric’s personality… “hmmm, should I say yes?”  Yes!

They surprised us with a dip!  Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-040

The custom pie topper caught the eye of one little guy! Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-060

The toasts were tailor-made to bring smiles and tears. Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-061 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-062

Here, Larisa’s mom is saying she picked a good guy because he had a car, a job and a bike.  Superhero status for Eric!  This was a fun moment.

The aforementioned twinkle sticks brought such sparkle! Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-065

The couple invited their guests to dance with them during their first dance.  I just love this moment in black and white. Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-066 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-067

Their photography was one of their most valued parts of their wedding so we were able to ensure lots of time in front of the camera.  I pulled them out at dusk, just after dinner, for this final session of the day.  The red truck is so fun!  Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-068 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-069

The vines are spectacular. Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis Photography-070

Time to party!  TJ the DJ said this was the longest conga line he had ever seen.  Everyone got into it!

  • Larisa Perryman - Simply amazing images, Heather! I love that you captured every detail in a beautiful way, and you even let us do some awesome light painting at the end! Working with you was our pleasure, and I look forward to treasuring these images forever!

  • Terri Grosse - As the Mother of the Bride, my heartfelt appreciation to you for such a successful documentation of such a great event! The day was awesome! Your photos are absolutely beautiful! Of course the bride and groom are pretty darn happy which showed! When I got married my photographer showed up over an hour late so I fired him. I have no good pictures. Pictures are so much more important than most people realize. Anyone choosing you for their event will be very impressed. Thank you so much for these beautiful memories and your team going above and beyond. Terri Grosse

When I first met Kim and her mom to discuss her wedding photography I knew we were a match.  Kim’s down-to-earth and kind demeanor resonated with me and I recognized we would work very well together.  I was so excited when she ultimately chose me.  I met Mike for the first time at their engagement session and could tell just how much this couple love and respect each other.  And, of course, I love the Flower Farm Inn and knew their wedding would be lovely.  The couple’s affinity for Dutch Bros coffee is highlighted with a coffee bar that served specialty drinks to guests and the chosen yellow and cream color scheme really pops and is oh so cheery.  Details about their wedding are shared at the end of this post.

Kim and Mike opted for a Pie bar as they both don’t love cake.  All of the pies were handmade by Mike’s mom.  While I didn’t enjoy a slice myself, I heard they were delicious! Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-018

All of the silverware and plates were eco-friendly and compostable.  What a unique and earth friendly thought! Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-019

Favors to guests were homemade jams.  And Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-020 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-021 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-022 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-023 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-024 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-025 Flower Farm Inn Wedding Loomis-026

I love the water… oceans, lakes, the sound of rain… so any chance to photograph near it makes me a happy girl!  Courtney and Brad selected the Spinnaker in Sausalito for their wedding.  The day was gorgeous and so was Courtney.  Brad looked handsome in his suit.  Their genuine love for one another radiates.  They are one of my all-time easiest couples to photograph.  Please enjoy a highlight of their coastal San Francisco Bay wedding.
