Travis and Samantha tied the knot at Orchard Creek Lodge
in Lincoln Ca. This golf course venue is perfect for a larger wedding. The waterfall feature on the course makes for a stunning location for photos and the site’s grand amphitheater overlooking the water was a wonderful backdrop to Travis and Samantha’s ceremony. Samantha wore a beautiful ball gown style wedding dress. Her bouquet of red and white roses mixed with white lilies made by Zhanna at Violette Fleurs
were picture perfect for a fairy tale wedding.
Disneyland played a big part in Samantha and Travis’s relationship. The love for all things Disney brought them back to Disneyland park again and again. As their love for each other grew, Samantha started to guess that Travis may propose during one of their trips. When he didn’t, she stopped trying to figure out when it might happen. Travis had bigger plans though, and on their first trip to Disney World he proposed in front of the Cinderella Castle at night.
Every detail of their wedding day was carefully planned and created. From the incredible larger-than-life fairy tale book made by Samantha’s dad and Uncle, to each table setting representing a different Disney story. Samantha even made her own wedding cake!
This wedding group was so much fun, there were some pretty talented dancers at this party, Personally, my favorite dance was watching Samantha and her guests as she guided them in a rendition of Thriller.
Samantha’s dad, Rob, surprised both Travis and Samantha by singing “I loved her first” as Travis and Samantha danced. It’s moments like these that remind me most why I love photographing weddings so much. There was so much love that filled every moment of this day and was evident in the blending of these two families.
…..and they lived happily ever after. Thank you Samantha and Travis for inviting us to be a part of this very special day. The journey has just begun.
