Natalie + Dave

Natalie and Dave wore their faith so beautifully, it beamed from their souls, and because of their amazing faith; we have never felt closer to God. Natalie and Dave had their ceremony and reception at a private estate in Oakdale, CA. This venue was like no other that we’ve attended nor photographed. The way I explained it to the owners as I was thanking them for allowing to be the photographer, went something like this; “Your property and home, and everything you’ve built here is beyond beautiful. It’s beauty is best described to be something like a natural essence of Disneyland. There are so many neat and amazing things to look at, there’s just no possible way to photograph this place and get the same photo every time. Even if you turn an inch, the whole place changes in it’s beauty. It’s amazing.”. When explaining, it totally came out a lot more “giddy school girl” with words all jumbled, but they hugged me and welcomed me back any time for any reason. This venue was definitely an amazing experience all in it’s own.  The owners, husband and wife, take all proceeds from weddings and donate to a charity of their choice. Quite wonderful beings they were, which is super fitting because Natalie and Dave were just as amazing, and so were family and friends. Everything about their whole day went just splendidly, and as a photographer I could not be more happy with the whole experience! Oakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyOakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyOakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyOakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyOakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyOakdale CA wedding photography by Alicia Gines PhotographyCollage 7Collage 8Collage 10Collage 11Collage 12Collage 13Collage 14Collage 15
