Every once in awhile, you get the chance to photograph friends and that is one of my favorite things in the world. Now don't get me wrong, we LOVE all the weddings that we photograph, but there is something special about knowing a family well and being invited into their day, like we were with this wedding. To say we were honored, is an understatement. The Lundbergs are our friends. They were some of the first people that we met when we moved here and they have become like family to us. Embracing the good and the bad sides of us -- they love us well. Getting the privilege to photograph Anders and Ashley's wedding meant that perhaps we could serve them, because they tirelessly serve others ALL the time.
The wedding was held at the Shaffer Ranch, in North Chico. The day had a rustic, down to earth feel. And Anders and Ashley, well, they were just stunning. They were so happy to be getting married; so happy to walk back down the aisle as husband and wife, surrounded by 300 of their family and friends. I would say, the day was incredible.
Thank you Anders and Ashley. Thank you for letting us be there -- for being vulnerable and giving us the opportunity to photograph that. Thank you for being you. For being the kind of people that God can use to change this world. I know that you will have the opportunity to be even stronger, together. I just can't wait to see what God does through your marriage.
And thank you to the Lundbergs. Sometimes I don't know what to say, but thank you. Thank you for changing our lives; for the better.
Much, much Love to our friends and to people that we call family. We are so grateful not only to have been at your wedding, but to relive the moments here. And a huge congratulations to Anders and Ashley. This is just the beginning of something great!

These two decided to see one another before the wedding -- and I am so glad that they did!
It was a very large and beautiful bridal party... Loved the details from the girls...
Ashley put on her veil right before the wedding. She is stunning...
The ceremony was held on the lawn at the Ranch. Aren't they so happy?
Moments after the wedding...
So excited to be married :)
There were some very special moments exchanged between family members, who we just love so much!
Such a cute flower girl...
We had the opportunity to take a few more photos afterward... Loved the mustang and the light :)
And, it's reception time :)
Ashley envisioned very simple decor, but wait till you see some of these little details... A homemade italian soda bar? Yes please :) An actual mailbox for the cards. Such a good idea... Salt Water Taffy on each table... with burlap and lace.
The floral design was beautiful work done by Alli Leduc.
Some sweet dances between family members...
A photobooth can provide some great photos for us too :) And just a few of the many candids taken during the dance party :)
Such a fun sparkler send off -- and dont you love this last frame? Cheers to an amazing wedding day!
