Linda & Jason : Vizcaya Pavilion (Sacramento Wedding Photographer)

This past Saturday, Henry and I shot our first wedding of 2017 with Jason & Linda at Vizcaya Pavilion in midtown Sacramento and it was perfect in every way. I originally wanted to release a sneak peek only but I chose way too many images so here’s the full story of Linda & Jason’s fairytale wedding:

Henry and I arrived at Vizcaya to find the staff setting up for the wedding ceremony in the East Patio. We weren’t due to start until 2PM but we came a little early  to scope out the estate since this is our first time shooting here. And though it is in the middle of winter, everything about this wedding venue is gorgeous, from the fountain in the front to the semi-circular balcony to the tall glass windows throughout the house.

Since I always start each wedding coverage off with detail shots, we took advantage of the gazebo and hung Linda’s wedding dress there first. vizcaya-pavilion-sacramento-wedding-photographer-25vizcaya-pavilion-sacramento-wedding-photographer-26

While the girls and I were busy with the dress, Henry went off the find the guys:vizcaya-pavilion-sacramento-wedding-photographer-64vizcaya-pavilion-superhero-themed-wedding-photographer-4

Did you notice that Albert’s face is also on the box? Jason customized each gift box for each specific guy. Isn’t that so cool?

Yes, those are superhero aprons. And of course the guys had to model them.

Ooooh, look at Jason! Looking extra dapper. vizcaya-pavilion-sacramento-wedding-photographer-63

 

While Henry was out roaming the alleyways with the guys, I finished the wedding detail shots and started on getting photos with the girls:

The cutest part is that Thu played double duty that day. Not only was she Linda’s hairstylist, she was also one of Linda’s bridesmaids. So not only did she pamper Linda, Thu got pampered by the bride as well. One of the perks of having talented friends.

Linda’s reaction when she saw herself in the mirror for the first time. She said out loud,”Wow! This is real now. I look like a bride!”

The First Look:

Linda and Jason’s wedding ceremony was set for 5:30PM with the cocktail hour and reception to follow right after. Since we knew that it would be dark by the time the ceremony starts and that we won’t have any sunlight to get the soft natural light photos, we decided to have a first look after Linda is done getting ready so that we can take all of the formal bridal photos before the wedding ceremony starts.

As family is very important to Linda, she asked her family and Jason’s family to come early  to join them for formal photos.

Jason definitely got his height from his Dad.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the bride’s Mom get mistaken as one of the sisters. She is so pretty!

The Wedding Ceremony:

The good thing about photos is that you can’t feel the heat or the cold from when they were taken. Because it was freezing here! It got dark and it got dark quick! And once the sun went down, temperature dropped dramatically as well. So as the guests entered, everyone huddled on the seats nearest to the heater.

I remember this moment really clearly. After the introduction, without any thought or hesitation, Jason automatically pulled the chair out for Linda and waited for her to sit down. What a gentleman. #chilvaryisnotdead

The toast from the best man, Jason’s brother. “It’s rare that he calls me but one day, he called and said I met this girl. And I thought are we that close to talk about relationship now?”
