To Serve and Protect – A Vintage California Wedding

 

This gorgeous wedding was out in Fresno, California just a few weeks ago.  I had such fun photographing this wedding for a childhood friend that I hadn’t seen in years- it was so fun to catch up and help her celebrate her special day!  There were  lovely vintage details everywhere you looked that will leave you with a smile on your face as will the infectious smiles you will see from our gorgeous bride and  sheriff groom.  The best part of my day was a gooey doughnut from the dessert bar and also an amazing location for pictures of the bride and groom at sunset. Hope you enjoy this beautiful wedding.  Congratulations Kathleen and Josh!
