This October we had the pleasure of photographing Noemi and Sam's wedding. While we started at Noemi's parents home, we were headed to Le Rivage Hotel along the riverbanks of the Sacramento River for the ceremony and reception. Le Rivage is located at 4800 Riverside Boulevard. Sacramento, CA 95822
Team Facia Bella (make-up) and De La Muse (hair) did an amazing job!
While Cory and I were with Noemi getting ready, the rest of our crew was downstairs with the guys. It was nice to have the entire wedding party together as the day started. Noemi and Sam wanted to see each other before the ceremony. It allowed for them to enjoy the drive with the wedding party in the limo all together.
Noemi's dress was a one shoulder design...perfect for Noemi's sense of style and her personality.
I love when you see the "look" of a bride when she first sees the groom as she walks towards him during the ceremony.
Noemi's father started the ceremony off with a prayer. I love this photo for some reason that I can't seem to put into words.
Dare I say the weather for an October day was even a bit hot?! The clouds and blue sky were a perfect backdrop to a ceremony along the riverbanks of Le Rivage.
This is probably my second most favorite moment during ceremonies. When the happy bride and groom walk out together for the first time as a married couple.
Noemi warned me that the cake table was going to be awesome - and she was right! I love the apples in contrast to my favorite flower - Gerbera Daisies.
We were able to get some photos of Noemi and Sam before the ceremony and then again just before sunset. Here are just a few of my favorites.
Don't you just love the architectural feel to this next one?
Teresa took this candid photo - when we were done doing some of our photos before the ceremony, walking back to the hotel....Noemi just radiated this glow that all brides do.
How a couple holds hands is so unique and very intimate. I think I could stare at this photo for a long time.
This is one of the last images we took of the day. Smiles, Laughs, Happiness. Be sure to watch the slideshow by clicking here (or click the below image). Enjoy!
Noemi & Sam - We really enjoyed being a part of your wedding day and getting to know you. We can't wait to get together again soon.
