Maddie + Shawn | Catholic Service + Rancho Solano Clubhouse Reception, Fairfield

Maddie reached out to me during her search for a wedding photographer, and about a month before her wedding we sat down at coffee and totally became fast friends. I knew we were a good match immediately, but I had no idea how much fun I would end up having at their wedding!

They were married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Fairfield, California, in a gorgeous ceremony. After formal photos, we headed to Rancho Solano Clubhouse, where the champagne and dancing began... way before the actual reception! The bridal party was dancing around outside while I took their photos, their videographer was filming music videos of the bride and maid of honor, the groomsmen were feeling super "male model status," it was such a blast.

The bride and groom have two boys, Jayden + Shawn Jr, who were not only the best behaved kids EVER, but they gave their parents the most beautiful, sentimental gift I have ever seen- a surprise performance at the wedding! (Don't worry Shawn, I didn't post the photos of you sobbing). This group of people truly made me feel like family. They could not have been more accommodating and kind and FUN! I may have even stuck around after my shooting time was up to dance with my new friends!

Maddie and Shawn, a lifetime of happiness to you, your boys, and all those puppies! You are wonderful together.
