Mendocino Wedding Photography | Heritage House Resort

This is pretty much as good as it gets.  A fabulous team of wedding vendor artists~ hair by Marianella (owner of M Salon in Mendocino), makeup by Danielle (owner of Bloom Beauty in Mendocino), flowers by Rosa (owner of LR Farms), all things sweet by Franny (owner of Franny’s Cup and Saucer), draping and decor by Matt (owner of Matt Rowland Events), and the wedding planner extraordinaire, Zoe Braga.  Not to mention the fabulous location, staff, and views of Heritage House Resort Inn.  And finally, but most importantly a crazy cute, and in love, young couple.  This is the ultimate in a Mendocino Wedding experience!

I am crazy for the matching robes and I love that the mom’s got into the act.  They were such good sports about going barefoot in the tall grasses!

How sweet are these two?  I could get a cavity!

Their “first look” moment was so emotionally charged!  What a beautiful experience to have captured.

Jamie brought along this great balloon.  The wind really wanted to claim it, but it inspired lots of giggles as Will struggled to hold on.

As if the wedding wasn’t enough, we had a fabulous time playing on the beach the next morning.  I could die, these two were so much fun to photograph!

Mendocino Wedding Photography | Cypress Grove + Heritage House Resort

It had been a stormy week in Mendocino when Steve and Rochelle arrived. It was a short day before their wedding and all was wet and windy.  The bride did her best to prepare for whatever the weather brought on her wedding day. The very next morning the clouds parted and they were gifted a spectacular day. The sun was shining and so was the bride. It was a sweet, simple wedding that began a new life for this new family.

After the ceremony Rochelle and Steve took a romantic walk on the beach in Little River. Then it was off to their candle lit reception at the Heritage House Inn.

    tammie gilchrist - SOOOOO beautiful Cassandra! I love the colors in the sky in so many of the images you captured. Beautiful bride and groom, they have to be over the moon excited for these! xoReplyCancel

What an amazing year this has been.  I feel so blessed to be living the life I am.  My days are filled with love, creativity, laughter, joy, nature, and art at home and in the work I do.  Forty-four shoots and a new studio in the Mendocino Village, it has been an eventful year!  Here are a handful of the memories I have shared with some of my clients along the way.  The 2014 highlights.

I can’t wait to kickoff my 2015 season at the spectacular Heritage House in Mendocino on January 10th.

Cheers!
