Marc and Julia’s wedding was a real family event.  They were completing the union of their little extended family including their beautiful little daughter.  It was a bittersweet occurrence as they also mourned their recent familial losses, but no time was spent in tears as they happily wedded at the cliffs edge accompanied by their nearest family members and friends.  Julia was a true trooper as it was a mile hike out to the ceremony site they had selected, but totally worth it.  The spot they had picked was so isolated and beautiful it felt as though we were the only people in the world.

Sky and Leah were one of the most honest and joyful couples I’ve met to date.  Sky was quick with a joke at all times and Leah always had a sweet smile at the ready.  They had a simple wedding in the Mendocino Botanical Gardens followed by a reception at the very rustic Caspar Community Center.  Their wedding was as much a celebration of their close knit group of family and friends as it was of their union.  All couples should be so lucky to have such a fun and loving group to support them.

It has been a prolific year in the life of CYoung Photography marking my tenth year as a Mendocino wedding photographer!  A year so full of beauty, laughter, love, and lots and lots of kisses.  I really do have the best job in the world.  Here is but a glimpse of all the fun I’ve had.  I cannot wait for all of my new photographic adventures with the lovely couples already filling my 2016 calendar.

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.

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.
