Emily + Charles’ wedding felt like a dream from start to finish. Giant towering redwoods, the cool California air, string lights everywhere, the FUNNIEST and most in-love couple ever, hysterical vows that had the entire crowd doubled over in laughter, heartfelt and equally as hysterical speeches, dreamy gowns and florals, and lots of time for portraits….can we do this every weekend? It was such an honor to travel out to Northern California and shoot at the completely lovely Chenoweth Woods. Em + Charles, we feel like the luckiest photographers to have gotten to know you and capture your incredible love! And I can’t wait to relive those vows + speeches in the film by our pals Willow Tree Films, who traveled out with us as well! Enjoy a few (ok, a LOT) of our favorites from this beautiful September wedding day in Sebastepol, California in the redwood forest <3
