Alyssa and Brian, coming soon!

I'm itching to edit and post photos of one of the coolest weddings ever, and the one closest to my heart (aside from my own)... patience! Pretty goth October wedding coming soon.

(oh, and have a spooky weekend!)

Autumn leaves, our house

I was lamenting that we didn't have time to take a fall trip to New England to go leaf peeping, when I realized how much color we have in the area. I'm so glad I caught this tree in our front yard, when it was still all aflame!

And a few other things in the garden:

Trisha and Mark's Elopement, a few more shots

Just a couple more, belated black and white 120 film shots from Trisha and Mark's Muir Beach Wedding in August. I got these developed, then got busy, and have really enjoyed taking a second look. What do you think?

Cause I'm kinda loving em!

random film shots, summer 2009

Catching up on 35mm film scans...

Baby Franklin! He still fits in the bike basket, but mostly snoozes on the couch these days.

Kayaking!, Sugar Pine Reservoir, Foresthill

Some fun shots of a weekend trip Devon and I took in July to visit friends in rural Placer County. We had fun kayaking the stillest, beautiful waters of the Sugar Pine Reservoir in the area. I snapped some shots with my plastic underwater camera - reminds me of the photos from our trip to Whiskeytown in 2007. Fun!

Michelle and Nathan's anniversary party, Sebastopol

Here are some of my favorite shots from the anniversary party featured on Style Me Pretty a few weeks ago. I loved going to this part - as a guest, no less! - and love Michelle and Nathan and their son and their ranch.

I love the photos with the hen house!

The kids (there were many) had a pretty sweet setup: bounce house, kid-friendly menu (with mac n cheese, hot dogs, cupcakes, etc), childcare, popcorn machine (okay, that was for adults, too), big movie projected inside the barn. Fun!

The popcorn machine was so cool - with lots of seasoning options.

And homemade chutneys were served during the homecooked meal and offered as favors:

Michelle and Nathan's neighbors/ landmates:

And I looo-hoooove the dahlias! Some of my favorite flowers, locally sourced and totally in season.

The food was all home cooked, and often home grown (in the case of all of the produce):

And guests were seated in the midst of the big garden/ backyard:

And - cupcakes from Sift!!

This party makes me want to throw a fabulous backyard party for 40+ of our closest friends, too. Will it ever happen?! I don't think I'm as crafty-party talented as Michelle and Nathan, but they serve as a great inspiration for future plans.
