I was wracking my brain trying to figure out just where in Oroville someone would choose to get married. My tours of the town have only involved Feather Falls casino for late night poker and picking up a friend or two from jail back in college (ok, ok it was the same friend multiple times). Thankfully the wedding was at neither the casino or the jail. ;)
Honker Bay Ranch is amazing! It's country, very country as you'll see when you are greeted by the sound of gunfire from the local gun range. Trust me, with this crowd that was the perfect sweet sound to ring in the nuptials to.
The property is also surrounded by trees, ponds, and GASP! a small vineyard! Could anything be more perfect? The trees lend for perfect shade for the daytime portraits and the vineyard is just breathtaking during golden hour - see for yourself.
Also, I may be a little biased because the Peters wedding was PERFECT. I mean everything was perfect. Jess was the most calm and gracious bride, she even let the girls pick out their own "long pink dresses" and metallic tones shoes. Everyone looked happy and comfortable and the girls were the nicest!
Of course the groom and groomsmen were great too! I love the suspenders and bow ties. You couldn't ask for better friends and family. Jess and Elliott are clearly a blessed couple.
To top off a perfect day, we had a great vendor team! My favorite officiant Matt Archer was a rockstar and performed another beautifully simple unity. DJ Ryan D of Elite Sound (who I've known since elementary school by the way) was the emcee and mixmaster for the night and as always put on a great event!
HUGE congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Peters! I hope you love these preview shots from your big day, thank you so much for allowing me to be such a big part of it!
