Taylor and Daniel’s Humboldt California wedding at Beginnings Briceland beautifully flowed so naturally, true, and free… Love, light, laughter… what more do you need on your wedding day? Remarkably contagious to everyone involved. It was one of those magical summer days where time seems to stop and the entire day feels like an ever-present dream. Golden light everywhere. Bright eyes. Laughter. Tears. Endless dancing into the night! So so many great moments from this experience to share during this gorgeous Humboldt California wedding. We feel so honored to have photographed so many weddings from this community. Getting to know everyone through every experience builds trust and excitement for every wedding we photograph. This gives us a special window into capturing everyone’s authenticity. We love it!
What worked so beautifully for Taylor and Daniel’s day was the variety of backdrops that were all within walking distance. This created an organic flow for everyone to interact together while keeping things constantly changing, but with ease. Taylor getting ready in the most simple small little house on the property with open light all around her. The family and friends all gathered around nearby for when Taylor and Daniel saw each other. Shared experiences like this are so fun and also great for photography. By having their ceremony down by the river everyone enjoyed the experience of walking about 1/2 mile together. Activities like this are exciting and create anticipation and a bit of an adventure. Outdoor ceremonies, especially near a river, are very unique and special. No decorations needed because nature does it all. Following the ceremony, everyone was invited to walk together about 1 mile back to Beginnings Briceland, some jumped in a jeep. Add a few fun musicians to play along the way to join in and you have a super fun parade.
By the Taylor and Daniel reached the reception the sun was setting just perfectly. Beginnings Briceland has this awesome hill outback with endless wheat fields and all of their friends joined them celebrating the magic of golden hour together. They brought a few pieces of cardboard to slide down the hill together, laughing and rolling in the grass. These people know how to have fun with anything. So awesome.
Speeches, tears, laughs, dancing, music, cake… and an incredible community of friends and family who share so much history together. You can see so clearly how everyone is so connected in this community. Taylor and Daniel gave us the best gift with their trust in us to capture all the free-flowing emotions and actions without a worry in the world. We loved every moment and will never forget the feelings shared on this gorgeous day.
