I am so excited to share about a very special wedding today!
The bride is now a dear friend and I am so thankful the Lord put us in each other’s paths. 🙂
She had THE MOST stunning wedding and I just completely swoon looking at her gorgeous photos.
Meet Erica & Chase…
My husband (Chase) and I met at a mutual friends wedding back in 2007. At the time, I was in college in San Diego and he had just moved back to California from New York. We hit it off at the wedding, shared a few dances and at the end of the night parted ways. 5 years later, we randomly ended up at a fourth of July BBQ together! We remembered each other from the wedding years prior and instantly started chatting and connected really quickly. 2 weeks later we went on our first date and we fell in love very quickly. I knew it was the kind of love I would never want to let go of, something I had never felt before with anyone else. We had so much fun together and every day was exciting. I remember being so giddy and excited ALL the time 😉 He was my best friend, my soul mate. A little over a year later, on a trip to Yosemite Chase proposed to me! It was such a special day and every time we go back I am reminded of the feeling I had on that special day 🙂
We were married on 12/13/14 at Union Hill Inn in Sonora, CA. I had actually seen a picture of the venue in brides magazine before I had ever met Chase and said that when I got married, that would be the place!
I was hesitant about a Winter wedding but was sold on the venue and it turned out that 12/13/14 was the only date available in 2014!! So we took it and off I went with planning my magical Winter wedding.
I really tried to play off the beauty of the venue. I wanted everything to be soft and neutral and winter wonderland-ish 🙂
It turned out more amazing than I ever could’ve imagined. It was such an amazing day and I will always cherish the memories we made with our family and friends.
If you think their photos are gorgeous, just wait until you see their wedding video.
They are just the sweetest couple and it is evident how much they love and cherish each other.
