Alex and Jordyn’s wedding took place at the Dayton Valley Golf Course in Dayton, Nevada. Dayton is located about 45 minuets outside of Reno Tahoe. One of the perks of photographing at a golf course is getting to zip around on the golf carts. It’s so fun!!

These two choose a beautiful fall day in early October to celebrate their love, and they perfectly paired burgundy dresses and fall colored floral to complete the look. They could not have been more considerate towards their guests, as we all know Nevada weather can change in a split second. This couple provided blankets during their outdoor ceremony wrapped with tags that said “to have and to hold”. What a fabulous idea right?!?

The thing I love most about weddings is all the little details that go into it. For example, the mother of the bride hand painted sun flowers on her daughter’s shoes (Toms), and homemade dipped caramel apples at the dessert bar with tags that said “apple-y married”. How cute is that?!?  The bridesmaids all wore unicorn slippers during the reception,  and the groomsmen all rocked fun socks. Even the father of the bride got in on the fun sock trend!! I especially loved the circle arch at the ceremony.

One of the hardest parts of photographing weddings can be that “group” photo. You know, the huge photo with like 50+ guests, family, friends, and kids all need to be in it together. There is usually a little built up anxiety for me going into that photo but I’m not lying when I say this group shot was the easiest family pose I have ever attempted. So a double high-five to everyone involved. You guys rocked. 

Although rain and wind continuously reared its ugly head throughout the day, as it usually does in northern Nevada this time of year, it didn’t seem to put a damper on their day.
