Old Sugar Mill Italian Themed Spring Wedding – Part 1Kelsey + Michael

We have quite the wedding in store for you guys! What’s better than a spring wedding you ask? A spring wedding set in a dreamy winery with a Sarah Seven gown. *cue the heart eyes and drool

These two have quite the adventurous love story that spans across the world! If you haven’t already checked out their engagement photos, go look at the beautiful engagement session we did in Midtown Sacramento. It’s full of coffee, adorable laughs, and their glorious love story.

I loved hanging out with these fun ladies! We had all the laughs and jokes while they got all dolled up for the ceremony.

Michael loves how genuine Kelsey is when she laughs, smiles, and just has fun in life. I loved seeing her joy radiate in her smile through their wedding day!

I love this raw and gorgeous shot of Kelsey while reading a heartfelt note from Michael. There’s nothing sweeter than seeing a bride’s face light up while reading a love note before the ceremony.

These boutonnieres on the groom and groomsmen were to die for! I loved the beautiful color scheme of the florals which matched the rest of the wedding. They perfectly brightened up the classic tuxedos the men wore for the big day.

Can we just take a second to look at these gorgeous flowers and greens?! This is so damn pretty! Those are some of the most beautiful peonies and they go so great together. The lighter ivory colored roses sure do pop in the sea of crimson. Visual Impact designs the most classic and elegant wedding bouquets!

Kelsey and Michael met in Italy while at an archaeological field school. How cool is that? A real life adventure duo! I loved that they incorporated Italian culture and their experience into the wedding. Like these adventurous figurines holding their stunning rings!

Their wedding was at the gorgeous Old Sugar Mill. I loved the historic building with all the beautiful brick walls. There’s nothing better than a winery as a setting for a wedding reception. I mean look how gorgeous the color scheme pops here!
