Summer Vizcaya Sacramento Wedding – Part 1Shelby + Michael

After 7 1/2 years together after meeting at Pepperdine, Shelby and Michael wed this summer at the gorgeous Vizcaya Mansion. These sweathearts bonded over their “Great Books” lit course, where Shelby fell in love with Michael’s insight and Michael was wooed by her curiosity about the world. Years in the making, their love story was a dream to capture!
