Portrait of bride groom at First Presbyterian Church

Portrait of bride groom at First Presbyterian Church

First Presbyterian Church in Turlock has beautiful grounds with wild grass and tall cypress trees.  We did all the portraits of the bridal party and bride and groom there, which made it very convenient.  

The couple's wedding theme was "Woodland Wonderland," so the trees were perfect for their portraits.  Their ceremony was beautiful and special because the Pastor has known the bride since she was a little girl, and has seen her grow up.  He had sweet stories about her wonderful family.

The families are so warm and inviting, they're meshed together with love already, one clan. The toasts at the reception made it clear that these are fun, loving families.  The father of the bride told the story of when all the women left to go shopping, leaving the little girl with the men.  She was running around outside in just a diaper and got dirty, so dad just hosed her off in the back yard.  Hilarious!

The reception was at Larsa Banquet Hall in Turlock.  The decor was unique branch installations, and a three-tier cake surrounded by moss and displayed on a wood slice cake stand.
