Sam and Sam’s pink and sparkly wedding at Garden Valley Ranch

I knew Sam and Sam were absolutely incredible from our very first phone call. We talked for over an hour, and I loved how well they supported and built off of each other. Last weekend, I finally got to party with them at the celebration they had described to me months ago. It was even more gorgeous than I had imagined it’d be.

Mr. and Mrs. Sam England had family and friends come from the United Kingdom, Taiwan, and all over the world. Everyone coming together in Petaluma, California for this wedding just shows how special this couple is to so many. They celebrated their diversity in culture by having different food stations with cuisine from various countries. The fish & chips went well with the dumplings 🙂

And after getting to meet all their family, it made so much more sense to me how the couple ended up so amazing. Samantha’s parents are so funny and sassy. And Samuel’s dad really went out the way to be sincerely kind to me and my second shooter. He’s also a professional photographer so getting his approval and trust to shoot this wedding day was an extra honor.

It was obvious how happy all Sams’ friends were to be there. With so much great company, Sam and Sam opted out of traditional wedding parties so they could be inclusive to all the people they love. They got ready together and walked each other down the aisle like. a. boss.

This was really such a perfect day that I had a difficult time choosing images for this blog post. There is so much more to share and I can’t wait! But for now, enjoy these sneak peeks 🙂
