Amanda + Zak’s Vintage Carnival Wedding at the Iron Gate Garden Inn | Chico, California Photographer
Amanda and Zak’s wedding day at the Iron Gate Garden Inn in Chico, CA was one that I could shoot over and over again! The details were beautiful and can we just talk about how gorgeous Amanda is in that dress?!
It started with a beautiful and intimate ceremony tucked into the courtyard, surrounded by mature landscape and their closest friends and family. Amanda and Zak’s corgi, “Lady,” made her way down the aisle to see her humans get married and a corgi in a tutu might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!
I still get goosebumps when I think about how Amanda and Zak fell in love in Europe. Young and in love, they were going to take on the world together. Then Zak was in a terrible car accident, and things were very serious. To hear friends and family speak about the devotion and love that Amanda showed in those moments and weeks bought a tear to my eye. This love is the kind that stands the test of time and I was truly honored to capture their wedding day.
Amanda used to work as a nanny, and at one of our first meetings she told me how she wanted their wedding day to be fun for all of her guests, especially the young ones! When she mentioned a vintage carnival theme complete with a popcorn machine, VW photo bus, and yard games, I was all ears! Her vision came to life with the help of some amazing vendors. To my friends Amanda and Zak, I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness and many more nights like this with the ones that you love.
