Michelle & Keith's Granite Bay Golf Club Wedding - Granite Bay, CA

Summer held on pretty long this year, and I think it is just now slowly starting to escape us and turn in to fall. There was no denying that the weather felt above average last month for Michelle & Keith's big day, but even a little extra heat wasn't going to get these two down on their luck.  The entire day went off without a single flaw, and the two of them were all smiles every step of the way.  This wedding was a new experience for me, since I had never been to a full Catholic mass ceremony before. The ceremony was interesting and exciting, and I could not have asked for a better experience from a more gracious bride and groom! Their wedding day began at the St. Joseph Marello Parish in Granite Bay.
The moment Keith saw Michelle come down the aisle, there was no way at all to deny his love for his wife to be.
I just LOVE how Michelle's dress and veil flowed. She looked like such a princess the entire day!
And they're now married!!
After the ceremony and family formals, we headed across town to the Granite Bay Golf Club for a few more bridal party portraits before heading out on the course with the bride & groom.
These next two are probably a few of my FAVORITES from the time out with the two of them. Seriously, could they be any more photogenic?
Keith's dad has been a member at this course for years, and naturally that led to Keith being a golfer himself. Before we called it good for the day, we made sure to have a little fun an incorporate the golf cart in to some of their portraits.
I don't think anyone could have asked for a more excited reaction from a groom. Michelle is one lucky lady!
I love seeing new creative ideas involving engagement photos from couples brought in to the wedding. Michelle's parents had a wine label made just for them on their wedding day!
The reception carried on with speeches and toasts, full of happiness, laughter and appreciation for the newlyweds and their lives together
Once the music got going, there was no stopping this crowd. Guests of all ages were ready to show off their moves and have a fantastic time!
The cake was small and sweet, much like Michelle. But as soon as the cake was in her hand, Keith was in for a... treat? Of course, he wasn't going to let his bride have ALL the fun ;)
Michelle and Keith - thank you so much again for having us as a part of your gorgeous wedding day. It was fantastic to get to know and work with the two of you these past few months, and I know your starting on a wonderful journey together as husband and wife. Best wishes to the two of you!
