Jacques Ranch | Exeter, California

Brendan and Heather were introduced through mutual friends. After bonding over music a beautiful friendship blossomed. Friendship grew into love and love into forever!! Even their sweet kids have become best friends, how sweet is that!!

What a beautiful October wedding day! Perfect 70s weather, sweet kiddos, fun bridal party, and pretty details … and friendly critters! 🙂 lol While I was capturing details, this adorable kitty was quite curious as to what the heck I was doing! So why not include her!! ????

Jacque Ranch is picturesque with a tree line driveway, foothills views and horse graising in the fields. On the drive in I thought to myself lets see if we can get a picture at sunset with this view. Much to our surprise these beauties were not content to be in the background but wanted IN the middle of the photo shoot! So funny!! They even posed for me. I told Brendan & Heather to go forehead to forehead…and the HORSES OBEY ON CUE!!! No Joke! Next I told Brendan to kiss Heather and the horse decided to kiss ???? Brendan instead. ????

Heather and Brandon obviously have many adoring friends and family. So many touching speeches were given but the tear jerkers were from their children! Being only 10 years old they both gave heart felt speeches that brought a tear to my eye. Heather and Brandon have got to be so proud of both of them.  May God bless this new family richly with lots of love and happiness!
