White Horse Inn Wedding | Three Rivers, California

I was so excited for this day! Melissa and Juan are such a sweet couple and we had a blast on their adventurous engagement session!  I knew that their Three Rivers Wedding was going to be fun!

But leading up to their day was all kinds of interesting potential problems. First the weather reports predicted REALLY hot weather, then a possible summer rain storm, then FORREST FIRES entered into Three Rivers. Wedding Day came and it was amazing! No smoke or bad air only beautiful blue skies with puffy white clouds and temps only in the 80’s with snow still on the mountains peaks. That right there is a blessing in June within Central California! God’s sweet blessing on their special day.

One thing was very clear on Juan and Melissa’s wedding day. They are well loved by their people!!! Guests & wedding party members came from far and wide to see their friends tie the knot. The White Horse Inn was a beautiful setting for these sweet people to celebrate at.  Right at the base of the Kings Canyon National Forrest, the backdrop views are stunning.  Cute Penny, Melissa’s adorable white pup, acted as ring bearer. I swear precious Penny was actually smiling most of the ceremony looking up her humans.  Juan was emotional to see his gorgeous bride coming up the aisle; every brides’ wish! Such a unique and meaningful ceremony.

I did a little happy dance when these two Love birds said they were up for a little hiking in their wedding attire! Oh Yes!!!! We got stunning portraits with the very full river in the background.  Melissa and Juan, loved every minute of our time with you! ! Thank you for making us feel like part of the family for the day! So excited for you to see all the photos, but for now, here are just a few of the many favorites!
