Here is yet another wedding that I waited way to long to share, though thankfully, it’s only been a few months, not half a year!  Vince and Courtney were my first wedding of 2015 and I can’t imaging a cooler couple to have stolen that memorable and celebratory spot in my 2015 wedding year.  I’m so honored Courtney’s mother connected with me and that I could photograph their special Winters CA wedding!

Vince and Courtney have an unbelievably unique and romantic story: they are both in the Air Force and met while stationed in Ohio.  Soon after meeting, Vince received orders to go to San Antonio.  He didn’t want to leave Courtney behind so he proposed to her Christmas Eve 2013.  They had to act fast, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to attach Courtney to his orders.  He was scheduled to leave in April of 2014!   They ended up having a civil ceremony in Ohio in the court house on January 3, 2014 and no family was able to attend.  Fast forward to one year later: the gorgeous couple arranged to visit Courtney’s family during the holidays and they came up with the idea to hold their official wedding, vow exchange and reception for family and local friends on their anniversary. In the end, it was a small intimate affair of about 50 unbelievably fun people with a rocking dance party (and really exceptionally good steak).
