  • We had the pleasure of the spending the day with Lani and Shay yesterday and photographing their beautiful wedding day in Sacramento. Sacramento Hyatt Wedding PhotosCory and I started out at their home where Shay was getting ready. When we knocked on the door, he answered looking cool, calm, and collected - he had just woken from a nap! I had gone to wedding rehearsal the night before and knew that Lani might be a bit nervous so I thought it would help calm some nerves if Shay wrote a little note to Lani - which we delivered promptly upon arriving at the Hyatt in downtown Sacramento where the bride was getting ready for her wedding day. Let me just say, all us girls thought his words were super romantic! Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos2Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos3Lani looked amazing! I tore out this ad of Lani's dress so we could take a fun photo of her in her Badgley Mischka dress - the details on this gown were exquisite.Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos4Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos5We headed outside to the Capitol Park to take some family photos. Lani's brother Derek had the good idea of adding a lucky penny in her shoe. We took some individual photos of both Lani and Shay before we had their first planned sighting. The sunlight was perfect!Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos6Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos7Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos8Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos9Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos10The couple headed over the Saint Francis of Assisi in a cool vintage limousine. The sun went down and the light in the church created such a soft feeling. I have to say that they had one of the most romantic first husband and wife kisses!Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos11Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos12Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos13 Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos13Since we had already taken all the family photos, we headed straight away to the Firehouse in Old Sacramento. Each table was named after a character in Casablanca. There were candles everywhere. And the pianist played into the night. Their cake from Village Cake Shoppe was delicious. I won't say which brother this is - (faking) putting his finger in the cake!Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos14Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos15Sacramento Hyatt Wedding Photos16I'll leave you with this image we took right outside the church in the darkness. I'm so happy for both Shay and Lani and we are so thankful you asked us to share in your day! Have fun when you leave on your honeymoon.
