Elizabeth and Christopher's Wedding Day - Wedding Photography in Nevada City

The Goodlaff wedding has been a long wait since the engagement pictures taken back in January. As I mentioned in the engagement session post I have known Christopher (Chris) for a long time. So not only was this wedding important to me because I was photographing it but also because I got to see someone dear to me commit his love to someone as beautiful and smart as Elizabeth (Beth).

We started out the day with the bride and her bridesmaids at their hotel spending time taking pictures of the many details a wedding will have, most importantly the wedding dress. The hotel room gave many different options for where to hang the dress. I loved the dress on the gold framed fruit basket picture.



Beth spent endless hours preparing for her big day, paying attention to every detail creating a fabulous DIY wedding. Beth has also started a blog, The Goodlaff Bride. I enjoy following her blog because of all her creative ideas plus she tells it like it is. For her big day, Beth made a birdcage veil, a hair flower piece, a necklace, personalized hangers for each of her bridesmaids, and a lot more. Plus, the hint of blue on her wedding dress and the blue wedding shoes just showed how fun of a girl Beth is. She and her girls looked so stunning together.






One thing that really made this wedding unique was the old style buildings and architecture of Nevada City, California. The Miners Foundry Cultural Center was really a beautiful venue for a wedding. The guys photos were a little pressed for time but because we had the rustic buildings that Nevada City has to offer we got a few really neat pictures of the them hanging out around the buildings. Plus they had matching argyle socks so we managed to grab some photos of them showing their socks off.



After the ceremony we took some photos of the newly married bride and groom. Here are a few of my favorite of the two of them as newlyweds.




Congratulations to the newly weds, Christopher and Elizabeth Ratzlaff!

  1. Oh my god! She is so cute and the photographer has captured these pictures beautifully. I so want to learn the art of capturing pictures like this. I do have that vision but I still want to learn things to become a pro. I might click wedding photographs for my sister. She is getting married next month in one of the finest Venues in NYC.
