Northern California Wedding Photography - Kristine & Jeff's Wedding Day - Idlewild Park, Reno NV

Kristine and Jeff are old friends of mine from the small town of Truckee, CA - we were all on the high school soccer teams together. I remember when news came that they were an item, it was no surprise because they made such a cute pair of high school sweethearts. Eleven years later, when Facebook notified me that they were engaged, I could not have been more excited when Kristine asked me to photograph the wedding. The date? September 9th, 2011. The venue? The Rose Garden at Idlewild Park in Reno, Nevada.

The day began with the bridal party getting ready in suites at Reno's recently renovated Peppermill. From there, the limos transported the guys and the girls separately to the site of the ceremony: the Rose Garden at Idlewild Park. The roses were in bloom and the sound of the Truckee River in the background made it a great venue for this couple with their ties to Truckee. The reception was held only a few steps away at the California Building where Kristine and Jeff began their lives as husband and wife.

Enjoy some of my favorite images from this special day. First up the bride and her beautiful bridesmaids.





The groom and his groomsmen were very photogenic and had a great time striking poses for the camera. I especially love them under the Reno sign, "The Biggest Little City in the World".



Here comes the bride with her Father on her arm. Let the ceremony begin.





Before the husband and wife were introduced at their reception, we took some images of the couple for the first time as newlyweds.





(Sidenote: The California Building and Idlewild Park was a gift from the state of California.)

Thank you Kristine and Jeff for letting my team and me be a part of your special day. I will never forget when I asked you to stand belly-to-belly and you guys chest-bumped. You two are just as cute now as you were back in high school. Congratulations and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.
