Todd & Corinne Gibson Wedding - Beautiful Chico, CA Wedding Photography - Cory's Country Inn

Since I met Todd and Corinne several months ago at our engagement session at 5-Mile Park, I have been looking forward to their wedding. They seemed so excited about photography and insisted that the venue, Cory's Country Inn , was perfect. You can see on their website that it is a nice venue, but it doesn't compare to what is actually Cory's. For this event, the property was divided into three main areas: the pool area for appetizers and cocktails, the large grass courtyard where they had the reception, and the newly developed Secret Garden with beautiful white crape myrtles was the perfect ceremony setting. Each section was divided by stunning iron gates and arches. One of the best parts about the venue was Cory herself. She is so warm and helpful. We arrived and she immediately asked if we needed anything and told us about her property. Her bright personality really made her venue shine.

Now that we had the beautiful venue all I needed to do was be the wedding photographer. Corinne is gorgeous - her smile can light up a room. She and her bridesmaids really brought a sense of class and happiness to their photos. Then their was the groom, Todd, and his groomsmen. Just two words: Doublemint Gum. Not only are Todd's brothers identical twins, so are his cousins. Both parties were so much fun to photograph and Cory's Country Inn really allowed for some beautiful scenery.

As the time for the ceremony approached, everyone took their places. Finally, the majestic Secret Garden gates were opened to reveal the stunningly gorgeous bride, Corinne, to her waiting groom for the first time. The smile could not be removed from Corinne's face and soon enough, the pastor said, "I know pronounce you man and wife," followed by the nuptial kiss.

For the reception, Todd and Corrine were announced as husband and wife in the courtyard. It was a hot day but, luckily, they had a large tent covering the courtyard lawn which not only made the guests comfortable and happy, it also helped with photography so I wasn't working in direct sun. One fun addition to this part of the wedding was that before being able to get in line for the fabulous buffet, each table had to sing a song to the newlyweds! First up, Todd sang to his bride, then each table earned their spot in the buffet line with a string of fun party songs. Later in the evening, we had another song from Todd. This one was dedicated to his new wife and his parents. His father sang the same song to his mother on their wedding day. The low light and romantic venue made for the sweetest moment during this song - during their first dance the light was just low enough to create a dramatic flare as they danced away.

Congratulations to the newlyweds, Todd and Corinne Gibson!
