“You are the apple of my pie”~Unknown
Today I’m blogging the wedding of Elise & Wesley at the Tea House on Los Rios, the charming storybook wedding venue situated on the oldest neighborhood in California. I still remember the last time I was here photographing the wedding of Hailey and Dan. With so much natural beauty to capture your attention the Tea House will instantly carve out a place in your heart as one of the most special places you’ve ever visited.

With the wedding ceremony slated for 5pm, my day with Elise & Wes started at 3pm for getting ready photos of the bride as well as details photos of her dress, shoes and accessories. This implied sign makes it a perfect stop for the groom.
The Tea House offers a charming victorian decorated bridal suite with two small windows that are perfect for soft window light photos of the bride.
With so much anticipation for seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day, Elise & Wes opted for a “First Look” which we staged along the Los Rios St. side of the Tea House. They were surrounded by what seemed like a sea of lush greenery plants and foliage with various pumpkins leading to the entryway of the Tea HouseA Harvest photo to mark the time and the season of the year.
The ceremony was beautifully performed at the Back Brick Patio amongst 25 of Elise & Wes closest family and friends.
