Allyson and Marcus’s love story is one of epic proportion.
After dating for nearly a decade, Marcus asked Allyson to be his wife while traveling in Switzerland. After months and months of planning, this beautiful couple finally became husband and wife at their beautiful and modern wedding at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in Downtown Sacramento.
The day began with both bridal parties getting ready at the Kimpton Sawyer. Allyson and her bridesmaids enjoyed sipping mimosas and getting their hair and makeup done in a fabulous suite at the hotel, while Marcus and his groomsman hung out in another room.
When I first arrived at the Kimpton Sawyer, my first impressions of the hotel were as follows: 1) wow, 2)wow, 3) wow. I loved every bit of the hotel, from it’s central location downtown to it’s modern decor. This was the perfect venue for Allyson and Marcus’s modern wedding; their decor fit in perfectly.
Shortly after the bride and groom shared their first look, we began taking portraits of the bridal party and family. Guests began to arrive, and it was time for the ceremony.
The biggest thing that stood out to me about this wedding was the couple’s amazing vows that they wrote to one another. There was not a dry eye in the crowd.
I chose to craft their highlight film with their vows as the center point. I wanted all parts of their film and their story to circle back around to the promises these two beautiful people made to one another.
The party to follow was just as epic. Watch their film, and you will see what I mean 😉
