Shelby and Garrett knew that getting married among the redwoods, surrounded by family, was exactly what they wanted. They chose a place near where she grew up, in a small place in northern California called Leggett, known for the famous Chandeleir Drive-Through Tree.
Although they got married in Leggett, Garrett and Shelby chose to do all their prep at the Baywood Historic Inn, just north of the venue. It gave us the opportunity for some really great first look and bridal party images!
We were lucky enough to meet these two prior to them becoming our clients, when we photographed Shelby's brother's wedding in Arcata California. It's always a delight to be able to photograph a family multiple times, and see the growth and progression in their lives.
I absolutely love the color scheme they selected. The deep red complimented the greens and it made for a nice pop of color throughout their gallery. Shelby's Pronovias dress is pretty much a dream; the length, the lace, the fit...it gave me such dress envy!
Shelby and Garrett, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to photograph such an important event in your lives! We hope your wedding day was all you dreamed of and more!

If you thought this wedding was great then you'll want to check out Amanda and Dan's Trinidad wedding. It'll make you fall in love with the rocky coastline northern California and Oregon are known for. Don't forget to pin your favorite images and give us a follow on Pinterest!
P.S. If you're ever in the Humboldt County area, go check out the place where these two got their pies. A Slice of Humboldt Pie is one of our mandatory go-to stops! #Deliciouswithasideofdelicious
