Darlene and Brian got married on December 18th in Reno, Nevada at the Rancho San Rafael Ranch House. I have never driven through snow...ever...so I made Will come with me and drive since a big storm was moving through Northern California. Luckily for us, the snow levels were super high and we only had to chain up for about 20 miles. It was actually raining once we got into Reno, but we had just enough snow on the ground to give Darlene the "winter wonderland" look that she was hoping for! Since I had to travel from Riverside to Reno for this wedding, I was unable to meet with Darlene in person before her big day. I was so pleasantly surprised at how low key and personable both she and Brian were. I felt right at home and my time with them flew by. Nearly every image from the ceremony includes someone laughing and my favorite part was when Darlene stated, "...for as loooooong as we both shall live" - you know, emphasizing her commitment to a truly LONG marriage!
Thank you Darlene and Brian for allowing me to photograph your gorgeous wedding!
