Citizen Hotel Winter WeddingStephanie + Marc

After our outdoor Roseville engagement session, I couldn’t wait to see Stephanie and Marc say “I Do”. Our lovebirds got ready at one of my favorites, The Citizen Hotel.

We love the vintage touches Stephanie added to her day. These gloves and lace handkerchief were her mother’s along with the veil and tiara she wore.

One of the most important parts of Stephanie and Marc’s Big Day was their faith. With many Catholic friends and family (all the way from France), Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament could not have been a more beautiful place to be married before God.

Church is actually what brought our lovebirds together — they met volunteering at a St.Rose auction, and belong to the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament as well. Father Michael O’Reilly has known Stephanie and Marc for years and was overjoyed to marry them.

I fell in love with Stephanie and Marc’s fur babies! These fluffy pups were the nicest, well-trained poodles I’ve ever met!.
