Carlos and Denise had a destination wedding in Hawaii and brought the aloha spirit back to the Sierra foothills to celebrate with family and friends. Jerseydale is the sweetest little pumpkin patch in the fall but also a beautiful venue the rest of the year and happens to be down the street from where Denise grew up.

You wouldn’t think Hawaii and the Sierras would come together so seamlessly, but the gorgeous florals, leis, and pops of turquoise nestled under twinkle lights by the pond surrounded by pines and oaks blended effortlessly.

This was one of the most joyous receptions I ever had the privilege of photographing. It even happened to have a hula performance. So fun! The happiness was contagious as family and friends came together to celebrate Denise and Carlos!
