So many wonderful things to say about Mike and Eileen’s wedding, I don’t even know where to start! Lets begin by saying Eileen is probably hiding some kind of modeling contract under her bed, this girl is on fire! I mean really, take a look at her… she was such a joy to photograph, I might have gotten a little carried away.. ha 😉 Mike was totally smitten with his gorgeous bride and it showed the entire day, the guy could not stop gazing at her if he tried. Being a SWAT officer and mma fighter from Sacramento, CA, Mike obviously had to do his duty and provide a nice thorough pat-down of his pretty bride before heading off for photos… not that she was complaining 😉 The wedding party was a total hoot, I recall having slight stomach pain from laughing so much! Really great memories were made, amazing photos were taken, and once we got there, the venue just my breath away! Hotel Monte Cristo was beautifully and uniquely decorated with stunning peacock feathers, birds, vibrant colored flowers.. no detail was overlooked. I must say, I’ve never seen a full size peacock on a cake table, it was un-REAL!  Even a little CIA-looking ring bearer made an appearance walking down the isle with the wedding bands.  Mike and Eileen, thank you again so much for being such fantastic people to work with, I truly had an unforgettable experience shooting your fabulous wedding!! XOXO -d

Makeup done by the amazing Julia Nesterenko.. flawless!

Shoes with feathers.. to match the peacock theme. SO glam!

So incredibly gorgeous! Someone had to physically remove me from the room otherwise I would have shot here all day.. haha 😉

Stunning, just stunning.

Haha, Mikhail was a funny one 🙂

Officer Mike hard at work 😉

Doesn’t this group look like they belong in some kind of glossy magazine?! Dang guys!

LOL, the best man documenting the first kiss 😀

Heyyyyy sexy ladies!

I’ve mentioned before how much of a detail freak I am… it goes on and on 😉

No joke, this cake looked and tasted bomb!!
