I may be a little late to the party, but after photographing my first two weddings at Panoche Creek this year, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in the Fresno area. The grounds are just amazing with massive, old trees, established orchards, and as I discovered at this wedding after the river waters receded, a beautiful meadow. To top it off I got to spend this day with the extraordinarily friendly and kind Hailey and Greg and their friends and family. Even though their bridal party was quite large, it was obvious that each and every person chosen had a close, personal, and unique relationship with them. Everyone was loose, happy and ready to have an amazing time and they weren’t disappointed. A special shout-out to Cassandra from Weddings by Cassandra for pulling all this together, as well as Amy from Brown Bunny for the amazing floral and decor work. Everything was so beautiful that I even broke my “don’t post many details” rule and included several among my favorites. Enjoy!
