Michelle and Dustin’s Centerville Estates Wedding /// Chico Wedding Photographer

Michelle and Dustin had a gorgeous wedding at Centerville Estates in Chico, CA. Centerville Estates is located up in the canyon and next to a creek. Even though it’s only a few minutes outside of town it feels like you’re in a completely different place. The landscape makes for gorgeous photo backgrounds and we had so much fun wandering around by the creek. Michelle and Dustin’s day was full of love, fun, and beautiful details (One of my favorites was their vintage cake topper, which was a family heirloom). These two are now a family of THREE and are enjoying life with their sweet baby boy.     Planner: 530 Bride Venue: Centerville Estates Makeup Artist: Powder Room Florist: Carrie Thengvall Floral Design Catering: Crush Chico DJ: Elite Sound Cake and cupcakes: Lovely Layers Photographer: Morgan Chantelle...

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is sunset photos. Whether you do a first look or not, I always recommend doing sunset photos. Because of the schedule of a wedding day, most couples end up doing their wedding party photos earlier in the day when light can be harsh. When the sun is high in the sky I’m more limited on how and where we shoot photos. As soon as the sun goes down the light is even and all your photos look amazing. I love shooting in golden light and even (a new to me term) blue hour when the sun has set, but there’s still a hazy, pretty light. Kayla and Will were total troopers and up for driving around to a few different locations nearby to find the best light, the best backdrop, and to take some AMAZING sunset photos. Kayla and Will got married at the gorgeous Forest House Lodge located in the Sierra Nevadas. Driving up into Foresthill and then entering the Forest House Lodge feels other-wordly. It’s definitely a beautiful escape outside the city and an amazing place to celebrate with all of your friends and family! Thank you, Kayla and Will, for allowing me to capture your wedding day! It was such a fun and wonderful celebration of your love! Venue: Forest House Lodge Photographer: Morgan Chantelle...
