Fall Wolf Lakes Wedding
Erika and John tied the knot this fall at Wolf Lakes Park in a stunning ceremony that was a reflection of their love story. They first met on Bumble and had their first date in Old Town Clovis at Blast & Brew. From there, their love blossomed, and they soon found themselves exploring different locations and making unforgettable memories together. From their shared love of dogs and road trips to their passion for pool days, wine tasting, weekend getaways, cooking, dining out, and enjoying their guilty pleasure of watching trash TV, Erika and John are a match made in heaven.
Their proposal story is nothing short of romantic. John got down on one knee in the Gardens of Shadowbrook Restaurant in Capitola, surrounded by picturesque scenery and the soft sound of cascading water in the background. It was a moment that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
Rainstorms rocked our world in California last winter. So Erika and John opted to do their engagement photoshoot with me at a fun studio in Downtown Fresno.

As their big day approached, Erika and John shared with me that they were most excited about different parts of their wedding. John was counting down the days to the moment they would finish their ceremony as a newly married couple and walk out together, beaming with happiness. Erika, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle and see John for the first time, share their first dance together, and enjoy her father-daughter dance. And, of course, they both looked forward to the epic party that was to follow.
As their wedding day arrived, the couple met at St. Peters’s Apostle Church to make their vows. Erika looked absolutely radiant in her wedding gown! John was a picture of pride and joy as he stood at the end of the aisle. It was a moment of pure bliss as Erika walked towards him, and their eyes met in a tender gaze filled with emotion.
The ceremony was beautiful and emotional, with heartfelt vows and touching moments that left everyone in the audience inspired and teary-eyed. It was the perfect representation of their love, and every moment was filled with pure joy and celebration.
As the sun set, it was time to head to Wolf Lakes for beautiful portraits and the reception kick-off.
A Beautiful Reception at Wolf Lakes
Their first dance was an intimate moment that was nothing short of magical. It was like the rest of the world had melted away, and Erika and John were the only two people in the room. It was a moment that they would remember for the rest of their lives.
The father-daughter dance was a touching moment that had everyone in awe as they danced together, lost in the music and the memories that they were creating.
The toasts from their friends and family were heart-warming and filled with funny moments and inside jokes that had everyone laughing. It was evident that Erika and John were surrounded by so much love and support, and the atmosphere was electric.
The party that followed was legendary, with high-energy music that made it impossible for anyone to stay in their seats. It was a non-stop celebration of the love between Erika and John, with their friends and family joining them on the dance floor to create a night that they would never forget.
