This Pamplin Grove redwood forest wedding has my whole heart. Having successfully secured a date in the notoriously quick to book Van Duzen park, Katee reached out to say that Humboldt was their favorite place in the world and that Sky's parents were actually married in Pamplin in 1979. Since his mother passed away many years ago, Pamplin Grove holds a particularly special magic for the couple. Katee and Sky got ready with their wedding party at a family home in Rio Dell - Katee and her bridesmaids took over the guest house to keep her hidden - and both parties rolled to the grove in gorgeous vintage cars.
Magic is truly the right word for this day. I could not have been more honored to capture such an emotional celebration of love, life, friends and family. The tears, the laughter, the anticipation, the L-O-V-E all caps kind of love just radiating from every which way… I mean, I had to make this post into a two-parter.
