Katie and Ryan's Wedding at the Villa Chanticleer in Healdsburg

I traveled to the San Francisco area for my first wedding out of southern California. Talk about INCREDIBLE!! This trip was amazing, and to make it even better, I had my friend Blythe along to second shoot with me.

Another piece of news: I got a new camera~~, a Canon 30D--which made my life so much easier. Riley had posted an ad online and I jumped on it! My Nikon D50 didn't like to focus which was a big problem for a photographer :) So I bought it! Thankfully I had almost zero out of focus shots this time. yesssssss!

fall weddings are my cup of tea.
crisp, fresh, and they have the BEST COLORS!
i took this photo right after Katie's mom ironed the ribbons to the shoes. their family irons everything!
the pro ironer extraordinairre!
the rain made the day beautiful. the water stopped before the ceremony and left us with some awesome light!
pincurls + plate
Katie DOVE into her dress, literallywe had to wait a while to get let into the garden for some photos, but Katie was an amazing sport, despite the rain, and the cold, and the waiting.
we had fun standing there ;)Katie and Ryan decided to see each other before the ceremony, making for a stress-free day :) The first look is always a priceless moment and is amazing to watch. Look at how happy they are :) I am happy right now :)
these guys all ruled!these was one of the most fun bridal parties, ever
!!!
mmmmmm dancin.this one came straight out of the camera like this-- no filters, textures, tricks, levels, or color balances! its one of my favorites, because it reminds me of the dance ryan and katie like to do. you can see it here:! http://shannonleith.com/dancing

i love the movement in this one! It took me many tries to get, and i LOVE IT! a moment i caught through the window

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
