A Nature Reserve Day After Shoot: Jillian & Dustin

After falling in love with Jillian & Dustin’s rockstar wedding which I saw on Style Me Pretty last month, I was thrilled when photographer Sarah Maren asked me if I’d like to feature their day after shoot. They were married at The Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento, California on 4th November 2011.

“Their wedding was full of images with the lights of downtown as their background so when we decided on their day after session we decided to do a the pictures in a more natural setting,” Sarah Maren told me. “We used a nature reserve in Roseville, California as the backdrop for their shoot. Since they chose not to see each other before the ceremony on their wedding day all of their couple pictures were taken after dark, so it was such fun to have them out in the beautiful winter light.”

“Their wedding consultant, Kate Miller of Kate Miller Events, was on hand to help with the styling of the shoot. Shannon Cosgrove-Rivas of Flourish recreated Jillian’s wedding bouquet for her using the brooches and pearls from her original bouquet and paired them with wooden and silk flowers to create the bouquet Jillian used for the shoot. Jillian’s hair and makeup was done by the incredible team at Hello Glam.”

Gorgeous! Thank you to Jillian & Dustin and photographer Sarah Maren for sharing these with us today.
