If you’re looking to have a Sacramento garden wedding you need to see Maren and Tyler’s gorgeous wedding at the Gardens at Sutter Creek. It’s a total hidden gem that makes you feel like you’re in a tropical paradise, hidden garden oasis, and rustic barn setting all while feeling extremely cohesive.

This venue had it ALL! No matter where we were or what gorgeous backdrop we were in front of, Maren & Tyler were the dreamiest ever!! I *literally* could not pick my jaw up off the floor.

I’ve known Maren since high school and have always loved her!! She is super sweet, laidback, and has perfect side of goofiness that I adore!! Tyler also went to my high school but I never personally knew him, but my husband knew him a bit from baseball!!

So anywayyyys, when Maren and Tyler booked me for their wedding, I was so freakin’ excited to be a part of their day and to get to know Tyler!!! I came home from their engagement session last year and the first thing I told my husband was “wow Tyler is possibly theeeeee nicest person I’d ever met” and Sam was like yeah, duh everyone knows that.

My Favorite Part…

Their beautiful Sacramento garden wedding had so much heart. It was truly a reflection of their relationship and the amazing community of people they have in their lives!!! The florist was one of Maren’s best friends, the bartenders were friends, and all the guests seemed to somehow be connected to each other through life in Sacramento!!! And everyone in their wedding party has been a best friend of theirs since childhood, and you could feel the love of so many years!!!
