Secluded Bates Nut Farm Wedding | Sarah & Sean

This Bates Nut Farm wedding with Sarah and Sean was a relaxed celebration that was a joy for me to shoot. Sarah and Sean are an easygoing couple that wanted their wedding photos to be natural, which matched my style perfectly. I loved capturing the couple’s sweet, candid moments. It reminded me exactly why photographing weddings will always be special to me.

Sarah and Sean’s Wedding Details

Sarah and Sean were in their element at this Bates Nut Farm wedding. It was refreshing to find little hints of their humor and fun-loving personality in the details. One that stood out was the feasting table that had a small chalkboard sign that read, “I love you with every pizza my heart.” It was a playful little wink at the guests.

And yes, there was lots of pizza at this Bates Nut Farm wedding, which was great!

This same playfulness of the couple can be seen in bursts of color in the decor and other details in their Bates Nut Farm wedding. This includes Sarah’s wedding bouquet and floral arrangements that had bright splashes of yellow against muted lilac and pink hues. 

But standing out from all the rest was Sarah in her timeless A-line wedding dress with a dramatic neckline. She paired it with platform heels and accessorized it with a pair of charming diamond earrings. Her look was elegant yet effortless, which was exactly how everything in this wedding was.

Rustic Bates Nut Farm Wedding Shoot

The couple wanted to get married in a secluded country venue that had a simple, light, and rustic feel. To me, this is the exact definition of a Bates Nut Farm wedding. With the venue’s quiet atmosphere, swathes of green as far as the eye can see, and rolling hills in the background, it’s not surprising why Sarah and Sean chose this venue.

My favorite part of the wedding shoot was capturing the couple at sunset. The golden sunlight surrounded the both of them as they walked hand-in-hand through nature. Golf carts made our journey easier, and it also allowed us to get some photos at the top of the hill. 

These were warm, candid moments at the wedding shared by the couple. Shooting during golden hour makes capturing these moments easy. Plus, it doesn’t take long to get good shots for the couple, and it doesn’t overwhelm them with everything else they have going on.

Knowing couples can get stressed, one of my goals as a wedding photographer is to make them feel relaxed while I take the shots. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Bates Nut Farm wedding, a more intimate wedding at Newport Beach, or a romantic shoot at Pasadena City Hall, wherever the wedding is, whatever the shots are, I want my couples to be happy and at ease.
