Northern California Wedding Planner | Gover Ranch Wedding - Nikki & Brock

We always do a little bit of photographer stalking when it comes to seeing images after a wedding day, but we were especially anxious for Nikki & Brock's wedding day.  These two had smiles on the whole day, and to say that Nikki was organized is an understatement.  Her lists and diagrams of how she envisioned her tables & decor set-up made our little planner hearts happy! 

Here's a sneak peek of there wedding at Gover Ranch and we can't wait to share more from Grace Aston Photography (read, she's amazing!)
