You've heard of two peas in a pod, well this next cute real-life couple are two hops in an IPA. With close family connections to the Sierra Nevada brewery, you can say spirits were definitely high and the whole night was "hop"ing! 

Keep scrolling to find some fabulous wedding photos and a whole post-ceremony shoot in the hop fields. Find every last detail captured by AVH Photography in the full gallery below too.

The Couple

Theses two Paradice, CA natives are a couple of the sweetest individuals you will ever meet. They are best friends and have so much fun together, their connection is a real wedding dream.

The Groom: Brian is a videographer and has high filmmaking expectations (obviously) and he hired my friend Jordan at World Love Weddings. My fiance (and second shooter) has a bromance with Jordan (and now Brian), so the 3 of us had a blast covering Haley and Brian's day. At the end of the evening, they were literally running through hop fields with their vendor team - it was incredible.

The Bride: Haley's mom has been the event coordinator at the Sierra Nevada since it's humble beginnings. They no longer allow weddings there - so Haley told me "Get as many photos as you want because this is never happening again"

The Wedding

The Ceremony: This took place at a beautiful location called "The Island" It's surrounded by the Chico Creek - hence the name. It's a little gem of a spot.

The Reception: The banquet hall of the Big Room at Sierra Nevada was so warm and cozy - you could feel the energy and the love. At sunset, we got to tour the hop fields for photos and the end result is magic.
Back at the party, Sierra Nevada beer was flowing, they busted out glow sticks (meant for the pool randomly) at the end so we had some fun with different flash techniques like rear curtain sync.
