Remember way back in July when we gave you all a little sneak peek of uber-fabulous, adorable couple Sarah and Chad?  Well, now that now that the busy summer season is behind us, we thought it would be a great idea to revisit this couple’s unique, lighthearted day to remind us of the wonderful time that was had by all.

Bride and Groom laughing in Capitol Park, Sacramento

So cute!

Sarah and Chad are one of those couples you just can’t help but love.  They are so happy and sweet together, and they’re constantly grinning and making each other laugh.  The best part about these two?  They don’t hesitate to let you in on their little jokes and make you feel like an instant friend.  Well, the girls here at Catrina Maria Designs absolutely L-O-V-E Sarah and Chad and we had a blast planning their wedding and seeing it come off beautifully.  Their ceremony was held at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, and the reception at Sacramento’s swanky Sutter Club.  If we could sum up their wedding day in one word, it would have to be unique.  From strutting their stuff down the street to the music of a New Orleans jazz band, to taking over the garage rooftop at the Sutter Club, Sarah and Chad had a day that was truly their own.  More details on this fabulous couple and their utterly unique wedding day to come soon!  {A huge thank you to Jessamyn Harris Photography for letting us use these gorgeous photos!}
