Comic Book Themed Wedding at Dawn Ranch Lodge – Miriam and Jay


It was our pleasure and honor recently to photograph the wedding of Miriam and Jay at the gorgeous Dawn Ranch Lodge in Guerneville. When we met this great couple we immediately fell in love with their idea for how they wanted to personalize their celebration: Miriam and Jay met at a comic book shop in Santa Cruz and wanted to bring their passion for this art form into the big day. We always love to hear about couples personalizing their wedding days and this seemed like a great way to do it.

Additionally, their wedding took place at one of our favorite venues in wine country – the rustic Dawn Ranch Lodge. We just love the great, expansive meadows and orchards that serve so well for outdoor ceremonies and even reception dinners. Miriam and Jay’s wedding was blessed with simply amazing weather considering it was already the beginning of December. We had a blast documenting their celebration and wish them all the best!

Here are some favorites from the day:






Miriam and Jay’s First Look was a sight to behold – everyone within sight was overwhelmed by emotions:




We couldn’t help but play with the beautiful leaves all around us in the Orchard:


Miriam’s bouquet was just WOW and Jay’s boutonniere had miniature comic book characters! How cool is that?




We loved all the emotional moments during the Ketubah Signing:








How about this sight and perfect weather for their Orchard ceremony?








Guests could not get enough of the Superman themed wedding cake! It was so much fun to photograph:






Congratulations, Miriam and Jay! We wish you many, many years of happiness together.
