Friday’s Resort and McCloud Mercantile Wedding |California Wedding Photographer

McCloud is a gem of Northern California. This small town tucked away in the shadow of Mount Shasta is a blast from the past – with a picturesque downtown area of small businesses centered around the gorgeous McCloud Mercantile.

Carli and Paul’s wedding was a beautiful hybrid between two locations – Friday’s RV Resort for their gorgeous ceremony with a perfect view of Mount Shasta, and McCloud Mercantile for their lively and fun reception that was so full of love.

One of our favorite parts of the reception was the DJ – the one and only Rudi Bega – who spun VINYL. Not a playlist, not a CD or tapes, but good old fashioned Vinyl. Don’t get us wrong – we have a lot of DJ’s we LOVE who don’t spin vinyl – but we (especially Crist) love the experience of listening to, playing, and dancing with vinyl. Rudi did an incredible job of mixing the tracks and brought a fun loving, laid back, and engaging vibe to the entertainment of the night. You can reach out to him here.

Both Friday’s RV Resort and the Mercantile provided excellent space for the events of the day. One of our favorite parts of the McCloud Mercantile is that since the building is also a hotel, guests and wedding party were able to stay right on site – so after all the reception fun, everyone was just steps away from their room for the evening.

All in all, it was a fantastic day, filled with beautiful people, tons of love, and so many great memories!

Why we (really) shoot weddings

Relationships are not always a walk in the park on a sunny day.

Sometimes it feels like you’re walking in the wind, in a thunderstorm without an umbrella, you know? But when you’re TOGETHER in that storm with the perfect someone, it's always worth it. 

We know from experience in how life changing a positive intimate relationship can be (seriously, if you’d have met both of us prior to our marriage you wouldn’t believe it was us). We get to cheer each other on, call each other out, and choose to love each other in every moment. It’s the best. It’s simple, but it’s sacred. 

And THAT is why we do what we do.

It’s our mission to support every couple: help you relax and stay present, from your first call with us to the moment you’re cuddled up scrolling through your wedding gallery and wiping away fresh tears. 

It’s our honor to capture every wedding, because we recognize the sacredness of your love and relationship. 

Totally chill if that’s not your thing (it’s a pretty sappy WHY but it’s real), so no hard feelings if you want to just head back to google now. But if this hit you in the feels, we’ve got you 👀
