Napa Valley Wedding Photographer: Mallory & Matt at B.R. Cohn Winery in Sonoma

Mallory and Matt got married on a warm June day in Sonoma at B.R. Cohn Winery, surrounded by sweeping views of rolling vineyards dotted by oak trees and their incredibly kind families.  Beautiful from beginning to end and understatedly elegant, their wedding was the perfect fit for the two of them.  They met while doing research in the same lab, and Mallory’s friends immediately knew that she had found The One when they saw the change in her – normally very reserved, she completely lights up in Matt’s presence.  And from the way he looks back at her, it’s easy to see that they’re going to have a long and happy life together.

A huge thank you to their amazing planner, Kristen from Sugar Rush Events who did such an wonderful job of putting together the perfect day.  With gorgeous florals by Poppystone Designs, a darling cake by Sweetie Pies Bakery, catering by Elaine Bell, and vintage inspired furniture from Wine Country Party Rentals it couldn’t have been lovelier from start to finish.  Many thanks also to Missy Craig who did Mallory’s stunning hair, to Stacy McClure who did her make-up, to Tony of NorCal Pro Sound who kept the dance floor packed all night, and of course to Ashley from B.R. Cohn for being such a pleasure to work with and helping the day run so smoothly!

Congratulations, you two and all my warmest wishes for the years to come!

California Wine Country Wedding Photographer: Jamie & Jason at Murrieta’s Well in Livermore

Jamie and Jason’s wedding was one of those days that just couldn’t have been lovelier.  From the stunning bride who was beyond elegant in her flowing Reem Acra gown, to the equally handsome groom whose suit was perfect down to the smallest detail, it would be easy to get distracted by what a good looking couple they make – but they are in all ways just as kind, intelligent, thoughtful, and fun as they are photogenic.  Even their smallest interactions speak to how much care and concern they have for one another, and it’s easy to see that they will always take good care of each other.  How could two people like them not have an amazing life together?

They exchanged their totally charming hand-written vows (which had every one there laughing one minute and getting a little choked up the next) on a warm day in early June at one of my favorite venues in the Livermore Valley, Murrieta’s Well, in front of its beautiful 1880’s winery surrounded by rolling vineyards on every side.   Every bit of the day was charming down to the smallest detail; I just couldn’t get over the groom and groomsmen’s navy blue ties and bow-ties with a small pink floral print that tied in with the bridesmaid’s blush pink gowns.  A huge thanks to my awesome second shooter, Nicole, to the the always wonderful staff at Murrieta’s Well who make my job so easy, as well as to Susan Kelly of Three Sisters, who did the beautiful florals that were a perfect compliment to the space, Tiffany Chiang of Design Her Image who did the bride’s stunning hair and makeup, and Robert Dean of In The Mix who I have to thank for this truly epic dance floor.

Congratulations and all my warmest wishes for the future!
