San Francisco Wine Country Wedding Photographer – Amy & Terje at Hans Fahden Vineyards in Calistoga
I knew I was going to love Amy and Terje right off the bat. Warm, friendly, incredibly intelligent, and very laid back they were so obviously a couple with their priorities in the right places. Their plans for the wedding were simple, relaxed, and down to earth – a beautiful space, a small guest list of their closest friends and family, good food, a great selection of beers, and some really incredible toasts – and dancing. There was no stressing out over insignificant details, no wedding party in matching dresses, and no tossing of garters – just a wonderful, intimate gathering of some truly wonderful people. Amy is the kind of person who was able to keep her five best friends from her freshman year at Harvard as tight as they had been as roommates, and Terje had friends make it from all over the world – as far flung as Tokyo and his native Norway. The ability to keep friendships like that over the years tells you so much about the kind of people they both are, and it is so obvious that they’ll be incredibly happy together.
Held at Hans Fahden Vineyards in Calistoga with cascading wisteria in full bloom, it was a gorgeous wedding. It was flawlessly planned by Ali DiLuvio Events, and couldn’t have been more charming or relaxed. Amy wore a gown from BHLDN that fit the mood perfectly, and from the outdoor ceremony beside to the pond, to the wine cave reception under twinkling string lights, it was just as lovely and sweet as could be.
All the best, you two!
