California Wine Country Wedding Photographer: Jen & Will at Clos La Chance Winery
In the rush of busy-season, I’ve fallen a little behind on blogging, but am so excited to start out 2014 with one of my favorite weddings of 2013 – Jennifer and Will’s gorgeous DIY wedding at Clos La Chance Winery, a beautiful property with rows of vines, rolling hills, and old oak trees nestled midway between San Jose and the Carmel Valley. I’d been counting down the days to their wedding since I did their engagement session the summer before, and it was even sweeter than I could have imagined.
Lively and bubbly, Jenn is the perfect outgoing counterpart to Will, who is a little steadier and more reserved – but they both share the same sense of humor. The two of them met while they were students at UC Berkeley and have been together ever since. It was clear that all of their friends and family were as excited about the two of them tying the knot as they were themselves, and there were tears and laughter on all sides (and possibly even a few behind the camera as well). With gorgeous flowers by Petals by Sophie, hair and makeup by the talented Chau Nguyen, and an adorable cake handmade by Jenn’s sister, Crystal, they day was as pretty as it was sweet. Daniel from Big Fun kept the dancefloor packed until the bitter end, and it got so warm that Jenn changed back into her cheongsam from the tea ceremony earlier in the morning. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day.
Many congratulations, you two! I hope your new year is off to as wonderful a start as your marriage!
