Calistoga Ranch Wedding with Rustic Country Charm and Al Fresco Farm Table Reception. Megan and Mark.

I mean is that table every farm country table fantasies or what?  I’ll answer for you.  It is.  Because I am one of them.  I almost passed out and not just from excitement but from having to run around it to get a shot I could see.  I have never wanted flying super powers more in my life as a wedding photographer.  I was like oh look at that moment…..and start running.  Haha.  Anyways I managed to get some awesome rustic gem wedding photography for Megan and Mark whom are both lovely.  Mark and two girls and Megan is the best step mom you could ask for.  Calistoga Ranch Weddings are what brides dream of if you are a fan of wine country  luxury with a Rustic Country Charm.

Wedding at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg. Sonoma County. Kira and Jeremy.

A truly beautiful wine country wedding at Soda Rock Winery in the Alexander Valley close to Healdsburg.  These wedding images were so dynamic and fun to shoot in the barn with the natural light screaming in from all the cracks and crannies.  Talk about an exquisite rustic backdrop for your wedding photos to be taken.  There were so many emotional photos to take but mostly there was laughter!  Kira’s Dad gave the welcome toast and gave the couple baseball hats to their opposing teams they are fans of.  Then I loved taking the dance photos as Kira just rocked out in true rock star form with Jeremy cheering her on.  You can’t go wrong getting married at Soda Rock Winery with their incredible backdrop of vineyards to take your wedding images and their rustic barn to have your wedding ceremony in. Cheers to Kira and Jeremy!

 

Wedding at Renaissance Lodge Sonoma. Annie and Chris

What a fantastic venue the Renaissance Lodge in Sonoma, is to get married at!  You can use their gorgeous lobby to produce Annie Leibovitz type wedding photos of your bridal party or utilize their driveway as an incredible backdrop for your wedding images of your family photos.  The courtyard is exceptional for your wedding ceremony and the light is perfect to capture your vows on camera.  Such fun and playful images were captured of Annie and Chris….I particularly love the photo of Chris getting caught in Annie’s veil when we were taking the couple photographs right after the ceremony.  We had a blast taking all these fun and artistic wedding photographs!

Wedding photographer at Hans Faden Winery in Calistoga, CA- Sonoma County. Jess and Ben.

The Gardens at Hans Faden Winery in Sonoma County or so spectacular your wedding photography will just buzz with flora and fauna.  Not to mention the wine cave where you can dance the night away to candle light.  Jess and Ben both live in Los Angeles but wanted to have their wedding in wine country and when they found Hans Faden Winery they fell in love all over again.  There’s ponds, bridges, gazebos, a barn and caves.  What more could you want for your wedding venue?  Such a sweet couple that wanted to be playful in their couple weddings photography so I had them stick their tongues out at each other by the barn and they were laughing hysterically.  It was a very fun and festive wedding and I was soooo happy to be their wedding photographer….especially since my home town of Petaluma is just a hop, skip and a jump away!
