Wedding Engagement Party Lauren + Marcela

There are just NO words how much love Lauren and Marcela had not for just each other but for everyone who came up to the party to congratulate them. The love was so big that I found myself smiling from ear to ear as I photographed all the beautiful happy moments! And there were SO many I couldn’t stop snapping away. These two are absolutely stunning inside and out and they are over the moon excited to have met and start their lives together as are both of their families. I am so honored to have captured this beautiful engagement party complete with a Coachella style tent, incredible desserts, pizza oven and the most delicious paella you can taste. Everyone was so HAPPY to be there to celebrate at Marcela’s property in St. Helena which was nestled on a hilltop between vintage olive and oak trees. It was a magical evening and Arica of Events by Arica Grace turned the hilltop setting into a bohemian wonder of comfort and eye candy! What a night under the stars it turned out to be and I am so happy that this last year which was so hard to connect somehow Lauren and Marcela still found their way to each other. The proof is in the pudding they say and you just don’t get smiles bigger than these two have for each other. Big Congratulations and Love!

Wedding Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena. Napa Valley, CA. Sarah and Nick.

I am in love with being a wedding photographer at The Culinary Institute of America as it is not only an exquisite wedding venue architecturally but the food is divine of course!  The light in these artistic wedding photos I took of Sarah and Nick is gorgeous and I loved capturing their couple wedding portrait photos in the vineyards and at their hotel, The Harvest Inn, in St. Helena beforehand. It was the most gorgeous wedding and Nick is a dress designer and he custom made Sarah’s dress!  At the wedding reception there was a beautiful video montage of him making her dress so it was so touching to see all the details he put into it.  Love this couple and hoping more creative endeavors in their future.

Wedding proposal Photographer at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Arlene & Carlos.

Chris proposed to Arlene at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena. This sweet couple is from Miami, and their friends hired me as a surprise wedding proposal photographer. Every moment of this day was full of emotion. I cried! so hard I couldn’t barely see through the lens as I was photographing Arlene say I do!  It was the most gorgeous day and I can’t wait for the awesome couple’s wedding!

 

Wedding photographer at Solage Auberge Resort, Napa Valley in wine country. Andie and Lee.

Andie and Lee had an absolutely lovely wedding ceremony and reception at the Solage Auberge Resort in Napa Valley. (And check out her incredible something-blue shoes!)  As a wedding photographer in Napa I love photograhing at Solage Auberge because the grounds are spectacular for your wedding photography.  Whether I am blowing out the bokeh in the floral and fauna to get gorgeous natural light and artistic wedding photos or am using light inside to highlight their incredible art to use as a background….it’s all so amazing! Wishing Andie and Lee the most beautiful life together filled with more time at this gorgeous resort!
