Cara & Mike - Carneros Resort & Spa Wedding in Napa, California

I am so excited to finally share Mike & Cara's wine country wedding! Mr. & Mrs. Leonardo said 'I do' on a beautiful September afternoon with the rolling hills of Napa Valley as their backdrop. Carneros Resort & Spa is located southwest of Napa with a quaint yet urban farmhouse feel. If you are visiting Northern California wine country, I highly recommend booking your stay here. 

M & C chose beautiful greenery and hues of purple to accent the stunning resort grounds. Their ceremony was held beneath the palm trees, overlooking Napa Valley. The bride's Carolina Herrera gown was an absolute show stopper. The day was filled with tears of joy, laughter and cheek aching smiles. These two soaked in every minute of their wedding weekend. 

Mr. & Mrs. Leonardo, getting to know the two of you has been an absolute joy. I wish you nothing but the best, and a lifetime of love and happiness.

Jacqui & Ben - Glen Ellen, CA Engagement Session

Jacqui & Ben met about 10 years ago while both living in LA. They both found themselves in the same friend group, but were living separate lives. They lost touch over the years but reconnected while Ben was up in San Francisco visiting a friend. Jacqui saw he was in town via Instagram, contacted him to hang out, and the rest is history. 

J & B both have very welcoming personalities We met in Glen Ellen with their dog, Baxter, to pop some champagne, snap a few photos and ended up grabbing a bite to eat post session. We chatted, ate one of the best burgers at a local dive bar and sipped on more wine while Jacqui became BFFs with a local who had mistaken her for a family friend. These two make everyone around them feel like family. 

Hannah & Ricardo Wedding - Fort Mason Center Gallery 308, San Francisco, CA

Hannah & Ricardo are the kindest souls I have ever met. These two have this calming vibe about them, that is noticeable the second you are in their presence. They currently live in Houston, but decided to get married where Hannah grew up.

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. The architecture is absolutely stunning. Breathtaking views can be found all over the city. It also has this sophisticated elegance, yet laid back feel that I love. If you have never visited, you are missing out. 

The bridal party got ready at the Mark Hopkins Hotel before strolling around the city a bit for bridal party photos. We came across a gorgeous courtyard full of greenery, also blocked from the breeze coming off the Bay. H&R's ceremony and reception were both held at Fort Mason Center Gallery 308, full of natural light pouring in the warehouse windows, transformed into a beautifully lit dance party as the night capped. 

H&R: I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. You are both absolutely wonderful people who deserve nothing but the best.
