As the week of Melanie and Patrick’s wedding approached, I couldn’t help but get so excited for these two to finally get married! I love that this couple are so different yet compliment each other so well. Patrick is outgoing and the life of the party. Melanie is kind and relaxed. I think they bring out the best in one another and the fact that they both feel so lucky to have the other one, is probably the sweetest thing about them. One incredibly memorable moment from this wedding (among many!) was hearing the story of how this couple came to be. Patrick’s mom, who couldn’t stop smiling the whole day, shared with everyone how she always knew this couple would come together. Years ago, she bought 3 personalized Coca Cola bottles that said Mel & Pat At Last and told her son that they would open them at his wedding. She kept the promise and had them present as she gave her toast. It was a special moment that made everyone smile.

I love that Cara and Tony decided to marry, just the two of them, at the Inn on Randolph in downtown Napa. Not only did I get to capture this special moment, but also got to be their witness! After Cara and Tony said I Do, they toasted with a glass of wine and jumped in my car to explore some iconic Napa Valley spots for photos. These two wanted an authentic Napa experience and I think we achieved that for them. Cheers to this sweet, relaxed and beautiful couple!

And just a little shoutout to the Alyssia and the Inn on Randolph for organizing a perfectly intimate ceremony for these two!

When I first connected with Nichole about engagement photos in wine country, I knew we would be a good fit! She was enthusiastic, kind and organized. Pretty much my dream bride! When we met last week for her and Stephen’s session, it felt like old friends. We talked up a storm and explored some of my favorite spots in Napa. Being that Nichole and Stephen are from out of state, I decided to take them on a mini-tour of some iconic wine country landscapes. We started with an open field and oak trees, made our way to a little olive tree row off the side of the road and finished up at some vineyards right around sunset. The weather certainly showed off for these two, and even though it was a bit windy, it added to the organic and natural vibe of the shoot. Cheers to you both and wishing you a wonderful wedding!
