What a beautiful wedding to start off this wedding season! Brooke & Tim’s wedding had all the makings of a perfect day – the picturesque hills of Sonoma, a gathering of excited family & friends, pretty spring blooms, handmade touches, and a bride and groom that were just so in love. It was addressed throughout the day how they fit together so well – how Brooke’s bubbly personality and infectious laugh were just the perfect complement to Tim’s calm and cool demeanor. Hearing their heartfelt vows, watching them share a quiet laugh together during the reception, seeing their tears during the first look, proved this to be so true.

It had been raining for a week straight in the bay area leading up to their wedding and it poured the day after, but the skies were clear and the weather was beautiful for their wedding. It was the loveliest day!

Xinlei and Matt. I noticed it during our first Skype meeting, where we were all giggles. And during our windy engagement session, where you kept smiling despite the frigid wind and crazy cold. And during our emails, where you excitedly shared about the secret surprise dances {best gangnam style I’ve seen yet!} and late night cookie bar and other lovely plans for the wedding. That at the end of the night of your most amazing day, I asked if you’d like any other photos? And you said, yes, one more photo, with you :)

I know I rave about the couples I get to work with all the frickin’ time. But I really want everyone to know how ridiculously awesome people like Xinlei and Matt are. That with their smiles, and their warm silly personalities, and their trust, and their hugs – I never felt like this was my “job”. And for them to be that wonderful and gracious to someone they just met less than a year ago, I can’t imagine how much love they share with their family and friends. Or perhaps I can, thanks to having the honor of being there on their wedding day.

It was love, everywhere, all the time.

I really don’t think I could get tired of lovely vineyard weddings! Wendy & Jon’s day at the Vintner’s Inn was perfect in every way – beautiful weather, lots of joyous family and friends, and the sweetest couple.

A fun note: those beautiful jars of jam you see at the bottom of the post? Jon’s parents made and jarred every single one of them! They were completely organic and came in delicious flavors like apricot and pomegranate, and made awesome favors for the guests. Another fun note: his parents both came up to me at different times that day saying they follow my blog! Marks a first for me at a wedding, and seriously such an honor :)

Wendy & Jon, thank you so much for giving me the chance to be a part of your beautiful summer wedding!
