Such a beautiful Napa county wedding! This was one of those days – from the moment I picked up my camera until the very end of the night – where every single moment and every single detail was just perfect. The little bed & breakfast where Vicky & her bridesmaids got ready, that they had entirely to themselves? Perfect. The amazing nook with sun-dappled light we found for the first look? Perfect. This dreamy ranch & farmstead as the venue? Perfect. The ceremony officiated by a close friend, the playful lawn games, the cheerful clinking of glasses, the cozy campfires & smores to end the night? Oh, so, perfect.

But the truth of it all? Is that each and every one of these things was really made perfect by Vicky & Brian’s love, and the love extended to and from their friends and family there. It gave life & meaning to each pretty detail and each passing moment. Because when you have a love like this, your wedding day is most definitely guaranteed to be amazing.

I think I was actually in San Francisco for less than 4 hours, but I feel like we explored so much. Jennifer and Chris showed me their Nob Hill neighborhood, their little backyard tucked away in the city, the route they walk together to work, their fun socks, their contagious laughs, the stories of their relationship. We finished at the Ferry Buildling at Gotts, an eatery I have since added to my “favorites in SF” list, where we shared chatted over the best ahi burgers and sweet potato fries.

It was a short trip, but I feel like I got to know Jennifer and Chris so well – that they’re funny and down-to-earth and adventurous and totally my kind of people :) I can’t wait to see them again this fall {and work with So Happi Together too! double bonus!}

I knew Stephanie and Bruce would be amazing to work with from our initial Skype meeting, which was basically filled with laughter from beginning to end. This was reinforced when I flew to nor cal for their engagement session {they are huge foodies and picked the ultimate foodie location… coming to the blog soon!} and of course on their wedding day, which was packed with beautiful emotion. One of my favorite moments was during the ceremony when letters that Steph and Bruce had written to their parents were read aloud. Both families have experienced health-related hardships in the recent years, and for their parents to be present there to celebrate with them was so so special and meaningful.

I almost can’t even being to express how thankful and blessed I feel to have been a part of their wedding day, and the journey leading up to it. As Steph and Bruce had also sweetly expressed in a note they slipped to me at the end of the wedding, I feel like I’ve gained not just wonderful past clients, but wonderful friends along the way :)
