The day of Valerie and Chantz’s wedding was, simply, beautiful. The best weather, the bluest skies, the greenest vineyards, I walked outside and literally basked in the weather. What a wonderful day to celebrate a marriage. So many people traveled for this wedding, many coming from Seattle, and I don’t think you could have picked a more perfect venue to reflect the intimacy of the wedding that they had planned.
Valerie and her mom decorated the ceremony and reception with hand painted stars, and the wedding cake (one I had never seen before) was something Val had been dreaming of since childhood.
I knew from their engagement session what a fun, cute and laid back couple they were, but their wedding day just confirmed it. Standing outside taking their ring shots I looked up and thought, ‘oh my goodness! Where is the light going?’. It was fading a half hour before scheduled! Bad sun. So I hurried inside to grab them for their last romantic shots, and they are beautiful, enchanting, lovely.
I love her little, ‘I do’, on the bottom of her shoes. Chantz’s face when he picks her up? So cute! Of course, he did pretend to have a titanic moment. But don’t we all?
