Jen & Joe's Wedding: Eagle Vines Vineyard & Golf Course, American Canyon, CA

When Jen contacted me about photographing her wedding, she was so excited about having a husband and wife team document her big day. That's because, in Jen's world, family is always first. She made it very clear that the most important thing to her about captuirng her wedding day was the people they'd be celebrating with. Her daughters were going to be her bridesmaids. Her granddaughter was the sweetest flower girl. And their other friends and family who would be celebrating with them were there because they had been there with Jenn and Joe through thick and thin. They wanted to celebrate their love with the people who mattered the most. And we were so grateful they chose us to capture their day. 

Jen and Joe got ready with the help of her beautiful daughters at Vino Bello Resort in Napa.

Before the wedding, Jen had a special gift delivered to Joe, who is a huge sports fan. Check out the awesome baseball boutonniere that Jen had custom made for him! So cool!

They did a first look at the resort before heading to Eagle Vines for their ceremony and reception. The warm yellow walls made such a pretty backdrop. 

We stole Jen & Joe away from the reception for a super quick portrait session in the hills above the golf course just before the sun set. In order to get there, we took an unforgettable ride in a golf cart, as the club employee swiftly and dutifully made sure we made it up there before the sun set. We made it just in time!

We then returned to the festivities as Jen & Joe and their guests danced the night away in a huge celebration of love and laughter. 

Jen & Joe were surrounded with so much love on their wedding day! It was a joy to capture so many fun and special moments for them as they celebrated with their friends and family. We are so glad they chose us, and we wish them the best in their future together!

Venue Spotlight: Eagle Vines Vineyards & Golf Club, American Canyon, Napa Valley

We'll be photographing a wedding late this summer at this great venue in American Canyon, Eagle Vines Vineyards & Golf Club. After booking the wedding I went to do some Internet research on the venue but didn't find a lot online. I recently made a trip up to check things out with the bride and her most important ladies. I had actually never been to the area before, but was pleasantly surprised at how close it is to the East Bay, and even more awed at how beautiful it is!

Behind the clubhouse, in the midst of views of green grass, rolling hills, and lush vineyards, they've got a great tent to hold your reception. There is a creek trickling by, a grassy open space where you can hold your ceremony, and vineyards just to the right. As you'll see below, the interior of the tent has a nice rustic vibe that can be customized to go along with your style. 

We had lunch in the clubhouse restaurant while we were there. The restaurant staff, as well as the event staff, were all extremely friendly and accommodating. See the bottom of this post for contact information.

There is a lot more to see around the grounds, but this was just a sneak peek. You'll have to check back to see the actual wedding photos some time in September!

After my visit, I am even more excited about coming back to photograph my lovely bride on her special day!

If your looking for a Napa style wedding venue I encourage you to check this place out!
