Danica & Matt's Wedding: Testarossa Winery, Los Gatos, CA

Danica and Matt had an intimate wedding with close family friends at the Testarossa Winery. Their ceremony took place in the wine cave and was preceded by a signing of the traditional Jewish document, the ketubah.

Matt's daughter walked him down the aisle before Danica made her entrance, glowing in her perfectly fitting wedding dress and carrying the most delicate white orchids. She was also carrying what is soon to be the newest member of their family!

The love and tenderness between these two was so sweet to witness. 

The ketubah is a traditional Jewish document which documents the rights and responsibilities of the couple in their marriage. This personalized ketubah came all the way from Romania!

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!
