Andrea & John’s wedding at Meritage Resort & Spa in Napa is here! I’m so excited because as the images come together I’m realizing that the colors, the lighting, the textures, the florals – everything – are truly making for a stunning wedding gallery. But more importantly, as I look through these images, I’m seeing the natural smiles and happiness that this day was filled with. Plus I’m seeing so much of one more thing that Andrea & John’s personalities brought to their wedding unlike any other: humor. These are two vibrant, bright, hilarious, and fun, and so are their friends. So there was a whole lot of joking happening, in all the right ways. I loved every minute of photographing this day.
Today I’m bringing you part 1 of 2: from getting ready to ceremony and kisses. Tomorrow, we enter Meritage’s gorgeous Estate Wine Cave and see how that party went. Stay tuned for that post, with a little chit chat about achieving the photography you can be proud of even in a dark reception space (for my fellow photographers!).
