Tony & Ashley’s DeLorimier Wedding in Geyserville, CA highlights

Ive been waiting for this day every since I photographed their beautiful engagement session at Bodega Bay many months ago. These two high school sweethearts have the kind of chemistry one could only hope for. They so calmly and unintentionally compliment one another, support and love one another. Im so honored to have documented their wedding day.

When I arrived Ashley was calmly getting ready in one of the beautiful rooms DeLorimier has on their property and Tony was inside the main house with his groomsmen and family members. Both of them at ease, full of smiles really just anticipating the moment they get to see each other. Ashley looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sortero gown with caped sleeves that loosely hung on her arms with the most perfect flower crown Ive ever seen.  Tony, didn’t disappoint either in his linen suit and a tie that happened to match the dogs collar. When the two first saw each other during their first look, it was the kind of moment no words could describe, I know myself and second shooter Christy had a hard time keeping it together, these two are perfect for one another.

Their ceremony took place under DeLorimier’s beautiful arbor in their courtyard, surrounded by 80 of their closest friends and family. Their short but sentimental ceremony was immediately followed by cocktail hour when I took the two away for a few shots (lets be real more like 300) under the beautiful oak tree in the vineyards. After delicious plated dinners by Sally Tomatoes, toasts and beautiful first dances, I whisked the two away for the most gorgeous sunset images Ive ever seen.

So, for now here are some highlight images from their wedding day. A full gallery will posted once I finish editing this gorgeous wedding.

Big thank you to Sarah for allowing this day to run so smooth and the rest of the amazing vendors who made this day so special

Justin & Adriana met me at a beautiful state park in Santa Rosa, CA for their engagement session. I met Adriana a few years ago through her cousin, Alexa who was one of my high school senior representatives. Just like Alexa, Adriana is a complete sweetheart and not to mention has a killer wardrobe. We spent the sunset hour walking around the hill tops and chasing light. These two effortlessly loved on one another and praised each other, a true delight to me as a photographer. Unfortunately, Im booked for their wedding day but Im so honored to have documented their love story. This is just the beginning you two.

A look into Chris & Lindsay’s beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Geyserville Inn. The couple was surrounded by their closest friends and family when they exchanged vows and took some of the most beautiful sunset images Ive ever seen. Loved working with this couple and this venue! Congratulations you two!

Justin & Holli’s wedding hit a special spot in my heart. Maybe its the way they looked at each other, how calm, gracious and generous Holli was, or maybe it was because when I envision my own fairytale wedding I think intimate, outdoors and romantic, all three were the theme of Justin and Hollis wedding.

Believe it or not, their wedding day was the first time these two have ever seen or toured their venue, Simi Winery. Lucky for them, Simi Winery provides THE most beautiful backdrop for a wedding, finished head to toe in romantic details from the small waterfall in the background to the the stone inlay found everywhere, all surrounded by tall romantic redwoods.

Holli looked absolutely stunning in her straight line gown, hair pulled halfway back finished with amazing makeup by the very talented Brittney Rhoades, owner of Makeup by Brittney Lee. She was so calm and collected while getting ready but the minute her eyes laid on Justin, tears ran down. When Justin saw Holli his expression was priceless, beaming with pride and love.

Congratulations to you two!

Bret and Sylvia’s wedding hit a soft spot in my heart, probably because their vision was so similar to mine: GREAT good, BEAUTIFUL scenery, and LAUGHING with the ones you love the most. Vine Hill House, in my hometown Sebastopol, CA was a perfect venue to do so, with scenery of the gorgeous O’Connel vineyards, alongside with the Sebastopol heirloom of the Gravenstien apple and many other varieties of apples.

Sylvia was all smiles while getting ready in the guest house at Vine Hill House with her sister, mother and makeup and hair team surrounding her. The love between her and her family not only during her getting ready but through out the entire day was so fulfilling to witness. I think one of my favorite moments of the day was when Sylvia’s sister, Sossy saw her in her dress for the first time, immediate tears of joy rolled in. Sylvia and Bret opted for a first look in the O’connel vineyards, and Im so glad they did.

Encore Event Rentals over did themselves with their absolutely gorgeous lounge furniture. Pair the amazing furniture with amazing food from Grapevine Catering, you have a win win. Sylvia and Bret spend their Sundays cooking and eating together, they wanted this to reflect on their wedding day. A job well done! They had Sylvias Amernian food, gorgeous caprese salad to chicken and waffles. Comfort food done so elegantly. Loved it!

Couples like Jodi and Devon solidify my decision to be a Sonoma County wedding photographer. As much as Im able to give them the gift I have, they give me a gift of showing and reminding that true love exists, that happiness can be achieved and the future looks very, very bright. I love wedding days, and being the one to document it but engagement sessions are a time where there is less pressure, no timeline to follow and its just them without anyone around and they get to be more relaxed which makes me love engagement sessions the most.

I can not wait to photograph these two on their wedding day at Wild Oak Saddle Club,  the way Devon looks at Jodi is beyond any words I could ever write. So I wont, and Ill let the photos do the talking.

One of my very favorite parts of being a Sonoma County wedding photographer is capturing a couples engagement session. Its a session that’s dedicated to them as a couple when they can be more carefree, relaxed and themselves without the pressure of the timeline on their wedding day. I pride myself in the fact of creating authentic images, ones with emotion and romance but yet not forced. Making couples move, make them talk to each other or me, making them end up at a pose in my head I know I want but guiding them along the way, all these things play a role into the outcome of a session. These two however needed zero guidance, the way Ronnie looks at Janette? Even I couldn’t make that up.

Im so fortunate to document their special day. Congrats you two!

Had such a great time photographing Heather & George’s beautiful engagement session. This was our second shot scheduled shoot as the first date it poured, if you live in Northern California you know we are getting buckets of rain lately. It did rain a little bit on their engagement session but they were prepared with darling bubble umbrellas and embraced the weather. These two are adorable together, all smiles and couldn’t stop kissing, in fact I dont think I had to tell them once to kiss. I cant wait for their fall wedding at the gorgeous Deer Park Villa. Oh, can you all take a look at Heather’s engagement ring? Good job George!

I was honored to be able to capture The Event Co’s gorgeous styled geo inspired shoot at the beautiful Mountain House Estate located in Cloverdale. Styled shoots are a perfect way for creatives to get together and produce gorgeous images without the pressure of an actual wedding day. Its been years Ive actually gotten the time to set aside to participate in a styled wedding shoot and this one did not disappoint.

You can see the featured publication here at one of my favorite wedding blogs The Perfect Pallete

Thank you to the wonderful vendors who made this shoot possible
