Christina and Daniel are married {Sebastapol Redwood Hill Gardens Wedding Photographer}

Wine, friends, food. Christina and Daniel wanted to bring their closest family and friends together for their wedding celebration at Redwood Hill Gardens in the gorgeous Sebastapol hills. The air was warm, bees buzzed softly and the fresh rain had left the air smelling fresh and sweet. Christina and her bridesmaids got ready amidst laughter and Daniel and his groomsmen hunkered down in the man-cave waiting for the ceremony to start. Christina’s uncle walked her down the aisle into the arms of Daniel. Daniel’s father played the guitar while his mother completed a touching reading. The couple planted a tree in honor of their budding marriage. I was so touched to be there to document all of the special and very sweet touches Christina worked tirelessly to put together!

Christina and Daniel also incorporated Italian influence in their wedding. They decided to honeymoon before their ceremony and spent time in Italy, dabbling in their shared love of photography, and enjoying the experience.

At their wedding, every member of the bridal party gave a toast to the new couple, sharing anecdotes, kind words, and a few tears. Daniel’s parents graciously doted on the new couple, sharing many hugs and much affection. His sisters also spent the evening dancing with Christina, their new sister in law. The family ties here are so strong, Daniel’s parents and sisters have welcomed Christina as their own. She will now and forever on be a part of their family.

Daniel and Christina, I wish you both all the best in your new life together as husband and wife! Congratulations!

Lindsey and Gordon’s Chambers Landing Wedding {Lake Tahoe Homewood Wedding Photographer}

I made my way to Homewood, Lake Tahoe for Lindsey and Gordon’s Chambers Landing wedding. The pine trees stood tall in the late summer sun. The alpine lake just beyond the venue was still and peaceful, blue as ever, and awe inspiring.

I first spoke with Lindsey about her wedding at the Barn and Chambers Landing last year. We chatted about her little dog and her new home in San Francisco. She was building a new life here in California with her then fiancé, Gordon. I was honored to photograph her welcome dinner the night before the wedding day. Her parents filled me in on their week in Tahoe. They just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary the week prior and Lindsey and Gordon took them out to dinner to celebrate. Gordon’s parents were equally as lovely, smiling and making the rounds with their closest family and friends. They invited everyone to the big welcome dinner to start the wedding weekend off with a bang!

When I arrived at the cabin the following morning I knew the day would be amazing. Lindsey was so calm, gracious, and her sweet demeanor kept the day’s pace enjoyable. She had planned her wedding to perfection and once she finally laid her eyes on Gordon I could tell she was thoroughly enjoying herself. Gordon had a great time with his friends from Duke and Lindsey’s bridesmaids surrounded her with so much love and support.

It was a sentimental day, one for the history books. Congratulations to the very happy couple! I wish Lindsey and Gordon the very best in their new life together as husband and wife.
