Moira and Matt’s stunning Napa Valley celebration {Charles Krug Winery Wedding Photographer}

I have been looking forward to Moira and Matt’s wedding all year, and their beautiful Charles Krug Winery affair did not disappoint. You might remember this couple from their San Francisco engagement too! Yes, the venue was gorgeous and the food was delicious and the details were perfectly planned. These are not the reasons I was so excited for this special day. Moira has the biggest heart, the most gracious and gentle way about. She is so lovely inside and out. Her family traveled a bit in her youth and she grew up in South America, has explored the middle east, and spent a couple years as a ballerina in Korea. She is a force to be reckoned with.

Enter Matt. This amazing couple met on match.com. As the many puns in the toasts clarified…their match was a match made on match! A match unlike any other. They are truly made for each other. As Moira and Matt spent their wedding day relishing the guests who journeyed great distances, the food and wine, their amazingly supportive bridal party, they honestly took moments to themselves. They were both at peace, so relaxed, and so affectionate throughout the day. It is always so inspiring to me to witness such pure love and devotion.

As the ceremony concluded beneath the towering redwoods, Moira and Matt ran down the aisle laughing. Finally they were married! Their lives are now intertwined forever. I am certain never to be parted. They have searched for their perfect partner and in each other they have found their happily ever after. I am excited for this next stage in their life, when they journey the world together. Yet always at home with each other. It really doesn’t matter when Matt and Moira end up. They have found their forever home with each other. There is no place that means more to them.

Congratulations to this special couple.

Fatima and Stephen’s Moss Beach Engagement {Half Moon Bay Wedding Photographer}

It was blissfully foggy, overcast, and jaw-droopingly gorgeous the day Fatima and Stephen drove down to Moss Beach to meet me for their engagement session. Stephen’s son came along too and I had the best time hiking around the beautiful cypress groves and exploring the beach with this group. It is hard to envision a place as pretty as Moss Beach, the photos online just do not do it justice. If you are ever on the coast you really need to make your way out to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and neighboring trails.

Fatima is busy planning her 2015 wedding and we were able to match up our calendars and meet near Half Moon Bay for a beach session to celebrate their engagement. Stephen proposed in Monterey and the ocean and coast mean so much to them. Moss Beach was a nice second bet for their engagement backdrop and the scenery did not disappoint. Fatima has perfect taste, planning out a lovely engagement session for us. Her florist made a lovely floral crown and she found the cutest wifey and hubby t-shirts for her and Stephen. So fun!

The sun dipped below the horizon before we made it down to the beach. It was getting dark, but still so pretty. The coastal houses began turning on their lights and golden light shimmered in the background on the cliffs behind us. The air was chilly but this couple snuggled and walked hand in hand to keep each other warm. The little guy spent his time checking out the sea life in the low tide and had a blast hanging out with his dad and future step-mom. It was a perfect day!

I wish this amazing couple all the best in their wedding planning! I cannot wait for their big celebration next June. It is going to be incredible.
