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!
