Charlotte flew in from England the day before the wedding . Both of them have lived across the world and met each other several years ago when Shane was working as a tourguide (I am a little confused if this was in Argentina, Tahoe, or somewhere else… they really are transnational and it was hard to keep up with all the places they have lived). I love their story. In her vows Charlotte said, “I have loved you from the moment I met you,” and I could see in both their eyes that nothing could be more true. Like a good California software engineer, Shane can live and work everywhere and is currently in the process of moving to England to join Charlotte. As for me, I am grateful that of all places in the world they chose to get married right here in wine country, and that I was given the joy of being a part of their beautiful day.
Before we headed to the Russian Hill Winery I had the chance to spend a little while photographing Charlotte. I love everything from her soft simple dress to her gorgeous and beautifully serene, sincere smile.
