I really can’t get enough of the fact that my wife and I live smack-dab in the middle of wine country. With Santa Cruz & Monterey to the South, and Napa, Sonoma, and the Russian River to the North, their is an endless supply of fantastic wine. Very rarely do I find myself drinking wine from anywhere other than 100 miles from my house… and I love that. I also love that beautiful people come from around the world to celebrate their wedding in my backyard. Its like the locals get to share this lovely secret that is Northern California with everyone else that comes by. Leslie and Brad may not have come from around the world, but they came from Texas. They knew they wanted a simple unpretentious wedding that celebrated their relationship, and that is exactly what they designed (with the help of the wonderful staff at the Farmhouse Inn and Russian Hill Estate). After their intimate ceremony we spent a couple hours shooting before they cut their cake.
