The day was magical, and I had a pretty good idea coming into it that it would be. Over the course of the last several months I’ve had the fantastic pleasure of getting to know two people that really are meant to be. They’ve known each other since they were five, playing in the same parks and going to school together in Los Altos, CA. And when they finally realized that their deep friendship was more than coincidence magic entered. This magic came to fruition on their wedding day at Trentadue Vineyards in Geyserville. From the laughter, hugs, toasts, and celebration it was obvious that it was as if all their friends and family finally officially and legally became the family they already were. They spent the weekend hanging out in wine country in some gorgeous homes and celebrating Jess and Tommy. Apart, they are each people that are a joy to know. Together they complement each other’s strengths and are one of the most fun and sweet couples you could have as friends.
While the sun poured down from above and sweat rolled down our faces and filled our shirts they were married amidst the vineyards and rolling hills that typify Northern California. Everything at Trentadue was gorgeous. Every detail in the reception hall: the food, the flowers and decorations, the cake, and even the “Bride and Groom” signs Jess painted herself were all perfect. We even were given a full moon, which allowed us to shoot some of my favorite portraits of the day. With gratitude I now share with you a few of my favorite images. Thanks also to Amanda for joining me for the day.
