It is with an exorbitant amount of pleasure that I share this wedding today. I’ve been a little lax in blogging so far this year, but I couldn’t help making this post a little longer than usual. I love wine country, I love being a wedding photographer in wine country, and Helwig Winery is a gem in the midst of Amador county! From across the country Alina planned the perfect wedding and guest after guest remarked to me how much fun they were having and how perfect everything was. And from the moment I arrived to shoot the ladies getting ready I saw the smile on Alina’s face, expressing the joy that filled her heart, and filled the day with beauty and laughter. Surrounded by the rolling hills of vineyards this couple, truly perfectly matched, committed to each other for life.
On a personal note, there is no-one I enjoy working with on a wedding day more than Ann, of Lux Premier Events, who is tireless in her ambition to coordinate weddings that perfectly fit the desires and vision of her wedding couples. In my experience, some people will go the extra mile with a smile on their face, but Ann and her staff go the extra marathon. Maybe that sounds a little cheesy, but its true. Really. While planning from DC, Alina explicitly and implicitly trusted Ann to bring the wedding to life, and was able to enjoy her day to the fullest because Ann took care of it like she was coordinating a sister’s wedding. I strongly believe that weddings are a collaboration, and I love having Ann on my team. She makes my life easy, allows me to do my best work, and does the same for every other vendor too. All this while her main focus is bringing joy to the couple. I also overheard guest after guest speak about how impressed they were by the whole event. Thanks for rocking it again Ann!
