Congratulations to Danielle and Nick who married last month at the Helwig Winery in Plymouth, California. It was an extremely windy day, but we had beautiful blue skies.  Throughout the day, everyone was relaxed and enjoying the day at pace.  Also, I have to say I do enjoy speeches that are not only well prepared, but full of creativity, sincerity, and humor.  Danielle’s Father prepared one of those speeches and gave a heart-warming speech that had almost everyone laughing and crying.  I have an exciting job of not only documenting the day, but watching people, how they respond and react, and even more so the bride and groom’s reactions, the mothers and father’s as well.  As toasts were shared, I watched Nick and Danielle as they received encouragement and support from friends and family.  I’m thankful to have been able to work with such a great couple as well as awesome vendors!

Last month, I drove down to San Diego to document Nicolas and Stephanie’s wedding at the Los Willows Wedding and Event Estate.  I had photographed Nic’s sister in 2010 and a friend of theirs in 2012, where I saw them again, and now this wedding.  I think I’m becoming a part of the family here. They have been incredible to me and I appreciate the kindness.  And while Nic and Stephanie wanted to enjoy their wedding day, they also gave me freedom to be creative and pull them out at certain times, which is always a plus when we get ideas.  The parked Rolls Royce was just asking to be photographed, and we waited until later before taking those images.   Thanks to Kevin Holding for coming along and assisting, and for the wonderful staff at Los Willows who kept the evening going.   Here are just a few images from their celebration.
