Kaoru & James Elopement

On Tuesday afternoon they exchanged vows and were married at Churchill Manor in Napa. Kaoru takes one last look in the mirror before going down the stair case to the ceremony site, which was outside in the garden by the fountain.


The happy couple.


Beautiful bridal bouquet with white roses


A portrait of Kaoru.


A head shot of James.


It was so nice that Kaoru’s friend flew in from Tokyo to be at her wedding; they have known each other since childhood.


Charlotte, the harpist, played soft music which gave additional ambience to the already beautiful sunny day.


The recessional — the bride and groom are all smiles after the ceremony performed by Pastor Bob Groves.



I love the feeling in this black and white portrait of the bride and groom, including the textures and patterns.


Congratulations and best wishes!

I’m Jim’s sister, Sherry, and my husband and I think your pictures are spectacular. I would like to order a picture and was wondering if I have to do it through Jim. Thank you in advance for your help.

Again, you are a wonderful photographer.
