They were married in a late afternoon ceremony in St. Helena at Harvest Inn.
Their ceremony was held on the balcony of their suite overlooking the vineyards.
The vineyards in winter are wonderfully artistic looking and full of texture as shown here in this overhead shot.

I love this shot of the back of the bride’s dress as she was walking in the garden.
A very vibrant and fun wedding detail shot.
