Viktoriya & Anton’s Wedding

On a Sunday afternoon we photographed the wedding of Viktoriya and Anton up valley at Harvest Inn in St. Helena. The wedding was catered by Elaine Bell Catering and the day-of wedding coordinator was Tatyana Veren of Belle Affairs Wedding & Event Consulting.


A couple of shots of the bride pre-ceremony. I love this tight shot that features her eyes.

Then some portraits of her outside.

The groom getting ready.


The flowers looked really pretty floating inside these clear vases filled with water.

A quiet moment before the bride and her father walk down the isle.

The groom focusing on his bride approaching.

During the ceremony, they stood in front of a wrought iron trellis, draped in white material with a flower arrangement on top. The isle was sprinkled with rose petals by the flower girls during the processional.

The newly married couple surrounded by their family and friends.

The flower girls having fun running on the lawn after the ceremony; they are both still holding the white baskets that contained the rose petals they sprinkled when walking down the isle.

Maid of Honor and guests at the cocktail hour.

A variety of Bride and Groom photos.

I love the warm late afternoon lighting in these.


Sitting on some rustic wooden furniture in the garden.

The look of pure joy!

Harvest Inn has so many varied and beautiful settings that are ever changing with the seasons. Every time we are there it is a new adventure.


The parents waiting for the Bride and Groom to arrive where they offer a traditional Russian bread that the couple feed each other, along with spring water that has been blessed in a Russian Orthodox church.

Their first dance ends with the Bride sitting on the Groom’s bent knee and a spontaneous kiss.

Sun flare adds drama to this closing shot.

Wishing you many happy years ahead! Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers.

These photos are wonderful and would fit in any wedding magazine. Too bad the groom is so ugly… Just kidding!!! They are great, wonderful job! Congratulations! – Chris – the "BEST" Man

Being an extremely picky person by nature, I must say that the photographs on your blog are simply amazing. I can’t wait to see the whole DVD. Based on what I’ve seen so far, you have surpassed our expectations and have been BY FAR the best wedding vendor in our event. I am not just saying it – I mean it. Starting from how well you worked on the site, how invisible and yet effective you were at capturing all of the right moments, down to the incredible photographs that you produced. Thank you for capturing these memories for us in a way that truly brings them back to life.
