Melissa & David’s Wedding

They chose the beautiful Churchill Manor in Napa Valley for their destination wine country wedding.

We arranged a meeting between the bride and groom so that they could see each other privately for the first time that day prior to the ceremony for a few moments together.

They each had three attendants — here are the guys with the groom . . .

Meet Sparky! What a special cocker spaniel this guy is; he traveled with Melissa and David all the way from Colorado to Napa and was present for some pre-ceremony shots. We were all up for that as we love dogs and it was a lot of fun taking some photos of them with him!

The wedding program doubled as a fan, which was much appreciated on this warm summer day.

Their first dance was to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t help falling in love with you”.
