Napa Wedding Photographer – San Francisco Bride’s Magazine – Harvest Inn

We are pleased to announce that Harvest Inn has chosen one of our vineyard wedding photographs at Harvest Inn for their advertisement in the current issue of San Francisco Brides Magazine!  It can be found on page 91.  This is a great magazine with a lot of wedding gowns, flowers, venues, ideas, etc.  I love the pink Oscar de la Renta wedding gown and veil on page 7 in this issue.  It is nice to see a beautiful wedding gown in a non-traditional color.  You can pick up an issue at the newsstand or view the online version here:  San Francisco Brides Magazine.

Napa Engagement Photographer, Christine & Bill’s Engagement Photos

There are always great places to do your engagement session in Napa Valley…even in Winter.  Christine and Bill wanted to have some engagement photos that included their yellow labrador retriever.  We were all for that!  Here are a variety of photos from their session.  We are looking forward to their wedding later this year.

I really enjoyed that set. I think either the reflection image or heart backdrop was my favorite! Good to see you two out on the town last week.

Napa Wedding Photographer, Churchill Manor, Lauren & Brian

Churchill Manor is truly one of our favorite venues to photograph at!  We are well acquainted with the property, having done so many weddings, elopements and events there.  Be it summer, spring, winter or fall,  morning, afternoon or evening~we’ve been there for an event.  You can do a search on our blog to view our extensive work at Churchill Manor.  Today’s post is about Lauren and Brian’s winter wedding, on a sunny winter January day, which is a little unusual for this time of year in Napa Valley.  Both of the bride’s parents escorted her down the isle and gave her away.  They had a printed wedding tree that each guest could stamp with a leaf (see photos below) and then sign their name on it, which I thought was a nice variation on the traditional “guest signing book”.

What a pleasure it was to photograph this wedding!  The bride and groom’s vision of their wedding day was thoughtfully contemplated, with great attention to detail, resulting in a perfectly executed destination wedding at Churchill Manor.  The ring bearers carried a red cloth sign down the aisle with the words written “Here comes the Bride”.  The bride was escorted by her father down the steps of Churchill Manor onto a red carpet, covered with white rose petals to her waiting groom.  The fruit-draped wedding cake was from Sweetie Pies, Napa.  The bride surprised her groom, as well as all of the guests, with singing waiters and also arranged for Marawa from Britain’s Got Talent to be at the reception to show off her extreme hula hoop performance!

Wonderful set of images. I love that last one, cuddling on the porch of Churchill Manor. The second, third, and fourth to last are also powerful images. I’ve yet to photograph a wedding there, but look forward to the chance. Congrats on your new blog!
