The sun beat down on the dusty roads of wine country as the green grapes clung to the vine…it was a hot day at Arista winery-almost 100 degrees. Despite the heat, it was a beautiful day in wine country…and an even more beautiful day for Grace & Nick to be married. The white chairs were arranged so each guest could look over the vineyards as Grace & Nick were married. It was a unmatchable view for a wedding ceremony. Grace & Nick pledged their love for each other in a touching, sweet ceremony as guests held white paper umbrellas. They laughed, cried & were simply beaming knowing that their wedding day was finally here. Grace & Nick are two people who live life & find joy in every moment of every day.
Grace & Nick have the ability to make everyone around them happy. At their reception, they laughed, danced & held their families and friends close. The night was filled with heartfelt toasts, an amazing cake & dancing under a sky of paper lanterns. I loved the super saturated purple tones throughout the wedding…each table showcased an assortment of wildflowers-with chopped lemons placed at the base of the vases. I loved the Zara suits the groomsmen wore & the Badgley Mischka shoes that Grace wore. During the sunset, I snuck Grace & Nick out to the vineyards for a few more photos…and they are my favorites. The golden light was amazing! As the sun set & cast a warm glow on the reception, guests drank wine, ate incredible food & toasted to a wonderful, happy life for a wonderful, happy couple.
Grace & Nick-thank you soooooo much for giving me the opportunity to photograph your incredible wedding. Your day was nothing short of perfection & I LOVED being able to document each sweet moment-from the moment you said I do, the moments of your first dance, the moment when your fathers wanted photos together & all the moments in between. Wishing you all the joy & happiness that this beautiful world has to offer! XOXO, marielle.
Isn’t Grace a STUNNER?
And these are my favorites, as well!
They had a chip station at the reception! It was such a fun idea!
The cutest kids ever at the reception…
