Oh my goodness, Sara & Brent’s Sebastopol wedding was confirmation for me that you can’t beat Fall in wine country. The gorgeous fall colored trees on the front drive and throughout the vineyards were just breathtaking! More importantly, S + B’s wedding was full of family and love you could feel all day. Brent’s vows to Sara were some of the best I’ve ever heard – such a tender spirit in that guy! I loved that they carried on an old family tradition of exchanging roses at the ceremony in place of a unity ritual. Personal touches really made the day feel extra special.
The road to the altar was not paved in gold for these two. About 2 months after they booked me for their September wedding, they received a letter from their venue that they were being shut down by the city for noise & traffic complaints. We are talking 6 months before their wine country wedding (venues out here book up 12-18 months in advance typically) they had to find a new place to be married! Can you say panic!? I got the news & immediately sent them a bottle of bubbly because real talk: these major setbacks can happen when you’re planning a wedding, but you have to remember that you’re engaged, which is awesome, & that alone is worth celebrating!
But anyway, Sara & Brent handled the situation like total champs & found a new venue in just a couple of weeks. They ended up getting married in October (PTL I was available on the plan B date! phew!) and the day could not have been smoother. Be sure to check out their lovely engagement session HERE too! I just adore these two & wish them the happiest life & marriage!

Ohhhhh my goodness gracious, Jordan & Austin’s wedding was 😍😍😍! Yeah — I don’t even have words!
These two sweethearts had such a meaningful wedding day and I had all the feels all day long. The amount of work that Jordan (the stunning bride), her mom & many people around her was astounding from hand-dyed napkins, foraged pampas grass and custom signage. It was incredible, babes. Just wait to you see her dress! AH! I die.
Also, who knew there were gorgeous redwood parks in Oakland? Hello Piedmont Community Hall – I see you! I hope you all enjoy these precious images and don’t forget to check out Jordan & Austin’s engagement session as well!

I just adore Nadia & John and their beautiful Wente wedding! These fall into that classic love story … “he was my brother’s roommate” situation haha! When Nadia moved out to California from D.C., she wanted to connect with people she knew so she & John got together for a casual, friendly hike and you all know that the rest is history. The pair has been hiking and adventuring through life together ever since.
They made their union official at the gorgeous Wente Vineyards in the Tri-Valley area of the East Bay. Stunning floral designs by Jinger Leonard of The Flower House brought the day to a whole new level of beauty. My absolute favorite part of photographing this wedding though was interacting with Nadia & John and their amazing families. Everyone was so thrilled for this couple and the smiles couldn’t be wiped off their faces.
Full vendor credits are at the end of the post. Please browse these gorgeous images and leave a “love note” comment for Nadia & John below!
