I couldn’t wait any longer to share the images from this beautiful wedding that I photographed last week. Hilary and John are the match made in heaven. I loved every momemnt of being there, documenting their special day.
This was the most anticipated wedding of the year for me. Partly, becuase I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make to Napa to photograph their day being 38-week pregnant. But hey, I made it there and did it very well. Hilary was a stunning bride and John was incredibly kind and good looking groom that I could ever expect to meet. This was the first time I was meeting them, as I only spoke to them on phone before John and Hilary had their destination wedding in Napa.
Travelling from their southern california home to the wine country up north, Hilary and John couldn’t have picked a better venue for their wedding. The wedding took place right where John asked Hilary to marry him during one of their recent visits, at the grounds of Charles Krug Winery. It was the perfect destination wedding for them. Black and white theme through out the wedding and reception kept the colors neutral and elegant. And the bridal party was super fun. I had the opportunity to catch up with Hilary and John while photographing their moments. John is a renowned Chef who is participating the Culinary olympics this year in Germany. Could this be any more exciting!
Hilary and John – Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I was honored and thrilled to have witnessed your joy. I am so happy for your both and I wish you the very best for the life ahead…bring it home Chef!
Many thanks to Mariea Rummel for second shooting with me that day and Michele Strosnider for assisting me for the day.
