Kimberley + Thomas – Farmstead, St. Helena

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to photograph K+T’s wedding. The chapel in St. Helena was gorgeous and wooded inside, offering lots of sky light too! After the ceremony, we headed to Farmstead, where we were greeted with drinks, games, food and fun times.

Melissa + Kevin – Farmstead

Melissa grew up in Wine Country and knew from day one she wanted to have her wedding there. She and Kevin decided on Farmstead and I’m so glad they did. Farmstead knows how to throw a party—no detail was overlooked! Since they opted not to do a first look we  were able to get them to the cocktail hour.  It was all possible because of the fabulous team the bride put together. One thing I’ve noticed is that without a first look couples definitely get more pictures with their bridal party before the ceremony plus we get even more time for portraits after the ceremony.  Extra time with the bridal party is helpful, especially it is large—Melissa’s wedding had 9 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen. With large bridal parties, posing is definitely key! I want to see everyone’s smiling face and I want everyone laughing.. 


Chasa + Sebastien – Farmstead, St. Helena

Chasa and Sebastian had the most perfect wedding in St. Helena, California. The day started at Wydon Hotel and from there we walked to the St. Helena Catholic Church where their friend officiated the ceremony. After the ceremony, the wedding party and all the guests headed to Farmstead.  We were lucky enough to go to the amazing Long Meadow Ranch for portraits right after the ceremony. The tables at Farmstead were magnificent. Each setting had a watercolor menu and a tote bag with a watercolor painting of the day and Chasa and Sebastian had a live band playing from the moment they got there until the last guest left. The fun filled backyard-style wedding ended with everyone making s’mores!
