Kunde in Summer

What can we say that could add to the majesty of Kunde Winery? In short, it is a dream. Cody and Brad were classic and in love, our favorite combination. On the top of a hill in a grove of oak trees surrounded by grapes, they danced the night away.

Chateau St. Jean Wedding

Calling the weather a warm afternoon would be the understatement of the year. At 112 degrees during the peak of any other day might have been unbearable, but there is always extra magic floating around when it comes to love and weddings. They cuddled and laughed during their portraits like a pro, and Liz’s hair somehow remained perfect throughout the whole day- see for yourself! Liz and Craig wanted a Great Gatsby feel to their wedding, and we think they pulled it off with flying colors! Sunset time in Kenwood can be somewhat difficult because of the hills towards the coast, but I was lucky enough to steal them away for a short sunset session right before the first dance.

Trentadue in the Summer.

Shooting in wineries is always a joy. Posing and strolling among the grapes and lush greenery stays being a winning combo for us. A color palette of sage, peach, blush, with pops of magenta and raspberry colored our day as we focused in on what we do best: turning beautiful moments into lasting memories.

Chrissy + Micheal

Team Jolin spent April 1st at Ravenswood Historical Site in Livermore where the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The day started with everyone getting ready for the ceremony, Chrissy in the bridal suite with her mother, and Michael getting his boutonniere in place out on the grounds. The ceremony was short and sweet with 2 readers and flower petals for guests to throw after the kiss.

 

The light at Ravenswood is epic and it’s all because of the trees. The reception was filled with Japanese maples that did wonders diffusing the light. We started taking portraits near the ruins at that back of the property and then stumbled upon a killer oak tree. Dinner was a casual, cocktail hour-esque buffet with no set itinerary. Around 6:00pm dancing and toasts started. The last event was Chrissy and Michael’s exit in the pedicab off to their next party!
