August 24, 2017

who doesn’t adore a vineyard wedding done right?

sabrina + matt are that infectiously happy couple. there was so much joy felt throughout the entire day i spent with them. as i was shooting her in the bridal suite, she couldn’t stop smiling + laughing + i, in turn, couldn’t stop smiling myself. i just felt so much happiness being around them + their dearest friends + loved ones.

highlights were a first look under a archway covered in vines, a ceremony painted by the summer sunshine, portraits in the vineyards as the sun tucked into the mountains + donuts in leu of cake.

all the makings of a perfect day.
