DESTINATION I DO magazine feature ~ Atwood Ranch Wedding

I was so excited when Destination I Do magazine contacted me for some  "quintessential wine country"   images for a feature they were planning to do on "Wine Country Couture."   They had a particular vision in mind, and I knew that the detail images from a  recent Wine Country Wedding at Atwood Ranch in Sonoma would be perfect!!

Thanks to "Destination I Do"  for featuring my work in this amazing issue, also featuring some inspiring  photographers I admire.  You can find the magazine at your local Barnes and Noble, so be sure and check it out for lots of fabulous destination wedding ideas.  Gorgeous cover image by Chris Schmitt.



Napa Valley Elopement | Charlotte and Coley

It was a pleasure to photograph Charlotte and Coley who eloped in the Napa Valley.  I love the intimacy and simplicity of these types of weddings.  They flew in from Southern California that morning, picked up their little cake from Sweetie Pies in Napa,  quickly got dressed, and met me downtown.  Absolutely fabulous!!

Napa Valley Elopement | Cyndie and George

I had such a great time with Cyndie and George.  If you haven't seen my original post featuring their wedding, take a peek here. I Couldn't help but post a few more from their Wine Country Elopement!



Winery Wedding| Sonoma | Cyndie and George

Cyndie called me on a Wednesday. She planned to elope on Saturday.  Nothing was planned, but she was going to make it happen.   We hit it off immediately, and quickly devised a plan!  Within 24 hours, she had her dress,  and a  pair of sassy red shoes!  They married in a field........... just the two of them, and I cried silently just like I always do at weddings.  Their open and spontaneous personalities reflected in the images we created!

Thanks to Sweetie Pies Bakery in Napa for the darling cake topper, and to Polly at Valley Flora for creating a stunning bouquet at the last minute!!

Congratulations to you both, and thanks for bringing me along! It was awesome.
