Melissa and Andrew got married over at Ponte Winery. Their day was romantic and fun and whimsical and exquisite…it was all things that every wedding should be.
Our favorite part of their day happened during the first look. Melissa was standing at the top of the stairs with Andrew waiting down below. When we told Andrew to turn around to see his bride he literally ran to up the stairs to her out of excitement and kissed her. It was seriously one of the sweetest first looks that we have ever done and gives us yet another reason why first looks are so amazing. If Andrew had seen Melissa for the first time coming down the aisle…his reaction would have had to be different. In that moment he couldn’t have run to her…he couldn’t have embraced her…he couldn’t have kissed her but because of the first look…in that moment he could.
When the guests started to arrive we tucked Melissa away so that no one would see her and we could start the ceremony.
Then we finished up some portraits of the wedding party and the two of them.
We even had our friends over at Jake Duke Studios set up a styled scene in the vines.
Thank you all so much for having us share in your special day!! We were beyond excited to capture your love and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you guys!!
