Jennifer & Michael – Rancho Wikiup, Wine Country Wedding
This was my most anticipated wedding of the season. When Jennifer and Michael and I met up, we just clicked. Something told me that their wedding was just going to be one of those events that I would be so honored to be a part of. It was a chilly November evening, with scattered rain. But the clouds didn’t dampen everyone’s excitement.
Jennifer basically had this expression all day – She just kept saying “i can’t believe it’s happening!”The ceremony was moved indoors since the rain was coming down. But everyone agreed that the “alternate” location was meant to be – surrounded (literally) by friends and family the couple was entered into marriage. I’m not gonna lie – this wedding had me shedding a few tears. Jennifer and Michael whispered their vows to each other. So sweet. Their little baby Harmony was their ring-bearer. Can you tell they were happy?
I love this location – This is the 2nd wedding I’ve shot here and I just adore it!Seriously, they were so much fun, too. pretty willing to do anything we asked!Rancho Wikiup are lovely old stables converted into guest houses and an even space. The rich old wood and protected courtyard make for a very lovely setting.This was one of the details that moved me – one of the little “themes” for their wedding was YUM and it stood for You, Us, Me – Their formula for a relationship. Always remembering the individuals and the couple that make up a marriage. We went outside once the rain stopped for a dance through some sparklers.Inside, for some yummy Sift cupcakes…and how cute is the little woodland scene for the cupcakes?And then some dancing with glowsticks and feather boas. Why not, right?Such a wonderful evening. Thank you again for having me be a part of your special day.
