Stefani + Derek {Wedding Story}

July 16th, 2011  was absolutely perfect. The setting at St. Josef’s Winery was green and gorgeous. Soothing melodies carried in the air from the on-site string instrumentalists.  Rain began to trickle down as the guests made their way to their seats, but no rain shower would stop what was about to take place. Two lives were destined to join together forever, and today was the day. The excitement. The anticipation. The known. The uncertain. The butterflies….All in love. Once the groomsmen and bridesmaids made their way to their places the rain came to a halt. Then, once the bride and groom were announced man & wife, the clouds magically parted and the sun came streaming through and bounced off their radiant faces. It truly was amazing.

There were over 400 guests in attendance, a beautiful venue, excellent food, wine, & music ~ now that’s what I call a good gig. My kind of wedding. A real celebration. Congratulations Stefani & Derek, thank you for choosing me to capture your gorgeous wedding story. Much love and happiness to you both. Enjoy your GINORMOUS preview…
