After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

Nestldown was their dream wedding location, but when their ideal wedding date was not available, they booked another venue. Then entered Covid. Their wedding date was pushed back 2 years, but luckily the wonderful concept of Minimonys was born! They decided this was the perfect solution to become husband and wife at a sooner date and still have a few close family and friends present. Nesltdown was the perfect place, and their ideal minimony date WAS available! Everything was falling into place beautifully AND they get to have two weddings with the big one happening next year! Nestldown is like stepping into a fairytale. Hidden amongst redwood groves in the Santa Cruz mountains, it boasts a massive koi pond and a gorgeous ceremony site tucked inside of a sea of redwood trees and lush greenery. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful to admire. It has long been a dream of mine to shoot there!

The day started off with Connie getting into her gorgeous wedding dress! A corset inspired lace bodice with tiny crystals scattered throughout the skirt. They had their first look under a weeping willow tree by the coi pond which was a beautiful moment as I could tell Connie knocked his socks off! My favorite moments however, happened during the ceremony. Just watching her come down the winding steps that meandered through trees and lush gardens was breathtaking. There were so many happy tears throughout the ceremony which made it feel even more intimate. I am so thankful I got to be a part of their wedding and am excited to see them again for the BIGmony!

I am so excited to share this JAW-DROPPING wedding with you all! ¬†From the moment I stepped into the Napa home where Jennifer got ready to the reception & ceremony decor, there was no part of this wedding that didn’t leave me in awe. ¬†Jennifer & Jason wanted a tuscany feel to there wedding so when they first came to see Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, they knew this location could not be beat. ¬†The architecture and vineyards that surround the grounds transplant each and every visitor straight to Italy. ¬†I just loved the florals that had fuchsia dahlias dripping from every bouquet &¬†table centerpiece! Getting to know this wonderful couple, as well as their families on the wedding day, has been such a treat! ¬†Jennifer and I cry at the same things¬†so we made sure not to make eye contact during the ceremony in hopes to avoid a cry fest ūüėČ ¬†It was so much fun photographing this bridal party too! ¬†The girls were always laughing and having a good time and the guys knew how to work the camera with their Captain Morgan pose! ¬†This wedding will definitely keep a special spot in my memories as one of the most breathtaking weddings I have ever had the honor of capturing and I thank Jennifer and Jason for being so wonderful! Enjoy!

Prepare to lift your jaw off the floor with the beautifully elegant reception decor!  A chandelier and curtains were brought in to complete the look!
