This time I am really really late with all my blog posts and social media posts. Even though I needed some break up from social media and online presence I owe an apology cause especially Ashley and Stephan’s wedding was one of my very favorite events of 2019 professionally and personally. I had the chance to first meet them in 2018 during our Big Sur engagement photo shoot and I knew this was going to be one very lovely emotional wedding. Getting to know them it was very easy to see that they were meant for each other. Best friends, partners in crime and love birds, respect for each other and patience!
After lots of planning for more than a year their dream wedding took place at Mountain House Estate in Cloverdale , CA . The perfect venue for their fall rustic outdoor wedding. A venue that accommodates both - bride and groom from getting ready to the last dance. And again, it is always a pleasure to work with Lacey from Stacy's Farm and Events at Mountain House Estate.
When I arrived I went straight to the bridal suit where I was very warmly greeted by both Ashley and Stephan’s moms. The whole day was just perfect. We couldn't wish for better Californian weather in September for their wedding. Ashley and Stephan took their first look photos. She was an absolutely stunning bride. And even they saw each other before the ceremony that didn’t stop Stephan from being emotional and excited when he saw ashley walking down the aisle and reading his vows to her.
Thank you Ashley and Stephan for loving each other unconditionally. Thank you for your kindness , being so natural and your warmest smiles throughout the whole day. And last, but not least thank you for making me feel part of your very special day and for your super special camera necklace gift to me. Honestly, that’s the best thing I have ever gotten as a photographer.
