I scored big time when I got hired to shoot Ben & Teresa’s wedding in Hopland, CA. Teresa is a designer and encouraged by Ben to pursue her career as her own boss. Her style and design elements were all over the wedding! It was phenomenal.
The Vera Wang dress that she sported was stunning. I’ve never seen a dress like it before. The skirt was so full and fluffy contrasted by the smooth, sleek bodice; it was a masterpiece.
For months Teresa and Ben grew succulents in their San Francisco apartment which adorned the rustic tabletops and were used in the handmade boutonnieres and bouquets.
Personal elements sprang up everywhere. With five long tables the couple used five different numbers that represented moments in their life together. From the amount of days on their honeymoon to an infinity sign representing the amount of love at the party. (And there truly was that much love there… I overheard a bridesmaid tell Teresa that… and it was so true.)
B&T had hankies for their guests to catch their tears while sitting under a giant oak watching the two exchange their vows, there were blankets to snuggle under as the night came upon the party to ward off the chill in the air, and there were precious toys for the children to keep and play with at their table setting.
Every element was sheer delight to see and photograph. Oh! How could I not mention this?! Campovida is a sustainable farm filled with gorgeous foliage, fruits and veggies. The couple gave honey and vanilla made on the farm as their gifts and they made sure to hire local vendors to support their states economy and keep their wedding green (and wonderful).
Congratulations b&t! Your wedding was a pure delight to photograph and I loved the mustard yellow mismatched bridesmaid dresses align with the guys grey suits. (I had to mention those!)
