Ana + Brett: Meritage Resort & Spa Wedding Photography in Napa, Part 2

       Part two of Ana + Brett's wedding day resumes at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, as they leave their ceremony in their vintage Volvo getaway car. (If you missed Part one, check out their photos here.) They took a little pit stop along the way to relax under the boughs of a giant oak tree (and make-out!). After the cocktail hour, they joined guests for the reception in the Meritage Resort's Estate Cave. A sumptious dinner, delightful toasts, a romantic first dance, and cake cutting commenced -- along with a lot of crazy fun dancing. Perhaps one of the most hilarious and wonderful moments of the evening was when Brett removed Ana's garter with his teeth, and her dad rushed the floor and interrupted the performance, covering his face in feigned distress. Everyone erupted with laughter and cheer.

       We are so happy for Ana + Brett. Each moment of their day was filled with absolute joy and beauty. Just seeing how they look at each other with such love, melts our hearts. Congratulations! We know that your journey together as a married couple will be nothing less than awesome! Enjoy these photos of their gorgeous wedding reception at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley.

Ana + Brett: Meritage Resort & Spa Wedding Photography in Napa, Pt. 1

       Ana + Brett are one of the most relaxed, joyful couples we've photographed, and we had the best time taking their engagement photos on a sailboat in the Bay earlier this summer. When we met up with them on their wedding day at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, they had just returned from a refreshing swim at the pool, and a nice lounge in the sunshine. It was a perfect day for a wedding. In fact, this was their second: an American encore performance after getting married a few weeks earlier in Brazil. These two were having the most fun ever on their International, Rock Star TOUR OF LOVE!

       After getting dressed, Brett took a little spin in their vintage wedding Volvo (aficionados: feel free to ID the year of the car in the comments section below). With a hesitant ignition, the groomsmen helped get the car rolling with a bit of a push, and even more hearty laughs.  Then Brett waited for his bride to arrive in the Meritage courtyard, for the "first look." Ana came walking down, twirling Brett around, and gave him a big kiss, the bridesmaids cheering behind them.

       The wedding ceremony site at the Meritage vineyard is tucked behind the crest of a hill and surrounded by grapes and giant oak trees. Ana's dad drove her up to the ceremony in the Volvo, and escorted her down the aisle. As Ana took Brett's hand under the Romanesque stone pergola, the sun shone behind them brilliantly.

       With an exchange of vows, rings, and a sand pouring ceremony, they were married!!!! Everyone stood to applaud as the couple kissed and raised their arms in celebration. Then they drove off to their reception, and as they turned to drive down the hill, the words, "Just Married," were declared above the bumper.

       Congratulations Ana + Brett!!!! Here are some selected photos from their perfect wedding day to celebrate a perfect couple! Tune in soon, when we post more photos of their cocktail hour, reception, and lively dancing.

Lisa + Eugene: Westin St. Francis Hotel Wedding Photography in San Francisco, Pt. 2

       It was time to clink glasses and celebrate Lisa + Eugene being married! Their wedding reception at the top of the Westin St. Francis in downtown San Francisco was truly stunning. Lisa picked out the most beautiful details, including sequin embellished table clothes, that sparkled in the evening sunlight. 

       Lisa + Eugene know how to throw a stellar party and the rest of the evening was filled with heartfelt and hilarious toasts, dancing, cake and of course, shots of vodka! We are soo happy for Lisa + Eugene and wish them a lifetime of love together! Congratulations love birds!
