Sometimes I meet people that are so beautiful inside and out, I often wonder if they're angels in disguise. At this wedding, I seemed to be floating in the clouds; Jon and Bryana were dream clients.... not only did they look like a models, but their hearts were genuine, loving and true. The way they gazed at one another, spoke with their loved ones, and actively made an effort to reach out to each guest and vendor spoke volumes for how sweet they are as individuals and how perfect they are as a couple.
Their day was easy-going, intimate and personal... each moment seemed to be well thought-out, reflecting their style and love for one another. They married at their own residence, a top a beautiful hill in Healdsburg with nearly a 360 degree view of the wine country and rolling hills. They picked talented friends to officiate, coordinate and play amazing music which made the day more comfortable and fun; and although I hadn't met this couple beforehand, they made me and my friend Sara Serrata (who helped second shoot) feel like we had known them a lifetime.
Some of my favorite moments of the day were spent getting ready with the guys and gals, watching the bonds between Bry and her brother (who proudly serves our country in the Navy and went on leave just for her big day), the AMAZING and HILARIOUS speeches (seriously some of the best I've ever witnessed) from their family and friends, and of course.... the time I got to spend with Jon and Bry by themselves (once you see their portraits, you'll know why!)
I feel blessed to have met each and every person at this wedding, they all seemed to touch my heart in one way or another. I can't wait to go back to Healdsburg in October for another session with the newlyweds! Thanks to all who helped make this day so amazing....
