I immediately knew I would click with this awesome couple from Arizona as soon as we spoke on the phone a few months prior to their elopement.  The conversation was easy and fun as we got to know one another; I learned that they both love the outdoors and are adventurous and outdoorsy (my kinda people!) and when I asked how they met, their story made me swoon (it was fate: they kept bumping into each other on the trail- I mean, how perfect for the nature loving couple, right?!)  Jacqui and Noah asked the usual questions I'd expect them to be curious of...   then, threw a few surprise questions my way...  for instance, "What's your favorite line from Airplane?"  Uh, it's been years since I've seen that movie so they stumped me...  then gave me homework.  I had to watch Airplane and get back to them with my answer!  I watched it happily, and I'd have to say that was the best homework I've been assigned.  I knew when their big day rolled around, we were going to connect in an awesome way and have tons of fun together!

Noah and Jacqui couldn't have picked a better day for exchanging their vows...  it was a beautiful, warm Spring day in the wine country, with almost no clouds in the sky and buds blooming throughout the vineyard.  With Jacqui's parents, sister, best friend and Noah's best friend by their side, they kept the day intimate and easy going.  Their ceremony was sweet and simple, by contrast of the magnificent and dramatic backdrop of the Ledson Winery mansion and rolling hills: it was pure perfection.  We spent the next couple hours walking the beautiful property, creating beautiful moments and then enjoyed a wine tasting on the back balcony.  With such down-to-earth, friendly people as company, the vibe was light-hearted with plenty of good stories and expressive, hilarious moments.

Our time together came to a close when Jacqui and Noah joined their company and took off for dinner in style...  it was the perfect ending to a fairytale kind of day.  I'll never forget this genuine couple, and feel so honored to have been a part of their special day.  Thank you Jacqui, Noah and your fabulous family and friends for allowing me to be a part of it all.
