Everything about Travis and Ana’s Lincourt Winery wedding was gorgeous. Ana’s personal touch was in every little thing and I couldn’t have been a happier camper photographing it all. It was a very laid back and relaxing day, surprisingly, for a wedding day. When my team and I arrived, it felt like a family get-to-gether was happening in their little rental house. The guys were out back playing field games, the mothers were putzing around the house getting food ready, and the girls were in the bedrooms getting their hair and makeup done whilst drinking wine. The sun was out and felt warm on the skin despite the crisp central coast morning air. It was a perfect day. Here are some highlights I’m excited to share with you….
How cute are these WeddingSong bridesmaid robes Ana gave her bridesmaids? I totally want one.
Something unique and brilliant Ana did was rent her wedding jewelry and veil from Rent the Runway. She was able to get amazing designer accessories worth hundreds of dollars for a fraction of the cost! Check out this gorgeous necklace!
This was one of my favorite shots from the day. When you hire your hairstylists and makeup artists, THIS is the reaction you want. The ladies from Team Hair and Makeup stopped to say goodbye before they left and when they opened the door, this was their reaction. Priceless and so sweet!Seriously, what a good looking couple they make…
On a more personal note, I am SO thankful for my team for this wedding. For the 48 hours leading up to this wedding I was hit with a hateful stomach bug that had me hugging a toilet and needing IV fluids at the ER. I was toast. Christopher and Nicole were my saving grace and they are the sole reason we rocked this wedding. So if you’re reading this and you’re wondering who and how I pick team photographers to shoot and assist me for weddings and whether it really matters. It SO matters. I only pick those whom I would trust to take over for me if I died…. (I thought I was going to the whole day). So to Christopher and Nicole, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. And to all the vendors who looked at me sideways all day wondering if I was okay, thanks for your grace and all your hard work. You made the event beautiful! And to Shauna and the ladies from Alegria by Design…. you ROCKED this event. I hope to work with you again soon, and often.
