… from two weddings at Wente! I just love wine country weddings, and Wente Vineyards, besides making some really nice wine, is just the perfect setting for a gorgeous, romantic wedding among the vineyards. July I was lucky enough to work with Nikki and Phil, who really pulled out all the stops for their amazing purple and gold wedding, complete with our super fun photo parlour, where friends and family hammed it up into the night! Nikki looked like a beautiful Italian princess in her gown, which dipped off one shoulder, and Phil’s blue eyes sparkled with his love for her every moment!! Every where you turned you could see Nikki’s loving care for the wedding details, and white flowers draped with crystals shined day and night! Every ceremony has memorable moments, but when I started seeing groomsmen leave the ceremony area, I discovered that Nikki’s ring had dropped off the ringbearer’s trusty pillow, and her ever lovely and dependable sister and Matron of Honor had quickly scooped it up safely, but somehow nobody knew she had it, and they were off to quietly look for the ring. All was well, and the ceremony was perfect as the sleuths returned to the altar, and Nikki & Phil exchanged those rings and had their first kiss as husband and wife!! Here is a favorite image from their day!!
