They say home is where the heart is.

Going back as far as I can remember, Novato has been home, and with it comes great memories and even better people.  Nikki is one of those wonderful people I had gotten to know, dating back to the days of Hill Middle School, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her wedding, at a hidden gem in Novato (who knew there was a winery in Novato?) no less. 

When I had the opportunity to meet Jake, I quickly realized they couldn't be a better fit.  Together these two are a fun, lovable, and goofy couple with a passionate and genuine love for one another.

The venue was great, the details were splendid, the wedding was beautiful, the couple is amazing, and the party was off the hook.  Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself...

Trentadue Winery Wedding // Kristen + Alex // Sonoma Wedding Photographers

What a wonderful way to close out 2015.  I had the pleasure of photographing Kristen + Alex's beautiful wedding at the Trentadue Winery in Geyserville, CA.

Amidst the most rain we've seen in California in what seems like a decade (it was maybe 5 rainy days over the span of 2 weeks), I found myself checking the weather forecast daily 10 days up to the date of the wedding.  Of course, weather sites are completely unreliable that far out, so I was treated to an emotional rollercoaster of rain, no rain, lots of rain, clear skies, cloud cover, and tons of rain, sometimes in the same weather checking session.  Come the wedding day, we were treated to a little morning drizzle, which really makes nature's colors pop, and a refreshingly crisp (some would say cold, I prefer crisp) day.

Wedding days bring emotions (non-weather related) out of people that they may forget they even had.  Unparalleled levels of excitement, nervousness that shakes those with unwavering confidence, and an appearance of tears in the eyes of the strong, is just part of what makes wedding days so special.

I had an excellent time with Kristen, Alex, their wedding party, and all of their guests.  Kristen and Alex's relationship has taken them all over country and their love for one another can be felt in both a deeply romantic, and incredibly joyful manner.  

Here's to a great 2016!
