Vintage Charm at Garre Vineyards in Livermore

I am SO EXCITED to share this stunning wedding from last year! I had the pleasure of shooting this impeccably designed wedding (shoutout Joyfully Gathered!) for onelove photography. Full vendor credits are below!

The day started with getting some detail imagery at the venue. The girls were a flurry of excitement and the detail styling was GORGEOUS! Detail styling is one of my favorite things to do – but it does mean accounting for the necessary amount of time in the beginning of your day 🙂

While the girls were finishing up their last touches in the bridal suite at Garre, the guys were hanging out in the guest house! These two decided not to do a first look, so we kept them separate for some pre-ceremony photos at the venue. This was SUCH a fun group of guys – they were up for all of the fun photos!

The Bride? Stunning doesn’t even cover it! She was gorgeous from head to toe, with the perfect blend of vintage and modern details. Her low-backed dress created a beautiful silhouette and the long veil gave such an elegant look. Paired with her soft, classic bouquet – she was just gorgeous.

These two tied the knot in their home church of St. Michaels Cathedral in Livermore, CA.

The florals from The Flower House were the perfect blush pinks and whites that complemented the gold place settings so well! I loved the vintage touch of gold mixed with the modern glass.

The rental furniture was also such a gorgeous touch to the outdoor cocktail hour!

Dinner was incredibly delicious (remember y’all – your vendors work super hard and definitely earn that tasty meal and a little break!). The toasts almost ALWAYS bring a tear to my eye. I loveeee the sweet anecdotes and fun memories that family members bring up in their toasts.

After dinner, first dances and toasts – we were able to slip away for one of my favorite parts of the evening – SUNSET PHOTOS!

Sunset photos are SO MUCH FUN. Why? All the exciting, emotional, sometimes stressful parts of the wedding are over. You two have said ‘I Do’, said hi to some friends and family and eaten some dinner. You are looking forward to the rest of your evening partying with all your favorite people and you are relaxed and having fun!

These two had such an incredibly beautiful day that I was so happy to be a part of!
