Greg, I can’t put into words how thankful I am for you being there and capturing every single moment. After more then a year of preparation and all the detail planning your art is all that we have left after our wedding day. The images are absolutely amazing, I love them all! We are facing a humongous problem of choosing what to print for the walls now :) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!



Both my mom and I got super emotional during the preparations, I’m so glad Greg was there to catch it all!!

I spent nearly a year in search of a florist who would understand my crazy ideas. When I met Edgar, it was love at the first sight, he was finishing my sentences and knew what I wanted better that I did myself. H e spent HOURS working on my bouquet and created the most beautiful and unusual one I’ve ever seen. I’ll tell you more about it later, for now I’ll just mention that not all the flowers in the bouquet were real :)


Our first look. I’m so happy we did it, it was a very special moment for both of us and it took some pressure off the ceremony.

We fell in love with this site right away, I could just see us getting married there!

You don’t even want to know the amount of hiking it took to get this picture! We came back to the house right at the ceremony start time and my mom was absolutely terrified when she saw that my dress and feet are red from all the vineyard dust :)
