April 8th, 2017 was the gorgeous wedding of Ashely and Brian. Luckily, the rain cleared and the skies opened up just enough for a beautiful ceremony over looking Sonoma County from the Vine Hill House in Sebastopol, CA. If you haven’t been to a wedding at the Vine Hill House, you are missing out! A quaint little house, with a beautiful porch, sitting amongst rolling hills of O’Connell Vineyards. If you look closely at the paver stones amongst the property, you will find hearts printed into the stones! Such a romantic setting.
Ashely opted for a first look with not only her husband to be, but her dad as well! The tears were flowing when Ashley approached her father. You could see how proud he was of her as he turned around and saw his daughter in her wedding dress! Then, we moved onto Ashely and Brian’s first look on the porch of the house. Such a sweet moment between the two of them! Lots of hugs and kisses.
After a sweet and quick ceremony, guests and Ashely and Brian got to head into cocktail hour! One of the best reasons to do a first look, is that you get to enjoy cocktail hour with your guests! Guests were playing corn hole, laughing, and giving their congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Azevedo.
After a delicious dinner, and some very heartfelt speeches we headed out into the vineyards and the barn to capture romantic portraits. This is my favorite part of the day. The bride and groom finally get a relaxed moment to just breath and enjoy one another. It always leads to gorgeous images.
From there it was party time! AMS Entertainment did an great job as always keeping the party going! It was a perfect day from start to finish! Congrats to the newlyweds, and as always, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to document one of the most important days of your lives!
And a special thank you to all the amazing vendors who did a fabulous job!
