Charlotte and Peter are a delightful, magnetic couple. Their megawatt smiles, sophisticated and subtle taste, and overflowing generosity blew me away. From the moment we met for our engagement session photos, I knew I was in love. From Charlotte’s fantastic, feathered hair piece to Peter’s periwinkle tie, these two threw a wedding celebration with maximum style and magnificent personality. Hosted at the jaw-dropping Thomas Fogarty Winery – a sumptuous, verdant estate with ravishing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains Apellation – a festive mood, fantastic attention-to-detail, and phenomenally good-hearted people comprised the day. Best of all, Charlotte and Peter hosted a charming traditional tea party.
Sigh, what loveliness – I’m forever in awe of Wedding Coordinator Jean Marks’ ability to somehow outdo herself every time! She is a delightful woman with a deft touch and distinctly unique sense of design. Jean creates celebrations that exceed expectations and dazzle attendees. Warm thanks to Jean, and everybody else, who contributed to this couple’s unforgettable wedding.

The WeddingChannel.com just featured a jaunty article entitled “27 (New!) Creative Flower Ideas.” One of Catherine Hall Studios’ images–a fruit-accented bouquet–made it onto their roster of inventive floral-favorites. And, while most of us prefer not to register to access content on a website, it seems that’s the case with WeddingChannel.com. So, if you’re interested in learning more smashing bouquet ideas, please visit “27 (New!) Creative Flower Ideas.”
In an article about seasonal planning for wine country weddings, The Knot magazine featured one of my favorite images of a couple embracing. Its playful caption reads: “Fall is equally lovely in wine country; grab your photographer and sneak away for a private photo op among the grapevines.” Magnifique!
As a side note, this issue of The Knot also lists me as one of the Best Wedding Photographers of 2010. Happiness.
