As the sun set, its golden light danced on the sprawling vineyard of V.Sattui Winery. Warmed by the last remaining rays, Chad pulled Nichole close for that one last kiss as an engaged couple. She gave him the sweet, blushing smile she always did, and somehow her eyes almost seemed to say … “I can’t wait to be your wife and spend the rest of my life with you.” Everything was leading up to this day, the beginning of their lives together.
With the sun now disappeared behind the mountains, Nichole entered the tent with her father, and took her first steps down the aisle. The tent was softly lit with candles and lights strung overhead. Were those tears in Chad’s eyes, or just the flickering of candlelight? Their ceremony continued with a sweet exchange of vows and a quiet prayers from their parents. Nichole and Chad’s reception was filled by the love and celebration from their friends and family, with plenty of laughter to spare, and a few more tears of joy. At the end of the night, guests sent off the happy couple with a flood of bubbles.
We loved photographing their day and can’t wait to see where their love leads them next!
