“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
Robert A. Heinlein
Classic, European architecture nestled in the hills of wine country made the perfect setting for Lauren and Christine as they exchanged heartfelt promises under the rising moon. This was our first ceremony shot outdoors during twilight, and while it made things a little challenging for the photography, the whole scene was just beautiful. While the couple stood under the silky fabric of the chuppah and the stars slowly began waking up in the sky above, their friends recited blessings to them. This intimate wedding in Wente Vineyards was infused with touches from each of Lauren and Christine’s culture. Covered by the support and love of their closest friends, the two brides spent this day with joy evident on their faces.

Their First Look….
For their maids of honor, both Christine and Lauren chose their sisters!
For their ceremony, they chose certain elements from the Jewish tradition and personalized it with their touches.
Christine’s dad was an absolute riot! His speech must have gone on for at least 10 minutes or more, but everybody was laughing for pretty much every moment of it!
