Winery weddings are very romantic and can lend themselves to some beautiful photography (and an ample amount of wine!). The usual rolling hills and lush greenery of wine country provides the perfect backdrop for a dream wedding ceremony. You can take the reception inside and celebrate among the many barrels of wine where you can practice the adage to "eat, drink and be merry". Be sure to visit our planning article on wine country weddings!
Dianne and Chris had a romantic wedding at a winery in California Wine Country. They took advantage of the California sun with their outdoor ceremony and reception at Trentadue Winery. The couple took some romantic photos walking among the grapes as well as some fun shots with the bridesmaids and groomsmen! Check out our planning section to learn more about Wine Country Weddings!
One of our very own, Elizabeth, got married this past Fall in California Wine Country joined by friends and family (including her Bella Pictures family!). We thought we'd share some of the beautiful photos from her big day! Congratulations Elizabeth and Chris!
How they met: "Chris and I met for the first time at my sister's engagement party in 1998. Chris and my brother-in-law met in junior high school, and eventually ended up living together in college at Chico State where they became great friends with my sister. Nine years after our first meeting, we reconnected at a party that my sister and brother-in-law threw, and the rest was history."
The proposal: "With the help of some of my dear friends at Bella, Chris coordinated a scavenger hunt that sent me to a few stops in San Francisco, before boarding a ferry to Tiburon. He was waiting for me on the deck at our favorite restaurant, and first date spot, Sam's Anchor Caf' on bended knee!"
The Wedding: Elizabeth and Chris celebrated with 130 of their closest friends and family at the DeLorimer Winery in Geyserville, CA. "Both Chris and my parents live in Santa Rosa, so it seemed natural to get married in the North Bay and use Santa Rosa as a home base for our wedding weekend. Shortly after we were engaged, we started making weekend trips to the area to look for venues. One day while driving around the Alexander Valley visiting potential venues, we decided to take a break from our search to stop off at the next winery to have a glass of wine and talk about our possibilities. While standing at the bar in the DeLorimier Winery tasting room, we thought, this place feels good! The laid-back atmosphere (and the glass of wine!) were just what we needed, and our decision was made."
On Bella Pictures: " Since I had been working at Bella Pictures for several years, it was obvious that I would use them for my wedding photography. I was actually quite excited to move through our process as a bride instead of viewing it as an employee. I am proud to say I was the first person to check out on our eCommerce website! The whole process was so simple, which was very important considering all of the other tasks involved in planning a wedding! All of the pre-wedding planning from customizing my own package online, setting up a payment plan, rating my photos for the matching process and filling out my wedding planner were so intuitive. And the end result is by far the best part. Looking back, I can truly say that my photography and video were the most treasured items from my wedding. "
