Shooting a wedding at Beacon Hill Winery is always such a pleasure. Not only are the staff amazing, there’s something about it that feels a little bit like coming home, too. I love everything about this venue! And what a perfect pairing it was with the darling Katie and Blake, who were a dream to photograph on their special day, and just lovely to plan with throughout this past year.
There is so much that can be said about these two, and about the love they share. They’re one of the happiest, most genuine, and thoughtful couples I’ve had the pleasure to work with, and there are so many things that stood out to me about their wedding. For one thing, Katie was the talent behind every bit of hand lettered goodness sprinkled throughout the wedding details, and she did a phenomenal job honoring her family, with a gorgeous heirloom ring as her “something blue,” a special first look with her dad, and beautiful embroidered hankies for both him and herself. Her wedding ring even incorporates diamonds from both her side of the family and Blake’s, and I love that she’s wearing their history on her finger.
As Katie’s maid of honor mentioned, you can’t help but love Katie when you meet her. And, as Blake’s best man mentioned, Katie is Blake’s passion. It’s obvious that he pours his everything into their relationship and making Katie happy, which is just a dream to see. My favorite part of the day was when he snuck Katie away after their ceremony, for some private time together, just the two of them. He had arranged for flowers, champagne, appetizers, candles – the works – to be set up at a little table away from all of the hustle and bustle of the wedding day, and I think it was the best surprise ever.
Cheers to this happy couple, and here’s to many more years of passion and surprises!
Thanks to all of the amazing vendors who made this wedding so lovely!
