On a warm summer afternoon, hidden in the rolling hills of Paso Robles California at Villa San-Juliette Vineyard & Winery, Pastor Tim gently told Josh it was time to turn around. Josh swung around just as his stunning bride turned the corner and gracefully walked down the aisle to become his wife. The anticipation through seven years of dating, the build-up through a year of engagement, the hours of their wedding day ticking by… All leading to this moment. These elements, partnered with the pure euphoria of seeing his darling high school sweetheart dressed in white, caused a flood of big tears to roll down his cheeks. It was a sight to see. She was a sight to see. When Kacie saw Josh’s precious reaction, immeasurable joy bubbled up and out through her smile and her eyes twinkled like never before.
Josh & Kacie’s wedding day was inexplicably beautiful – I won’t even attempt to describe all the ways it left my jaw on the floor. But I do want to explain my favorite part of the day. Not a singular moment, but the entirety of the day. Nearly every time I turned, I would notice a different relative or sweet friend showering Josh & Kacie with love. It blessed my heart to witness so much love poured over this bride and groom. Every person in attendance celebrated their love and celebrated it well.
A few months before the wedding, I asked Kacie to describe the style and overall vision she was dreaming of for their wedding day. She used these words, “neutral colors, classic, romantic, and vineyard.” It’s safe to say that her vision came to life! Every little detail was an intentional decision; the lovely VRBO [that perfectly matched the aesthetic of the venue] down to her niece’s flower girl shoes and everything in between. It was a true blessing and an honor to photograph a wedding day as exceptional as this one.
