Fall Mini Sessions 2020

Fall Mini Sessions 2020

Locations: Christmas Tree Farm in Los Gatos  – It’s such a darling location with Christmas trees, of course.  I’ve had families bring a big blanket with hot chocolate and all types of Christmas signage to make creative holiday cards. AND Bernal Historic Ranch in south San Jose – it has a cute old house, a chicken coup, a white barn, and a trail into the trees.  There are so many options. AND Fortino Winery in Gilroy – This is a third-generation family winery that sits against the lush mountainous backdrop.  It is my favorite winery and wedding venue! After your mini session, you could purchase some wine and sit in their outside dining area (weather permitting).

Intimate Hollister Backyard Wedding in Front of the Family Tree | Monelle + Joshua. My favorite memory was the absolute love of their family and close friends melted my heart.  I have never known two families to so quickly become one family so fast.  Every ounce of their intimate backyard wedding was special and meaningful, made with love of friends and family. Also, Monelle actually made her own cake.  It was beautiful and tasted even better!

Redwood Ridge Estate Wedding in Los Gatos | Lauren and David

Redwood Ridge Estate Wedding in Los Gatos | Lauren and David

Happy Anniversary Lauren and David!  Today we take a look back at David and Lauren’s wedding! I tend to get brides and grooms that have been in love since high school.  Lauren and David are even more special as they have been going to the same school since they were in middle school. Their real crush started in their junior year of high.  One night at the top of a hill while watching all of the beautiful lights pass them, David asked if Lauren wanted to be his girl, and with a little happy yes, they’ve been together ever since.
