Andersson Valley Wedding

I am still swooning from the beauty of last weekends wedding at Wild Iris Retreat in Philo, CA.  Filippo and Erin’s wedding was bursting with love, laughter, and family.  The groom was dashing & funny, and the bride was sweet & joyful.  erin+filippo3It was so easy to get caught up in the fun.  By the end of the night my face hurt from smiling so long.  And don’t even get me started on Wild Iris Retreat.  OMG!

Lush and green, overflowing with flowers and so very fragrant.  300 acres of gardens and cottages set above some of the best vineyards in the country.

Let me start by saying I adore Rusty and Megan.  Megan was raised right here in Mendocino County.  She is quick with a smile and not afraid to speak her mind.  I loved the easy way that she and Rusty love each other.  They are so genuine and I am nothing short of smitten with their wedding pictures!  We got to know each other during their engagement portrait session by taking a walk on a friend of Megan’s family’s property.  Open field of grassy meadows, fruit orchard, redwood fencing, and abandoned barn; a photographers dream location.  Take a peek…

Their wedding day was bursting with close friends, laughter, and love.  All the most important ingredients to a happily ever after!  Here is the sneak peek.  I’ll follow up soon with a larger post with all of the lovely details.

Richard and Stephanie’s wedding day was amazing.  It was fun and emotionally charged, romantic and silly, rainy but with a stellar sunset.  As a photographer I really couldn’t have hoped for more.  It was a super day!


The rain stopped minutes before the bride walked the aisle and the sky broke open with spectacular drama.

Ben and Kim shared the quintessential vineyard wedding.  Held at the Vinter’s Inn in Santa Rosa, California with it’s nearly 100 acre vineyards, bell tower, stone terraces, little secret gardens and fountains it was like stepping into something romantically other worldly.  The day was warm and easy and the smiles were contagious.  Ben and Kim are an easy going Northern California couple that joined together their wee family with young and dapper son in tow.  The pictures really do speak for themselves…
