Still Waters Vineyard Wedding | David & Rachel

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


On a warm summer day, with thunderstorms and tropical heat from a storm the broke off of Baja California, This wedding day and evening reception was one of my favorites this year.  As always, I’m honored to work with Mark Padgett Event Design who coordinated another flawless event!  Kramer entertainment & lighting did the ligt & sound, while Flowers by Denise did the floral decor. The location for the day was at Still Waters Vineyard, in the heart of the Central Coast wine country.  Rachel & David, who chose to get married here are from Arizona and loved this venue for its serenity.  You can see why!  Rachel is relaxed and was so excited to be married.  David, also calm and collected, has a great sense of humor and was enjoyable to capture on film.  Their whole family was wonderful. Their style was reflected in all the things Mark put together for this event. I love it when couples style is so original and comes out in their event in every detail and every way.  I know your going to enjoy this one.

I love the tan jackets, with teal/yellow ties.  A very nice choice.

They designed a sweet Chuppah with elegant floral and wood decor. With the vineyard as a backdrop and lighting off in the distance during the ceremony, this was a sweet sunset ceremony.

As I was walking to the ceremony, i snagged this bottom right show of the unharvested grain fields, vineyards, and blue sky in the background.  I am sure Mark planned the yellow table cloths to match the sky at this hour.  With an intimate garden setting among ancient oak trees, the reception had a tranquil and alluring feel to it.

What a clincher to the evening, I had set up my tripod to capture this shot, it took over 300 shots to get this one.  What a night.
