Chapel Hill, Paso Robles Wedding | Matthew + Heather

Monday, August 29, 2011

A Chapel Hill wedding in Creston/Paso Robles, is one of the most unique places to be married.  This Chapel sits in the midst of a vineyard on the top of a ridge in the middle of rolling golden hills of California Wine country.   Chapel Hill is a Catholic church built last century with a beautiful “mission style” architecture.  Many of the elements and details were gifted from the Hearst Castle Collection.

Matt is a farmer from the California central valley and grows very delicious fruits, from which I tasted the peaches and they are excellent. My favorite fruit I might add.  Both loving the outdoors, you’d most likely find matt sporting a cowboy had and in one of his restored old cars. Check out their recent casual portrait shoot we did a few months ago.

They continued their wedding day with  reception was at Vina Robles, off highway 46. Vina Robles also has a beautiful “mission style” architecture as well, keeping in stride with their mission vineyard theme.

Today was another warm sunny California day that ended with a warm sweet sunset.
