Sparkling Winery Wedding

I do sparkly wedding shoes with hot red soles!

Blindfolded first look—fun!

Silver bridesmaid dresses and bridesmaid bouquets of white flowers with navy accents. So polished!

Beautiful bride! And p.s., notice her delicate silver belt.


So much to check out in this photo: White rose bouquet with sage green leaves, something blue, pearl accents, and a photo locket. And by the way, check out the bride's French manicure with a twist.

Dogs at the wedding in formal wear! Is that a tutu on that pooch?

Wedding reception in Sebastiani's Barrel Room.

Group shot! Wedding party in shades of silver and gray in front of flower arch.

How pretty is sparkle-edged veil? Almost as luminous as this beaming couple.

Father and daughter dance beneath the vaulted ceiling.

Blowing kisses in the photo booth!

Joyful Wedding Under The Redwoods

Bridal bouquet with shades of purple...roses, dahlias, a cameo, and even artichokes make this unique.

So many great details here: Chocolate truffles. Sign. Dahlias in vase wrapped with burlap and crocheted lace.

Bridesmaids in dusty rose.

This couple's happiness is positively infectious.

Redwood photo op. Gorgeous.

Head table with Mr. and Mrs. signs. (Ooh, and look at the driftwood and succulents on the table.)

Chihuahua. Bow tie. Strike a pose.

How cute is this furry bride and groom cake topper?

Could this couple be any more adorable?

Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“I firmly believe they were largely responsible for making my reception one of the best nights of my life.”

“Desmond is so stealth at getting those special moments, we hardly knew he was there half the time. Roxy was so helpful with the logistics before, during and after the wedding, that we felt confident the look and feel we were hoping for would be captured.”

“I gave Desmond and Roxy a clear list of the things I wanted them to shoot. They shot ALL of them. They did such a great job of capturing our wedding day. I loved everything about the photos.”

“To say Desmond and Roxy had a calming presence is an understatement.”

“During the wedding day, they were literally 10 steps ahead of us the entire process so we never felt we were unnaturally posing or forcing a shot.”

“I remember seeing Desmond and Roxy a couple of times during the festivities, and being impressed with their ability to take a shot without affecting the moment.”

“We liked the fact that we had both traditional as well as candid photos. And we appreciate that the photos did not make us look over-stylized; they were very natural looking.”

“They were there to direct everyone when group photos needed to happen, and when the reception started, they blended into the background.”

“Out of all of my wedding planning, I knew I had nothing to worry about with the photos.”

“When it came time for our wedding photos, I knew it had to be entrusted to someone special and I could not have found a professional photography team better than Desmond and Roxy.”

(What does this mean?)
