Several months ago Paul and I got an inquiry from the sweetest bride-to-be named Ashley. We emailed back in forth and quickly discovered we had a lot in common. Ashley and Zak love the outdoors, backpacking, and traveling around the world (as do we)! We also discovered that Ashley and I happened to have grown up in the same tiny town in Oregon! So, it seemed destined that we photograph their elegant July wedding in California’s Santa Ynez wine country.
Ashley and Zak were so calm and blissful throughout their entire wedding day. With joy and excitement in the warm valley air, they promised each other a lifetime of adventure. This intimate celebration with family was a perfect beginning to their journey as husband and wife. Their romantic wedding ceremony took place at a private estate and the reception was held at the gorgeous Roblar Winery and Vineyards.
Shortly after the wedding, Ashley and Zak also celebrated with their friends and family in Austin and are now in Thailand for their honeymoon (where we went after our own wedding to volunteer for six months!). After Thailand they are headed to Korea to teach English for a year! It was truly an honor to work with Ashley and Zak and their families, and we wish them all of the very best in their amazing adventures together.
We hope you all enjoy some of our favorite photographs from the day! The complete online gallery will be live tomorrow 8/21! Guests will be able to access the photos here (access code will be the groom’s last name). Enjoy!
