Andrea and Mardy’s Wine Country wedding was held at the rustic and charming, Murrieta’s Well, in Livermore, Ca. The ceremony was held at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, It was wonderful for the couple and family to have both a traditional mass and then celebrate all through the night at this wonderfully secluded winery. Mardy’s emotional response to his bride was a complete tear-jerker. He could not have been more enamored by his new wife. Andrea’s stunning lace gown was breathtaking and the couple are clealy soul mates.
From the couple: “We met at Kaiser South San francisco, in 2011. Andrea was on travel assignment as a nurse, and Mardy was already a staff nurse at the same hospital. Since the very start we both noticed each other. Mardy even asked out Andrea the first week they met! From there we have fallen in love, gone on some awesome adventures together, and share the best dog ever, Pumpkin! We chose Murrieta’s Well as our venue because its beautiful and rustic setting. Food is also important to us, and the food and pastries are AMAZING here! The wedding coordinators here are GREAT as well!” To see their super cute dog, check out their engagement session here.
This Marin family portrait session stars the vibrant and spirited Hamilton Family: Parents Stephanie and Kevin and daughters, Stella and Lucy. As you can see, these two girls are smart, energetic, adventurous and absolute soul mates. I loved photographing them interacting with eachother, their environment and and adoring parents. The Hamilton Family is so relaxed and playful, thus allowing for everyone’s personality to shine through. The beautiful landscape of the Marin Headlands is breathtaking and I’m glad they will have these memories in photographs of the day they spent their as a family. I’m thrilled we got to explore the tall grasses and even the beach. Mom, Stephanie, is expecting baby number 3, so it was a great opportunity to run and play before the new sibling arrives. Congratulations to the Hamilton Family!
