I know I start a lot of blog posts by talking about the weather, but I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that we could not have had a more perfect summer day to head to Bellamere Winery for a wedding! We were celebrating Sara and Soteca’s reception. Soft light from clouds for family portraits, golden hour sun peeking through the trees for bride and groom portraits, and then rain while we were all inside to cool things off, and then leaving us with clear skies for their night photo… What more could I really ask for?!
As part of their cultural traditions, they had their wedding ceremony on a different date, and I had the pleasure of joining them at Bellamere Winery as they gathered with their friends and family to enjoy the reception portion of their wedding celebrations :)
Sara looked absolutely stunning and she and Soteca were complete naturals in front of the camera. It was out of the ordinary but such a nice treat to jump right into portraits first thing, all of my ‘creative juices’ were flowing and I absolutely love every single portrait from the day!
Sara and Soteca’s guests were just as wonderful as they were, and after we were treated to hearing some of the most beautiful and heartfelt speeches I have ever heard, DJ Alpha started working his magic and there wasn’t a single person left sitting. The whole room was up dancing, and it was so great to see!
Thank you so much for having me as part of your day, Sara and Soteca, and all the best this year when you become new parents for the first time! <3
