Larisa and Greg were married at the same venue where they got engaged! In fact, they got engaged on an uncharacteristically cold and snowy day in April at Stone Tower Winery. The snow was coming in sideways because of the crazy wind we were having. I know because I was there that day. I wasn’t there meeting Larisa and Greg, I was photographing another wedding at Stone Tower. It wasn’t until my first meeting with Larisa that we discovered that we had crossed paths once before without even knowing it. The more we talked, the more I loved Larisa’s vision for her day and couldn’t wait to meet her sweet family. She and Greg have a son and daughter, Rhys and Fallon, and their feelings around family made me love them even more. They wanted their day to incorporate family, friends and a whole lot of love. It certainly did that and more. It encompassed a whole lot of style too! Everything was absolutely gorgeous!!!
We took a few moments for portraits before the ceremony!
The one thing that I LOVE about Stone Tower is the choices of places for portraits. So so so many choices!!!
The views here are simply amazing!!!
The ombre flowers going up the aisle!!! Swoon!!
Larisa and Greg decided on the hand tying ceremony. Que the tears! It was beautiful.
After the ceremony, Larisa and Greg headed up to the Summit Room for a few minutes alone. It was there that Greg gave Larisa this beautiful necklace. What is amazing about this gift is that it is separated into two pieces. On their first anniversary, the half circle will be attached to the diamond piece to make a ring. What an sweet (and clever) gift! So unique!
Did I mention style? I did? Well, I have to say it again, this wedding was beautifully styled! I love the color pops and the gold!!!
Larisa and Greg, your day was magical, full of love, family and friends! I wish you both only the best that life has to offer! Enjoy married life and those beautiful babies of yours!!!
