Multi Cultural Wedding at Solage | Calistoga, California

This was a weekend I will never forget! It started with me attending a photography conference in Colorado, and ended with me flying home to shoot this colorful multi cultural wedding at Solage in Calistoga! (and then I flew back to Colorado for the rest of the conference…my husband got to know the drive to SFO way too well! Love you babe!)

Clara and Alex were such a sweet, lovely couple! Truly, one of the most laid back couples I have ever worked with. From the moment I arrived, both were so kind and funny. Clara has the best laugh, and her accent! I joked with her that I could have listened to her read the phone book! (didn’t Oprah say that once about Sean Connery?) She looked so elegant, the dress she wore was so perfect for her.

The best thing about this wedding, besides the beautiful colors and many friends and family who had travelled so far to attend (the bride is from India and the groom from Romania) was the love these two have for each other. They were constantly holding hands, stealing gazes, and smiling. And the highlight of the night for me? When the best man, who had traveled from Romania (and HATES flying) sang the song for the first dance and blew us all away! Sinatra would have been proud; this guy had some pipes! He sang several of my favorites, including “The Way You Look Tonight”.  The end of the night was capped with more dancing, and enjoying the fire just outside…such a cozy way to reconnect with family and friends while eating late night snacks!

This wedding wouldn’t have happened without this amazing group of vendors, thank you all for making my job easier!
