Courtney and Kyle were married a couple of weeks ago at the wonderful Saltwater Farm Vineyard  – on a bit of a drizzly day that ended up being quite pretty after all! Take a look—

I stole Courtney’s dress and got some shots of it down by the entrance of the winery

Ian Witschy came along to help and this was a neat angle of the dress he captured

Courtney doing double duty as a hair stylist. Actually, they i’d most EVERYTHING for the wedding–she even made the bridesmaids dresses. As she told me during a consult, “Pretty much the only thing were NOT doing is cooking and baking the cake) They also made the brides hairpiece, bridesmaid jewelry , all the bouquets, ceremony programs, menus, gift favors, and wine bottle table marker labels!!!!

I really loved (and probably overshot) this cool sign/seating chart structure they built!

I LOVE doing a First Look but always feel a bit guilty as I put the Groom through such stress as he waits and is unable to turn around!

My connection to this family started many, many years ago as Lesley (second from left) was my boss at a part-time job I had! I have since done her and 2 of her sisters weddings!

Reverend Victoria Burdick could not have been any more accommodating. She actually encouraged me to ‘get right in there’ to capture the symbolic ‘stacking of the hands’ She was really cool – highly recommended if you need a celebrant
