DENISE + JAKE
I had been dying to shoot a wedding at Triple S Ranch in Napa Valley so when Denise reached out to me about their wedding, I was so stoked! If you haven't heard of The Triple S Ranch, it's a super fun wedding and event venue where you basically rent out the venue for a few days and you can have a fun, long wedding weekend. After not getting to see their family and friends for so long due to covid, Denise and Jake treated their wedding weekend like a fun adult summer camp/family reunion and they called it "Camp Manela" - so much fun!
I'm so glad I got to capture their wedding ceremony for them. They had a Jewish ceremony under the big beautiful tree at the back of the property. There were so many tears and laughs througout the ceremony and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day.
Denise actually used to be an event planner and she did an amazing job of putting together her wedding. I'm SO obsessed with all of the decor - from the plates to the vases to the flowers, it was just all around so stunning.
There were lots of great toasts given throughout dinner and once again many tears and laughs shared. After dinner, Denise and Jake surprised all of their guests with their favorite local band, Mustache Harbor. They all dance the night away and just had an absolute blast. It's days like these that make me remember how special and amazing it is to be a wedding photographer and get to capture all of these special moments for couples. I love it.
