We were in the middle of the hottest weeks here in Northern California, and the city of Lodi was not excluded from the constant summer sun. Wine&Roses is so visually stimulating that upon my arrival I actually had to do a double take and make certain that I was indeed still in California and not in the middle of France at some picturesque chateau! Every corner of this California wedding venue is made for romance, especially on wedding day. Andrew&Katie are so genuine and the very definition of kindhearted. Their honest to goodness smiles were endless and enduring on their wedding day which was my very favorite part of being there with them. Andrew&Katie exchanged their lifelong promises under tall trees that glistened with shimmer from the hot September sun surrounded by the people who they love the most. The day was hot, but what I will remember most is their willingness to be present in their moments together, I'll never forget Katie's deep breath and straight out of a movie pause as she froze time before her vows, or Andrews emotions as he looked as his bride saying "I do". It was a alluring day filled with exquisite memories that I loved sharing with these two sweet souls. Cheers to the new Mr.&Mrs. and a lifetime of savoring moments together, xo!
