I drive by Springfield Manor Winery & Distillery all the time, and I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding there! You can see how beautiful it is from the highway, so I got really excited when Ariel told me that was her venue! And let me tell you… it’s pretty from the highway, but it is absolutely gorgeous once you start walking around the grounds! They have unbelievable mountain views, a statement fountain in the middle of their garden, and an old manor that is beautiful inside and out! It’s probably my new favorite local venue!
I met Ariel and Matt last year at the dog park! At our old house, Eric and I lived in walking distance from the park, so we would go pretty often. One day I heard someone yell my name and she said she was one of my brides! It was pretty awesome that our doggies got to meet at the same time we did! :). Ariel and Matt are just as obsessed with their dog, Rufio, as Eric and I are with Sammy…. so we got along pretty well from the beginning! Rufio made a short appearance at their wedding too… which was sooo cute! I couldn’t get enough of him!!
Ariel and Matt were the absolute perfect couple to work with! They were easy going throughout the whole process and trusted me with doing whatever I had to do to capture their wedding day the way they wanted. Ariel and Matt, I am so grateful that you allowed me to be part of your wedding day, and I hope that you love these images as much as I do! I hope you had a blast on your honeymoon in ICELAND!!! AHH!!!!
