From the bride Nicole: Sheldon proposed at Justin Winery in Paso Robles in the middle of their vineyard at sunset. As a wedding photographer myself, I have been to many weddings and already had a mental notebook full of ideas! I knew the colors and style I wanted but did not know what venue. We stumbled across the Bel Air Bay Club and instantly fell in love. We set up an appointment and the second we drove up to the property, we knew it was the place for our black tie wedding.
After seeing brides wear Hayley Paige dresses I knew I wanted to try hers on. I found the Gale dress online but it was not released yet to any wedding boutique. With designer dresses, you have to order them so far in advance and I patiently waited on the Gale dress to come in stores. I had JLM call me the second it arrived and I tried it on and loved it just as much as I hoped! It was not a “traditional” wedding dress but I am not a traditional girl and it was perfect!
The color teal works so well with pinks and corals and I went to my florist and friend, Becky of Haute blooms, and told her my vision. Becky was absolutely incredible and took my vision and colors and created the dream arch for us to get married under and the most beautiful bouquets that made me cry when I saw them. Flowers make any wedding pop and it was the perfect way to tie all my colorful elements together.
For Sheldon and I, the ceremony was the most important part. We wanted to have everyone understand our love story and connect with us and our families. Sheldon and I wrote our own vows and there was not a dry eye in the ceremony!
Overall, the day was perfect and I could not have imagined it any other way! :) We had an amazing team of vendors and are so happy we chose Danielle to photograph our day. She captured the color and excitement perfectly!!
