The prettiest Olympia Valley Estate Wedding in Petaluma California!! :)))
Jess + Chris had the most beautiful wedding at the prettiest venue in Petaluma California (Olympia Valley Estate). :)))
The morning started off slow with makeup, details, champagne toasts, & sweet letters from each other to read as they both got ready for their special day.
Then, Jess shared the sweetest moment with her momma.. giving her a handkerchief to wipe her happy tears. :))) It reads “Mom, I am grateful that you raised me to be the person that I am. Thank you for always supporting me & for being by my side today. Love, Jessica 9-12-2019.” UGH so sweet! :))))
After her mom buttoned up her dress & she shared a first look with her ladies.. then, it was finally time for Jess’s first look with her groom! :))) He was waiting for her at the top of the stairs of the gorgeous white Ranch Home & immediately started the sweet hugs & kisses. :)))
Then we got the fun bridal party + immediate family photos out of the way (which is a HUGE perk of doing a first look)! And it was time for the…
They exchanged vows by the pond with their closest friends, family, & the neighboring horses & cows as their witness! Then, off to…
COCKTAIL HOUR :)))
I loved how it was important to Jess + Chris to make sure there was enough time in their wedding day timeline to actually ENJOY their cocktail hour with their people. Rather than rush off to sunset photos, they accounted for extra down time between the ceremony + sunset + reception so they could really enjoy their party :)))
Then, it was off to sunset!! With LIT-ER-ALLY the prettiest California SUNSET with the dreamiest golden light that I’ve EVER seen!! Like seriously, the way the sun sets over those Petaluma hills is a whole otherrrrr type of magic :))))
Finally, they toasted to the best speeches, shared their first dances, cut the cake, & danced the night away with their friends!
Cheers to the best wedding day evaaaaa!! :)))) xoxox
