Shane had met the woman of his dreams. The person he wanted to laugh with, and love, for eternity, and he was ready to propose. That’s when we met. Shane was planning a weekend get-a-way, and wanted to propose along the oceanfront cliffs of Big Sur. If these two look familiar, it may have been from when we captured their gorgeous proposal. A few months later, as wedding plans began to take shape, we received the loveliest email from Shane and Silvina, saying we were there capturing their day one, and would do the honor of capturing their I Do’s. We nearly cried! If you know me, I probably did cry! We couldn’t have been more excited for these two!
Nearly a year went by before we met up again in San Francisco to capture their engagement session. We had plans to shoot inside the San Francisco City Hall, but when we arrived it was closed for an event. Oh geeezzzzz! We may have had a momentary heart attack, but took a deep breath and looked around us. We were in the midst of a beautiful city, out of our element, out of our norm. There were skyscrapers, an opera house, tree lined paths, cable cars, bridges, and the sunlight was glowing. Who would have ever known that their engagement session would have been one of our favorites to date!
Now it is Fall, and we found ourselves together again for their stunning Carmel Valley Ranch wedding. Tucked beneath the golden oak trees, strolling along the yellowing vineyards, and frolicking in the lavender fields. There was no bridal party, just the two of them with their family and closest friends. As the sun melted below the hills, everyone gathered family style around a kings table in the middle of the vineyard, sharing wine, wishes, and merriment.
Shane and Silvina, we couldn’t be more happy and excited for you two! We’ve loved catpruing your life journies over the past nearly two years, and cannot wait for the many many more!
Many thanks to this amazing creative team who brought this wedding together…
