When Law Meets Order. It’s either a spin off of our favorite show SVU or a new movie we have to go see. How about the theme of a wedding! Jenny packed up her belongings and moved to New York to practice law. Who would have though she would fall head over heels for Joe, a handsome police officer of the NYPD, hence “When Law Meets Order.” How cute is that!
We arrived to the gorgeous Folktale Winery in Carmel Valley. The vineyard were in full bloom and we could nearly taste the Chardonnay! Nestled deep in the valley of Arroyo Seco, just over the Santa Lucia Mountains, the getting ready estate has you feeling as if you were in the Bordeaux region of France. This Folktale Winery wedding was absolutely breathtaking!
After morning robe portraits with the ladies on the back terrace, Jenny dressed in the most amazing room! Cathedral ceilings, tons of natural window light, and a huge fireplace completely draped in florals by Seascape Flowers. It was heavenly! Next thing we knew, we headed to the Carmel Mission, where Joe was waiting at the end of the isle. As the doors swung open, Joe laid his eyes on Jenny for the very first time as a bride. Arm in arm with her dad, she made her way down the isle to her awaiting groom.
With the Carmel Mission so close to the ocean, we stopped at the beach for a few portraits before heading back to Folktale. At the waters edge it was a cool overcast day, but only a few miles down the road into the valley, it was certainly heating up! Once back at the vineyard, we couldn’t help but use the front of the chateau for more portraits! Jenny and Joe walked the cobblestone walkways, danced below the weeping willow trees, both always smiling from ear to ear. We retreated the barrel room to carry on the celebration, which of course was beautifully decorated and flowing smoothly thanks to the amazing team at A Sparkling Event!
Congratulations Jenny & Joe!
