Two beautiful souls who have known each other since they were kids. Always looking for that special person to fill their soul with love. Not realizing it was right in front of them.

This wedding was absolutely spectacular! There was so much love this day, and it was felt and welcomed!!! The day started early in the morning as everyone started to get ready at Hacienda De Leal Hotel in San Juan Bautista. This boutique hotel seriously was amazing and looked like a mini vineyard!

Guys typically have it much easier on wedding day!!!

Corey surprised Julie with a stunning necklace with her “new” initials as a gift on their wedding day!

Julie seriously did not need any makeup this day, she was positively glowing!

I then headed over to the gorgeous Leal Vineyards where the wedding was to be held, and just took a minute to really grasp just how beautiful this venue was! The photography gods were on my side as we had a bit of overcast, which helps make sure there are no shadows or squinting going on! Now the work began!

Julie knew that the one thing she needed when she got married this day was her grandmothers pearls! They were beautiful!

The moment Julie’s dad came and saw her for the first time, I could barely contain my tears! He was so proud of his little girl!

All that was left was to get married!!!

Mr and Mrs Smith!!! Mr and Mrs Smith!!!

Now, all that was left was to Dance, Drink and Be Married!!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Smith! Thank you for choosing me to capture this special day!!
