Michael and I met in elementary school, back when I was the tallest girl in the class and Michael was the tallest person in the classroom. Michael is both the tallest and one of the funniest guys I know. He is a genuine friend that I am so lucky to have in my life. Then there is the incredibly gorgeous, uber intelligent, and sweet Bonnie. They are a perfect pair and I was beyond happy to document their wedding day in St. Helena, California at V.Sattui Vinyards. Let’s start with Bonnie, who really would be stunning in anything, but put her in a really beautiful, flowy wedding gown and some awesome red lipstick and she was a straight up knockout! Then add in a head over heals Michael looking sharp in his grey suit, a first look in a botanical garden under a blossoming arbor, and some of the most creative personal vows I have ever heard. Check out their creative details and everyone’s amazing dance moves and you will understand why this was one of my favorite weddings of the year.
I love these people and know they will have an incredible life together.
