Holly and Mike’s Napa Valley B.R. Cohn Winery wedding was a California dream! From the crisp white getting ready bungalows, to the gorgeous olive grove where the couple shared their first look, to the jaw-dropping amphitheater ceremony spot overlooking the vineyards, and to the sweet open-air reception space showing off the loveliest sunset- this wedding is what dreams are made of! This gorgeous Midwest couple were joined by their family, friends, and sweet pup Shea as they celebrated the beginning of their Happily Ever After!
I had an instant connection with Holly and Mike because they both, like me, are from the Midwest! Holly grew up in Glenview IL and Mike is from Kenosha, WI. The pair met in college at University of Wisconsin – Madison. Their roommates were dating at the time, which led them to be introduced to each other They semi-recently relocated to San Francisco and are loving the west coast life! Mike and Holly are quite the travel bugs and had a trip to Italy last Fall that would end up being one of their most memorable vacations! Mike very bravely traveled internationally with a one-of-a-kind engagement ring to Holly, knowing that he was going to propose after being so madly in love for six years together. The couple were visiting Rome when Mike popped the question! Not only that, but he had arranged for a surprise photo session during their next stop in Venice to really capture the moment for them! Talk about clever and thoughtful!
Holly And Mike: I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to photograph your wedding day at B.R. Cohn winery! I had such a blast with you two, your sweet friends, and your very loving families. And Shea! Gosh she is such a cutie- I was thrilled when I heard she was coming! Holly, I wont forget how absolutely stunning you looked in your Alexandra Grecco dress. And the story about how you hunted it down is priceless! And Mike, the sparkle in your eye as Holly walked down that isle towards you- so precious. I’m so grateful for our little alone time in the vineyards and I adore the photos we created together there (and the entire day!). I hope you two are loving using the names “Husband” and “Wife” as you relax Oceanside in Tahiti right now! I’m forever blessed to have been apart of your journey together and can’t wait to see how your bright future unfolds together!

“I initially got excited about Corinna when I found out she was from the Midwest like my husband and I. I had a first call with her and she was so warm yet professional and I knew she would be a comforting person to be there on this big day. We did an engagement shoot in our neighborhood with our dog and Corinna had so many great ideas and was so patient with us as we usually get a little uncomfortable in front of the camera and maybe I was getting a little stressed. The engagement photos were STUNNING and we should have known then how epic our photos would end up being because of her. We got married in Sonoma and Corinna captured it just perfectly. We couldn’t be happier and I am actively seeking out anyone I can who is engaged to book her!”
