A soccer fling turned to marriage at a romantic summer Wente Vineyards wedding- that’s the sweet journey of Monica and Chris. They said their I do’s under the warm sun with gorgeous white florals and elegant accents of light blue. Their first portraits as husband and wife were captured in the vineyards at sunset for a truly magical moment.
Chris popped the question a few Fall’s ago on a vacation up to Tahoe. Both Chris and Monica are very athletic (hence meeting on a soccer league), and had planned an epic (but long!) 14 mile bike ride. Monica actually knew Chris was going to ask soon because the jeweler accidentally called her to notify Chris that the diamond certificate was ready to be picked up. She kept the call a secret from Chris because she knew he had something special planned and didn’t want to further spoil the moment. Chris bravely carried the diamond ring with him on the bike ride. Once they reached a beautiful spot in the ride for a break, he got down on one knee and asked Monica to be his wife. And of course, she said yes!
Monica and Chris- wow, what a gorgeous wedding! Thank you again for the honor of being the one to capture it. I had an incredible amount of fun with you two, your sweet family, and your amazing friends. I’m so glad we didn’t let the wind get the best of us and still captured such stunning moments! You two are such a lovely couple both inside and out and I’m very excited to see all the wonderful things the future holds for you two. Congrats again on tying the knot!
“Corinna is the BEST in the business! From the first consultation we had with Corinna, she made us feel so connected to her. Corinna was very kind and accommodating helping us to navigate planning a wedding during a pandemic. I always felt I was in good hands with her responsiveness and personal touches throughout the engagement.
And that’s not all! Fast forward to our actual wedding day and wow!! Where do I begin!? From holding my dress as I walk down the stairs, pulling out a tissue from her fanny pack the second I needed it, blending and blotting my makeup to get me back to being photo ready, adjusting every stray hair and even picking out whatever the wind flew into my lip gloss! Corinna was my right hand woman and I can’t imagine having any other photographer by my side.
Through this process we learned how important it is to have a “dream team” of vendors and Corinna was definitely that partner for us!! We will choose her again and again, and we hope to continue to work with Corinna in the coming years!”
