I know I start nearly every blog with this, but honestly, where do I start?
So, before I get distracted, I’m going to get this part out of the way – if you get engaged and plan to have a summer wedding you really need to consider Gilbert Cellars at the Hackett Ranch for your venue. The grounds are perfect, the barn with all the tea lights is perfect, even the bridal suite is perfect, but personally, my favorite part is the smell of the fresh summer lavender. It lightly perfumed the grounds and it smelled absolutely divine. The Hackett has become my favorite venue in the valley.
Next, and most important, I’m quite close with Quincey and her family. The Wells mean a lot to me for a myriad of reasons – they make me feel loved, they make me feel like family, and they were a part of the small handful that gave me a start in my photography business, so to shoot Q’s wedding was such a privilege. The whole day was emotional – I don’t know if Quincey had dry eyes for any portion of the day, and if it wasn’t Quincey getting everyone going, Tanner got the waterworks started. I think it was the most joy and tears that I have seen on a wedding day, and I loved every minute of it.
Q + Tan, you both mean the world to me, and I wish you both a lifetime of health and happiness! I hope you have a phenomenal time in Maui!
