Within what seems to have been a super slow start to spring with very cold and windy days, March 31st just happened to be the one day that stood out as being perfect with sunny skies and temperatures in the 70’s making it for the most gorgeous day at Stone Tower Winery for Charlotte & Ben’s wedding! And what a place for their wedding! Stone Tower Winery is just simply beautiful!! From their mountain views, to stone patio with s’mores and a firepit at night, to their lake where the ceremony was held, and their indoor reception with a gorgeous glass wall out to the view! It was the perfect backdrop to a gorgeously classy wedding day filled with touches blush, magenta and navy and so my photographer heart was quite literally SO HAPPY!! And then add in the fact that Charlotte & Ben were so romantic, easy-going and relaxed throughout the entire day!!! You could tell just how excited they were to be married especially during their ceremony! Their personal written vows were some of most emotional ones I’ve ever heard to this date and it didn’t leave anyone in the crowd with a dry eye!! These two are so loved by their friends and family and so clearly meant to be together, I don’t think my words could ever fully attest to it but I hope the pictures from their day come somewhat close!

And if you haven’t already heard me say this a million and one times, I’ll say it again because honestly I don’t think I could say it enough. I’m so grateful that Vanessa let me second shoot with her not just for this day but for my first wedding THREE YEARS ago!! She totally introduced me to the world of weddings and I can’t believe she took a chance on me then because I look back at those pictures from three years ago and man, have I come A LONG way!! Definitely go check out her blog post as well from Ben & Charlotte’s day, I promise you will be amazed!
