Pear Valley Winery Wedding – Jack & Courtney

Pear Valley Winery Wedding – Jack & Courtney

Pure elegance, smiles, a sense of calm – that’s what greeted family and friends who traveled to an incredible winery/vineyard in Central California to celebrate these two!  Both Courtney & Jack were so wonderful to work with and when your bride trusts you completely and surrounds herself and family with a dream team of vendors – magic happens!  Courtney’s vision of vintage timeless-ness with soft pinks and grays was perfect and definitely fit their personalities.   I couldn’t be happier to see my friend Courtney get married and bring together so many of my favorite vendors from Bakersfield out to the lush vineyards of Paso Robles.  Their venue, the gorgeous Pear Valley Winery had a hilltop ceremony location with one grand beautiful oak tree and views of vineyards for days!  It made for gorgeous photos…and thankfully the rains passed through just in time for the sun (and wind!) to come out.  I feel so honored to be Courtney & Jack’s photographer and am so happy for their perfect day…and to now share part 1 of some of my favorite images from the first half of the day!  Make sure to come back on Monday to see part 2!  Love and hugs to all the incredible vendors listed below….and congratulations Courtney & Jack!! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together and many beautiful adventures!!

We got engaged July 2012, but we didn’t set a date or start planning until January 2013 and we were married in November 2013. . 6) Did you hire a wedding planner/day of coordinator?  Was it worth the expense?  YES!!!! Best decision of my life. My family and bridal party didn’t have to worry about anything the day of besides enjoying the day.
