It was a warm beautiful day in the Los Olivos/Santa Ynez Valley for Scott and Shannon’s fun filled wedding at the Crossroads Estate at Firestone Winery! Looking back on the wedding day it’s hard for me to believe that I spent over 12 hours photographing their wedding day. It all went by so fast, it’s almost a blur. Thankfully though the wedding photos are not blur, rather there are thousands of them, sharp, in focus and colorful! Each wedding photograph takes me back to recall so many wonderful memories as I observed and captured with this gift of photography that we’ve all been given. What a privilege it was to be chosen for this assignment. Both Scott and Shannon are in the movie business and so I took it as one of the highest complements possible to be chosen as their wedding photographer! I was assisted for a good portion of the day by one of my awesome second shooters: Jason Rath!
The Crossroads Estate at the Firestone Winery is really a fabulous wedding venue in the Los Olivos and Santa Ynez area. The property is characterized by wide open lawns and fields, picturesque trees, a huge pole barn and the main estate house just for starters.
I love coming early to get detail shots of the dress, shoes, rings, invitations and anything else of importance!
Wedding coordination and event planning for this fabulous wedding was done by Lauren Kendle Event Productions! Kendle and her team did a fabulous and well coordinated job!
All the spectacular decor and flowers were done by NLC Productions. They did a great job with the beautiful bouquets and decor through out the wedding venue. Their work is highly acclaimed and speaks for itself!
Coastline DJ’s kept the night rocking with the tunes.
Delicious catering was provided by Pure Joy Catering
The Solvang Bakery provided the elegant and delicious cake!
As you can see the Crossroads Estate at Firestone Winery in Los Olivos. This wedding venue is run by Foley Family Wines and is top notch in every respect. What a gem of a wedding venue to photograph in the gorgeous Los Olivos – Santa Ynez area. It’s amazing how many beautiful wineries, barns, ranches and estates there are that lay ready to be discovered by couples planning their most special day!
Kids are always one of my favorites parts of each wedding. Their expressions and actions are unbeatable! Kids are full of energy, innocence and beauty. But even the most vivacious kid can get a little tire and bored at a wedding!
Scott and Shannon thanks so much for all the great memories and giving me the liberty to photograph your wedding in the way I thought best. I appreciate your trust, not to mention Shannon toughing it out to walk in those hills and both of you marching up that hill on an extremely warm day! I’ll remember your special day for a long time to come. May your love continue to grow and blossom to become just as beautiful as your wedding day was!
