Wente Vineyards Wedding | Livermore, CA | Taylor + Jesse

At the beautiful Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA, surrounded by rolling hills and gorgeous landscaping, Taylor and Jesse tied the knot. I honestly couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day for this wonderful couple. My favorite part of any wedding is finding the perfect light throughout the day, which Wente had no shortage of. Being outside is the perfect recipe for my style of photography and I loved every minute of shooting this venue with Taylor and Jesse! They did such an amazing job at picking out a venue! Even after the sun dipped behind the mountain, we were able to sneak away to views of the vineyards and mountains - it was breathtaking! 

I couldn’t get enough of the chic, vineyard decorating choices! Taylor and her planner Laura from Perfectly Poised Events did such an amazing job at transforming this vineyard lawn into a tented dream. I love the neutral tones with all of the greens, it truly is the most gorgeous combination!

I love getting to know my couples and find out how they met - it is the little things that make the connection between couple and photographer. Taylor and Jesse met when Jesse moved to Knoxville, TN to start working for Pilot Flying J, where she was an intern in their direct sales department. Taylor and Jesse were jokingly advised to stay away from each other by their boss – but we all see how that turned out. After a few weeks, Jesse asked Taylor if she'd like to meet up to hang as friends and quickly realized they had something special. Jesse asked Taylor to marry him while they were back in Knoxville for Christmas 2016 and the rest is history!
