A little less than a year ago (almost to the day!), Albert had contacted us about photographing his and Essy’s wedding. After meeting with them, we knew it was going to be a blast working with them, and we were right! Their Hanford Ranch Winery wedding couldn’t have been any more beautiful! We were honored to photograph one of the first weddings ever held at that venue, so it was great to be able to return and see just how much it had changed!
The whole week before their wedding, we had been watching the weather forecast like crazy! It kept fluctuating between rain all day long to just rain in the morning and possible cloudiness all day. It just couldn’t make up its mind! Thankfully the rain held off the and it couldn’t have been more beautiful! Even with a little wind, Essy looked flawless in her gown all day long! (Even when her veil wouldn’t cooperate!)
Now if you know us, you know we’re suckers for a good love story and Essy & Albert’s is no exception! These high school sweethearts have been together for 10 years! When Albert told us of how he proposed, it took our breath away! He had proposed to her in Santorini, Greece on the edge of the caldera overlooking a beautiful view of the Aegean Sea. I don’t think you can get any more romantic than that and we’re swooning all over again just thinking about it!!
Weddings like theirs are always our favorites. You could tell that everyone there was so happy for them and that even 10 years later their love is as strong as ever. As you scroll through their wedding day, we hope you enjoy the images as much as we do! Congratulations Essy & Albert!
