This post has been a long-time coming! Carrie & Sean, Mayacamas Ranch in Calistoga, California. One of the most breathtaking weddings I’ve had the pleasure to photograph.
Carrie & Sean are the absolute kindest, most down to earth people you could want to meet. They did all of their planning long-distance from Chicago and Seattle, and in spite of how overwhelming that might have been, they ultimately made their friends and family the stars of the day at every step.
I loved not just the natural beauty of the setting they picked, but that Carrie & Sean cared so much about being eco-friendly and incorporating local, sustainable elements into their day as well. Their decorations are not just beautiful, but thoughtful and earth-friendly too. Why not use colorful, textural veggies as decor? Brilliant!
