What is better than a wine country wedding on a 20 acre estate in the private Sonoma Valley Hills? Emma and Trevor stepped into their wedding day with smiles and adoration for one another bringing their family and friends a day of stylish elegance on a gorgeous vineyard surrounded by sweeping views. Resting on over 22 acres and surrounded by rolling hills with spectacular views of Mt. St. Helena, Starr Lake Vineyards brings an outstanding elevated experience to weddings held there. It was an honor to photograph such a beautiful wedding where the details literally made my heart leap! From the colorful florals to the romantic light that surrounded the couple, this wedding sets a tone of classic beauty with all the right wow factor.

No two weddings are the same. When photographing a wedding I think my favorite part is honoring each element that makes each couples experience unique. It was clear that Emma & Trevor put a lot of thoughtfulness into their wedding day details. Mandy Scott of Mandy Scott Events made sure to work closely with the couple to creating an intentional wedding day masterpiece.

The florals were a dreamy medley designed with just the right amount of classical tones of white roses, Lisianthus and feathery peonies matched with subtle greens and some complimentary pops of coral Dahlias and hints of lavender Scabiosas. Sharla flock designs created swoon worthy centerpieces bringing warmth and joyfulness to the reception tables along with a waterfall of cascading arrangement at the sweetheart table that everyone adored.

The bride and groom were unified in dappled light on the upper lawn overlooking the stunning 4 acre lake surrounding the Estate. Tears filled guests eyes as the couple exchanged vows and rings alongside their adoring bridal party. Emma wore a Monique Lhuillier gown paired with Manolo Blahnik shoes that guests complimented throughout the evening and Trevor stood dapper alongside her in his custom tuxedo from Suit Supply and Magnanni shoes.

The four tiered wedding cake was on display as an art piece decorated with pressed flowers.

The reception took place in front of the rustic barn. Guests enjoyed dinner out alongside a sea of lush green grape vines with the golden sunsetting behind. After dinner, the doors of the barn were opened and guests were invited inside to witness Emma and Trevors beautiful first dance.

We stole the couple away shortly before sunset for some last light portraits at the top of the hillside at a private home nearby overlooking the Star Lake property then ducked into some private vineyards for more golden hour couples portraits.

Just after the last dance Emma changed into elegant Nadine Marabi feather cuffed silk pjs paired with her open toed glittered mule slide Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and Trevor rocked a velvet lapel smoking jacket giving off James Bond vibes. The two stole away in a classic vintage Rolls Royce as guests cheered them off.
