Napa Vineyard Wedding – Chad & Shaina

Chad and Shaina’s Napa Vineyard Wedding was one that Tim and I will never forget. The day started out with Shaina surrounded by her dearest friends and loved ones, a small gathering when considering her ability to make us feel like family when we first arrived. This day was set aside just for them, the rest of their many, many friends were invited to the Santa Barbara reception (more on that to come later).

Everything took place at a family friend’s private estate at a Napa Valley vineyard, one of Tim and I’s absolute favorite places on earth!

Chad hung out with his best buddies nearby, but out of site, at the Napa estate’s vineyards. Tim’s ability to connect with the guys allowed for some incredibly fun memories for Chad with his best friends.

Soon after, the Napa Vineyard Wedding began as Shaina’s sister escorted her Mom to the ceremony site.

Shaina’s dad, who has a heart of gold by the way, proudly walks his daughter down the isle. I just love this moment where you can read so much emotion in his face – a mixture of sincere happiness, excitement with a hint of sadness as he is about to give Shaina away.

Chad’s expression too, is priceless, as he watches his bride-to-be walk down the isle with his best man beside him, completely overwhelmed at the scene before him.

Chad and Shaina wrote their own vows to each other as her dad married them… naturally bringing tears to all of their eyes.

Following the ceremony Chad and Shaina’s get-away car was a Kawasaki Mule! I love this shot of their friends cheering them on as the drive away from their Napa Vineyard Wedding.

Later, as we played this image below in their slideshow, Shaina’s dad told us that this shot capture’s their personalities and relationship perfectly! What an awesome compliment, Tim and I are always striving to make our images centered around who the bride and groom are as a couple.

From start to finish, Chad & Shaina’s Napa Vineyard wedding was a heat-felt, emotional day filled with love from family members and long-time friends. It was truly an honor to be a part of, Tim and I will always remember it fondly!
