Laurent and Thomas’ passion for wine has taken them on adventures around the world exploring Bourdeaux, living in London and having their wedding in Sonoma Wine Country at Soda Rock Winery. Soda Rock Winery is a gem in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma Wine Country and boasts views, history and details perfect for intimate weddings.
When choosing which couples to photograph for my wedding photography, I’m seeking those who share my sense of adventure and gregarious nature – Lauren and Thomas are exactly that fit. How Lauren constantly smiles when she is around Thomas, their love for wine and travel, it’s all there and seeing them together you know they would be the perfect travel/adventure buddies.
Lauren’s sister Katie was so happy for her sister and was in tears during the first look. How much she cares for her sister was abundantly obvious throughout the entire wedding.
Soda Rock winery gives wedding couples the perfect location for their first look – a rustic wedding barn on property provides seclusion and amazing light.
Elegant and charming – Lauren and Thomas had style to envy at their Sonoma wedding.
Thomas and Lauren could easily be models for my next styled shoot.
Sometimes I ask my couples to do silly things, this time I was having Lauren spin around in her dress when Thomas decided to mimic her in action with his suit.
This barn!! Rustic barn weddings are always for the win, but at Soda Rock Winery, even if you don’t want a barn wedding, you can still use their barn for formal and posed wedding photos.
Lauren and Thomas’ ability to relax and enjoy the day and share in some laughter with their siblings/bridal party made the day breeze by. (I don’t trust those who don’t smile, thankfully there was a lot of trust going on here) 😉
Soda Rock offers several wedding ceremony sites at their wedding venue in Sonoma.
Not only did Lauren and Thomas smile the whole way down the aisle at their Soda Rock winery wedding, but they danced down the aisle!
It’s the small details, the little moments that set each couple apart for me – in their own world having a moment all to themselves yet immersed in family and friends.
Ssshhhhhh – don’t tell anyone, but we snuck into a nearby winery for some beautiful wedding photos and a mini adventure nearby to Soda Rock winery.
The ability to goof off and be playful together is a trait I value in all of the couples I choose to work with.
By this point I’m pretty sure I was laughing as much if not more than Lauren and Thomas with all their goofing around.
