A personal letter from the Bride + Groom....
"We have always loved the California wine country and getting married there has made us even more sentimental about it. We were stunned and saddened by the devastation caused by the wild fires that swept across Santa Rosa and surrounding areas. We continue to pray for all those affected by this tragedy. We send our sincerest gratitude to all those who helped make our wedding weekend so very beautiful." - Cristina and Steve

On the 7th of October I had the pleasure of photographing my friends wedding in Sonoma, California.... my home town. It was such a beautiful wedding, every little detail thought out and executed with style.
The couple flew me in to SFO -the city where I was born. It's been a long time since I drove through the streets of San Francisco but it had been like no time has passed... the city is beautiful and the weather was, well perfect- that perfect NorCal breeze blowing...if you've been, you know exactly what I'm talking about....Something Texas hasn't quite mastered.
I was able to stay at The Flamingo in Santa Rosa - probably a little more excited about that then I should have been but I was home... even if just for the weekend it felt good. We drove to Sonoma where the couple was renting out a beautiful air B&B to get cleaned up and ready then off to Gundlach Bundschu Winery-one of the most beautiful vineyards in Sonoma County!
The couple was surrounded by their closest family & friends and in a word it was perfection.

On a personal note... a day after this beautiful wedding took place Northern California specially Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa and Calistoga was all but taken over by wildfire. Its been absolutely devastating. Please say a prayer and uplift all who live there along with the first responders that have risked their lives fighting this fire. #santarosastrong #hometown
