We woke up near dawn to photograph Thomas and Yen’s wedding and it was pure magic when I stepped outside to see the sun peeking it’s golden rays over the hills and a sky filled with bright colored hot air balloons. It made me feel like a kid again standing in the there in the quiet morning witnessing such a simple joy.
There’s something about intimate destination weddings that I love so much. There’s the beautiful venue, Auberge du Soleil, tucked away into the hills of Napa with olive trees, quail, rabbits and entire families of deer roaming about. There’s the Bride and Groom who arrive looking oh so relaxed and happy for their day to begin. And the excited family and friends who have traveled to be there to share and celebrate with the Bride and Groom. It was such an amazing day filled with the sweetest, kindest people and it was a true testament to who Yen and Thomas are.
