A MEMORABLE MOMENT: Brooks’s favorite moment was escaping to the¬†vineyard¬†for pictures with a few seconds of quiet, but my most memorable moment was right after the ceremony. All stoicism vanished as we reentered the house after our garden ceremony as we hugged,¬†laughed¬†and cried all at once, absorbing what had just happened.

FAVORITE IMAGE: Impossible to find a favorite. There are plenty of images which capture the beauty of the venue and sentiment throughout the event; but I always find myself intrigued with the photo showing an aerial view of the venue and guests during cocktail hour. I love picking out friends and family. I wish I knew what they were all talking about!
