From the moment we first spoke on the phone, I’ve been waiting for Marissa and Joe’s Stone Tower Winery wedding! They are both incredibly kind and easy-going. I knew no matter what, their wedding day was going to be fun, beautiful, and relaxing. Marissa started off the morning getting ready with her girls in the Bridal Cottage followed by a first look with her brother and dad. I think everyone watching was moved to tears as she shared this special moment with her family before seeing Joe!
Joe came over to the cottage for the first look. The photo of Marissa giving her besties a thumbs up before walking up to him really says it all- so excited that their day was finally here!!! After their first look, we went to one of the best overlooks at Stone Tower Winery and took portraits!
Marissa and Joe really wanted time to enjoy cocktail hour and their reception so we knocked out all the bridal party portraits before the ceremony. I love this! It slows down the day and gives everyone involved time to take a breath. I was excited when I had plenty of time during cocktail hour to photograph all of their beautiful reception details.
Before the reception began, we snuck off before golden hour for portraits, and OH MY- Some of my favorite portraits ever. Marissa and Joe, you both are such naturals in front of the camera! I love the way you radiate happiness. The rest of the night was filled with dancing and guests enjoying the cigar bar outside.
Thank you to Marissa and Joe, their family and guests, and all the vendors for a wonderful wedding day!! I’m sad it’s over but scrolling through their blog post and reliving it brings a smile to my face!
All the first looks! Starting off with Marissa’s brother, dad, and then Joe.
Now onto my favorite time of day at Stone Tower Winery- golden hour!!
I told Marissa and Joe that I would keep an eye out on the lighting during dinner and once it looked perfect, I would grab them for just another couple of minutes to take portraits. So thankful they trusted me, these ended up being some of my favorites!
Their dog Tank joined us for their engagement session and made an appearance at their wedding!
