Here is a sweet love story we are excited to share. It’s about a San Francisco girl that traveled the world, only to meet her love, a Peruvian, back where she started from.

The story happened in Oakland. Hillary was Luis’s client. Quit frequently, a very stressed out Hillary would run to the print shop where Luis worked at with last minute orders. A very gracious Luis would complete these rush jobs with a smile, thus helping Hillary calm down and leave with a smile. After a few months of this, Luis asked Hillary out so they can get to know each other better. The dinner date lead to many more dates, where they realized they found true love & realized they are soul mates.

Family and friends from California, Wyoming, Virginia and as far as Peru came to celebrate this wonderful couple. Their ceremony was at the St. Rose Catholic Church in Santa Rosa with a bilingual ceremony in English and Spanish. Their beautiful reception was at Tra Vigne in St. Helena. The decor was cute and the food was divine! The reception ended with many wonderful dances, with everyone showing us their passion for dancing and hardcore salsa skills.

La manera de la cual se iluminan sus rostros al mirarse el uno al otro, es simplemente maravillosa. Con cada movimiento y cada toque que se dan, irradian la felicidad que sienten al estar juntos. Gracias por permitirnos ser parte de este día y poder documentar tan bellos momentos. ¡Muchísimas felicidades!
Ahora, relájense y disfruten de toda la alegría que llenará cada una de sus vidas al haberlas unido.

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy

When we arrived at the house where Diana and the bridesmaids were staying at, we knew right away this is going to be a great day. In between hair and makeup, the girls practiced some dance moves for the night and kept Diana laughing all the way. Did we mention she has the greatest smile?

Diana and John are really the perfect couple. From how John looks at Diana and how Diana beams up every time she sees John, you know this is a couple truly in love.

Their wedding was simply gorgeous and elegant, reflecting both of their styles. We’ve always liked V. Sattui Winery for the cute building and the wine, but we were blown away by the setup for Diana and John’s wedding. We really enjoyed photographing the special day.
