Calistoga Ranch California Wedding Photography

“The way you capture moments is such a gift…unique, beautiful & brings us back into the moment in a way that no one else could do.  Above all of that, it was a joy to have you at the wedding, to share that day with us”

Fate has a way.  It was a mutual friend brought Heather and Kyle together,  he just knew they’d be perfect together.  Two then became three when Penelope was born.  Heather and Kyle’s wedding at Calistoga Ranch in California was a day of immense beauty, heartfelt wonderfulnesses, love, and surprise flash mob dancing!

I was thrilled to be asked to be involved in Heather and Kyle’s Calistoga Ranch California Wedding Photography, and I took my good buddy Adam Johnson as the second shooter to make sure we perfectly captured every moment of their day. The impressive Calistoga Ranch was the venue for Heather and Kyle’s stunning outdoor wedding – a vast and amazing space that includes woods and a lake as well as a range of accommodations used by the bride and groom.

The focal point for the wedding was one of the wine caves.  It was impressively decorated with a range of foliage and greenery.  The cave was atmospherically lit with candles in bell jars and fairy lights to add to the romantic and unique atmosphere.  All the guests were seated, then the children – including Penelope – followed by Heather and her father who walked down the aisle to meet Kyle under the stunning flower arch. The friend who had brought the couple together now played a prominent role in the ceremony as the celebrant for the event. Just perfect!

Following the ceremony, the reception and evening meal took place outside.  The Lommel Lawn hosted cocktail hour, and the string quartet provided entertainment, and I found time to slip off with Heather and Kyle for a few portraits in the late afternoon sun.

The dining area had a rustic natural theme, again flowers and foliage were prominent, along with a mix of apple greens, dark fern and forest velvets mixed with natural wood features. As the evening was underway, people headed to the ice cream cart for dessert and then back to the cave that had been set up for the evening with the DJ and portrait studio.

Heather and Kyle’s first dance was to  ‘Flightless Bird’ by Iron and Win.  The family played a large role, with Kyle’s sister playing the ukelele and a  mother and son dance.  But then what Heather didn’t expect was Kyle to start dancing when the song ‘Fire and the Flood’ came on, he was soon joined by Kyle and Heather’s sisters and parents, then within moments all of the guests joined the routine and circled Heather.  Tears of joy and surprise rolled down Heather’s face as the flash mob performed for her!  It was stunning to watch, really breathtaking! Future groom’s take note – *THIS* is how you do it!

Heather and Kyle’s wedding was beautiful and perfectly them. They are amazingly lovely people with great friends and family and being involved in their Calistoga Ranch California Wedding Photography was so special and something I’ll never forget.
