Documentary Wedding

Valenzano Winery Wedding

I had not met Julia and Brian before their wedding day we had only chatted on the phone. That is always a little different for me since I usually meet couples before the wedding day. It didn’t matter one bit with these two though, they made me feel like I fit right in with everyone and I had a great time documenting their special day. It was a beautiful summer winery wedding and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Congratulations to you both and thanks for taking the time to tell us a little more about your wedding day below.

While getting ready with my friends and family what stood out to me is how much they care, how much they all went out their way to be there, and help make this day special. – Brian

At the start of the day I felt excited and ready to go. – Brian

I felt very relaxed at the beginning of the day. The day before had been filled with so many last minute details that I think I got all of my anxiety out then. So when it came time for our actual wedding day I was not nervous or anxious at all. – Julia

While getting ready with my friends and family I kept thinking how lucky I was to have such wonderful people in my life to be there for me on such a special day. Each person I had by my side was so different and it was great to see all of their personalities shine through and remind me why they were so important to me. – Julia

Seeing Brian for our first look was such a whirl wind of emotions! I was so happy to see him since I hadn’t seen him since the rehearsal. I remember walking out to him and he was standing so still like a statue I remember thinking it was a dream, but when he turned around I had the biggest smile on my face. – Julia

Seeing Julia for the first seeing was amazing and emotional. It was what I was waiting for all day. – Brian

It was nice to share a somewhat private moment with Julia. All day leading up to the first sight of Julia was great spending time with everyone but finally getting a moment with just Julia and I was great since all day I’ve been waiting to see her, relax, talk a bit, and get ready for our day. – Brian

Many specific moments come to mind when looking through the photos but they are all the same in the sense that we both looking extremely happy. – Brian

During our photo shoot I just remember thinking how relaxed and natural we felt. I’m usually very unnatural while taking pictures, but Ray made us feel so comfortable that it was easy. Brian also always makes me laugh so that helped a lot too. – Julia

It was so nice to share a private moment with Brian. All day had been filled with with family and friends which was rest, but it was nice that we got to have a little time to ourselves to really take each other in and ground us in the present. – Julia

Walking down the aisle was so overwhelming in itself seeing all of my family and friends, especially when they got emotional, that I could not imagine how it would have been if I had not seen Brian first. I probably would have been much more nervous. – Julia

Even though I had already seen Julia prior to the wedding it was just as great seeing Julia walking down the aisle. Julia was absolutely beautiful and it made that much more special knowing this was the new beginning of the rest of our lives together. – Brian

When going through our first dance the one thing that kept going through my mind was how special that moment was and how we just stayed relaxed, talked to each other, and had fun. – Brian

My most favorite part of our reception was dancing with all of our friends and family. I love to dance so it was really important to me that we were all up there dancing together and having a great time! – Julia

The most fun part of the reception was dancing with all our friends and family with not a care in the world while seeing everyone enjoying themselves and feeling relief that everything Julia and I were going for went as planned. It was a great night. – Brian

Our day could not have been more perfect. Everything was so…us. I felt our day was relaxed yet fun which is exactly how we are. Brian said to me he would give or do anything to have that exact day again and I completely agree. We wouldn’t change a thing. – Julia

There was nothing more I could have asked for from our night. It was exactly what we were hoping for. The friends, the family both in person and in spirit, spending our most special night together. – Brian
