… And now on to their big day. Kate and Mike began their day getting ready at the picturesque Olympia’s Valley Estate. Kate was at the main house and Mike and groomsmen prepared at a smaller residence nearby on the grounds. Once everyone was set, the two met on the dock of the small lake on the property. It was the absolute perfect backdrop for this occasion. We made our way around the grounds for a quick shoot just before the signing of the Ketubah. What followed was a beautiful lakeside ceremony and a reception that was held in the estate’s updated but yet rustic barn. Getting to spend two days with everyone in beautiful Sonoma County California was such a treat! Thanks to Kate and Mike for having us out to celebrate with them.
With destination weddings, we try to capture as much as we can, usually over multiple days, and be a part of the entire wedding weekend festivities. So, if you are considering a destination wedding of any sorts, keep it in mind to include your photography and/or video team as much as you can in ALL of the weekend’s events. You’ll definitely love to relive all of it over and over again. Enjoy!
