Ryan and Deirdra wed in the hills of wine country in California. Healdsburg Country Gardens has a big, old oak tree where they said their vows (and made me tear up). This stunning couple knows how to host a party, with a weekend of events that included a bicycle wine tour in the Russian River Valley and two relaxing nights of wine and great food leading up to the big event. I loved every detail of the wedding day, from the table place cards strung in rows to the paper lanterns adorning the trees and tables. But most of all I loved watching Ryan and Deirdra, two truly amazing people, on one of the happiest days of their lives. Aren’t they shining?
Baby Vivienne was born with a full head of dark hair and a sweet temperament. She was just a few days old when I photographed her (along with her fabulous parents Ryan and Maggie) here in Denver at a relaxing afternoon photo shoot.
