Destination wedding? Yes, please!
Sam contacted me about a month before his plan to surprise his girlfriend with a proposal. The venue changed, the dates changed, the times changed BUT his intent sure did not. The final venue? Castello di Amorosa in the deep heart of Napa. The weather was iffy but most friends know I love rainy and moody weather so I was in a very happy place.
Long story short…She said yes!
One of the greatest things about what I do is that you can really hit it off with clients. Truly, I was selected at random and this couple were just awesome. The rain, the dark clouds, my silly requests were all met with “OK, sure!”. When Sam said they were to be married in Bali I didn’t hesitate to say “Need a photographer?”. Yes, crazy and impulsive but if you don’t ask, you don’t get. So now this local for me proposal, will be a destination wedding and I simply cannot wait.
I spent a great morning with this couple and their friends secretively planning the right spot, randomly taking photographs and wine tasting! I look forward to a long weekend in Bali, a place I’ve always wanted to go and documenting this delightful couple on a most important day with their most important people. Photographing and helping to plan the proposal and to now see it through to the wedding is just wonderful. I feel most honored.
I can’t recommend Castello di Amorosa enough. The staff, the venue, the house cats…and wine are all just fantastic. The surprise proposal here and the wedding photos to come!
