Char and Barb, Newcastle, CA.
I was referred by a high school friend to do Char and Barb’s wedding, and it was simply amazing. Char and Barb have been together for many years and decided to June of 2016 was their time to get married. The ceremony took place at Barb's family ranch in Newcastle, and the beauty of the area rivals that of any wedding venue I’ve attended. Their theme was a “country bohemian” style that beautiful and elegant, and fit the venue and their personalities so well.
Although the pleasure of meeting Barb and Char for the first time face-to-face occurred on their wedding day, I immediately had a comfort level and rapport with them that made me feel like I was part of the family. In hearing the heartfelt sentiments of love from the toasts made by parents, siblings and nieces and nephews, it was obvious that Char and Barb are two very lucky and very loved people.
Photographing the ceremony under the trees was simply amazing. The incorporation of a hay ride for the flower girls and ring-bearers was a great to witness. The grand entrance to the reception in a beautifully restored MG added to the magic of the day.
My assistant for the day was my daughter Natalie. Char and Barb truly made us both feel so welcomed into their wonderful circle of friends and family. Thank you for allowing us to capture a truly amazing wedding.
