Jessica and I both have a super mutual love of Alice in Wonderland. In fact that’s how we originally ended up talking and how I knew I had to photograph this wedding as soon as we started talking about all the DIY details she was planning for her Alice themed wedding. When we met again during her boudoir session and I saw her Alice in wonderland tattoo, we ended up geeking out some more and I realized just how much more in common we were and how awesome she (and her mom) are! I met Thomas for the first time on the day of their wedding and you could truly see how in love they are immediately. It was such a beautiful and emotion filled day and their joy was everything a hopeless romantic wedding photographer could ask for.
From the start of the day, with those incredible “Open me” Alice in wonderland invitations and all the greenery made me a kid in a candy store. All the bridesmaid dresses were shades of blush and mauve and all complimented each other in their mismatched state. Walking into Vintner’s pavilion at Valenzano Winery with Jessica’s vision felt like walking into a Pinterest board of gorgeous. It was lightly raining but not enough to make us have to run for cover. As soon as you arrived, there was ceramic tea pots and a white rabbit greeting you at the entrance sign. The ceremony was moved under the pavilion due to the rain, but the natural light and wood tones in the pavilion still complimented the whole feel. Her seating chart had all little mini keys and there were Alice themed cards throughout the food tables and on the bathroom doors. Those incredible table settings… omg.. the greenery and flowers — all the gold tones. And then I saw that insanely beautiful cake. yup. Done.
