Juliet and Marc had a stun­ning yet sim­ple wed­ding. Located in the beau­ti­ful Santa Ynez Val­ley, the Gainey Vine­yard was the per­fect match for these two love­birds. The occa­sional bright orange accent adds a great touch to this nat­ural and organic set­ting. Mixed with friends and fam­ily, this wed­ding needed noth­ing more! The tal­ented Mark Brooke was there to cap­ture every detail and can­did moment. Enjoy!

Girl Meets Boy…

Julie and Marc met on Amer­i­can Air­lines Flight No. 1 from JFK to LAX. Julie wouldn’t stop talk­ing to Marc even though he was try­ing to watch an episode of Mad Men (The Jet Set; Sea­son 2). OR, depend­ing on which side of the story you believe, Julie acci­den­tally checked her head­phones in her lug­gage and ran out of read­ing mate­r­ial and was forced into small talk.

Mem­o­rable Moments…

The let­ters that we wrote and read to one another dur­ing the cer­e­mony. Our first dance in the bar­rel room was also very spe­cial. Also, the nat­ural light that time of year and sun­set were amazing.
