Kristen & Will’s Mont La Salle wedding was preceded by a lovely rehearsal dinner at the Andretti Winery in Napa. Having come from Texas for their wedding, I had only met Kristen and her mom during a consultation and met Will for the first time at the dinner. He welcomed me with a smile and a firm handshake. They arrived right in the middle of golden hour and we took advantage for a few minutes of the gorgeous light for portraits before they settled into a dinner peppered with some amazing toasts and stories of their relationship–mostly elaborating on what kind and caring people Kristen & Will are.
The following day at Mont La Salle, their wedding day began as the two got ready among their 9 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen! Even though they had a first look, Will’s face was emotional while Kristen came down the aisle with her father (who would later deliver an emotional toast himself which left many guests rather verklempt).
Just before sunset, we managed to get away to do a few portraits out in the vineyards looking back at the inspiring architecture of Mont La Salle. And as the dusk set on around and the lights came on, Kristen & Will enjoyed their first dance. The AM Radio City band provided the musical backdrop to the festivities to come. Here’s a glimpse of some of my favorite photos from Kristen & Will’s Mont La Salle wedding:
