Winery weddings are one of my favorite types of weddings to photograph – so elegant and beautiful, and none so beautiful than a wedding at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton. Just a few months ago, I got to spend the day with Michael and Tori for their romantic December wedding at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery, and I’m so excited to be sharing it on the blog with you guys today!
Michael and Tori are high school sweethearts (aww!) and their wedding was one I had looked forward to, especially after photographing their engagement session in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Field last year!
The most challenging part of the whole wedding process for them was planning it all the way from Los Angeles, where Tori is in graduate school at USC. Tori’s mom actually stepped in and helped a ton with the planning, and Tori’s dad? He actually had their home staircase remodeled when they bought the house because he had envisioned his daughters walking down the staircase on their wedding day. He wanted it to feel very Gone With the Wind, and it turned out so beautiful. Tori is the first of her siblings to get married, and I can already tell that staircase is gong to be part of their family!
