Vineyard Oaks Wedding Video and Private Vineyard Wedding
Every time we get to shoot a wedding with Cassandra at the helm, we almost know we’re going to get three things: 1) An awesome couple, 2) the best vendors and 3) a day that clicks along seamlessly and beautifully captures the essence of who the bride and groom are. As a result, Ashley and Patrick’s wedding was no exception as they celebrated the joining of their lives at Vineyard Oaks in Lemoore, CA.
We first met up with Ashley and her girls at the Coelho residence where final preparations were underway. I honestly can’t remember a bride being more excited to get into her dress. Ashley was so pumped, she literally started dancing and twirling as soon as the dress was zipped up. It was at that moment I knew we were in for a good time.
From there, we made our way over to Vineyard Oaks where Patrick and his guys were suiting up in the airplane hangar. A few moments later, we had him under an old oak tree, ready to see his bride for the first time. I can’t really put into words the feelings associated with seeing your life partner for the first time on your wedding day, but it’s epic. I think Patrick would agree as he turned to see Ashley. A wave of calmness and simultaneous excitement seemed to wash over both of them as they embraced, sharing a moment that I’m sure neither will forget.
Ashley and Patrick exchanged vows on the lawns in front of their closest family and friends. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with laughter, tears and some very slow moving sand. 😉 In addition, the party kicked into high gear with dinner by Love and Garlic, drinks served up by I Do Cocktails, belly dancing by Andalee Bazaar, a photo booth and music spun by AMS and ice cream by the Sugar Shack. Best Party handled the rentals, Light up the Walls made sure the lighting was on point and Gonzalves-Fasso Flowers arranged the flowers. There to capture everything with us was the incredibly talented Mark Janzen who’s talents will blow your mind. All in all, it was a perfect day for an amazing couple. I think you’ll agree as you watch this glimpse into Ashley and Patrick’s very special day. Enjoy!
