Alyssa and Geoff celebrated their wedding at Terra Mia, a beautiful venue nestled in the heart of Paso Robles wine country along California’s Central Coast. While it may have been one of the hottest days on record, the two took it in stride and celebrated a day that won’t soon be forgotten.
A couple of months before the wedding, I had the wonderful opportunity of sitting down with the soon-to-be-newlyweds. Over a cup of coffee at Brú they shared their detailed vision for the big day. The more we talked the more their excitement seemed to bubble over and pretty soon, I found myself not wanting to wait another minute to start capturing the beginning of their lives as husband and wife.
The day finally arrived and we first met up with Alyssa in the guesthouse as final preparations were underway. The energy and anticipation that was in the air was second to none. As Alyssa spun around in her wedding dress with her bridesmaids cheering in excitement, I knew we were in for a great time.
Geoff had started the day off right with a surf sesh and after a quick suit-up, he was ready for the first look. Under the willow trees along the edge of Terra Mia’s private lake, Geoff turned to see his bride for the first time. I can only describe it as beauty and perfection. And the rest of the day was no exception.
Under a meticulously constructed chuppa, Alyssa and Geoff promised the rest of their lives to each other. Rabbi Janice officiated and their closest family and friends played witness to the public declaration of their love. A resounding, “Mazel tov!” kicked off an evening filled with great food, dancing, and heartfelt toasts. The reception was a celebration that dreams are made of and I hope that as you watch this glimpse into Alyssa and Geoff’s special day, you feel all the warm and fuzzy feelings we’ve felt while filming and editing it. Enjoy!
