Charming Riverfront Wedding | Gina + Alex
Where to start.. where to start.. Okay, you two are MADE for each other! How about we start there? I was blown away witnessing the connection you two have. From what I picked up on, you guys seemed like two best friends who have fallen madly in love. People go searching a lifetime for what you two effortlessly share. Basically you guys are what many people dream about. I remember glancing at these two on occasion on their wedding day to catch them smiling and being giddy as can be together. As it should be, I just feel so grateful to have been there to capture all the romance.
Gina is an only child so this was a big day for mom and dad. I think Gina’s mom, Angie, had more nerves then Gina. Luckily, they got to give their lovely girl away under the same chapel that they said their I do’s years prior.
This wedding was a perfect mix between tradition and elegance. These two were both raised on the importance of family, and that was apparent when I watched Gina and Alex go around and interact, making time for everyone who attended their wedding.
Napa Valley and the essence of their wineries was a huge part in the decor of this day. I noticed a lot of textural greenery, candlelight, dusty blues, pops of burgundy, & gold accents throughout the day with The Herrington Inn tying it all together.
Thank you for showing me your world. Lots of love for both of you! Please take your time reliving your day through these photos. It was truly wonderful.
