Nestled in the rolling hills of Livermore, at Wente Vineyards, Matthew & Natalie celebrated a gorgeous union amongst a fun crowd of family and friends. The week leading up to their wedding was very rainy & chilly and we were even nervously checking up on the forecast, hoping/praying for a dry day. And boy, did we get lucky! The morning of their wedding the clouds parted for a comfortable temp in the 70s, just perfect for a spring wedding!
Natalie and the girls spent the morning getting their hair and makeup done at her family home nearby before heading to the bridal room at Wente. We spent some time capturing her and her bridesmaids, relaxing together before she put on her seriously gorgeous wedding dress. Natalie met Matthew down at the wine cave doors for their first look, where they shared letters and gifts. It was such a sweet and intimate time. Following their special moment, the two took lots of photos with their family & bridal party and still has some time to relax before their ceremony.
Their ceremony was held on the Vineyard lawn, a lovely grassy area facing a pond, vineyards and golf course with rolling hills behind. It was a very picturesque setting. After they read their personal vows, shared communion and exchanged rings, it was time to celebrate in the Cresta Blanca Room. There are a couple things we want to highlight from their reception. The first thing we wanted to mention was the fact that Natalie baked her own wedding cake and all the treats that surrounded it! You will see this gorgeous display in the video. And the second, the getaway car M&N drove off in was Natalie’s Dad’s vintage blue Mustang Convertible! We loved these unique details about their day! So without further adieu, here is Matthew & Natalie’s Wedding Highlight:
