When I first met up with Rosie and Matt at Caffe Ladro last year to talk about their wedding, I knew right away that they were my type of couple. Matt was a gentleman. Opened the door for his lady, pulled out her chair, and placed her coffee order at the counter without even thinking twice. And Rosie is probably one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. I don’t think there is a mean bone in her entire body. She has the cutest smile and giggle and it’s so obvious how head over heels in love she is with Matt. I have to give a big thank you to my good friend Ryan for sending this amazing couple my way.

Not only did I immediately fall in love with this couple, but I was even MORE excited once they told me their wedding was going to take place in California at a beautiful winery, Clos LaChance Winery. Their wedding day was one that I will honestly remember for a very long time. The day could not have gone any better. There was absolutely no stress, just love and laughs the entire day. It was one of those wedding where you forgot the time and you could probably continue shooting all night because it was that much fun. I went to sleep that night with a huge smile on my face and now I am very excited to finally blog this wedding for everyone to see. If you missed Rosie and Matt’s fun engagement session, you can check it out here. And I also have to give one more HUGE thank you to my 2nd shooter Abi who is amazing! I couldn’t have done it without her : )


For all you brides out there who are contemplating whether or not to do a “First Look” or not…this is exactly why I recommend you DO. Rosie and Matt’s First Look was one of my favorites. The look on their faces is so priceless. Love it.

    adora - first of all! you did such an amazing job capturing the love in this shoot! omgosh, not just the bride and groom, but all the friends and family. some really great moments. second, so im reading this at work (as i usually do on my down time haha) and i seriously almost started crying when i saw the “first look” series. i dont even know these people!! and i got all warm and fuzzy :) so special. you did such a great job capturing her coming up behind him! beautiful. and third. this whole wedding was beautiful, but i had some favorite shots. i liked the grooms men sitting at the table all serious contrasted with them all casual with their feet up. haha i bet that was your idea, so creative! and the one of the bride in the dry grass field with her back turned. some really beautiful light! lots of love ton! you’re awesome girl
