Matt + Kyle’s Hans Fahden Winery Wedding is sure to make you fall in love with the idea of a vineyard wedding! Their wedding was such a fun celebration to capture, and Hans Fahden is truly a storybook setting with the most magical gardens and vignettes. It was definitely a photographer’s dream!
This gorgeous California fall wedding had all the right details, from tweed suits for the guys to a perfect autumn color palette seen throughout the wedding design and florals that is sure to inspire other vineyard weddings taking place in the fall. And, while I loved every aspect of this destination wedding, one of my absolute favorite parts to capture was Matt + Kyle’s intimate getting ready photos at a picturesque AirbnB in Calistoga around the corner from Hans Faden Winery. It was relaxed and fun, and really helped to tell the perfect story. I can’t wait for you to see the photos below! And, speaking of stories, don’t miss the fun moment captured when the guys were popping a bottle of champagne sending the cork flying up to the ceiling. Their expressions were priceless!
I’ve captured several California vineyard weddings recently, and many of those clients were planning their destination wedding from afar from other parts of the country. Although I ultimately consider myself an Orange County Wedding Photographer, since I’ve worked so much in wine country and Northern California, I’m learning quite a bit about those areas and have been able to provide a lot of help and ideas to these out-of-the-area clients. If you’re thinking of tying the knot at Hans Fahden Winery in Calistoga, or anywhere in California’s stunning wine country, be sure to reach out so I can share some of my favorite venues, wedding vendors and tips.
This was one of my favorite moments I’ve ever captured!
