Croad Vineyards Wedding
Ryan and Carissa’s wedding at Paso Robles wedding venue Croad Vineyards was a
beautiful evening with great friends. I have known Ryan since our time together studying for Viticulture exams at Cal Poly and been great friends ever since. We were all so happy for him when Carissa came into his life and the addition of another Render to the world in their daughter Lilly has been amazing! I was honored to have them ask me to shoot their wedding. While I don’t often shoot friends weddings I knew theirs would be awesome and I wasn’t disappointed.
I have to point out the image below of Carissa holding the little yellow bird as it’s probably the most amazing thing I have had happen at a wedding! I was just getting Carissa so she and Ryan could do their “first look” when I turned around and noticed a little bird sitting on the ground. I bent down and put my hand out only to have it jump right in my hand! Carissa stuck out her hand and the bird happily sat in her hand while I got a few images and then flew off. Pretty amazing!
Also have to thank Kim of Flowers By Kim the awesome Paso Robles Florist who jumped in at the last minute to save the day then helped a ton behind the scenes to pull off an amazing day!
