When you're a wedding photographer planning your own wedding, I can only imagine the endless options become overwhelming. MOLLY CARR and her husband to be Ryan, had this very dilemma after first getting engaged. They went round and round with many different ideas - a large wedding in their hometown, an intimate elopement in their backyard - even Tuscany got a look in! They finally settled on a destination wedding at HAMMERSKY VINEYARDS, nestled in the rolling hills of Central California wine country, with a relatively modest guestlist of 75 close family and friends. It resulted in a long weekend filled with love, laughter and of course plenty of wine, and these images by THE WHY WE LOVE capture the mood perfectly! Molly tells us, "The most amazing part of having a destination wedding was that it made our wedding last far more than just one evening - it felt like our wedding was almost a week long affair! We organized group wine tastings, large family dinners, pool parties, and cocktail parties, which ultimately meant that by the time our wedding day arrived we had already spent time with nearly all of our wedding guests! Not only was this amazing for us to be able to have spent so much time catching up with anyone, but it created such a relaxed aura for us on our wedding day where we could truly focus on each other."
Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate to me! Molly wore a stunning REEM ACRA gown and had florals by ADORNMENTS FLOWERS & FINERY. The bridesmaids all wore gowns from JENNY YOO in the prettiest palette of lavender and lilac.
