Annie + Keith: Wedding in St. Helena with Julie Cheshire

Wedding

I still can’t get over last weekend’s wedding between Annie & Keith. I spent the day in wine country with Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography photographing this absolutely adorable couple.


We started the day at Harvest Inn in St. Helena where the guys and the girls were getting ready. Harvest Inn is absolutely beautiful and reminiscent of some hidden New England treasure with its brick buildings and little shaded paths everywhere.

I absolutely loved Annie’s flowers. The girls had bright yellow calla lilies with a humble green leaf wrap around the stems. Annie’s bouquet was made of green-tipped white callas with a trio of leaf wraps down the stems. I really loved the simplicity.


Her dress fit her like a glove. It was ivory chiffon with white lace appliqués all over it. The color difference really came out when she was outside in natural light. It looked perfect on her.



Oh, and the guys’ ensembles was so great. They all wore khaki Banana Republic suits, white shirts, and brown Converse chucks given to them as a surprise the night before by Keith. They looked so good!


Though Keith was quite nervous, the ceremony at Tra Vigne went off without a hitch. It was presided over by a family friend which made it all the more personal.





I had never been to a wedding at Tra Vigne before but loved the feel of it all. It’s a restaurant that had given the outdoor patio space to Annie and Keith. There were twinkling lights in the trees and white daisies, yellow rose petals, and yellow calla lilies everywhere.



It was such a beautiful wedding and Annie and Keith were nothing short of sweet and cute. They danced their first dance together to “Losing You” by John Butler Trio.

It was such a great day! Thanks, guys!

There are things in this life I
would rather not sacrifice.
You girl I cannot live without
and you know there’s no doubt that
All I mind’s losing you.
John Butler Trio “Losing You”

December in Pennsylvania is a great but difficult time for a wedding.  It’s cold, the daylight hours are few, the freezing temps hinder a lot of super cute bridal/bridesmaid dress options, and did I mention that it’s really cold?  (Maybe that was Mike talking.)  On the other hand, winter weddings have a crisp, festive feel with twinkling lights, evergreens, and beautiful nighttime moments snuggling close.  Perhaps you decide to have a winter wedding because your coffee shop is opening soon after and there’s no time for a break when you’re running your own business!  That’s how things worked for Ali and Mike and I feel very lucky that I was th ...
