Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding: Jessica & Brian

FILED IN: Weddings

It all began with our consult. I immediately fell in love with this couple, Jessica & Brian. We planned a fall engagement session in Golden Gate Canyon State Park and I was blown away by how open and willing they were to get the images we all wanted. It was a great day and I knew that their wedding would be special.

The day of Jessica & Brian’s wedding it was forecasted to rain the entire day, but what happened was gorgeous light and a slight breeze. It was a beautiful day at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. I swear this venue never disappoints!! We were even graced with beautiful creatures during the ceremony (seriously check out the group of deer!) And the reception details (honestly the ceremony details too) made me swoon. I’m STILL swooning and may have included a large amount of them below so beware it’s a lengthy post, but it will have you drooling! Future brides, take note! There’s a tone of fabulous inspiration headed your way!! The florals from Lace and Lilies and the cake from Daddy Cakes Bakery… holy cow! And of course paired with Della Terra’s reception room. I almost died. The details of their day were overwhelming and absolutely perfect. I couldn’t think of a better representation of their love and the beginning of their journey as husband and wife. It was even completed with signature cocktails and the warmest group of people. What a pleasure it was getting to be a part of this day.

Jessica & Brian, thank you so much for trusting us with your day. You’ve touched our hearts and left us inspired by your love. We wish you the best of luck with your move and know that your marriage will last for years and year. And then some more. The way you two love and respect each other truly is a sight. We’re honored to document it and look forward to watching it grow over time. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Stafford!!

Della Terra will forever hold our hearts <3
