Mellena and Greg - Wine and Roses
It was HOT... So, so hot in Lodi this past weekend! We endured the 105 degree weather to capture some beautiful moments for Mellena and Greg at Wine and Roses. This was a really fun wedding for us to photograph. Mellena's family is from Iran and they incorporated a few Iranian traditions to their ceremony and Greg is a member of the band, The Phenomenauts. So, it was an eclectic and lively bunch attending the event. There was a lot of celebratory dancing and animated personalities blossomed in front of the camera for their 'visual guestbook'. Mellena was striking and beautiful and her bridesmaids looked great in their red dresses. Greg and his groomsmen were very easy to photograph... I think that they had been in front of the camera a few times before. It was Mellena's wish to be photographed in a vineyard for their portrait session, so we scouted a little farmhouse with a vineyard and orchard before we arrived to the wedding. The location and end of day light were just perfect for us to photograph this stunning couple. Thank you to Mellena and Greg and we wish them the best!
