Amid the whispering willows, the day of Cody and Ashley’s union was a perfect day shared by loved ones. The cohesive details of the day were thoroughly composed by Vino Fiore Events. As the groomsmen got ready in their villa, there was plenty of smiles and laughter amidst the preparations. At the bride’s quarters, a similar sentiment was being shared. We were very honored to be able to capture those moments among close friends and family.
After the joyous time with loved ones, the bride and groom took a moment to read handwritten letters from one another. The intimate moment was that of a special quiet feature for the couple before the big event.
The florals by Vino Fiore Events were warm toned in adjacent to the eucalyptus hue of the invitation suite by Feté and Quill. Terra Mia provided an angelic location filled with cascading willows surrounding a beautiful centered pond. The stone walls lining the walkways created a lovely outdoor space for the event. Ashley shared a sentimental first look with her father before the ceremony where she gifted him with a custom handkerchief. Her dad’s reaction was that of every girl’s dream for her father on wedding day. The love and bond they have with each other was reflected in the images captured.
Following the first look with her dad, Ashley then prepared to see her soon to be husband in a first look of their own. As Ashley tapped Cody on the shoulder, his smile couldn’t have told a better tale of his feelings for her. On the sidelines, the wedding party stood near, cheering in gleeful shouts for the couples momentous first look reveal. Cody and Ashley’s love for their friends and family really showed throughout the important moments of the day. They made sure to include their loved ones in all the special stops throughout the event.
As guests gathered for the big reveal of Ashley and Cody, we were excited to be capturing all the candid moments of family and friends reveling in the days joyous occasion. Ashley emerged from the swaying willow trees as she was greeted by all the special people in her life. The natural stone walls created an entry way for the bride to make her grand entrance. As Ashley and Cody proclaimed their vows, promising their love to one another, they were surrounded by the soft green landscaping and organic stone walls that Terra Mia has so eloquently placed to create the most beautiful stage for this big moment.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed craft bites from Old SLO BBQ and engaged in socializing before moving to the reception area for continued mingling and delicious eats. As guests began to sit, they were directed to find table seating numbers along side the farm stand accent piece that was crafted by Vino Fiore Events specifically for Ashley and Cody’s day.
Negranti Creamery provided specialty sheep’s milk ice cream alongside small batch homemade cookies that truly gave a customized feel to the dessert menu. Cody and Ashley joined our team in the nearby vineyard for some dreamy sunset portraits. Their laughter and smiles really portrayed the feelings of the day. They were stunning to photograph and they were truly enjoying themselves throughout the process. The toasts proceeded and there was many stories and laughter shared throughout. The genuine company of their friends and family was felt through the event. The first dances were performed on the dance floor with the most beautiful backdrop of Terra Mia’s landscaped venue. Terra Mia is among one of the most beautiful venues in Paso Robles. Their perfect mixture of nature’s elements compliments an array of styles for every event.
