Julie & Erik
Celebrating Julie and Erik’s September 22 Wedding at the Picchetti Winery in Cupertino California.
The well known peacock’s of the Picchetti winery leisurely roamed the wedding areas as everyone else remained busy getting the day together.
Julie and her bridesmaids prepared themselves in the yellow house, while Erik and his groomsmen prepped at a house overlooking the vineyards perched just beyond and above the winery. Like many, both were enjoying the moments before to ponder their union that would soon be witnessed by their closest friends and family.
When the sun lowered slightly just over the tree lined hills, the family gathered around the winery’s rustic barns to witness the couple’s I do’s. To mark the start of cocktail hour, a tower of Picchetti’s wonderful Rosé cascaded into the sparking glasses. At a winery like this, a bubbling tower is the perfect way to begin a celebration of love and union.
As guests wandered the grounds with their glasses of bubbly and delicious Chinese buns, we took the couple away for some romantic moments together. We walked along a tree-arched path chasing the light with the newlyweds before heading to the reception.
Soon enough, a buffet table offering rustic tomato pies straight from an Italian brick oven on wheels served the guests! The reception was held inside Picchetti’s cozy tasting room. A constellation of lights clustered and dangled from the wooden beams above as Julie and Erik danced and made their way around the room to thank and toast to each table. The speeches from friends and family were full of love, laughter and some tears for the couple. And as always, the night ended with a lot of dancing.
We absolutely loved capturing Julie and Erik. It was such a pleasure to meet their family and friends and to photograph their special day.
