Nella Terra Cellars Wedding Photographer – Ivan and Jennifer!5:02 PM
Earlier this summer I spent the day with Ivan and Jennifer at Nella Terra Cellars…an all new wedding venue in San Jose. As the venues’ first official wedding, I wanted to do something special to fully take advantage of the space. It was an incredible shoot and together with the wedding party, we came up with some seriously awesome ideas in a very unique and fresh location. The grapevines, expansive hills, and graduated blue skies contributed to a remarkably vibrant and earthy visual palette – something we never get in Southern Cali – this was gonna be a good day.
Some key favorite moments for me were definitely the first look against the rows and rows of grapevines, the Creative Session at night and the prep shots with the guys. Ivan gave each of his groomsmen their own Slam Dunk jerseys so it was only natural to attempt our own version of the iconic artwork! After that things got a bit ridiculous. (scroll down, you’ll see what I mean ha!)
Weddings, by nature, are super fun events to shoot but it’s when the guests, friends, and VIPs are also game to have some fun that we cross the subtle boundary between work and play. And just so you know, I live in the latter. =)
Ivan and Jennifer, hope you enjoy these highlights and many congrats! Much more where these came from~
Our coordinator was Alieen Styczynski of Prestigious Planning. She did a fantastic job bringing everything together and keeping things on lock. Hit her up!
