If you have spent much time in the Santa Rosa area at all, you have heard of John Ash and Company. I remember taking my Prom date there for dinner. Back then it was only the restaurant with some pretty delicious food. In recent years they have expanded the property to include an event center and overnight accommodations, calling it Vintners Inn. It is a well known wedding location, and one that I had not yet had the opportunity to shoot at. Manicured gardens, fountains, vineyards, and impressive architecture...add the beautiful couple that was about to be married and you have all the elements for an amazing wedding day.
My first meeting with Cassie and John was not one where my best foot was forward. I had been painting and digging post holes with my father, and we had planned to be done early in the day. The job ended up running much later than we expected, which resulted in there being no time to go home to get cleaned up. I had to go as is...dirty and painted. Thankfully, they still hired me and for that I am very grateful. They are an amazing couple, and I very much enjoyed being a part of their wedding day. Some of the images are below.
Congratulations Cassie and John! Best wishes on your life together.
