This past April, I had the opportunity to return to Julietta’s Winery to document Chelsea and Laurence’s beautiful Jewish infused Spring wedding. These two wanted to do a small intimate wedding with their friends and family in the States before heading out to have a small celebration in Europe, where Laurence is from, a few months after. And they did a beautiful job planning this whole day.
The weather was simply perfect with the cool Delta breeze and everyone attending was in good spirits, especially the bride and groom. Laurence was just the sweetest groom. He could not keep his eyes off of his bride and just adored her. And Chelsea! Oh how I just LOVE her sense of humor and the cute little things she did. Like her little arm stretch before breaking the glass (a Jewish tradition) at the end of their ceremony under their beautiful Chuppah.
Let me share a bit about these two. Their love story is just too cute not to share! Chelsea and Laurence met at camp when they were teenagers as counselors one summer. Laurence had come from the UK and Chelsea was from the midwest. It was fate that brought them to the same summer camp. Once that was over, Laurence went back to the UK and as his parent’s put it, he developed a strong fascination with the US culture. Obsessed really. They went on for many years as being long distant friends. They continued this friendship for many years apart from one another. Then they finally lived in the same town and thus begun their courtship. And look at these two now! Married! They are seriously the perfect movie love story.
I couldn’t be happier for these two. They are absolutely made for one another. Congratulations Chelsea and Laurence.
I’d love to capture your unique love story! If you’re looking for a California wedding photographer, contact me here! I’d love to talk with you.
