chris and diana’s paso robles wedding at justin winery

people used to say you’ll never find your soulmate in a bar.
kim and i didn’t believe them. we met in a bar on restaurant row in waikiki,
but diana and chris didn’t meet there.
they went to the same small university in washington d.c.,
but they didn’t meet there.
they attended some of the same college parties,
but they didn’t meet there.
they both went out to bars in huntington beach california,
but they didn’t meet there.
diana’s friend got kicked out of a bar, so they went home and sat on her porch.
chris stumbled out of a bar and stopped when he heard cat-calls from diana’s friend.
that’s when diana and chris finally met.
add 6 years, a surprise weekend at justin winery, some snoogling, and turn off the lights teddy pendergrass, it’s time to say “i do!”

since it was where chris proposed to diana, it was perfect for them to have their wedding reception at justin winery in paso robles.
one of the first things we saw as we entered diana’s suite at justin winery was her exquisite vera wang wedding dress. as good as it looked all on it’s own, diana made it even more beautiful.

diana finished off her wedding attire with an amazing pair of stuart weitzman cranberry heels.

hmmm, what to do at a winery while you’re waiting? what to do?

chris and diana had a traditional wedding at st james episcopal church in paso robles

now this is one good looking couple!

mmmm, grapes.

gotta love that warm california sun!

i absolutely love chris and diana’s expressions in this shot.

the cave at justin winery holds many barrels of fine justin wine, the isosceles library, and memories. this is where chris proposed to diana.

congratulations chris and diana! you picked the best day ever to have your wedding. i’ll always remember it, and you.
we wish you both a very happy new-lywed year :)

Really gorgeous post guys. Love the ones of them with the barrels. Oh yeah, "Use the force Luke!" No, wait, that doesn't make any sense. I'll get better at this, I promise.

I adore this wedding! You all did a fabulous job! I think it's the 30th pic down in the grass, that image is just wow. I would have that enlarged BIG above my fireplace and the pic of her in the chair is stunning!

These are rippin good! I love the story of how they met, the best couples always have the best stories!

Your blog popped up in my google reader and your post caught my eye! I met my soulmate at the bar, I was working…he was drinking! :)

Great post! I love the shot of what I am assuming is the mother of the groom looking at her son. What a moment captured!

I am a terrible commenter but I am always checking your new posts and I had to comment on this! I used to drive through Paso Robles all the time when I went to college in Santa Cruz. I adore winery weddings, and this one is no exception, great job as always guys :)

simply amazing! you guys continue to push the envelope on great imagery. love it

Guyyyyyyysssss! What a fab wedding! The attention to the detail by the bride and groom was fantastic. Which one should be a giant canvas in their cozy living room? I vote for the one of them amongst the grapes!

H-O-L-Y crap guys! STUNNING with a capital S! This wedding is art pure and simple art. I adore all the winery images, Santa Barbara and Paso Robles is my home away from home!
Just gorgeous. She is a beauty and I love her style! Any one of the pictures in the field or winery could be a big canvas print! Je' Adore!

She is a stunning bride! This wedding is equally as stunning. You guys always blow me away with your art.

Um…picking up jaw from floor. Wow, these are insanely stunning wedding pictures! I pray I can talk the hubby to renew our vows and YOU OHANA will be our photographers! I keep scrolling up and down awed by these.

She's a doll! I love the shot in the winery barrel room, so hot!

This wedding is to die for! Wow you guys, art purely art.

I just stumbled across your blog and just spent all morning perusing, and i must say, wow I am blown away! These are so artistic and romantic. Consider you bookmarked!

H O L Y CRAP-OLOA! Wow. You captured so much. Stuff, emotion, love, fun, color, curiosity. Dang! You inspire me.

So glad I've taken a moment to crawl out from under my moving boxes to catch up — such a great collection. You are a muse to many!

What a beautiful wedding! It must have been a pleasure to capture it.

these are perfect. i love the shots of the two of them together, and the details are fantastic. awesome, awesome job. :)
