Several months ago I met with Brad + Melanie + their pup, Mylo, for a family engagement session. I was charmed by how much they laughed together, clearly glowing in each other’s presence, so very much in love.

Even having witnessed this connection, I was blown away on their wedding day by their joy + their bond. Their ceremony included all their family members, and invited all their guests to turn to each other and consider their own love + commitments. Strikingly beautiful, earnest, and so heartfelt. Set against the modern backdrop of Novelty Hill Winery, their celebration radiated warmth and elegance at the same time.
