Closing out my 2018 wedding season could not be any more EPIC than sharing Dakota + Justin’s beautiful wedding day! With the gorgeous Picchetti Winery as their backdrop, hand built arbor (by Justin + Dakota’s father) and a visit from their puppy baby Arlo, it truly was a stunning winter wedding. The Fire Department is what first made them cross paths, celebrating Justin and Dakota’s brother’s achievements. Shortly after that, a country concert and mutual friends brought them back together, which sparked Dakota to call a friend to share that she met her husband that night!
Talk about my kind of love story… a family introduction followed up by a Darius Rucker + Brett Eldridge concert to seal the deal. Since then Dakota and Justin have been inseparable. They truly enjoy each other’s company with weekend trips to Lake Tahoe, random hiking adventures and exploring the world together! During their wedding there was chatter about the beautiful setting and wedding details, but what truly resonated was the excitement and validation from their families that they are the perfect pair. The love and respect they have for each other is beyond admirable, it’s hopeful.
They exchanged their vows during dusk for an intimate ceremony, just the two of them and their officiant stood before their family. Happy tears were shed, followed by a tasty taco truck and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG! They closed out the night with an amazing sparkler exit, a celebration not to end the night, but to celebrate the beginning of their marriage!
