I’m super excited to share this Nelson Family Vineyards wedding with you. This is the first time I’ve shot a wedding at Nelson Family Vineyards and it was awesome. Full disclosure I might be a little biased because the venue is a twelve minute drive from my house and it would be terrific to shoot more weddings with zero commute. That being said Nelson Family Vineyards is a huge property and offers many different options in terms of backdrops. You have the vineyard, redwood grove, and old barn to pick from. On Micaelyn and Kenneth’s very warm Memorial Day weekend wedding we were able to fit all three spots in. I was very happy with all of the photos from their wedding especially the first dance moment between Micaelyn and her father. It’s very rare and difficult to capture candid moments without a guest or family member ruining it holding up a phone and becoming a distracting element in the image. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at a lot of venues in Northern California and it’s very hard to find a unique venue like this. If I was searching for a wedding venue Nelson Family Vineyards would be on the top of my list. Be sure to check out Micaelyn and Kenneth’s engagement session that also took place at the Nelson Family Vineyards.
