California & New England Wedding Photographer » Wedding Photography in California & New England & Worldwide

It dawned on me some time ago, that once we’d move into our 1790s New England Colonial, plenty of DIY & home remodeling photos would be taken. I started to think about a separate blog that could be all about home projects and our journey of leaving California to start a new life in New England.

So without further ado, I hope you’ll enjoy this new blog and follow us through the ups and downs of remodeling an old house!!

Northern California Wedding Photographer - Rahel Menig Photography

Elissa & Andy planed a gorgeous redwoods inspired wedding up in Northern California at Ralston White Retreat. A designer, Elissa created all of her beautiful paper details to match their rustic modern style. I gotta say, these two were such troopers!! They walked all the way down to the pond – Elissa in popping turquoise heels! What a reward this little trek was – a couple after my own heart! Enjoy

Regale Winery Wedding Photography - Rahel Menig Photography

.

We celebrated Amy & Josh’s wedding day at the breathtaking Regale Winery up in the Los Gatos Mountains. This is such a unique venue, combining winery with rustic/elegant garden and all of it with that Southern European flair. Gorg! She based her design off her beautiful rose gold engagement ring, which gave the entire decor that personal touch. Her bouquet made by my dear friends of Seascape Flowers was comprised of garden roses, olive, jasmine and a touch of succulents.

They both looked so stunning, Amy in her gorgeous Lazaro crochet dress and Josh with his blue tie and shirt buttons, but nothing would have been able to overshine the love and joy these two have for each other! Enjoy

Oh my goodness, I’m still speechless! A couple of days ago I got to photograph a gorgeous styled wedding shoot at Holman Ranch and it was nothing short of amazing!! We did THREE tablescapes (eeeeek!!!) and got to play with an adorable young real life couple! The weather and sun could not have been any better, giving us the most beautiful glow down at the infamous oak tree…. A perfect day in nine squares

Cole & Joey are such a fun couple! Right from the first email we exchanged, I knew that we would be a perfect fit. Yes, I might have been a tad biased, cause this awesome girl writes her emails just like me – with a ton of extra !!!’s and smilie faces! Their wedding day was nothing short of magical, in this beautiful country location. They decorated the rustic barn to really give it that elegant look, with gorgeous chandeliers, white fabric drapes and market lights… Dream! Enjoy ♥
