Matt & Brooke
I knew right away when I met with Brooke that we would be a great match. We bonded almost instantly. We had both recently lost a loved one and we understood each other's pain.
Allegretto Vineyard Resort was the gorgeous backdrop for Matt and Brooke's wedding and even the hot Paso Robles sun cooperated for the day. The weather was beautiful and the whole day went smoothly.
We were able to come up with a wonderful way to include her father in the ceremony, even though he was gone and it brought us both to tears thinking about it. She let me know that Matt was not too thrilled about getting his pictures taken (sounds like most men) so I came prepared. We laughed, we played...we had TONS of fun! By the time the pictures were done, Matt was having so much fun that he didn't want to stop! He even said that he ENJOYED having his picture taken.
Brooke was a stunning bride and even though her dad could not be there, we were able to include him in many aspects of the day. He was greatly missed, but he would be so proud of his daughter. I know he would have walked her down the aisle if he could have, but he was with her every step of the way.
