Jordan and Lauren hosted a welcoming party in stunning St. Helena at the Harvest Inn. It was an incredibly beautiful evening before their big wedding day. I was able to shoot in one of my favorite styles, documentary- or as I like to call it fly on the wall. I basically lurked around capturing sweet moments of the evening. St. Helena is truly a magical place and the venue couldn't have been more stunning. The welcoming dinner was about 2 weeks after the devastating Northern California wildfires and it was a relief to see that there were some places that had remained untouched.
I had the lovely experience of photographing a community charity dinner party hosted by Bacio Catering at the Chico CARD center all proceeds donated to Catalyst Domestic Violence Services. It was such a beautiful evening with beautiful folks. Duffy's Tavern was bartending and a host of other Chico businesses donated their time and services.
I love family style dinner events and I love photographing them. Good people, good food, and good wine...what more could you ask for? :)
