Bernardo Winery Wedding | Jennifer + Alfonso

Alright, I admit it. I have been bursting at the seams to show you this wedding ever since we stepped foot onto the Bernardo Winery property and saw all the rustic details, charming village shops and neat rows of grape vines. It was like stepping onto the set of a John Wayne  movie.  But what really sealed the deal for us was meeting up with Jenny and Alfonso again. We loved meeting them this past summer for their engagement session at Balboa Park, but this time was different. This time it was their wedding day.

Now I want you to imagine the cutest couple you can think of, then multiply that by 1o0 and you have Jenny and Alfonso. Yep. They’re that awesome. I mean Jenny is just a bundle of spunk, beauty and kindness, and Alfonso is patient, even keeled and one of the most thoughtful people you’ll meet. Together they are force to be reckoned with!

Here are a few shots that we got upon arriving at the venue. We love how every detail is so stylized!

Well as you can see we had so many great shots from the First Look that we didn’t even make it to the ceremony! Get excited because we’ll be back tomorrow with a Part II that’s overflowing with a beautiful ceremony and all the pretty fall-themed details from the reception. Same time same place!

Un abrazo fuerte,

Natalie
