Gainey Vineyard Wedding

October 3, 2009

What an awesome day this was! We’ll aside from the southern style humidity that is. Melissa and Brandon were married late August at the beautiful Gainey Vineyard just north of Santa Barbara, California. Gainey Vineyard is one of my favorite venues around Santa Barbara. Although it is well known I consider it a little underrated. The atmosphere and staff are top notch! I really think more couples should consider this wedding venue!

I got to be there this time thanks to my friend Andrew Van Gundy who needed someone to help him out for the day. I’m always pleased and grateful to work with Andrew if I am not booked because his weddings seem to always include the coolest brides and grooms and some of the most beautiful wedding locations in and around Santa Barbara. This one was no exception!

We started with the bride and groom getting ready at this quaint little inn in Solvang, CA called the Wine Valley Inn. The Wine Valley Inn is really beautiful and has an enchanted feel to it!

Although it was a little rainy Melissa barely worried about it. She was gonna have a great day no matter what! Just as I predicted the rain cleared up right before the ceremony. That always seems to happen! Welcome to Southern California! Then it was on to Gainey Vineyard for the Wedding and Reception. It was truly beautiful. Have a look for yourself! My pictures of the day, including my signature Infrared, a slide show and a link to the other vendors involved; The Wine Valley Inn, Gainey Vineyard and Andrew Van Gundy are below…
