Leal Vineyards in Hollister, California is such a beautiful location for a wedding! Cassie and Eric were married at this awesome venue on September 21st. It was raining on and off all afternoon and we all thought we were going to have to move the ceremony indoors. However, after a short delay, the rain stopped and the ceremony commenced. San Francisco wedding photographer, Jim Vetter Photography just had the pleasure of shooting this gorgeous wedding with this stunning couple.
Leal has two large houses on the property where the bride, groom and their wedding party got ready on the day of the wedding. The houses are beautifully appointed and very comfortable for hanging out before the wedding.
I love brides who are willing step away from the norm and try more interesting shots. Cassie was certainly one of these brides! The bathtub shot below was suggested by her before I ever had the chance to bring it up. Great idea, Cassie!
Sometimes a photograph becomes more than I initially intend it to be. The shot of all the girls sitting under Cassie’s wedding dress wasn’t planned to look like a heart…but it sure worked out that way!
Those are the houses at top of the hill. Just below the houses is The Cave and just below that is the hot tub and below that is the waterfall leading to the lake just behind the ceremony. What a great location!
