Yayyy to Mr & Mrs Defazio!! Lexie & Brandon booked me for their Elliston Vineyard wedding at the beginning of 2017 so it's safe to say this day was pretty HIGHLY anticipated. It seems like forever ago that we were dodging naked people on Baker Beach for their engagement shoot (you can see that here).
Lexie's day started how most wedding day's (or any) should start: mimosas with the girls while getting their glam on. Meanwhile, the boys gathered at Brandon's family house for BBQ, beers, and boy things. On June 23rd, mother nature hit us with a whopping 105f and everyone was soaking up as much AC as possible. Luckily their ceremony wasn't set to start til 6pm, and as Elliston Vineyards is conveniently nestled in the valley, we managed to miss most of the blazing heat.
Lexie and Brandon vowed to love each other for the rest of time, loved on each other in the vineyards, shared some beautiful dances, and probably didn't stop smiling for 12 hours straight. Oh, and then there was a sparkler exit (Elliston is one of the only venue to allow this) accompanied by take-away donuts. Total dream.
As a person who professionally attends weddings, I can safely say this was one of the smoothest ones ever - seriously not a. single. thing went wrong!
