Meredith was a dream right from the start. Her warm personality and vision for a custom, romantic whimsical day that had one main focus of love, won us girls right over. Family and friends surrounded Meredith as it was time to beautify. It truly was a beautiful day. We wish Meredith the happiest ever after.

Jonathan Edward's Winery Wedding/Photos by Jennifer Bach
May 7, 2014

This was an intimate, small wedding at Jonathan Edward’s Winery with all the detail you could imagine.  Amy and her lovely family (mom, sister and daughter) made the best of the day despite the romantic rain fall.  Amy’s daughter, Maggie, was dancing away in the background practicing for her upcoming dance recital and was more than excited when it was time for her lip gloss and sparkling eye shadow.  We wish Amy and Brian all the best and felt truly blessed to work with such a wonderful family.

Amy’s look included a romantic earthy eye with soft lashes, adobe blush and a nude nature Jennie Fresa luxury gloss lip.
