Caity & Steve’s Vintage Estate Wedding Part 1 | Damion Hamilton | Destination Wedding Photographer

This gorgeous wedding between two beautiful mid-westerners is so full of intricate detail that I could go on forever! From the sapphire earrings, a gift from dad, to the unique cufflinks for each groomsmen (including special ones for Star Wars fan Steve), Caity & Steve did their best to make this stunning day a reflection of all the things they love.  It is unmistakeable that what they love the most is actually each other!  Look at all the laughs, the authentic reactions, and the moments you see here–don’t they bring a smile to your face?  They do to ours. Caity & Steve were just the sweetest.  We love couples that are in love!!! One of my favorite highlights of the day, Caity’s brooch bouquet, is even more special because it contained antique brooches handed down from both sides of their families.  Sasha Souza Events dreamed up the elaborate details of the this day from the crystal and ribbon draped ceremony aisle at St Joan of Arc Catholic Church to the elegant, colorful dinner at the upper pavilion at Vintage Estate in Yountville.  I won’t give too much about that away, but I wish you could have seen it in person! Incredible! For now, enjoy every detail of Part 1 of this fun couple’s wedding!

Detail of the Day | Damion Hamilton | The Detail Experience

Again, in keeping with our “ordinary becomes extraordinary” focus for the last few days, I would like to bring attention to the simple lemon.  I am fascinated with the simplicity, yet beauty of this picture…the ordinary lemons, the plain bowls, the streamlined bottles. Yet, they combine to make something beautiful. That is true art! Napa Valley Reserve

In continuing our theme of transforming the ordinary into something special, Chef Holly Peterson uses an everyday object to make an extraordinary dish–the egg.  We use eggs around our house almost everyday in all kinds of way…over easy for breakfast, fried egg sandwich for lunch (like we both had today), you name it.  But Chef Peterson turned the part of the egg that we normally throw away into a super special carrying dish for her delicious bites, complete with garnish.  I love this creativity! Check it out!
