Laura & Joshua’s Meadowood Wedding Part 2 | Damion Hamilton | Napa Destination Wedding Photographer

Meadowood Resort was a great backdrop for  Part 2 of Laura Bush & Joshua Freeman’s brilliant wedding! Their friends and family dined alfresco under a moss covered tent frame filled with floral chandeliers.  Afterwards, the party moved indoors so the guests could enjoy the 11H Entertainment’s Infusion Xperience.  They are phenomenal.  The Infusion Xperience is so much more, but can be encapsulated in to a DJ mixing sweet tunes with live woodwinds and percussion & a bomb emcee.  I know it sounds a little odd, but these guys rock and create such a high energy, party atmosphere! If you’re looking for a completely original and unique way to let your guests whoop it up, this is the experience you want! One of my very favorite moments of the day took place after the first dance, when spontaneously, Joshua literally swept Laura off her feet and carried her off.  That was such a great moment!

Joshua and Laura, we wish you all the best in your future! Thanks for letting us share such a special day of your lives!

Laura & Joshua’s Meadowood Wedding Part 1 | Damion Hamilton | Napa Destination Wedding Photographer

Long after the wedding day has come and gone and life has moved on, there are indelible aspects of each couple and their special day that are burned into our minds.  For Laura Bush & Joshua Freeman’s Meadowood Resort wedding, it was the remarkable purity and depth of their love that most impacted us with a lasting impression.  After the wedding morning festivities (see previous post for Bridal Luncheon and Men’s BBQ/Croquet Tourney), Laura & Joshua began to focus on getting ready for the wedding ceremony.  The surrounding beauty at Meadowood was simply background notes compared to Laura in her Monique Lhuillier “Amaranth” dress.  This particular dress is one of my all time favorite bridal gowns.  The delicacy of the lace with the peek-a-boo in the back creates a stunning and flattering combination, and Laura looked radiant in it.  Though Laura and Joshua are both very handsome looking people, what made them glow even more was their love for each other.  Once Laura stepped out on her dad’s arm with Joshua waiting at the altar, she never took her eyes off of him.  Not even once on the long walk down the aisle.  It was a beautiful thing to see these two joined together.  This is only part of the story, but you’ll have to wait for the next post to see their amazing dinner and after party!

Laura Bush & Joshua Freeman’s Meadowood Bridal Luncheon & BBQ | Damion Hamilton | Napa Destination Wedding Photographer

Dallas dwellers Laura Bush and Joshua Freeman focused their wedding weekend on providing an exceptional Napa Valley experience for their guests. They kicked off their Meadowood Resort bash with a stunning bridal luncheon to celebrate the southern belles, complete with gorgeous hats.  The brain child of Sasha Souza Events and mother-of-the-bride Sharla Bush, this beautiful luncheon celebrated all things feminine, accented by pearls and hues of pink.  Meanwhile, the gentlemen celebrated with a serious BBQ complete with a delicious dessert…trays of Snickers bars.  Afterwards, the gentleman were invited to play croquet on Meadowood’s immaculate court.

Morgan & Gabe’s Vintage Estate Wedding Part 2 | Damion Hamilton | Napa Destination Photographer

 Here is the second half of Morgan & Gabe’s bright & beautiful destination wedding at Vintage Estate! I just love the varied combinations of floral pieces that Valley Flora brought to life at the reception, featuring a variety of arrangements and containers.  I also love how Morgan & Gabe tied in the “lovebird” theme from the invitations all the way to the reception. Beautiful!!

Morgan & Gabe’s Vintage Estate Wedding Part 1| Damion Hamilton | Napa Wedding Photographer

This week, more than ever, we have learned to appreciate the moments, large and small, that define and enrich our lives.  Morgan & Gabe’s wedding at Vintage Estate was a day like that.  Even looking through and prepping the images for delivery, I just found myself smiling through every picture from this wedding.  Morgan & Gabe were totally laid back and completely up for fun! I loved how they made every boutouneirre and every single centerpiece unique.  Valley Flora overwhelmed us with the job they did and I cannot give them enough credit for making this wedding vision come to life.

Thank you Morgan and Gabe for allowing us the privilege of being with you to celebrate and document one of the most special days of your lives.  Thanks for making us smile throughout the whole process:)

…and don’t forget to come back to see Part 2! There were just too many pictures to share.
