Casa Real’s beautiful wedding images in Pleasanton wine country

The wine country is one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding and at, Casa Real, it’s no doubt the photography will follow suit.  I grew up in Pleasanton so it is always a joy for me to go back to my roots, especially for a wedding.  Cindy and Danny were married at the Ruby Hill winery and looking at the photos you can tell this couple is truly in love.  The smiles on their faces are full and genuine and happy.  I was hired as a second photographer for this event and below is the story I was able to capture.

When you first drive into the venue, the Casa Real sign welcomes you…

The simplicity of a custom sign such as this one adds so much…

Their centerpieces were GORGEOUS…

Casa Real houses the Ruby Hills Winery so of course I had to capture that image…

I got to hang out with the groom and his men before the bride arrived and snap a few photos.  That’s one happy groom.

And I don’t know why, but the next picture is a real popular one with the guys… hmmmm…

The best man made sure he had his speech down…

And the mini-g-men had their smiles on…

Danny’s family owns and operates a bay area sanitation company and they parked a (clean) garbage truck out front for fun.  And, of course, to take pictures on…

Danny was very emotional during the ceremony and this image shows the love he has for his mom.  It was very clear this love is extended to his family and friends as well.

The lovely bridesmaids in one-shoulder purple dresses…

And of course the flower girls and ring bearer…

A uniquely composed image of the wedding ceremony…

While exchanging their vows, Cindy’s maid-of-honor got a little emotional…

And here they are, the beautifully married couple… all smiles…

Of course we needed to take advantage of the winery’s vines…

This image is my favorite from the whole wedding…

The best man gives his speech – I love how Cindy unabashedly gives in to laughter…

The groom gives his new bride a little spin during their first dance…

And finally, while Danny was removing Cindy’s garter for the toss, I snapped these images.  I lurve the genuine smile she’s giving to Danny.  You can see that she loves him.
