Wedding at Griffith Woods in Santa Rosa
Lisa and Eric's wedding at Griffith Woods in Santa Rosa had two of our most favorite ingredients: lots of love, and an amazing venue that lent itself to do what we do best, natural light photography. This venue had everything from a babbling brook, cute bridges, towering redwoods, as well as a small vineyard where we were able to capture some great first look images.
We have also heard that Griffith Woods does a limited number of weddings a year-allowing couples to have the whole weekend for setup and cleanup at this simple sweet venue. We know how stressful time constraints can be for weddings so having a little bit of wiggle room allows for a more relaxed atmosphere. We feel pretty lucky to have booked a wedding at this venue as it feels like a secluded hidden gem-like a secret spot that we feel (somewhat) guilty sharing with the world.
It was clear to us from the beginning that Lisa and Eric shared a very genuine love for one another and were just good people to be around. All of their friends and family were so happy to be there on their beautiful day and we had a great time celebrating with them. Even the flowers on the table accentuated the jubilant atmosphere of the wedding as each table setting was filled with bright and shiny yellow flowers. Guests enjoyed toasting to the couple and eating dinner in a beautiful clearing adorned with string lights and paper lanterns. The serene backdrop of Griffith Woods doesn’t need much to feel magical but we loved the extra touch of lighting for some evenings shots.
When all of these things come together it makes us so grateful we have the chance to capture great images for folks that will last them a lifetime.
