Justine + Alex had their V. Sattui Winery Wedding in St. Helena on 4th of July, a day so suited to Justine – a lover of fireworks and native of Napa. Those smiles!! Those are the first words that come to mind when I think of Justine + Alex. These two have magnetic personalities and are such genuine, loving people. We feel like they are old friends, having spent so much time together with them when we photographed Gina + Kelechi’s wedding last year. Justine was Gina’s maid of honor and Gina was Justine’s.
When Jay returned from the wedding with beautiful images and I saw just how much fun they had (read best DJ ‘s ever here!!) I was jealous I was not there! Their day was beautiful, complete with gorgeous florals by Karen Silva, and a perfectly orchestrated day compliments of Coordinators Darlene and Jim Forbes and Stephanie Morris of V. Sattui Winery Wedding.
Justine donned a stunning Allure Bridal gown with open back and gorgeous lace and beaded detail and Alex’s expression when he saw his bride walk down the aisle was beautiful. The couple kept with tradition and did not see each other prior to the wedding ceremony, rather read each other a letter and met hands in their “modified first look.” We love personal touches and unique moments in a wedding and the way Justine + Alex chose to have a few moments together prior to their V. Sattui Winery Wedding without seeing each other was special to them and fitting to their personalities.
Congratulations Justine + Alex! We loved working with you, look forward to seeing you again soon and wish you every blessing in your marriage. xo, Jackie + Jay
