Christa & George / An Autumn Wedding at St. Joseph’s Winery

As clouds filled the sky and rain started to fall, Christa sat in a small room above the St. Joseph’s Vineyard tasting room. She was full of emotion as she gazed out the window, mentally preparing herself for her autumn wedding day just a few short months before her darling baby was to be born.

I met Christa and George at a small coffee shop in North West Portland for the first time that summer. They told me about their quick and intense love story, how they worked together for years, George dreaming of Christa until her eyes finally opened and landed on him. They fell instantly in love, created life, and started a life together over the course of a season.

Their wedding day was a dream, the overcast sky refusing to let loose during the first look, ceremony, and portraits. All of Christa and George’s closest friends and family gathered together for an evening of laughter and tears, great conversation, and a few crazy dances. They looked on as the newlyweds spun around the dance floor with eyes only for each other until the sun was long gone and it was time to say goodnight.
