Emily + Will were married in a beautiful Annadel Estate Winery Wedding in June of 2021. I’m getting there, you guys. I’m about to have completed my June 2021 Napa area weddings, so I have that going for me.
The details and aesthetic were absolutely breathtaking- which I largely credit to, clearly, Emily, and also to Gina of Bloom Generation. Honestly. Her stunning florals, the beautiful vases and details. To. Die. For. Every single detail was so thought out. The warm blush colors with the contrast of satin deep mustard yellows. And the bride’s bouquet perfectly represented her style and vision- with cascading orchids for some added dramatic effect in a casual, laid-back, Annadel Estate Winery wedding.
I was 8 months pregnant when I shot this wedding, in blistering Napa Valley summer heat (which is pretty unusual for June, to be honest). And it was still one of my favorite days of all time, despite the aching belly and swollen feet. This wedding was a dream, and Annadel Estate is absolutely breathtaking and the perfect place for a summer (or any season) soiree.
Let’s get started with some pictures of the day of details, and Emily & Will getting ready for their first-look!
And then it was time for the first look… and look. We definitely had a moment or 80 for the flowers.
Will’s face gets me every time– this is the exact reaction I always want when the groom sees the bride for the first time!
Fun fact: I went to High School with all these ladies. And now, it’s time for the details and the ceremony. Eeeee!
Honestly. How perfect is every single little thing? Gina is the absolute best.
And with that, the bride and groom danced the night away.
And they lived happily ever after.
"Kelsey Combe is truly amazing! From the moment we hired her, she was professional and fun to work with. She has an unbelievable talent for what she does, and after our engagement photos came back, we knew we had 100% made the right choice hiring her as our wedding photographer. She was responsive throughout the entire wedding planning process and was happy to answer any questions (and like most brides, I had a lot). She perfectly captured our day - it was like the photos came to life to tell our wedding day story. All of our friends and family were in awe. We could not have been happier with everything!
"Hiring Kelsey was the BEST decision!"

"Kelsey made everything so straightforward, and the day of the wedding, she was a godsend. Despite the 90+ degree heat, she kept everything on schedule to the minute. She took so much of the stress out of the day, keeping us all relaxed. I really can't recommend Kelsey enough!"
"The absolute best!"
Kelsey was more than just our wedding photographer! She helped keep everything on schedule, keep our bridal party and family organized for pictures, and even clean my dress multiple times as it got dirty walking on the streets of NYC. As the bride, she made me feel so relaxed and stress free on the day of the wedding, any bride's dream! Also, Kelsey's pictures are AMAZING!! We were so happy when we got them back, she truly captured every single detail of our wedding day so it felt like we were reliving the day.
