I’m so excited to share Kenia and Jon’s Leal Vineyard Wedding on the blog today!
Let’s get to know their backstory a little more, shall we? These two first met in 2016, the night of Kenia’s college graduation celebration. They instantly hit it off and went on their first date a couple weeks later. Little did she know, she’d be marrying this man at one of the most gorgeous venues in Hollister, California.
Kenia and Jon tied the knot on September 23, 2022 surrounded by their family & friends. Their two adorable fur babies walked down the aisle too! #goals. Once these two were officially married, it was time to party in the Barrel Room. It looked like a fairytale with the wine barrels, string lights, and decor. I later ran into one of my past brides during reception (you can find her wedding blog here) and that was a nice surprise!
I snuck Jon and Kenia out of their reception to go catch the remaining sunlight for their husband and wife portraits. We hopped on a golf cart, drove to the top of the property and found the best spot with a view! It was probably one of the best views I’ve seen at a wedding venue. Afterwards we drove down to some vineyards and got to play in them for a few more photos before they needed to get back for speeches. Later that night, we snuck out once more for some end of night photos under the string lights in the olive grove.
Thank you so much Kenia and Jon, for letting me be apart of this special day. It was so much fun and I truly felt like I was just attending another one of my friends weddings. I wish you both the absolute best in life and in marriage. Let’s keep in touch for future family photoshoots (;
