Celeste and Jon – Getting Ready at Chileno Valley Ranch

Celeste and Jon made it official a few weeks ago at the beautiful Chileno Valley Ranch.  You may remember their cool engagement shoot at an old warehouse in West Oakland.  The day at Chileno was on the other spectrum of look and style.  Light, natural, beautiful.  I was so happy to be a part of this union -thank you Jon and Celeste for asking me to document your wonderful celebration.

From Celeste about the dress:  “I found the dress through pics of a wedding in Berlin, loved it, but no one carries the line in North America.  I bought the dress and sent them measurements, sight unseen.”   I love that!
