Renault Winery Wedding | Ivy + Max

Check out this gorgeous wedding day, all courtesy of two race car drivers on Bumble that fell in love!

When I shot their engagement session, which you can see here, I got super excited for their wedding because Ivy and Max were such fun, down-to-earth people, and they weren’t afraid to make everything their own, including showcasing their beloved cars in their engagement photos.

I just loved that they celebrated and shared each other’s interests. The whole reason they choose Renault Winery was that they both shared a passion for wine and wineries and always envisioned their big day taking place among the vines.

When it came to planning their wedding day, Ivy also shared that they imagined a romantic and elevated experience with gorgeous crystal elements (including candelabras!!) and lots of cascading greenery. Yet, they also wanted it to be a place where guests could have fun in an unpretentious environment.

With wedding colors of burgundy, blush, cream, and a pop of powder blue, they settled on an aesthetic of Beauty and Beast meets winery! Can it get more fabulous?!

Their first look was so sweet in the middle of the vineyard itself, and the ceremony was so personal and intimate because a friend of the couple was the officiant.

But the reception was where it was at! In the Vineyard Ballroom, which is literally above where they used to press the grapes at the winery, Ivy and Max entered to the Formula 1 theme song, had their first dance to an acoustic version of a Blink 182 song, and had a race flag cake topper. It was all perfectly tailored to them

Add to that an outdoor lounge area with boozy nitrogen-filled desserts, cigars, and a first and last drink video challenge, where they recorded guests having their first drink and last drink, the vibe was so celebratory and electric! They even cut the wedding cake with Max’s saber from his military service.

The bride and groom were so excited to just let loose with everyone and party!

Ivy and Max’s day was full of beautiful sunlight, sentimental traditions, a couple of new takes, and so much love! I was so thrilled to be a part of it.

Thank you to all of the vendors!!

If there’s one thing we have in common, it’s our unwavering commitment to the details -

- the lush cascading bouquet, the elegant wax seal on your invitations, and the seemingly small moments that become dear reminders of your big day. But, most importantly, it’s how we thrive on connection.

I believe the best wedding photography experience happens when we’re connected. That means trusting your photographer, a level of faith I treat earnestly.   

You deserve a custom experience as breathtaking as your final gallery, and that’s what I’ll deliver.

and I can’t wait to capture it.
of a lifetime,
Your wedding day is the
