The Ponte Winery | Chelsea + Brian
The sun shone brightly over the rows and rows of grape vines, illuminating the valley with beautiful light. Everywhere you looked there was beauty. The Ponte Family Estate and Winery does not have a bad spot on the entire property! Every corner is picture perfect!
I couldn't wait to get to Chelsea's room and start celebrating a day that has been 10+ years in the making! I met Chelsea and Brian a lifetime ago (10 years to be exact) when we worked at Nordstrom's Chandler location. Brian and I worked together in the Mens Sportswear Department and Chelsea worked in the much cooler Rail Department. If you aren't familiar Brian and I sold Tommy Bahama shirts and Chelsea sold True Religion jeans (remember this was 10 years ago lol).
We all became fast friends and had some crazy nights out together, but I soon left Nordstrom's and Chelsea and Brian moved to Chicago, all of us moving on to chase "grown up" jobs, or at least try and use our college degrees ;) Through the wonders of social media, we managed to follow each other's travels and adventures. As I quietly started building my photography business Chelsea took note, and I'll never forget the day I got a Facebook message from her asking me if I would want to be her and Brian's wedding photographer. First I jumped up and down and then answered "YES!!".
Chelsea and Brian are hands down some of the sweetest and most thoughtful people I've ever met. Their friends and family described them as loyal, caring and dependable, people who treat their friends like family and value their family above anything else. It was an absolute honor to be a part of their wedding day and I am so happy to be able to call this beautiful couple my friends.
Cheers to the the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Scherpenberg!!
