When Jesse and Adrian told me they planned to get married in Adrian’s family vineyard in Santa Cruz, I knew I was in for something spectacular. What I didn’t know was just how laid back and easy it would be and how much it would feel like a giant family reunion. Their beachside rehearsal dinner (which I shot barefoot — I could seriously get used to this) — to the outing to the seaside carnival afterwards — it was just so much fun for everyone.
Plus you throw in a cadre of incredibly talented theater mafia from Northwestern/NYC and you have a Santa Cruz wedding like no other. From getting married under a 150 foot pine tree to their reception in the santa cruz twilight, it was truly magical. I wish you both all the best and can’t wait to see you back in New York this Fall.
