Julie & Paul Kavanagh | May 21, 2011
Oh how we love wine country weddings, especially when they are between such a lovely couple as Julie & Paul.
On a beautiful Saturday in spring, nestled deep in the winding canyon roads of Calistoga, this sweet and romantic marriage took place. Julie herself is an artist, a brilliant painter in fact, so we were certainly honored when she sought to film this most important day in LoveSpun artistic fashion. It was important for Julie & Paul to have their day documented in a way that is reflective of their own passions and artistic taste and so they also commissioned another fine artist…an artist of photography. We had the pleasure of shooting alongside Gia Canali, which you will see make a cameo in the film below. Gia is known for her unique style, utilizing many types of modern and vintage cameras to create “picture perfect” photography. Gia’s work simple, beautiful, and timeless and we are always blessed to be able to work alongside and meet such amazing people in our travels.
Julie applied her talents in planning for this wedding by crafting many lovely things such as beautiful invitations with caligraphy, embellished with vintage postage stamps, and making by hand, fascinator headpieces for her bridesmaids. Luscious florals were arranged by The Blue Orchid and onsite coordination was handled by Hans Fahden.
The couple began preperations for the big day at the Solage resort in Calistoga, a gorgeous property sprinkled with wine country cottages with cute bicylces on every front porch. Once everyone was ready they embarked on a short journey to Hans Fahden Winery. Hans Fahden certainly lent itself to an artistic backdrop with groves of towering oaks, vineyard covered rolling hills, and a serene, Claude Monet*esque pond with Lilly pads a plenty. It was a visually stimulating experience for all those who attended and a pleasure for us to film. Congratulations to Julie & Paul and we hope you enjoy their handmade wedding film.
