A winter wedding reception at Murrieta's Well Mike and Marissa had eloped in Lake Tahoe earlier this year. I met up with them at a local coffee shop to discuss their plans of the reception party at Murrieta's Well in Livermore. I was beyond grateful when they decided to book me right then and there, because not only were they just completely down to earth, and got my humor, but again, had an intimate reception dinner planned with only close family and friends. I suggested since they were already married, that they get dressed together, fixing each other's attire for the evening. I'm so glad they took my idea, because it was a beautiful moment of the prepping. My favorite part was Michael trying to get on Marissa's shoe. We then drove over to Murrieta's Well and started with their couple portraits. Followed by fun candid moments of their close family and friends. The Candlelit reception was gorgeous with the beautiful flower arrangements that adorned the long family style table in the middle. Brian and I absolutely loved this wedding. Make sure to view their wedding sneak peak video at the end of the blog.
