San Francisco Court House Wedding| San Francisco, California | Ako & Jeramie married

Napa Valley is the place to go when you want a high class, romantic, and intimate wedding. Mikhaela and Sean got just that at the Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, Ca. This couple originally booked us to shoot their wedding at a local Sacramento venue, but decided they wanted a more intimate setting. After going back and forth between dates and exotic locations, they settled on the Calistoga Ranch for their wedding. They are such a fun loving couple and have become good friends of ours. It was hard not to feel apart of their family as they only invited their closest family and friends to attend. They really wanted a feeling of closeness, and that was achieved beautifully.
