Wente Vineyard wedding photos – Northern California Winery wedding photography at Wente Vineyards
The setting for this beautiful wedding was at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. it was a beautiful sunny day and the weather was perfect.
Isn’t Hannah just stunning? We did all her bridal photos at Wente Vineyards, she wore a Hayley Paige dress and had a beautiful veil to boot.
The Flower House in Livermore, CA did all the flowers for the wedding. Above is Hannah’s bridal bouquet, they did an amazing job!
I love their couple’s photos. We shot them all around the grounds at Wente winery and went over to the Olivina down the road for a few more. We were able to incorporate the vineyard into the photos as well.
Joe kisses Hannah on the forehead in an intimate moment in the vineyard.
Again, loving these flowers and the champagne bridesmaids dresses, they match the winery wedding theme perfectly!
The ceremony was on the lawn at Wente, near the reception site. They had 1000 origami birds at the ceremony site, symbolic to Hannah and Joe.
Hannah and her bridesmaids celebrate after the ceremony.
I love these photos on the grounds of Wente. No vineyard wedding photo album would be complete without a beautiful sunset kissing shot!
As the sun sets, the reception begins.
Hannah’s sister and father offer toasts, congratulations and words of wisdom.

Hannah and Joe shared their wonderful wedding day with family, friends and loved ones at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. A couple words from the bride: “Our favorite moment of the wedding was right after the ceremony as we walked down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. Harden. As we exited the aisle and headed behind the gate separating us from our guests, we had a few seconds to ourselves to take in the ceremony and let our emotions go. Our bridal party was right behind us and it was a massive exchange of hugs, tears, and ‘cheers’ as we all celebrated together. With the nerves of the ceremony over, we had the rest of the night to enjoy the good food, wine, and company. Joe and I had never felt so much love in that moment for each other, for our beautiful bridesmaids and groomsmen, and for our family.”
What would Hannah tell other brides about the big day? “Enjoy every moment of it! Your engagement, no matter how long or short, will fly by quickly so make sure you embrace every part of it. Although weddings can be very overwhelming, keep in mind this is a time of celebration for you and your husband-to-be. Weddings are often very stressful as you try to sort through the logistics and try to accommodate others, but remember that this is your day and your guests will be thrilled to celebrate with you.”
She added another big tip to remember: “Secondly, be flexible! There are hundreds of moving parts when putting together a wedding and something will go wrong. When this happens, be able to acknowledge the problem, find a solution, and move on. This time in your engagement is too short to dwell on the problems that will come up. Although there were small bumps in the road during our planning process, we were so thrilled to be married in a beautiful setting surrounded by our closest friends that any previous problems were quickly forgotten.”
