Melissa & Ian’s Off The Beaten Path Sonoma Wedding, and my heart beside.

By October 8, 2012Weddings

It’s easy to get me swooning – acts of love, words of affirmation and poetry rarely miss the mark. This one from Emily Dickinson, read at Ian & Melissa’s elegant and perfectly curated Off The Beaten Path Wedding was a bulls eye.


It’s all I have to bring today

This, and my heart beside

This, and my heart, and all the fields

And all the meadows wide

Be sure you count  Should I forget

Some one the sum could tell

This, and my heart, and all the Bees

Which in the Clover dwell.


It was a pleasure capturing this day, not only because Ian & Melissa are awesome, fun and stylishnor simply because the venue was utterly stunning and the full moon rising over the Sonoma Hills unexpectedly glorious.  It was a joy to capture this day because Ian and Melissa and their friends, family and the team from Off the Beaten Path Weddings continually give their hearts AND everything else.  This, and my heart beside, This, and my heart, and all the fields, all the meadows and bees and THIS my heart beside, All these beautiful images and my heart beside.  Enjoy!
