If you decide to have your ceremony at 2 pm or later the lighting at the ceremony spot on the property shows up beautifully in photos and will allow your two to have a wonderful experience taking it all in as you’re getting married. This lighting continually improves as the day goes on.
This is an opportunity for you and your guests to mingle all throughout the bar area and the vineyards. We’re there to capture all of those candid moments of your joy as you share in laughs on your wedding day. Since cocktail hours are usually at 4 PM onward, the lighting will show you and your guests in the best light of the late afternoon to evening.
Ravine has some gorgeous spots for sunset photos that will make your day feel that much more special as the warm glow surrounds you. We aim to pull you away from your reception for around 10 to 15 minutes. Your day goes by so fast and taking a few photos at sunset gives you the opportunity to take a moment to reflect on how wonderful your wedding has been, all while getting some beautiful photos. After we are done capturing these photos, we love to step back inside the reception to give you two a moment to be truly alone together. You two have spent all day swept up by the excitement and all of the love given to you by your guests, it is time to take a moment together to celebrate what you have created together today!
