It’s a gorgeous place for a wedding if you want distinct European vibes, a dreamy garden, and stunning architecture. Keep reading to see more about this charming Villa Montalvo Wedding that we absolutely loved putting together this editorial.
While the estate itself is really grand, we wanted something a little more low key. So this bridal session focused on minimalist design and the grounds themselves. It was a beautiful Summer day when these were taken and we wanted to emphasize the carefree nature of Summer. Imagine lazy summers spent lakeside drifting downriver. While Villa Montalvo is known for its fancy vibes, we wanted to do a juxtaposition of the normal events here.
Our bride had a short and sweet summery dress that emphasized the laidback vibes that we were going for and a simple neutral bouquet. It was intentionally minimalist and carefree.
We have done other shoots here, and it really is a versatile venue that will be able to accommodate your dream photos. No matter what you have I mind. Check out this engagement photo session we did at Montalvo a few months ago. We incorporated floral designs, and focused on the natural beauty of the area to really make a magical session.
We hope you love this session as much as we loved shooting it! It is a really special place to have a wedding. They are also a nonprofit so we highly recommend that you click here to donate to them. As a Bay Area Nonprofit, they heavily rely on individual corporations to keep both their grounds, as well as their community events afloat.
