Kathy & Michael's Wedding. Livermore

Ceremony and reception at Rios-Lovell Estate Winery.

Kathy and Michael now live in the U.K. but were engaged in Las Vegas and loved the idea of a pre wedding photo shoot there as well. As luck would have it, our schedules lined up this April and we spent two evenings photographing up and down the Strip. An image from their session is currently displayed on the Karl Ko Photography home page.

Many guests traveled from England and combined the wedding celebration with an extended holiday. Some guests spent the earlier part of the day touring Livermore valley wineries and we caught up with them at Retzlaff Estate Winery where they had a tasting and lunch. It is interesting that Retzlaff keeps chickens on the property to control the insect population.

The late afternoon ceremony finished just in time to photograph among the grape vines before the sun set completely. A relaxed reception followed which featured toasts, roasts, jokes, speeches, and thank you gifts from the bride and groom - a British tradition.
