Debbie and Ron's Wedding | Healdsburg Wedding | Healdsburg Wedding Photographer
Debbie and Ron's Healdsburg wedding was small on guests, big on meaning.
Here's the littlest guest, Ron's grandson. There were seven other guests: Debbie and Ron's children, and their partners. To get to witness and document such an intimate gathering was a true privilege.
Ron and Debbie have been together for more than a decade. While they never felt any rush to get married, they always knew they were a perfect match. They held their wedding at their vacation home in Healdsburg, which they have meticulously restored over the past year.
Their adoration and respect for one another is obvious, as is their love for their children and their entire family. Witnessing the love and respect between parents and children at this wedding was one of its most moving aspects.
Here's their first look, held right out on their back porch, while all of their children watched from inside.
Debbie and Ron's children are all recently married, or have marriage in their not-too-distant futures. And while no one said it explicitly, I knew everyone at the wedding knew: "This is what good, enduring love looks like."
Debbie and Ron had their ceremony right in their living room, with light from their enormous picture windows pouring in.
Did I mention how gorgeous their children are?
Do these two look familiar? I met Debbie and Ron through Debbie's son Eric, and his fiance Sarah, whose wedding I'm photographing in October. It's the first time I've photographed the weddings of a groom, and of his mother. How cool is that?
As if the day wasn't sufficiently chock-full of beauty, I also got to spend some time with Ron's daughter, son-in-law, and grandson down at the river, where we took some family portraits.
This little guy was so exuberant and charming - and so full of love. This is clearly a blessed family, and I feel so lucky I got to be there for this special day.
Thanks to Ron and Debbie, and to your entire beautiful family. I can't wait for the next chapter of your story.
