Photographing a wedding at Nestldown is a photographer’s dream. Add in Greta and Jeff who are not only gorgeous, but super fun, kind, and have immaculate taste and you have an amazing event! Nestldown is a wedding venue located in Los Gatos Mountains, off Summit Road.
I think I may have gone a little overboard with this post (ok, I know I did!) but I had so many amazing images to choose from, I had to stop myself so I could get these up! I could have posted twice as many! Thank you to the wonderfully talented Loren Weltsch and amazing Katy Roybal for helping me out on this day. Also, a big shout goes out to Jamie Angeli, the day of event coordinator for making this day go so smoothly!
There is also a link to the SLIDESHOW at the end of the post.
Greta’s dress was beautiful!
Greta and Jeff had a “First Look” which I adore. We set up a moment for them to see each other before the ceremony. This allowed them to have a special moment together and to get most portraits and family shots done before the ceremony even started! Greta and Jeff got to enjoy much more of their party because of it! How sweet are they???
I love this moment between the two of them, so sweet.
The flowers were perfect, done by a dear friend of the mother of the groom, Kathy Pottol.
The chapel is breathtakingly beautiful, surrounded by towering redwoods and overlooking a small lake.
Greta and Jeff took care to add in many details to personalize their event. Jeff is a sous chef at Dio Deka in Los Gatos, so naming their table after herbs was the cutest thing ever! They also had Rosemary Salt for the guests as favors. The centerpieces were magical- I love the incorporation of succulents, grapes, hydrangeas, and moss.
The grounds at Nestldown are incredibly gorgeous.
There were train rides for the guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour. The cake topper was made by Jeff out of legos- so original, I love it! Don’t you love how Jeff found the perfect chef outfit for the groom?
Congratulations Jeff and Greta!
