Steve & Kayla || Carlos Creek Winery Wedding

She’s from South Dakota.  He’s from California.  They both moved to San Fransisco and against all odds, met.  When visiting her childhood lake home near Alexandria, Minnesota, they visited the Carlos Creek Winery.  Over a glass of wine, Steve proposed to Kayla.  As they began to plan the day that began the rest of their lives, the winery seemed like the obvious place to hold the event.  Friends and family from all over the country flew in for the beautiful vintage-themed day.

Here’s my favorite thing about Steve & Kayla:  they LOVE to laugh.  It’s like Steve was made to make Kayla giggle.  When they are together, they just have to look at each other for the smile to form.  It’s obvious, as you will see, that they are perfect for each other.

I have to give a special thanks to my good friend, Jes, of Jessica Smith Photography, for second shooting with me on this gorgeous day!

The outdoor ceremony was at the perfect time for the sun to come filtering through the trees behind the bride and groom, giving the ceremony a gorgeous glow.

This was by far the most fun group of dancers I’ve come across!  The second Steve & Kayla’s first dance was over, the floor was flooded with friends and family ready to get their groove on, including Steve break-dancing!!


Steve & Kayla – thank you so very much for choosing JenniferA Photography for your wedding day!! I wish you nothing but the best for your future together!
