Lush hills, rows and rows of grapevines in private vineyards, and that golden California glow! Sunset is our favorite time for photos and the perfect time for a shot of a wedding getaway car exit in a white convertible Rolls Royce! The impulse to raise their arms in joy as they headed down the winding road together makes transforms the image from a lovely landscape to a definitive moment! I love how the one of the bride's arms is wrapped around her husband while the other is waving her bouquet in triumph. I love the groom's pumped fist. I love the sun's glow on the vineyards and the vintage car. The image of the newly wed couple driving down the road into the sunset together as a symbol for their journey towards a new life together is classic, but true - after all, as the poet Nikki Giovanni wrote, "We love because it's the only true adventure."
