Crystalyn & Jonathan / Twin Oaks Winery Wedding

We have had SO much rain lately in the midwest. The day that Crystalyn and Jonathan were to get married they were calling for 100% rain...all day. This was no light rain either, we are talking torrential downpour rain. Ugh. Plans were altered and it didn't go exactly as they had hoped, but at the end of the day Crystalyn and Jonathan were still married. I'm just grateful that we did catch a small break and were able to take a few photos outside! Thank you so much C&J, I hope you're having a great time in Napa. :)
