Renee and Nicholas, two unsuspecting engineers, first connected during triathlon training of all places. (She’s the runner he’s the biker.) Nicholas heavily into biking for the past few years recently completed the Race Across America, 3000 miles in 11 days. On this special occasion we had the privilege of accompanying Nicholas on one of his rides down skyline blvd/Hwy 9 near Saratoga gap. Then back to the Los Gatos Garden Inn to capture the finishing touches on Renee and Nicholas. An hour later and we were back up in the Santa Cruz Mountains off of Hwy 17 at the beautiful Los Gatos Regale Winery where the ceremony and reception were held. If you haven’t been to Regale, the only way to describe it is picturesque with hillsides of vineyards and Spanish style architecture overlooking a valley in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The atmosphere is intimate perfect for small personal weddings.

The wedding was held out in the courtyard with a beautiful fountain right in the middle and rose pedals covering the ground. Nicholas came out with his groomsmen to the Empire Strikes Back theme song. Yes, that’s right, Star Wars. We almost couldn’t believe our ears. Renee was accompanied down the aisle by her parents here she met Nicholas at the outdoor alter.

A beautiful sunset over the vineyard and a night of great speeches, food and wine brought the magical evening to an end.
