Vineyard Weddings at Alcantara

Yesterday, I had the honor of meeting with the owner and dreamer behind Alcantara Vineyards in Verde Valley, Barbara Predmore. She gave me a tour of their 87 acres of beautiful terrain and shared her heart and passion for the sacred land and its resources. It was a beautiful day that I will always remember. The beauty of what Barbara is doing in some ways, has little to do with wine. Barbara and her amazing team are creating a culture. A place for people to connect together, respect the earth and realize life is about people and relationships. Her dreams are so much bigger than harvesting and producing wine.

So you may wonder what this would have to do with me, a wedding photographer or weddings. Barbara and I connect on a level of understanding that life is art. For me, that art is in my subjects, in the locations we choose and in the emotions inspired in a single moment. Alcantara Vineyards offers brides and grooms a fresh idea for outdoor weddings in Arizona. Spots throughout the land offer completely different experiences, giving brides and grooms the ability to create a unique backdrop to their wedding day. The views are breathtaking and you can feel the energy in the land and the people. It was truly an amazing experience I am thrilled to share with you.
