Hey guys! Dana Arnold here. I am a Carmel and Monterey wedding photographer who serves couples who value the art of photography and understand the importance of the special moments captured during your wedding day. On weekends I am free, I tend to do two things: Relax at home, or plan a fun wedding styled shoot. On this one particular weekend, I teamed up with some incredible wedding vendors and photographed a beautiful couple in the Carmel Valley, right where the Carmel fires took place.
This styled Vineyard Wedding in Carmel Valley California, had the most beautiful table setting and a gorgeous sunset over the valley! Local florist, Angie, had a vision to host an incredible styled wedding shoot. She was ready to rebrand and fill her content with her incredible work. Back in business, she created a Vineyard Wedding Shoot at local winery and vineyard, Tira Nanza in Carmel Valley, California. With the help from local wedding vendors, this styled shoot vision came to life!
Vineyard Wedding | Carmel Valley California
Last year, Carmel Valley was hit hard by fires. Tira Nanza lost half of their property. For Angie, after loosing her home, they (her family) are ready to rebuild. Angie is open for business and wanted to re-open with a bang, so she planned this styled wedding shoot! I was honored that she booked me as her photographer, and love that she trusted me to document this day.
Every vendor worked incredibly hard on putting this together and making this vision come to life. Carmel Valley is beautiful, and the hills at sunset were glowing on this session evening.

I now want to talk about this day, for the inspiration from these details are perfect for your wedding. If you are having a wedding at vineyard, these color pallets would look incredible! For the colors, we stuck with blush and white, which is a great combination.
It’s now time to set the table, and our inspiration for the table was elegance. We set the table with white plates, gold silverware, and three types of glasses. On top of the plates was a long menu, and for the centerpiece, three beautiful flower bouquets.
In the final stages of the styled shoot, we went high on the hill to a hut that overlooked all of Carmel Valley. To say the least, it was breathtaking! Golden Hour could not have been better for the final photographs of the husband and wife models!
The Incredible Vendor Team
For me, I am making it a goal to just be creative and say yes to fun, new things. I want to be able to connect with local wedding vendors and just build a fun and friendly relationship! I have to give a shout out to the incredible team for putting this photoshoot together, because without them, this could not have happened!
