I had the pleasure of seeing my dear friend Elena get married at this vineyard last summer. It was a perfect day, and the love between Elena and Adam filled this stunning place. They walked down these steps and said their vows at a spot underneath the trees. It was truly one of the most beautiful celebrations I have been to in recent memory. The venue, Vista Hills Vineyard, only added to the day with not only this amazing view, but with their delicious wine.
Elena and I have worked together for 10 years and have become close friends. Over the past few months she has helped me with so many facets of my creative life. Not only did she help me redesign my webpage, pick out the fonts for my book and implement the cover design, she has always been one of my biggest encouragers. She also makes gorgeous jewelry that you can see at Monilibella. In exchange for all this invaluable help and expertise, I offered to do a painting for her and so she asked for my take on this view at Vista Hills. The photo she gave me to work off of is below. Elena gave the finished piece to Adam for their first anniversary. Congrats Elena and Adam! One year has passed and so many more to come!
