Kings River Winery weddings are some of our favorites…and we’re not bias.

Ok maybe we’re a little bias because the KRW team is AMAZING to work with and their venue is so versatile and photogenic but we really have had some of the best weddings at this Fresno Wedding Venue! Plus our very own @MHP.Stephanie got married right here at KRW. Click HERE if you wanna see Stephanie’s wedding pictures.

But this blog isn’t about us, it’s about Michael & Angelina!! One of THE CUTEST MHP Wedding couples ever! Working with them was an absolute dream! Talk about a bride who knows what she wants!! And when you hear their how they met story shows just that.

We met at Sports Authority (RIP lol) in Monterey during college, but just in passing. Several years later, circa 2017, he moved to Fresno for work and strolled into the gym I was going to at the time. He didn’t say a word to me…LOL! But after I realized who he was, I messaged him on Instagram like the millennial I am. I invited him to hang out with my friends and I from the gym since he was new to town. The next day he invited me to his apartment for dinner. HE COOKED ME DINNER… I had never had anyone cook dinner for me. We got lost in conversation and we have been together ever since.

Angelina was so sweet and kind from our first interaction. And so easy to talk with. She put a lot of trust into her wedding vendors and their expertise and we appreciate that so much!

And a huge shoutout to all the vendors who made this gorgeous day possible for Angelina & Michael!
