Wendy + Justin | Nicholson Ranch | August 15

Wendy and Justin are such a sweet couple and an absolute dream to work with.  From the beginning simple and elegant was the name of the game and it was just that.  A smaller wedding with under 70 guests brought together by the love between Wendy and Justin (and great food of course!) made this wedding such a special day for this awesome couple.

The wedding was at Nicholson Ranch.  The ceremony took place on the pond side lawn (not only great for the ceremony, but perfect for a croquet game) and right next to beautiful vineyards and a small chapel on the hill which framed the ceremony for Wendy and Justin.  Being at a wonderful winery, they took full advantage and had a pre-ceremony wine tasting for their guests set up in Nicholson's barrel room.  Food was another important element to the couple and Feast Catering was up to the task from the amazing appetizers and three course Italian inspired dinner to a delicious dessert bar in which nothing was left behind.

Please enjoy the wonderful photos from Lori Paladino Photography who was truly able to capture the joy of the day!

A huge thank you to all of our vendors!

Lisa + Brian | Sonoma Mission Inn | July 24

Lisa and Brian fell in love with the idea of having their ceremony in one of California's missions.  While looking into where, Lisa fell in love with the Solano Mission of Sonoma.  When Brian was transferred to Beijing, Sonoma seemed like just the place for all of their family and friends from all around the US and the world to meet and celebrate their wedding.  Lisa and Brian are such an awesome couple and I am so lucky to have been part of their wedding process.  Planning from another country is not an easy thing to do, but Lisa did it with such ease.  They were able to combine pieces from their life together in the US with their new life in China which was such a great way to bring everything together.  Lisa had napkin rings made in Beijing as well as bringing back little goodie bags to send their guests back with a a sweet treat. 

The reception then followed at the beautiful Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn where the celebration continued late into the night.  Enjoy the wonderful photos from Arrowood Photography!

There is no better way to end a wonderful night than with a chicken and waffle station!  This was such a fun wedding with amazing people and a fantastic couple!
