Karin & Vincent | Wedding | Durell Vineyard | Sonoma, CA

He waited 56 year to find his bride. She survived cancer, raised two great kids on her own, and then she fell in love in Sonoma.  So it was only fitting they were married at Durell Vineyard in the wine-country where their love blossomed.  From the gorgous details to the tastiest bites it was the perfect wine-country wedding!  Not only was the dinner grown by local producers, everyone was drinking local too.  The Rose and Pinot Noir were grown in the same vineyard at Durell where the dinner was held.  Take a look at their wedding below.  Congratulations Karin and Vincent!

Cheryl & Jen | Wedding | Gloria Ferrer Winery & Nicks Cove Restaurant | Sonoma & Marshall, CA

Cheryl and Jen were married in a private​ ceremony at Gloria Ferrer Winery in the heart of Sonoma’s Wine Country.  In attendance were two close friends, one of whom performed the ceremony, his wife, and me.  It was such a pleasure to be part of Cheryl & Jen’s wedding. It reminded me of my nuptials last September, which involved only my wife and I. There is something magical and profound about joining lives together with only your love by your side. Indeed, the love and connection Chery & Jen share was palpable. I feel honored to have been one of their witnesses, both with my camera, and with my signature on the marriage license.  A reception followed at Nick’s Cove on Tamales Bay. It was an amazing feast, paired with perfect Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Napa and Sonoma wineries.  Congratulations Jen and Cheryl!

Darby & Colin | Wedding | Jacuzzi Family Vineyards and Cline Villa | Sonoma, CA

The first time I ever visited Jacuzzi Winery I said to myself “this is a perfect place for a wedding!”  The location is gorgeous, the light is amazing and their wines are even better.  Darby and Colin fell in love with the venue as well on trips to Sonoma from their home in Seattle.  Friend and family flew in from all over the country to help celebrate their destination wedding.  Darby and Colin are such down to earth people and so much fun to work with.   They also have some really funny friends, I can’t remember laughing that hard during toasts in a long time.  The wedding day started with the ladies getting ready at the Cline Villa.  After an emotional first look we headed over to Jacuzzi Winery for the ceremony and reception.  An al fresco dinner under twinkling lights in the courtyard, was followed by an amazing party in the barrel room.  Does it get any better than that?  
Take a look at my favorite moments from their day below.  Congratulations Darby and Colin!
