Sonoma Valley Wedding at Kunde Family Winery

The heart behind this wine country wedding? It’s simple, really. In the words of the Bride, “Every detail of the wedding took a cue from our relationship. Not overly traditional or noisy or busy, just a simple, classic celebration with our favorite people on earth.” That’s a vision we can wholeheartedly get behind, and when that day happens to be photographed by Sylvie Gil and filmed by Morocco Lee, you better believe we’ll happily welcome the entire gallery into The Vault.

From the Bride… Life is full of uncertainties, but when it comes to Justin and my relationship, there are a few things that have never wavered. Most notably, our love for one another and our love for wine. So when he surprised me at my doorstep on Christmas Eve with a proposal, we immediately went to work planning our dream wedding in Sonoma Valley.

Eighteen months later, we were saying ‘I do’ under two gorgeous, old California Oaks on top of Boot Hill at the Kunde Family Estate, surrounded by the valley, the vines, and the overwhelming love of our family and friends. Every detail of the wedding took a cue from our relationship. Not overly traditional or noisy or busy, just a simple, classic celebration with our favorite people on earth.

We knew our guests would be traveling in from all corners of the world, so we planned a weekend of events for everyone to get to know one another and experience some of our favorite spots in wine country. We loved that by the time the wedding rolled around, new friendships had formed and we could all just enjoy the moment together. Not to mention, a few glasses of wine!

Classic Springtime Dunaway Gardens Wedding

No one tells the story of a wedding day quite like Amy Arrington. She has this beautiful way of capturing even the simplest moments that take our breath away. And this al fresco beauty set in Georgia? Well, it’s one for the books. Planned by Chancey Charm with floral design by Amy Osaba, it’s a celebration inspired by an organic, Anthropologie-style aesthetic while playing to the cues of the springtime season. Watch moment after perfect moment unfold inside The Vault and film below.

From Amy Arrington Photography… Lisa & Brian were wed on May 2, 2015 in front of 110 guests in the charming amphitheater of Dunaway Gardens in Newnan, Georgia. Their early May wedding was inspired by the feeling of an al fresco dinner party with the whimsical decor of Anthropologie. With the help of event designer Marilisa Schachinger with Chancey Charm, the couple sought to blend traditional elements with an organic aesthetic and recruited Atlanta’s best vendors to bring their vision to life in one of Georgia’s most remarkable venues.

After the couple were wed by both of their fathers under a botanical chuppah, guests moved into the cocktail hour garden for hors d’oeuvres and a very southern game of corn hole. When it was time for dinner, everyone gathered under the reception tent for memorable toasts by the wedding party and delicious cuisine created by Sun In My Belly.

Once the sun had set and cake was cut and passed, the party moved into the party tent where guests danced the night away thanks to Emerald Empire Band. Brian even surprised his bride with a sweet serenade of “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green with the band. It was a sweet, personal and memorable day for all!
