Like the little black dresses the lovely bridesmaids have donned, this Sonoma Valley wedding is chic and classic. In my humble opinion, you definitely can not go wrong with a summer vineyard wedding in California. It’s the recipe for perfection. And when you add Fleurs de France‘s fabulous flora to the mix, well then, the whole affair is promised to reach beyond perfect. All the details, captured by Andrew Weeks Photography, are like the sweet pearl necklace adorning that stunning LBD. Visit the gallery for more of this California wedding!
Greg and Elise met during their senior year of college at Santa Clara University. Despite attending a small college and sharing many friends, their paths had never crossed. While getting to know each other over drinks at the local college bar, they discovered their shared passions for wine and the San Francisco Giants.
After many trips to his family home in Sonoma, Greg surprised Elise with a proposal in the middle of the vineyards. While she was taking pictures of the beautiful surroundings, Greg dropped to one knee and waited for her to turn around… he surprised her with a very romantic proposal and they began planning a wine country wedding right away.
The wedding day was a perfect celebration of family and friends… and was made all the more special because the Giants won the World Series in the days leading up to the wedding!
