Spring and summer like to believe that they’re the only seasons fit for a garden wedding. Well, they shouldn’t gloat just yet because fall is about to give them a run for their money. There is no need to shut the garden gates at the first falling leaf and this Sonoma County wedding by Silvana Difranco is the picture perfect proof. It is deliciously draped in some of the most fantastic fall hues I’ve ever seen like tangerine, peach and pumpkin and bursting with sweet, rustic details. Check out the full gallery to see every last goodie!
David Noble and Beaux Jensen met on their first day of graduate school at the University of Southern California in the Master of Social Work Program. After a year and a half, they began dating while working in class together and were engaged a year later. The couple’s vision for the wedding was to hold the ceremony and reception at the Noble Family Vineyard in Knights Valley, CA, complete with sloping verdant lawns, picturesque flower beds, 100 year-old farmhouse, and over ten acres of vineyards.
From the flowering handmade arbor to the homemade candy favors to David’s band performing after dinner, the wedding was reminiscent of a sophisticated family picnic. Guests enjoyed a barbeque dinner followed by delicious cupcakes, and activities such as bocce ball, dancing, and wandering through the beautiful property lit by candles and tiki torches. The bride and groom enjoyed a short Calistoga honeymoon, and plan on travelling to New Zealand later in the year.
