Sonoma weddings always seem to dance on the side of lovely. But this one. Well, this one is both lovely and innately personal – handcrafted by California’s finest of course. Photographed by Kate Webber with design by A Savvy Event and florals by Nancy Liu Chin – this celebration is exactly what we preach on SMP. Make it beautiful, make it personal.

From the bride…We wanted to have a destination wedding so that we could extend the wedding celebrations and enjoy a full weekend of wedding festivities with our family and closest friends. Sonoma, California was a natural choice as Craig and I bonded over our mutual love and passion for great food and wine. We envisioned our wedding weekend filled with delicious meals and great local wines in a beautiful setting where everyone truly felt like a part of the celebration.

Craig and I are both foodies and much of our planning focused on the food and wine. Our inspiration was “French country” – an homage to Paris where we were engaged – and we worked with an amazing team of vendors who helped bring our culinary vision to life!

This was a foodie wedding with a twist –I have celiac disease and cannot eat gluten, and both Craig and I are lactose intolerant; so it was important to us that our menu was inclusive of all dietary restrictions. We designed a menu that was gluten and dairy-free – including our wedding cake buffet! It was our big fat, gluten-free, dairy-free dream wedding. “Magical” was the word so many of our guests used to describe the weekend – and it was just that; we had our perfect ending.
