From the vendor team…Inspired by the natural beauty of Tuscany, Italy, Maria of Anthem Photography and Jade Rose of Lady Evelyn collaborated with local Italian vendors to showcase all that Italy has to offer. Homegrown florals, local fruits and cheeses, a custom lace gown, manicured garden and an Italian couple madly in love, the perfect recipe for beautiful images. Maria’s photos capture the emotion that is Italy, classic and romantic.

I’ve become pretty convinced that Sonoma is the land where weddings have an extra special sparkle and this one right here reinforces that belief even more. Toss in the talents of Pineapple Planet and Vanda Floral Design and we have an absolute gem on our hands. Jihan Cerda captured every stunning moment of this elegant affair and you can bet that I’ll be losing myself in these photos for the greater part of today.

From Pineapple Planet… Patti & Evan’s sweet and romantic wedding was held at Beltane Ranch in Sonoma. A gorgeous August weekend celebration was joined by guests from Thailand, Southern California and the Bay Area. Patti’s name in Thai translates to Honey Bee so accents of bees were used in the design as well as honey jar favors. Patti and Evan were gracious and thoughtful throughout the entire planning process. Their talented and professional team of partners did an amazing job hosting 60 guests at this breathtaking ranch.

Somewhere in between the first and last image of this darling gallery from Brooke Boling, lives a cozy, happy place that I want to live for hours on end. Maybe it’s the charming red-wheeled wagon (that I want to curl up in) or the glowing reception thanks to Alice Hendry and Bright Event Production or the welcoming place settings prettied up by BBJ Linens and Lauren Marie Atkinson Designs. Thankfully I don’t have to pick a favorite moment, because they’re all sitting pretty right here.
From Brooke Boling…It was the perfect Fall Day designed with a true Southern spirit. On Sunday, October 5th 2014, Allison Keaton married Dale Binkley in a beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown. The ceremony looked just like a beautiful southern backdrop. The trees, the soft wind, the bridemaids in long green dresses. Allison is a trained chef and the menu for the guests was absolutely incredible. Pumpkin soup served in tiny pumpkins. Charcuterie Boards with an assortment of locally cured meats and house made pates. Passed edible tea cones with curried chicken salad, sweet potato cake with goat cheese and caramelized bacon, wild rice orzo in a wonton crisp. They also had a bourbon and cigar bar for the guys. The details were as perfect as perfect can be.
