From the Groom…Candice and I met in Los Angeles, and we were friends for the better part of a year before we started dating. We laugh now looking back because all of our close friends knew we were meant for each other and we were the last to know. Soon after we started dating, we moved together to San Francisco. Both of us quickly fell in love with all of the nature that California had to offer – the mountains, beaches, vineyards, redwood forests and ocean-side bluffs. We had spent every Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe since we moved to SF and the memories that we had accumulated there together made Tahoe the perfect place to propose.

We knew we wanted to stay in California for the wedding, even though it meant a fairly long trip for our families. We quickly settled on a wine country wedding and our planner, Shannon Leahy (Shannon Leahy Events in SF), was crucial in making our vision become a reality. Our preference for venue was a private estate, and Shannon did an incredible job of finding some amazing and unique properties to choose from.

Our first priority was hiring a photographer. We took our time and met with a few really talented shooters before choosing KT Merry. In addition to KT having an amazing portfolio, we wanted to make sure our personalities matched well and we could be comfortable that she had all of the bases covered on the day of. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice in KT.

A couple months before the wedding, we set off with KT and her husband, Chad, to meet for our engagement shoot. Again, we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful scenery in our backyards. KT suggested Mendocino for their picturesque bluffs along the water and it turned out to be the perfect choice and we truly lucked out on the weather. The Pacific beaches can be volatile and unpredictable but the wind died down and the fog cleared out just in time for the sunset, which made for some really great shots.

Before we knew it, it was our wedding day. Candice had a vision for the design and SLE executed it perfectly. Seeing all of those months of planning come to life was pretty incredible and all of our vendors did a great job of taking away all of the stress of the day and allowing us to truly enjoy our time with our loved ones. Candice and I are constantly reliving the special moments from our wedding day, and we’re thankful for all of the talented people that made it so memorable.

Al Fresco Beltane Ranch Summer Wedding

These two are too cute for words. Example #1: the sweet groom tracked down the ranch he and his lady saw in a movie, and after a surprise weekend getaway there, they fell in love with it all; shortly after, it’s where they said “I do.” And then let’s just take one look at this precious pic? It’s one of many captured by Britt Rene from their summer celebration and we’re all in a sweeter mood after soaking up all their love -more in our Vault right this way!

From the Bride… Beltane Ranch has a special place in our hearts. After watching “The Five Year Engagement,” Jarrett researched ‘The Drunken Pig,’ the ranch in the movie where the couple hosted their engagement dinner. He found that it was a quaint bed and breakfast tucked back in the hills of the Sonoma Valley. One weekend Jarrett surprised me with a romantic weekend away and reserved a room at Beltane Ranch. Upon arriving, we both fell in love with the beautiful gardens and the two Clydesdale horses out front. Together we knew one day we would get married on the property.

From The Bride…Dien and I have visited wine country in California numerous times together and we thought it would be the perfect backdrop for our summer destination wedding. It’s beautiful and romantic, with tons of great spots to eat and drink!

We wanted our wedding to be simple and charming with rustic touches..and of course fun! And we wanted to be outdoors! With B.R. Cohn as our location, we were able to keep decor simple with pops of color and let the estate and vineyards shine. The property has so many picturesque expansive vineyard views and we were able to use different areas for each part our wedding celebration. Our ceremony was in their Oak Hill location under their grand oak trees, cocktail hour in their amphitheater that looks out to the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and the Sonoma mountain range and our reception in their intimate olive grove on the lawn.

It was such a memorable time and we are so happy our dogs, family and closest friends could all be a part of it!
