From Alison Events:
Clara and Charles celebrated their big day in October at a private estate in Healdsburg, California. They swapped wedding vows on a hill overlooking Sonoma’s colorful fall foliage, under a Zephyr tent decorated with multi-hued paper garlands. Guests relaxed on a mix of bean bags, rustic benches and cafe chairs, sharing in laughter and happiness as Clara and Charles made things official.
Following the ceremony, guests headed down the hill to enjoy a three course meal prepared by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering. The meal was served on long wooden farm tables, with wild red and orange flowers placed down the center designed by AE favorite, Ariella Chezar. The pool at the estate was covered with a floor and carpeting to allow for room for additional seating and dancing.
The entire night was magical, but the best part was probably the dance party that ensued post-dinner. DJ Blue from NYC really lit the dance floor up and people danced like mad, late into the night. Photographer Ben Chrisman set up a self-portrait station to capture some wacky moments, that truly reflected the energy of the whole weekend.
