Take a gorgeous Healdsburg setting like Barndiva and add in a stunning modern aesthetic and one of the prettiest Monique Lhuillier gowns that you’ll ever lay your eyes upon and the results are simply stunning. Think a breathtaking al fresco ceremony meets crazy cool paper goods and lovely sage-hued everything. See it all captured by The Edges Wedding Photography in the full gallery.
From the Beautiful Bride… Healdsburg was the only place we wanted to get married – and the entire experience did not disappoint. After a festive and unique rehearsal dinner at SHED, our wedding day began with clouds and showers (during a three year California drought and the normally reliable month of October!), but the clouds parted miraculously just before the wedding, and I walked down the aisle in glowing sunshine.
The team of vendors helped to create a day that was elegant, yet understated, intensely special and “very us.” I truly felt that we treated our guests, nearly all of whom had traveled for many miles (I’m from Boston, my husband is from Chicago), to a celebration experience very much in our essence, enhanced by Healdsburg’s beauty and spirit.
In planning the day, I cared most about ensuring my guests were taken care of and treated to a memorable occasion in a beautiful, relaxed environment, and Barndiva did not disappoint (Luca, Liberty, and team were especially heroic during the drama of the stormy weather). The cake, papery, dinner menu, and top-notch service were my top priorities for the wedding (I wanted little details to make a difference) and I was tremendously pleased with how everything turned out.
