From the Bride… Brent and I share a passion for amazing food and wine; in our five years of dating, we’ve taken numerous trips to wine regions up and down California. It seemed a perfect fit to invite our family and friends to experience something that we had enjoyed over and over throughout our relationship. We had visited Healdsburg the year before the wedding, not surprisingly on the tail end of our engagement trip! One afternoon while sitting high on a ridge, we looked at each other, the beauty of the setting, and knew that we had honed in on the place for our celebration; it only took one trip to their property to know that we found the perfect place for our nuptials. Copain had been amongst our favorite wine producers for some time, they were gracious to host our wedding, and their coordinator was simply awesome.

We decided from the beginning what was important to us; a heartfelt ceremony with our close friends and family, amazing food, and a lot of dancing. Brent’s childhood friend Adam delivered a ceremony that, along with our guests I’m sure, we’ll remember fondly for years to come. The winery at Copain is absolutely stunning, and the views don’t really need much competition. With that in mind, we kept the décor and the color palette simple. White flowers in milk glass vases that my girlfriends and I collected, neutral linens (runners handmade by my mother-in-law), and little else. You can see in our pictures that guests spent the night lounging in the Adirondack chairs, mesmerized by the scene.

In the end, we both could not be happier with the celebration. The wines were amazing, the food was delicious, and the company was even better. We kept the guest list small and intimate, not an easy feat, but we are happy with the way it turned out. By the end of the weekend, everyone seemed to know each other and it felt like our families all grew together. Our advice would be to know what is important to you, spend your time and energy on only those things, and don’t stress the rest. When else will you have the most important people in your life, in one place, at one time? At the end of the day, you’re married to your best friend, what’s better than that?

1920s Inspired Healdsburg Wedding

There are some weddings that grace the pages of SMP that stick with me forever, and after pouring through all these breathtaking images from Scott Andrew Studio it’s safe to say this 1920′s inspired beauty will be one of them. And although I wish I could point to one thing that makes it perfect, I’m pretty sure it’s the combination of lovely that is really make my heart flutter this afternoon. See all the pretty whipped up by Enjoy Events Co. right here.

From Enjoy Events Co. …Lindsay and Josh approached us with the 1920′s concept from the get go. Lindsay had that artistic, spunky spirit so we knew we were a match made in heaven. Although unplanned, the Great Gatsby movie was due out in theaters that very month – and their guests were beyond excited. While we didn’t want to replicate an already hyped up concept – we dug a little deeper to find out what made Lindsay and Josh really tick. What items did they love in their home? What did they love to do? Lindsay, an incredible artist herself, didn’t have to do much explaining – her love for the natural world and the artifacts around her were the perfect launching point for the combined concept…”Great Gatsby meets natural curiosity.” And, so enter the wedding (and darling couple) that started our wedding season off with a bang!

Their wedding was held in picturesque Healdsburg, California on the family’s private home. Construction began on the property months prior creating the perfect canvas for such an event. A straight vertical hill was transformed into a stunning ceremony location and a once barren meadow created the platform for the breathtaking reception tent. It was there that guests would feast on a divine meal from Sage Catering, drink specialty cocktails from the fellas of Pharmacie LA, and dance the night away to a 6-piece band and crooner dressed in a white tux.

Lindsay and Josh pulled up to their reception in an authentic 1927 Stutz Limousine where tables, adorned in elegant wild florals designed by Shotgun Floral Studio, overlooked the exquisite view that is Wine Country. Guests were dressed to the nines and Lindsay received oo’s and aww’s from the crowd with her stunning Jenny Packham wedding dress. Eclectic finds from Found Vintage Rentals, curious elements from the masters of apothecary and taxonomy, Paxton Gate, along with flatware and glassware from Casa de Perrin transformed the space and tied in some of that 1920’s flavor. The evening came to a close with quite an epic finale – as everyone danced under a shower of confetti, the sky lit up with a surprise fireworks show that left the couple and all their guests speechless.

Sonoma Wine Country Portraits by The McCartneys

I think everyone should do a ‘love’ shoot just to celebrate, well, love! Of course, it’s much easier to do when you have an amazing photog in your family like The McCartneys. Lucky for Stevi & Charles, they have a handful of gorgeous moments to remember from their Sonoma trip and lucky us, we’ve got the whole gallery to view as many times we please.


From The McCarneysWe’re simply giddy to share with you a session that we hold extra close to our hearts. Not just because we LOVE Sonoma and all things wine country, but also because the subjects of this session are family!!

We just escaped to Healdsburg, CA with family and while we were there, we had the chance to photograph Stevi & her boyfriend Charles. Stevi is Butch’s sister! It’s no secret that we LOVE everything California and everything wine-related; how can you not?! Put them together along with our favorite couple, great company, dreamy romantic light, and a house in the middle of a vineyard, and were head over heels! One evening, we took a break from vacationing to weave through vineyards and explore beautiful hillsides at sunset with Stevi & Charles. How adorable are they together!! We hope this session brings a smile to your face, while also making you want to book a trip to visit Sonoma.
