California Wedding by Tanja Lippert

I know we've been on California overload these days (and I swear, we have some amazing non-Cali weddings in the pipeline) but I just couldn't resist this one. And I've decided that orange bicycles just might be the absolute best accessories for a wedding, especially when the bride and groom met while on a bike ride! Tanja Lippert sent us this SO stinking cute wedding she shot in Healdsburg, California and we are ALL ABOUT IT. The colors are so bright and sunny and have us dreaming of summer days. Add to that an adorable couple that is so very happy and in love and the succulents that we can never get enough and you have the makings of the perfect little wedding.

Sarah and Andrew met in Tiburon, California. They were both on a bike ride with friends and Sarah asked Andrew about the local ferry schedule.  When the couple was engaged in late April they decided to plan a wedding for that October in California wine country. They knew it would be a challenge planning for the high season with such little time but it all came together. Sarah learned about their venue from a colleague at work. When she called about availability, it turned out a date had been made free the day before. They knew it was a sign. They looked at a few other places for reference but fell in love with the gardens and rustic barn at Healdsburg Country Gardens. All of their vendors were exceptional. They loved everything about the event, especially fantastic food and lots of dancing with all of their family and friends.
