This next Hopland celebration is what we like to call B-A-N-A-N-A-S beautiful (it's just that good). Marrying unreal views of the valley and vineyards, it's a hillside ceremony that is beauteous beyond measure (and we're not just talking about that Pronovias gown)! So get that Pinterest board ready for a dose of Danielle Poff Photography goodness because we've got it all waiting in THE VAULT!

From The Bride...When Brian and I saw our wedding venue for the first time-- the open air barn, trees hanging with Spanish moss and unreal views of the valley and vineyards-- we knew we had to be married here. On top of the hill, so secluded and serene, it felt like the perfect place to bring family and friends away from the rest of the world to have an intimate gathering. The space really shows off the beauty of Northern California, which was great to show our guests who were traveling so far to the tiny town of Hopland to celebrate with us.

Our style at home is really a mix of vintage and modern, so naturally we knew those elements would be blended in our wedding style choices; we scoured Alameda's Antique Faire and flea markets for vintage bottles and copper for our tables, and used vintage metal frames for the numbers, but kept almost everything else simple, white, and fresh. We wanted wood tables rather than linen covered ones, and floral arrangements composed of leafy greens rather than heavily packed flowers to keep it loose and informal. Honestly, the setting was so gorgeous, we wanted to the details to be really natural and neutral (rather than rustic), and just to get out of the way for people to enjoy.

It was a priority to us to create a space for our guests to feel lost in a moment, relaxed, and to enjoy great food, wine and music. We had more than a good time in the run up before the wedding, tasting different wines with the family to make our final selection! When I saw the aisle leading to a beautiful, hazy panoramic view, our smiling guests, and Brian under the arbor, I couldn't have been a happier bride!
