Sonoma – Scribe Winery

There is a hip new winery in the Valley of the Moon and I was excited to find that rumor is once their gorgeous Hacienda has finished being renovated they will be hosting weddings! According to Scribe they are not taking weddings in 2013, however, I wanted to share these lovely photos that the fab Mary McHenry captured of a couple doing their engagement session on property – more gorg imagery here. And make sure to check back with them as I know this will be a wedding venue hot spot in years to come! I hope to do a site visit as soon as they are in action as well!

New Sonoma Hotel – Olea Hotel

Hi friends! I am headed up to wine country this weekend and am super excited to stay in a new little place called the Olea Hotel in Glen Ellen. It looks adorable. Our dinner destination is Olive and Vine and I have heard all sorts of amazing things about this restaurant and am excited for a late night dinner with my man. I can’t wait to share with you my reviews of both places! I will also be visiting Kunde Family Estate for a wedding so I will have all sorts of fun to report back on next week! Happy Weekend!

Carmel Valley – Holman Ranch – Gorgeous Teal and Yellow

I am so honored to be sharing this next wedding with you. Not only was I lucky enough to be a guest and enjoy this amazing féte, but it was incredible to be part of a celebration of love between my good friends Amy and Jeph. I adore them as a couple – they are so darn cute. They truly know what it means to love all aspects of life.

Amy is a serious details person and in planning their wedding she left nothing, NOTHING out. This wedding is a reflection of them and who they are as a couple, and that in itself was so darn cool. From the paper goods by Julie Kemp to the gorgeous flowers by Lila B. every last detail was perfect and beyond pretty. And you can’t really go wrong with Holman Ranch or Anna Kuperberg for that matter. Her stunning shots brought me right back to that day in May where I danced the night away and celebrated with friends and family. Take a peek!

Hans Fahden Wedding – Orange + Navy + Gray

Summer is headed our way and I am loving the bright pops of orange against navy and gray for a summer color palette from this wedding up in Calistoga at Hans Fahden. At first I thought – navy and gray in summer?? But we pulled in some cobalt blues and a gray with blue undertones and mixed it with lots of different shades of orange to create a cool contrast to the hot oranges. Added touches of white to soften the look. I am a bit in love! The photos are by the lovely Hannah Suh and florals by Julie Stevens Designs.

Kunde Winery Wedding – Sonoma – Mary McHenry Photography

Happy Monday and Happy June! I am thrilled to bring you another fantastical wine country wedding by the lovely Mary McHenry. She is so one of my all time favorite photographers for so many reasons but my top two are  1) she totally gets people and how to work with them and make them feel incredibly comfortable 2) she takes AMAZING photos! Kunde is a fantastic venue and one of the Sonoma wine country wedding venues that doesn’t make you start AFTER the winery closes – which is such a bonus when it comes to the overall timeline and set up for your wedding. I have an event there this September and I am so looking forward to it! Take a peek at all the loveliness Mary has sent our way, and then look for even more lovely on her blog!
