Travelling from Canada and India, Taszia and Karan envisioned an intimate destination wedding in the Napa Valley. The guests milled around the beautiful grounds of Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch to the soothing sounds of guitar, sipping local wines before the ceremony. A sweet, calm, romantic event for close family and friends, many of the guests stayed in the area to experience a California vacation following the blissful wedding day.

This adventurous couple wanted their wedding to match their love for nature and hiking. Yosemite was the quintessential spot for a beautiful ceremony followed by time spent with family and friends. Jenni and Brian celebrated their wedding at The Majestic with harp music, a sand ceremony with their children, and personal vows. Over the next couple of days, acclaimed destination photographer Charleton Churchill hiked with the couple to capture epic shots. Thank you Jenni and Brian for including us in your Yosemite destination wedding!

Everything about this wedding was infused with pure love -- and, amazing food! Janet and Ryan are known by friends and family as being "foodies', and their love for awesome edibles made choosing to host their wedding at Ramekins an easy decision. Ramekins is a well-known culinary school, tucked away in the heart of Sonoma with a lovely spaces for ceremony and reception. Herbs adorned their place settings and florals. We loved every moment of their sweet ceremony, including a wine letterbox, and their story about Ryan not ordering food on their first date -- he promises that Janet will never go hungry again!

Villa De Nardi was the perfect venue for Janee and David's intimate wedding. They envisioned a garden wedding for their closest family and friends with guitar music and laughter!

Hailing from Utah, Morissa and Daniel planned their wedding from afar. What a pleasure for us to work with them on selecting the perfect words and songs. With the harp serenading the wedding party to "This is Love", and the recessional of "Time to Say Goodbye", this Vizcaya wedding was dreamy and elegant. Thank you to the amazing Utah photographer Kali Poulsson for capturing all of the beautiful details, including the sequined bridesmaids!
