Hailing from Texas, Courtney and James wanted a destination wedding that their close friends and family would remember! The couple and their entourage spent time enjoying Napa Valley for days before and after the wedding, including a morning of croquet at Meadowood. The couple shared some of the sweetest personal vows that we have ever heard! What a pleasure to a part of such a joyful, fabulous event.

Kate and Mat were swept away from San Francisco into a delightful celebration at Park Winters with close family and friends. Pops of dreamy reds and blues adorned the day along with creamy white and silvery greens.
Hailing from England and Australia, the couple met at a conference in Melbourne. Kate was hosting a discussion on the future of journalism. Mat was heckling from the crowd and Kate wondered who this wrong, but very cute man was. They were friends for over a year before Mat invited Kate to dinner. Bonding over businesses and similar passions, they eventually ended up in the Bay Area. Planning their wedding at serene Park Winters was a wonderful break from their normal, busy lives.
Sharing the couple's story was a highlight of their ceremony. Blessings to Kate and Mat on their businesses and their marriage! --Rev. Jennifer Tan

Jaime and Arthur met overseas in medical school. In-between traveling, school, and beginning jobs, they were able to plan a most joyful wedding in Sacramento. As is evidenced by the incredible amount of dancing and laughter, the couple spent the evening with family and friends, enjoying every second of their wedding celebration.
Rev. Tim Godby assisted the couple with partaking in a beautiful wine ritual which represented the bitterness and sweetness of life. With a stomping on the glass and a hearty "mazel tov!", the couple began their married life surrounded by cheers and love!
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!
