Wowza me! I am so excited to show you Mary and Chris’s epic wedding day in wine country! Enjoy Events Co. absolutely nailed it with ALL the incredible wedding day details even the day-of paper goods! Those ladies never disappoint. The temps were pleasant, their smiles to each other were sweet and the mood was just right. These two are genuinely thoughtful and so very sweet to my heart. Game for anything and creatively energized, I knew with the ideas (watercolor place cards , homemade pickle favors, vintage lawn games and more!) and our rockstar wedding vendor team that we’d bring down the house at Kunde Winery. And we did just that. Enough writing, you have A LOT of sneak peek images to gawk at!! It was so hard to choose which ones to show you! Huge thanks to my right-hand photo lady for the day, Silvana :) Happy Sneak Peeking!

A warm breeze, glowing California sun and the peaceful nature of the ranch’s animals…seriously, life could not get better. Meghan and Geoff with their closest 16 guests laughed, loved and blissfully indulged in each other’s company to celebrate the lovebirds. Words cannot describe how much I love Beltane Ranch…and Beltane Ranch weddings. It’s a magical place. I loved listening to the out-of-town guests ooo and ahh over our breathtaking scenery.
