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. Days like that make you really appreciate our lovely little Northern California region. So many delightful photos in this sneak peek, I just couldn’t resist! Enjoy!

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo

Whoot! It’s Friday and boy do I have a lovely wedding to show you! Shelley and Chris – a sparky yet sweet, super intelligent yet funny, grand’ole time of a couple. We had a blast during their engagement session in North Beach, view here. So I knew their wedding would be nothing short of greatness. Equal parts wine country rustic and charmingly modern, we played in the amazing rose gardens of property, vogued it out at a sweet white barn down the road, stuffed our faces and danced until the stars went to bed. They even had a poetry booth and a sparkler exit! As always, mega thanks to my right-hand photo lady Kara. Congratulations you two!! Enjoy the sneak!
