Calistoga Destination Wedding = Sandra + Jeremy

By far, one of our most memorable weddings from 2013 was Sandra and Jeremy's destination ceremony in Calistoga.  They rented a beautiful estate, tucked away atop a sunny vineyard.
The bride designed her dress using a vintage dress from ReVamp.  Exquisite!

  Reverend Jennifer had the honor of officiating their beautiful wedding. The couple's ceremony included a modern Chinese tea ceremony for the parents.  Everyone brought up pretty flowers into a bowl for the couple.


Lovely flowers were designed by Jessica Bender of Cultivate Moonflowers.  


The couple's wedding was captured by the talented Rylee Hitchner and featured recently at Wedding Sparrow online.



Congratulations to an amazing couple...soon to be parents, too!

Magical Sonoma Wedding

Rebecca and Mason are from Southern California. They chose to celebrate their marriage with a destination wedding at the majestic Kunde Family Winery for their wedding day. 




Guests were driven up to the top of the pretty hillside at the vineyard for the ceremony. The bride appeared from the vines with her father, like magic!


Reverend Jennifer enjoyed hearing about how the couple met from Rebecca's father while they waited.  She loved officiating this beautiful ceremony in Kenwood!

Reverend Jessica Bender is one our fabulous officiants who we work with.  She shares her positive energy, sublime grace, and fabulous smile with every ceremony!
Rev. Bender had the pleasure of officiating Jennifer and Khan's wedding at the magical Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, tucked away up on a hillside in the lovely Napa Valley.




The couple chose to include a rose exchange and a wine ritual during their ceremony. Music was provided by a piano and bass player, keeping the ceremony upbeat and happy!
