Now for a dip in the Jacuzzi...Jacuzzi Family Vineyards that is!

What a rich and luscious palette for this late summer wedding in Sonoma. The couple chose Jacuzzi Family Vineyards for their beautiful destination wedding.

The bride carried an array of burgundy calla lilies, Merlot dahlias, burgundy orchids and velvety red roses, accented with berries and monkey tail.

The Bridesmaids bouquets mimicked the Bride's, but had the addition of champagne roses to pop off the backdrop of their burgundy dresses.

Another great shot of the happy bride.

The boutonnieres matched what the girls carried.

The entry table greeted guests with a wish tree and name cards among champagne petals.

The couple was married in the stunning barrel room amidst the olive trees and candles.

Full blooming red roses were submerged among twisted vines inside the tall centerpiece vases.

The tall centerpieces looked beautiful in the courtyard setting.

Waiting for the guests to come out of the Barrel Room.

The cake was a work of art by Fleur de Lisa Cakes.

Thank you to Visalli Photography for the wonderful professional images.
Thank you to for expert coordination.

The courtyard is very romantic at night.

Stealing a quiet moment alone by the light of the full moon.

Congratulations Rachel and John!

I Heart Weddings!

When working on weddings, symbols of love can be found everywhere.

This gorgeous bridal bouquet has show stopping peonies, roses and freesia. The Stems were wrapped in a beautiful bridal handkerchief.

Texture was added in with rabbits foot, monkey tail and hypericum berries.

The Bridesmaid's bouquets added in a touch of dark purple to play off the chocolate brown accents. Each girl had a necklace with their initial attached to the wrapped handle. A cute gift from the bride.

The boutonnieres and corsages had plenty of interest and texture.

Rustic bottles and jars were used throughout the venue and added to the charm.

Fans and a card cage greeted the guests as they entered the ceremony area at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma.

Roses and ornamental grasses graced the sides of the chairs.

Large urns were filled with free flowing, organic arrangements. These were later moved into the barn to decorate the lounge area.

Various mason jars, big and small were clustered together on the guest tables. No two were alike.

Each table had a short, medium and tall jar.

The completed look with the table numbers.
