The Lodge at Sonoma

The Lodge at Sonoma is a beautiful resort and spa nestled in Sonoma between all the beautiful wineries that also hosts plenty of weddings every year. Luisa and Brian held their wedding ceremony and reception at this gorgeous venue and even though its normally quite warm this time of year there, the weather was quite interesting. It stayed dry and was a little cooler than normal, which made it really comfortable for an outdoor reception and gave us some pretty clouds around sunset.

The wedding of Nancy and Tim took place at the Westin Verasa Napa Valley Hotel. The food was catered by La Toque Restaurant and chef Ken Frank and it was delicious!

Brenda and Andrew Wedding

3677079047 752f541ae4 o Brenda and Andrew Wedding

It was a beautiful hot and sunny day in Glen Ellen, CA at the lovely Beltane Ranch where Brenda and Andrew’s wedding took place. The outdoor setting was perfect and the bride’s gown was stunning. There was no better place to be than at a gorgous outdoor wedding in Sonoma valley with good company, good food, great wine, and dancing the night away to Michael Jackson songs. Thanks to Fu of F.C.Wong Photography Studios for the opportunity to second shoot for him.
