Kathleen & Jorgen 

July 6

Sausalito, California


From the photographer: “Kathleen and Jorgen’s wedding was beautiful! The Headlands Center for the Arts didn’t disappoint, and the grounds provided amazing coastal backgrounds. The ceremony took place under a huge eucalyptus tree overlooking fog-covered hills. The reception was close-knit and food was done family style inside the Mess Hall. Kathleen was so detail oriented, and she wasn’t kidding when she told us that she ‘DIY’ed the bejezus’ out of this thing! We always love brides that have awesome Pinterest boards and impressive timelines on Google Drive. Kathleen and her sisters made all of the bridal bouquets, homemade jam, and other details on display.” — Christian Ericksen of e & b Photography


Vintage Chic, Vineyard Wedding in California

Ineca & Bobbie

July 7

Sebastopol, California 


Q & A with the Bride:

1.What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The vineyard view. The moment we stepped onto the property and caught a glimpse of the breathtaking view of the surrounding vineyards, we fell in love with it. We automatically pictured our guests during dinner – laughing and enjoying themselves, while overlooking the sun setting in the vineyards, sipping a glass of wine and chowing down on some comfort food in wine country.

2.Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Our guestbook: We asked guests to write down their advice, notes and wishes on a hanging tag. The tags were then hung in a rustic keepsake box that we now have displayed in our home.
2. Our DIY favors:We filled small kraft paper bags with caramel popcorn and stamped the front with a personalized ink stamp that read “Thanks for sharing in our sweet beginning.” What we loved most about this detail was the fun we had making them – an assembly line of three family generations, including Grandma!
3. Our cakes: We wanted something simple that looked like a real cake you wanted to take a bite out of (and they were delicious!). We displayed three small buttercream frosting cakes with a few fresh dahlias on various cake stands we found at a vintage shop.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

Our first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing.” It was a really fun and relaxed moment in the day. Every time I hear the song, it brings me right back.
