My DH and I planned a semi-DW in Sonoma to take place Christmas weekend. Our wedding was December 23, 2017 and we kept our guest list small at 40 guests. I enjoyed the planning process so much that I'm still here to help other couples plan their beautiful wedding. I'm one of the "Rockstars" of the community which means that I'm here for you to answer any questions you may have regarding the wedding planning process. Best wishes on your wedding!

Anyone having a small wedding? My Fiance’ and I will have less than 60 people attending. I’ve found that people are not as interested in our ceremony due to how small and quaint it will be.
