Winery weddings tend to make us wedding-addicts weak at the knees. The beauty of mother nature, the classic outdoor elegance, and incredible food and wine – it’s what great wine country pretty much guarantees for a wedding. So we totally understand why this cute couple chose the beautiful Sonoma Valley in California for their wedding destination. With world famous wineries and breathtaking views every way you turn, it’s a sure-fire setting for a casually elegant affair such as this. And we couldn’t possibly leave without mentioning the bridesmaids in their pretty sage green dresses, the understated vintage details all beautifully captured by T.J. Salsman Photography, and of course the divine sunset…. on don’t get me started on THAT sunset!
Photography T.J. shares: Missy and KC met freshman year at Stanford six years ago. The New Jersey natives always loved California and the Sonoma wine country in particular and always knew they would plan a destination wedding for family and friends. “Most of them had never been to the west coast, so it was a chance to show them how beautiful it is out here,” said Missy. Missy and KC fell in love with BR Cohn Winery because of the unique setting and the many unique areas for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. All areas were unique and beautiful, providing beautiful experiences for their guests. According to Missy, ” I think the setting really inspired the look and feel of the wedding; we liked the idea of having a kind of vintage vineyard feel, which is why we chose the jars to hold the centerpieces, our caterer suggested using the wine barrels as tables for the cocktail hour, and I always knew I wanted a lace dress, which all worked together to create a vintage look.”
