Italian stone venue Sonoma

Alyssa & Tyler’s wedding celebration at the Sonoma Golf Club was a day to remember.

With such a beautiful setting in Sonoma California the two had a wine country wedding day of their dreams in an all inclusive venue. The lush ivy vines that laced the walls and the Spanish Colonial Style architecture lended itself to an old-world-charm with a luxurious feel. The Oak trees that surrounded the property captured the light beautifully and all around us were photographic opportunities to capture the couple in all kinds of delicious light. 

Both the bride and groom spent the morning with their wedding party getting ready at the Fairmont in Sonoma. We prepared detail shots of rings, wedding invitations, dress and shoes to be documented for their gorgeous gallery. The bride doted over her beautiful gown in moody light while her bridesmaids stood watching and helped prep the beautiful bride to get ready.

The styling and planning of the wedding was executed to perfection by Maryssa Souza of Seven Oh Seven Events. The esthetic of the wedding was very classic and timeless. Colors were very neutral. The bridesmaids dresses were floor length black gowns and the groomsmen were in black and white tuxedos. The floral design palette was in shades of white, cream, with touches of greenery, and pale pink. The couple wanted lots of candles and lots of greenery not to distract from the natural beauty that surrounded the property.

The ceremony was held on the main lawn witnessed by friends and family watching with tearful eyes as the couple exchanged their vows and rings then pronounced husband and wife by their officiant. 

Photographing Alyssa and Tyler was sensational. Alyssa had a beautiful infectious laugh that made us all laugh with her. Tyler complimented her throughout the day and doted over her exuding an old school gentleman like quality.

The reception coupled with dinner and dancing was held in the Kenwood ballroom overlooking the rolling green hills of the golf course. After being announced in Alyssa and Tyler made their way to the dance floor for their first dance followed by dinner and speeches. The highlight of the evening was when the couple were thrown in the air during their traditional Hora dance.

How they met…

Alyssa and Tyler were engaged while celebrating their 7 year anniversary at a gorgeous winery called Frogs Leap. The couple had never been to that particular winery before and when they arrived they both looked around and remarked how beautiful the property was. Tyler suggested they take a walk around the property before going to the tasting room. The two strolled a narrow path when Tyler decided to pop the question and got down on one knee. Alyssa, in a state of shock and excitement responded with “wait is this real?”.
He responded with a “yes this is very real”. Tyler had received the consent of Alyssa’s father and presented her with a gorgeous diamond ring. The two were in a state of elated emotion and tears of joy filled Alyssa’s eyes. The couple spent the rest of the weekend wine tasting and enjoying wine country celebrating their new engagement.
