Katie and Nate are an incredible couple who live in Oakland and fell in love with Cloverdale and Mountain House Estate to host their recent late spring wine country wedding.
The couple has known each other since high school and love to surround themselves with family and friends, they love to laugh, cook and throw amazing dinner parties. So obviously their wedding would be no exception.
Katie is an award-winning San Francisco Bay wedding photographer, and the couple assembled an incredible team for their wedding day.
Their March wedding invited family and friends to the Sonoma – Mendocino area for a wedding weekend that began with an intimate local welcome dinner. The couple made sure to share wonderful local Cloverdale and Geyserville accommodations, local wineries, hot springs, and geysers.
Katie and Nate each enjoyed time with their wedding parties in our two ready rooms, prior to their first look and some wedding party portraits.
They chose to host their wedding ceremony at Oak Tree Terrace exchanging wedding vows under a contemporary metal chuppah decorated with beautiful grasses and greenery. They ended their wedding ceremony with a traditional breaking of a glass.
Guests enjoyed a delicious cocktail reception on the lawn while Katie and Nate wandered the Mountain House Estate grounds for their wedding portraits.
The outdoor wedding reception on The Patio was decorated with terracotta vessels filled with grasses, brightly colored flowers and surrounded by amber glass votive candles. Everyone enjoyed a scrumptious buffet farm to table dinner.
Following dinner guests made their way into The Great Room for Katie and Nates first dance, a traditional hora and a night filled with laughter, dancing, and desserts.
Congratulations Katie and Nate, we wish you love, laughter and happily ever after.
Thank you to their incredible wedding professionals who brought their dream wedding to life.
