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.

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.
