From the first time we met Chelsea and Ryan, it was easy to see how in love they are and how much they love to laugh. The couple met in the San Francisco Bay Area, but recently moved to Dallas, Texas. Sonoma Wine Country has always held a special place in their hearts. So, they were very clear that they wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony and to have both the wedding ceremony and reception in one location. More importantly, they wanted a large space so they could boogie on the dance floor. And when they toured our venue, it was love at first sight.

The Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was held on the front lawn. Surrounded by trees and underneath a rustic wooden arch swagged in white fabric and accented with greenery, the couple professed their love. We love the look on Ryan’s face as he saw Chelsea for the first time as she crossed the lawn with her father. Following the wedding ceremony, officiated by Ryan’s grandfather, the couple laughed and joked as they explored the property taking wedding photos. Chelsea and Ryan’s dinner was casual, a large taco bar with all the toppings, and a few side dishes were beautifully arranged in the Great Room.

Outside on the patio, tables were draped in white linen with greenery and pillar candles in hurricane globes. The couple made their grand entrance, laughed and joked while they enjoyed the delicious dinner before heading into the Great Room to dance the night away.

Chelsea and Ryan had an incredible night with family and friends that included a much-anticipated conga line. Everyone’s sweet tooth was satisfied with an intimate wedding cake surrounded by a dessert bar that included mini cupcakes and assorted fresh baked cookies. Congratulations, Chelsea and Ryan! We love seeing how much in love you are and how much fun you have together. – John & Lane
