Where do I even start with describing Danielle and Nick’s wedding at MOUNTAIN HOUSE ESTATE?!? I suppose the photos speak for themselves. As you can see this wedding was gorgeous, and laid-back, yet fun and romantic from start to finish!
Danielle and Nick both dressed at the venue, reggae and country music were playing in the background while Danielle and her bridesmaids got ready in the bridal loft. There were lots of laughs and drinks flowing! Danielle looked amazing in a beautiful gown from BLISS BRIDAL & BLACK TIE in Petaluma, CA. She accented her look with some fun rose gold flats. Nick and his groomsmen wore navy blue suits which really complemented the dusty rose pink dresses Danielle’s bridesmaids were wearing. Such a gorgeous group!
There was no first look for the bride and groom, they kept it classic with opting to see one another for the first time at the wedding aisle. However, Danielle did have a first look with her father! She walked down the stairs, tapped her father on the back and he turned around to see his beautiful daughter. There were lots of tears from dad, Danielle, her bridesmaids and mom, as well as a few from myself!!!
Nick and Danielle stated their vows at the gorgeous ceremony site which overlooked a scenic pond on the property. The ceremony was filled with sweet words officiated by the groom’s best man’s father. He added a lot of personal touches to the ceremony which created a lot of emotion, tears, laughs, and smiles! Guests threw pink rose petals up into the air as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife!
I was swooning over all the little details Danielle and Nick incorporated into every aspect of the day. Danielle chose accents of golds and pinks, as well as a vintage/antique vibe. The dinner tables were adorned with rose gold sequin table runners and gold flatware, but what was really fun was not one table had the same centerpiece decor. Each table had a unique center piece design incorporating antique vases and other pretty details! I was also amazed by the wedding cake and dessert tables. Again, Danielle used vintage/antique tables to display their wedding cake which was a “naked cake”. There were also chocolate cake pops, mini-pies, and cookies all supplied by FORGET ME NOT CAKES in Petaluma, CA
A delicious dinner was provided by FORKS AND FINGERS CAFE & CATERING. The trip-tip was amazing!! After some heartfelt toasts from the best man, maid and matron of honor, Nick and Danielle got into all the traditions of the bouquet toss, first dance, and cake cutting- then it was time to head out for sunset photos around the property. I could have taken a million photos, the light was amazing, and the couple as well! I don’t think those two take a bad photo.
The party continued on with DJ Daniel Lindsey of CRYSTAL CLEAR STUDIOS playing a great mix of music. Everyone was out dancing having an amazing time!
If I could plan another wedding for my husband and I, I would replicate every detail from the color scheme, to the decorations, to the dress: it was my dream wedding! The amount of love, admiration, and sweetness between Danielle and Nick was so fun to witness and capture. These are the types of weddings that make my heart sing and happy to do the job that I do!
Thank you to Danielle and Nick for allowing me to be a part of one of the most important days of your lives! Congrats to the Ramponis!! XOXO, Stacey
