Heather and Shawn wanted a fairytale wine country destination wedding and they got it! Stryker Sonoma is the perfect location for a destination wedding in wine country. Family and guests were mostly coming from Texas where Heather and Shawn reside and having the wedding all in one location certainly helps keep it easy for your guests! Also, if you want to wow your guests with wine country views a little off the beaten track, this is it! Coming from Texas in the middle of the summer, I'm sure the perfect 80-something degree weather was welcome too!
Heather is in the fashion industry and absolutely shined in her custom made David Peck gown. She had her designer also design and make dresses for the VIP ladies of the group. I loved the swooshing skirts and various shades of pink and purple. She also had her little dream team of stylists on hand to prep her with hair and makeup as well as to be on our little photo shoots to make sure she looked picture perfect. She was all hollywood glamour with that wavy blonde hair and when she came out in her stunning veil, I swear people gasped. Certainly her groom was awestruck and beaming from ear to ear.
The farm tables with family-style meal by Alex's Catering and florals by Garden Party added to that perfect warm summer evening wine country feel and guests danced into the night to live music by Larry Lynch & The Mob under the full moon and stars. This wedding will last in the memories of all involved. On top of it, Heather and Shawn both waited a long time to meet the perfect match and they celebrated in a once-in-a-lifetime way and seemed to have the time of their lives!
