You Mean The World To Me

Today’s real wedding is seriously swoon-worthy. Colleen and Daniel tied the knot at the beyond-beautiful Villa Montbella in Sonoma, overlooking sunny San Francisco. 

 

Everything from Colleen’s effortlessly elegant style, the olive branch theme (symbolising peace), the delicate big-day details and the romantic Californian light was captured perfectly by the talented one love photography team.

 

The cute-as-can-be flower girls wore dainty flower crowns just as the old song goes: “If you’re going to San Francisco, Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

Keana says:

“There’s something about this wedding that makes us want to pull up a seat at the dinner table and swoon. The candlelight, the wine, the romance – we are in love with this incredibly intimate wedding at an estate in Sonoma that looks like it’s straight from Tuscany.”

Colleen says:

“I incorporated olive branches in everything – my bouquet, the men’s boutonnieres, the table arrangements, and specially created bracelets that we all wore in memory of my father. I complimented these details with rustic elements such as burlap welcome bags and TOMS shoes for the boys. Other details included a herb table of lavender, rosemary, rose petals and basil where guests filled paper cones to toss at us at the end of the ceremony.”

“It poured rain all day the day of our wedding, the first time it rained in Sonoma in six months! Then out of nowhere the clouds parted, the sun came out and we had picture perfect weather for our ceremony and reception. It’s truly a highlight of our day I will never forget!”

“It was really important to both of us that our wedding not only represent us as a couple, but also represent our two amazing families coming together as one. We chose a venue that could host both our immediate families for a long weekend and got married on the property with Daniel’s dad as our officiant. My oldest brother walked me down the aisle and our seven nieces and nephews (ages two years old – seven years old) were our ‘bridal party’. We were surrounded by nothing but love the entire weekend.”

What a dreamy destination wedding location. It’s like a piece of the Italian Riviera in the heart of the California wine country. Yes please!
