- About This Post
Wow. What an amazing venue Jerissa and Kyle chose for their destination – Gloria Ferrer Wine Caves and Vineyards is set up on a hill in Sonoma, California with vast, panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards and countryside. This was my first wedding at Gloria Ferrer, and I truly can’t wait to come back. I was warned multiple times that the “caves” are dark and the lighting is terrible, but anyone who follows my work knows I scoff in the face of “bad light” – challenge accepted! The real challenge on J&K’s wedding day was the WIND. Dear Lord, was it ever windy! Luckily the outdoor ceremony was protected with wind screens, so the intimate 21-person nuptials went off without a hitch – and just a *little* veil swayage in the breeze 🙂 Luckily, the rest of the evening was in the wine CAVE – beautifully lit with candles (so yeah, not much available light here), but the ambience – especially once Daisy and Mickey from Daisy Rose Flowers got those amazing candlelit flower centerpieces up! Since this was a small destination wedding, the reception was more like an intimate dinner party – but that isn’t to say there weren’t moving speeches, tearful father/daughter & mother/son dances, and much laughter and joy. Congrats to this lovely couple – it was a long time coming, but I know you knew it would always lead to this day.
Here’s my favorite photos from Jerissa and Kyle’s wedding. Feel free to comment below!
