Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma
Buena Vista Winery is the oldest winery in Sonoma, California. Its rich history and stone buildings make you feel like you are in Italy. From the lush hills of northern California, with the fields of vineyards, Sonoma, California is such a charming place.
After living in the Sonoma area for a few months, I knew I wanted to organize an inspiration shoot. I wanted it to display how you can incorporate bright, bold colors into your winery wedding. From fun, exotic florals, to cactuses, and fruit, this inspiration shoot came together better than I could have imagined!
I reached out to Buena Vista and they graciously wanted to collaborate on bringing my vision to life. Let me tell you, this winery and the people who work there are the most friendly people ever! The stunning chairs, table and place settings came from Bright Event Rentals. Bright is honestly one of the best rental companies I’ve ever worked with! Not only are their products great, but they are so amazing to work with! The morning of the shoot, Shelby from White Cat Weddings
and I drove into San Francisco. We chose the florals from the San Francisco Flower Mart. If you haven’t been to the Flower Mart yet, definitely make it a priority to go. It was such a fun experience being surrounded by so many amazing florals! Shelby worked her magic and made one of the most incredible bouquets I have ever seen in my entire life! The colorful cactuses came from a little shop. We stumbled on the shop while exploring San Francisco. I thought they were so fun and had to include them in the shoot! The incredible dress is a Watters gown from Starlet Bridal in Santa Rosa, California! The delicate detail and soft grey color of the gown brought the perfect amount of neutral tones. It helped even out all the colors.
Old and New Friends
The models for this shoot are actually friends of mine from Kentucky. They happened to be living in the Bay Area at the same time as me! I had the honor of being in their wedding 7 years ago, so it was fun to have them step back into the role of bride & groom! They are naturals at modeling, aren’t they?!
I’m so looking forward to the wedding I’m photographing here in October! I’m also looking forward to the weddings, in the future, I’ll have the chance to capture at this lovely winery!
