New England Meets Somoma Private Estate

This Healdsberg Private Estate shoot was located atop hills in the the Sonoma County, a beautiful location for a wedding. We worked with an amazing team – planned by LVL Events and designed by Shannon with Cargo Creative. Florals were by Natasha Kolenko and Amy Kuschel designed the beautiful wedding gown!

Ashley from LVL Events on the inspiration behind our Healdsberg Private Estate shoot: “We were inspired by the venue – its stunning home, miles of rolling vineyards, and the hillside privacy. It reminded us of a New England vacation home which gave us the inspiration to design an entire wedding weekend and not just the wedding itself. The sophistication of the East Coast paired with the relaxed luxury of wine country was the theme. The color palette mixed moody shades of blue, pops of pink and fuchsia, all against crisp white.”

This Healdsberg hilltop private estate is available for a vacation rental or a select few weddings per year and has the option of a personal chef.  There are three houses on the property for guests to stay.  The forest is manicure and well kept up.  The open spaces are surrounded by fruit orchards, vineyards and redwood trees.

Greengate Wedding Styled by Crosby & Jon

As a purveyor of the finest private estates to host gatherings, the estate at Greengate Ranch and Vineyard has been masterfully planned and designed to be not only the hottest private estate on the central coast, but with the most stunning 360 degree views atop the hill it sits.  The property is within close proximity to the center of San Luis Obispo, and yet right in the heart of wine country, surrounded by vineyards and green fields of fresh produce to the north.  I love documenting this location.  Crosby & Jon did an incredible job styling this Greengate wedding shoot as well as everyone else who collaborated.

{ Jeff + Megan : Part I }

Jeff and Megan are the sweetest, most in love couple you’ll meet. They met in college when Jeff was attending Stanford University & Megan was attending Santa Clara University.  Four years later he whisked her to Barcelona and proposed on their anniversary. Growing up in Sonoma, Megan always knew that she wanted to have her wedding reception at a winery, and as soon as they started discussing wedding venues, she knew it had to be Chateau St. Jean. As the planning began, they knew they wanted great music and a fun party for their family and friends, with beautiful floral decor by Sharla Flock Floral Designs. All this was planned and executed by the fabulous Dee Merz. I know you are going to enjoy this gorgeous wedding, tucked away in a beautiful part of the Napa Valley and Sonoma wine country region.
