John proposed to Maddie on the beach in Cape May, so it makes perfect sense…
We love when engaged couples decide to get married in their own backyards. The result is always something wonderfully personal and impossible to duplicate. In this case, the bride’s family summer home in Sonoma County, Calif., played venue for a day, and what a spot! Meanwhile, the event design by San Francisco-based Kristi Amoroso Special Events more than lived up to the magical, sun-laced wine country setting.
According to the planner, the bride’s family tamed a wildly overgrown meadow on their property for the bucolic ceremony space. For dinner and dancing, our CA rental provider Zephyr Tents installed a fully floored 66′ x 86′ Sperry Tent behind the house, overlooking the hills. The tent’s interior design was exceptional, picking up on the natural beauty all around via potted trees at the base of center poles, linen runners, and garden-style floral arrangements.
