I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but this wedding will forever be a favorite of mine! Vlada + Shawn got married at Cline Cellars, a family owned winery in Sonoma. If you have ever driven from San Francisco to wine country, chances are you have driven by Cline Cellars.
A wedding at Cline Cellars was an obvious choice for these two – their ceremony was held just steps away from where Shawn proposed. Cline Cellars was one of their favorite Sonoma wineries before they got married, so it was a natural choice for Shawn to pick it as their engagement spot. Beautiful large trees shade the outdoor tasting areas and grapevines surround the property line. White buildings are scattered throughout the grounds and big, beautiful ponds sit by picnic areas.
Vlada has a natural eye for design, which was evident in the design of the wedding. Every detail was meticulously thought out, from the personalized wine corks to the engraved ring box to the cigar lounge during the reception. The details were breathtaking, but what really shone through was who was invited to share this day with them. After initially planning a large wedding, Vlada and Shawn decided to instead only invite their closet friends and family. The intimacy of the wedding and the mutual connection among the guests, loving Shawn and Vlada, brought an extra special energy to this beautiful spring day!
When Vlada walked down the aisle with her mom, there was not a dry eye amongst the group! I teared up as she gave her mom a huge hug and walked over to Shawn, who was beaming. Vlada was absolutely breathtaking.
Thank you so much Shawn & Vlada to having me there to capture your day! What a perfect day it was.
