Oh the beauty of Sonoma! K & B’s Westerbeke Ranch wedding was a wonderful celebration. It was undoubtedly sweet and soulful, relaxing and loads of fun. Located in Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon, Westerbeke Ranch is a fabulous retreat when you need to escape the chaos of the city. It’s just an hour outside of San Francisco. It’s not only a beautiful place to rest and relax but it makes for a great venue when you want to host an intimate outdoor wedding.
Set against the backdrop of rolling grassland and natural beauty, Westerbeke Ranch really is unique. California’s oak trees are magnificent and they are one of my favorite ceremony backdrops. K & B stood below a great oak and committed to spending their lives together. Gorgeous paper cranes hung from the oak, creating a really romantic setting. A tea ceremony honored their parents and bubbles greeted them as they made their way up the aisle.
As guests gathered in the garden for cocktail hour I was amazed at just how beautiful their reception looked. Set around the swimming pool, the veranda was a lovely setting to dine while the sun began to fade. The flower arrangements were made up of succulents with a mix of bold and bright colors and lots of texture. They made a beautiful statement. The whole setting was as romantic as it was lovely and I truly enjoyed my time getting to assist photographing K & B’s beautiful day.
