Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful wedding in California's Sonoma Valley for my friends Zach and Geri. It was small, only 70 people, and had a wonderful sense of intimacy about it. Small weddings are like that -- as a guest you feel privileged to be one of few to witness the lifetime commitment a couple makes; you literally "feel the love." As the bride and groom, you're surrounded by just your nearest and dearest -- plus, you can talk to all of them and still have time to eat and dance!
This couple focused on the details. Handmade signs and a gorgeous hand-crafted birch ceremony structure were just a few of their special touches. Country music (my fave!), a mouth-watering appetizer spread of California cheeses and juicy fruit, and a deliciously edited buffet of chicken, tri-tip, orzo salad, and fresh grilled summer veggies, sealed the deal. Simple yet elegant, everything this pair did was done to perfection. See below for a gallery of some of their pictures by photographer Musa Zaid:
