Nino & Kat’s wedding was breathtaking, romantic and just a damn good time. The kind of that wedding that fills you up with joy, love and excitement for the beautiful couple in front of you and just for love itself.
Fire and Earth
Every wedding, of course, starts with the couple. Nino and Kat are the ultimate yin/yang embodiment; She is a wild, energetic, ball of the deep, deep and she makes everyone feel like they are the inner circle – while he is a bit more serious, practical and of course #TheMostHandsomeManInTheWorld. He’s the guy holding the string and she is the balloon. Together they make the most amazing team. They met in a chance encounter; Kat was walking a client’s dogs when Nino came out of his house. The second time it happened, he chased her down the street to get her number – or so the story goes.
A Romantic Viansa Winery Wedding
The setting for this amazing celebration was the gorgeous Viansa Winery in Sonoma. I LOVE Viansa! From the fabulous crew (shout out to my girl Kristen Hardy, wedding planner extraordinaire!), to the breathtaking views and the dreamy grounds, no matter which way you turn, it’s just stunning! And of course it made the perfect backdrop for every amazing moment.
Yes to the Dress!
Then there was Kat’s stunning Vera Wang dress. I almost died every time I looked at her! She was a knock out and the dress was so perfectly fitting for her, for the venue, for the romance and for them. Swoon! Did I mention the veil? I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen such a free flowing, elegant veil. Love!
All the vendors at Nino and Kat’s wedding were incredible. The vibrant purple bouquets (and you know how I feel about purple!) were made by Anita Isaza from Wine Country Flowers. They matched Kat’s shoes, the groomsmen’s socks and of course the inner lining of Nino’s suit- how fun! The dessert table – well, I could have stayed there all night eating macaroons. Andrea Koweek, of Crisp Bakeshop, outdid herself on the cake and all the other goodies; they looked amazing and tasted even better than I hoped.
Dancing the Night Away
One of the best parts of every wedding is the dancing. Everyone is so full of joy, and it really came out here! Nino and Kat had the awesome local cover band Pop Fiction playing and everyone was boogied the night away. And when the couples favorite artist is Lionel Richie! Check out the epic pictures below for proof!
Congratulations, you two. It’s love like yours that makes the world go round. Thanks for letting me be part of your celebration; I wish you a lifetime of happily every after!
