I walked away from Elizabeth and Matt’s Radonich Ranch wedding full of love and gratitude. Every wedding I shoot reminds me of how special having love and family in one’s life is, but this one stuck out. The outpouring of love, from family and friends for Elizabeth and Matt was astounding. I knew family the main priority when Elizabeth delayed the start of the wedding while  a search party was sent out for her grandparents who had made a wrong turn on the way to the ranch. She wouldn’t start without them, they had to be there. Grandparents of both Matt and Elizabeth spoke during the ceremony, reminding everyone how important love and family is in guiding our journeys in life. It was a beautiful ceremony- I don’t know that there was a dry eye by the end!

The colors and details of this wedding were sweet and fit in perfectly with the rustic appeal of Radonich Ranch. Elizabeth thought up the heart place cards with vintage photographs of her family to designate the tables- hung from twine with mini clothpins, they were really cute!

Marky of Vignette Events runs the show at Radonich Ranch and takes care of almost everything. She does the delicious food, linens, table flowers, and provides all the staff. She also happens to be one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I love that she does all she can to keep weddings green there- using local and organic produce when she can. She’s pretty much the best!

These folks know how to party! The celebration was jubilant- and the photo booth got a little wild!

Matt and Elizabeth- thank you for the honor of photographing your wedding! Enjoy your new home in New York!

Landmark Vineyards Kenwood Wedding Photographer : Sara and Jason

July 8th, 2010

Napa Area Wedding At Landmark Vineyards in Kenwood, CA. The wedding of Sara and Jason photographed by Lili Durkin. Air Plants, Succulent bouquets, custom shoes, bicycle motif, vineyard wedding.

 

Sara and Jason’s intimate Napa wedding at Landmark Vineyards in Kenwood, CA was one of my favorites. Sara and Jason not only chose a breathtaking venue, but also incorporated unique and personal touches which really made their day stand out to me. If you remember from their Marin Headlands Engagement Session, Jason is an avid biker. It was really sweet that they incorporated a bike motif on their menus and programs. These two are travel bugs- Sara had her shoes made in Argentina after discovering a shop there on one of their many travel adventures. Don’t get me started on the bouquets and placecards…. air plants and succulents?? BRILLIANT! Congrats you two! Thank you for the honor of photographing your day!
