Living about 20 miles southwest of the heart of the wine country and having a wedding-related biz, I've seen a lot of vineyards in my day. Viansa Winery in Sonoma California just happens to be one of my favorite places on earth. Situated on a slope just outside Sonoma proper, it boasts a panorama only John Steinbeck could narrate: Rolling, golden hills dappled in oak with mild temps year round. When this wedding came through my inbox I knew Ann and Tanner felt the same as I do about this lovely landscape. What a gorgeous celebration this was from the flowers to fashion, every bit of it fusing with the natural beauty of this very special place.

"Ann and Tanner chose Viansa Winery for its destination wedding feel, which also created a more intimate setting for their selective guest list of 50. Ann was quite a DIY bride – creating all of the floral arrangements and decor herself with the help of her family and friends! She gathered a lot of her inspiration from poking around Anthropologie stores and collecting vintage vases and just drawing from her own personal style. Their wedding colors were a palette of pale yellow, soft cream, and off-white, pairing perfectly with the soft lusciousness of the Sonoma County landscape."
