Because we live in Southern California and getting married in Sonoma, we had to seek our photographer without meeting him/her in person until the day of our wedding at the winery. We found Briana through Project Wedding, and connected with her demeanor immediately! She was extremely easy to work with, very accessible, and was exactly the type of photographer we were seeking for our wedding day- laid-back and fun to be around! More importantly, Briana made everything we requested work- including an impromptu session in the winery's boxing ring and one including their resident ceramic cow.
We just received our pictures, and have gotten huge compliments from everyone about the quality of the images, and most especially around her ability to capture our personalities and the feel of the day. I am extremely pleased to have a body of work that shows the laughter and fun we had on one of the most important days of our lives, and would absolutely recommend Briana in a heartbeat!!

Corinne did hair for my four bridesmaids, 3 mothers, and my hair and makeup for my wedding. She was fantastic! Very friendly and easy to work with, and frankly, a lot of fun. We did one trial ahead of the wedding at the Powder Room, and she came to the hotel for the actual day. I was given copious compliments on how I looked- and I have to give her great big kudos for making sure my makeup stayed on and wasn't overly heavy. She made me look like me- but a million times better! Thanks Corinne, you totally rock!

Easy to work with, knew our location of Kunde Winery (see separate review) very well. All five drivers we used (one for the rehearsal and four for the day of) were on time, very professional, and efficient! Exactly what you look for on two very busy days.

I purchased my Giselle dress from Kirstie Kelly and had a fantastic experience. Erin, who is the fashion director, is absolutely fantastic and is one of the friendliest and most fun individuals I dealt with during the entire wedding process. The studio also works with an independent seamstress, Anne, who was fabulous and took the dress from spectacular to stunning. Both were great to work with and gave me plenty of tips and advice that were well taken during my wedding weekend.
We found Melissa at Just A Mom Confections by looking at pictures at one of the wineries we considered for our wedding. Melissa has a great range of flavors, and her cupcakes were one of the biggest hits of our wedding! They were moist, flavorful, and we nearly were flattened by our guests in their attempts to grab cupcakes off of our cupcake table (all of which were eaten, despite ordering a healthy extra!). Melissa's chocolate with a nutella center and frangelico frosting is out of this world (then again so were our red velvet and vanilla with lemon curd cupcakes)! She is extremely price reasonable, very easy to work with, and ultra dependable. We would recommend her in a heartbeat, and frankly, next time we're in Sonoma, would go searching them out!
Bryce was recommended to us by Preferred Sonoma Caterers (see separate review) for our rehearsal, reception, and personal flowers. Although we never met in person and only spoke on the phone (I live in SoCal), Bryce completely knocked it out of the ballpark! The flowers delivered to us were absolutely gorgeous and he is fantastic about being flexible and working within a budget. We were extremely pleased with all of his creations!

We had our reception in Kunde's Wine Caves and our reception at Boot Hill. The settings available are stunning and spectacular, and the team (Stephanie and Naomi) is a pleasure to work with. We chose this location not only because of the uniqueness, but also because they made us feel special, unlike some of the other places we considered in Sonoma where they have weddings nearly every weekend. All of our guests have raved and shared spectacular pictures from our event; we would absolutely recommend Kunde, the staff, and their wines (!) in a heartbeat.

We were extremely pleased to work with Amber and her team at PCS! They provided our rehearsal dinner and also our reception at Kunde Winery (See separate review), and Amber also doubled as our day of coordinator. They were very easy to work with, ultra professional, and made our wedding day one of the easiest, most relaxed days we could ask for. They also were fabulous about working with our catering requests (East Carolina BBQ is hard to come by in Sonoma!), including incorporating our recipes and traditions into what became two very, very memorable dinners! Nearly every single guest has given us feedback that the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding, which for a foodie like myself is the best feedback one could ask for!
