Jessica and John's destination vineyard wedding was such fun to create.  The couple came in with a very strong vision for how they wanted their day to feel - a wedding ceremony followed by a reception that felt like a backyard party where they could hang out with their family and friends.  Once we came upon Sogno Del Fiore in the Santa Ynez Valley, everything else fell into place. Additionally, both Jessica and John felt very strongly about keeping sustainability in mind as we planned their details. So, in lieu of traditional floral centerpieces, fresh planted herbs were placed on each table and at the end of the night, guests were encouraged to take them home and plant them in their own gardens.  At the end of the evening, watching their guests gather around the fire pit to re-live the day, my heart soared as I knew we had stayed true to their vision, and they had had the best day of their lives.
