Rustic California Ceremony at an Estate Vineyard

Watching the 49ers playoff game at a local dive bar called Double Play in San Francisco is where Steven and Laura met; they were celebrating a mutual friend’s birthday. 4 years later, after an evening of delicious food and dancing in Rome, is when Steven proposed, and they celebrated over tiramisu and prosecco before sharing the news with their families. Just like their engagement, their wedding was just as beautiful. Inspired by rustic and natural landscapes, it was their goal to keep it simple so they could capture some of the beautiful “magic hour” vibes in the California mountains to create a warm and inviting space for guests. Laura not only adored the long garland that framed the ceremony site, she also wore her grandmother’s cocktail ring to honor her as she wasn’t able to attend the wedding. Steven, who is passionate about woodworking, created a large Connect Four board for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. That passion doesn’t stop there, as Steven’s brother, Brian, made a corn hole set for the couple, too. Steven and Laura’s advice to future couples planning their wedding is simple: “Enjoy this time in your relationship, and don’t sweat the small stuff! There’s also no bad time to drink the champagne you’re gifted for your engagement!”

Steven and Laura were married on October 6, 2018 in Livermore, California!

One thought on “Rustic California Ceremony at an Estate Vineyard

  1. Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
