On the most beautiful Sonoma day, Jessica + Will tied the knot at The Ramekins Culinary School, surrounded by their closest family and friends. We feel so lucky to have gotten to celebrate with them, and can’t wait for them to take on the world as they finally get to live in the same city together!
Jessica wore a tulle Vera Wang wedding dress along with gold Jimmy Choo wedding shoes. Will wore a navy suit with black lapels, and a bow tie that matched perfectly with his Gucci dress shoes. Will also wore his Apple watch, so when he checked his heart rate, we saw that it peaked just as we announced he was about to see his bride!
When it was finally time for these two to see each other, Will waited for Jessica on the deck of the General’s Daughter restaurant on the Ramekins property. The General’s Daughter had beautiful white shiplap walls and windows all around with rustic wood flooring. Will anxiously awaited his bride on one end as Jessica walked up behind him and gave him a tap on the shoulder. They were both speechless at first, but the silence was quickly followed by a lot of emotion, happy giggles, and tears of happiness. Jessica and Will shared some stories from the beginning part of both of their days, and laughed with one another before having some portraits taken of them and then having their bridal party join in.
The ceremony was outdoors in the courtyard, filled with family and friends anxiously awaiting the arrival of Jessica and Will. As Will watched his bride walk down the aisle, tears began to well up in his eyes, and the emotion continued to intensify for the entirety of the ceremony. The couple exchanged personal vows they had written, that highlighted their infectious laughter, their endless love for music festivals, and the hurdles they’ve overcome as a team. The ceremony was sealed with the first kiss as husband and wife as the crowd cheered in celebration!
After the ceremony, we stole the newlyweds for some more portraits just before the sunset. The property had beautiful lush greenery, stone walls, wooden rustic doors, and the golden light we forever chase – making portraits a dream!
The couple enjoyed dinner outdoors with their closest family and friends, as everyone toasted to their new chapter! Once dinner was finished though, came the part of the day that the couple had been anxiously awaiting all along – party time!!! Will and Jessica, along with their entire bridal party, broke out into a choreographed dance routine to open up the dance floor – and never left the dance floor for the rest of the night!
It was a beautiful day, with an even more beautiful couple. Congratulations Jessica + Will!
