This beautiful wedding was held at Barndiva in downtown Healdsburg, California in the heart of Sonoma County wine country. The bride’s hair was styled by Brush Salon.
We began a few blocks away from the square at the bride’s rental cottage. It was a simple place, but perfect for some shots of her getting ready and a few bridal portraits under some gnarled olive trees. Then, as we strolled to the town square to meet Cory, we stopped to snap some shots along the way. I just remember how bright everything was. Not just the sunny skies, but also the giggling wedding party. Bright seemed to be the theme of the day.
After meeting up with the groom and the rest of the family, the couple and I explored the town by stopping to take portraits in front of murals, gardens, and we even ventured inside an antique shop. Downtown Healdsburg is the perfect place for a wedding if you are going for a mix of rustic character with elegant luxury, and that is exactly the wedding that Jen and Cory got this June. The ceremony and reception was at Barndiva. A place that provided creative rustic decor, great food, and high end art as a backdrop for special weddings like this one.
I have to admit that I was pretty exhausted at the end of this wedding. But that’s a good thing. We did so much exploring of town to find the best hidden places to shoot. And in the end, this couple got a collection of images that celebrated the country, the city, elegance and tradition, but most of all their marriage.
Congrats Jen and Cory!
