Today I am so happy to look back at Jocelyne and Daniel‘s 2013 Sonoma wedding. Last week, this charming event was featured on Style Me Pretty! It was one of my very favorite weddings of the year…I loved every minute of working with this Southern family, especially Jocelyne and her father, who took on a bigger role in planning than most fathers of the brides do! It was a true pleasure to put together an event for this couple, and for the guests that all traveled to California mostly from Nashville and Charlotte. Small destination weddings can be challenging — I only met everyone in person the day before the wedding! But Jocelyne and her dad trusted me when they handed over all their hard work booking vendors and Kunde Estate, and I was honored to take it from there. This wedding weekend was filled with sweet Southern accents, hospitality, faith, tradition, affection, and love love love. It was simply perfect for Jocelyne and Daniel.
The photo above is of Jocelyne and Daniel saying hello via FaceTime to Daniel’s grandparents, who couldn’t make the trip to California. I had to include this shot because I thought it was one of the sweetest moments of the day. Next to a surprise father/daughter dance on the hilltop at Kunde, of course. There’s no way I can post all the photos that made this wedding special…the love notes, open gratitude, prayers and blessings, Kentucky bourbon, preppy lawn games…so many love-filled moments. It was a wonderful day!
