Anne & Dj - Yolanda Ranch, Woodland CA

Holly Molly what a wedding :) I’m in love with The Yolanda Ranch, What a perfect location. Anne and Dj meet at church and their love grow from there. This amazing, sweet, loving couple are truly in love.

When I asked Anne what her favorite part of her wedding was this is what she said “Hands down my favorite part of my wedding was having all of our favorite people in the same place at the same time. DJ and I had a moment at dinner to take everything in and watched our loved ones enjoying themselves. We felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude that they were all there to celebrate us.

When I also asked if she had any tips or recommendations for future brides, this is what she said “My tip for future brides would be to take in every moment because it goes by so quickly. Eat the amazing food, drink, dance, hug as many people as humanly possible and HAVE FUN!

Jullie & Kevin - Brix Napa, Ca

When a food blogger gets married, how could you not pick one of the best restaurants in Napa, CA

I asked Jullie what was her favorite part of the day this is what she said “My favorite part of the wedding was the actual ceremony...my dad crying while walking me down the aisle, our families taking part in the ceremony, and getting to do all of the traditional elements such as the veil and cord...it was all so profound and intimate. And I knew I’d have my best friend, love of my life, and best partner/teammate I could ever ask for by my side, forever. That is the best part. (But a close second would be all of the food at our reception! Lol Brix is so good!!!)

I also asked Jullie if she had any tips for future brides :) This is what she said “ Since I‘m also pregnant and I wanted my wedding to be as stress-free as possible, my tips are all about self-care and comfort! A) Don’t forget to eat. You might be worried about squeezing into your dress, but nobody wants a bride with low energy/blood sugar levels either. Especially if you have an afternoon ceremony like I did, make sure to fit a light, balanced lunch in beforehand! And hydrate with enough water, summer brides! B) Have comfy shoes ready for the reception! I wore flat sandals and it helped a ton. Once you’ve stood around taking photos and have done a bit of walking around different locations, your feet (and calves!) will thank you for the relief of flats. C) Remember to relax and enjoy your moment! It’s really easy to get swept up in the scheduling of it all—ceremony at 2, photos next, cocktail reception at x-oclock, then speeches, then first dances, etc., etc. Take a moment every now and then to take your own mental snapshots, breathe and be present, and feel gratitude for your special day!
