During one of our busiest weekends in 2016, we flew off to San Francisco and drove two hours northwest to the edge of Guerneville in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. Our destination? Dawn Ranch Lodge and all the lovely humans who’d be staying there for the weekend. No matter how many times we’ve visited California, it never fails to greet us with the best light and a healthy dose of that laid back west coast vibe. And thankfully, the traffic gods were good to us that day.
This is what happens when you get two wonderful people together up for a bit of adventure, the people who love them, a redwood forest, and heaps more in wine country.
Many intense rounds of cornhole. Arms wrapped around each other to symbolize an unbreakable bond and to celebrate the people who hold you up. A slick vintage whip and riding through the redwoods. Your unconventional (floral) wedding dress. Heel clicks and grandparents ripping up the dance floor. Kisses for days, weeks, years, lifetimes. Delicious cuts of Super 8mm film.
Thanks for all that you are, as you are, Jessica and Andrew.
