Vine Hill House: A Quaint and Gorgeous Venue
The Vine Hill House is a vineyard located in sunny Sonoma, California. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite venues in the area. The winery is so quaint, quiet, but just absolutely gorgeous. The way the sun sets on the property just makes amazing images, as you can see below. The vineyard itself is actually quite big and makes a perfect evening view for your guests as they enjoy dinner in the grass.
As we were exploring the grounds, we were fortunate enough to work with a great videographer, who knew the property well. As the sun was setting and the sunlight turned golden, he showed us a perfect little nook in the front of the property that makes for stunning sunset photos. You can see the magic we created with these pictures towards the bottom of this blog. I’m pretty sure we got so excited about this little nook and the fantastic rim light that it provided, that we wore Wendy and Dave out taking so many pictures!
Wendy & Dave
Though the venue was gorgeous, the pictures wouldn’t be as gorgeous without a gorgeous couple of course!
Wendy and Dave decided that their wedding was going to be more intimate, rather than a wedding featuring a large party of guests.
They invited their close family and friends, planned it at a smaller venue, and wha-la! They had their perfect little wedding all planned out.
Now, a really popular timeline choice for wedding couples is to do a first look. This means that the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. Even though Dave was wowed by seeing his bride before the ceremony, it didn’t stop him from tearing up as she walked down the aisle at the ceremony a few hours later. This couple’s love absolutely amazed me, giving me butterflies.
Because this couple had such a spark, we had to close the night with a sparkler exit! Most venues don’t allow sparkler exits, but Vine Hill House does, and that is one of the many reasons I love this venue! Check out the amazing images we created below.
All in all, this wedding was quaint, yet full of love, sparks, and the joy of being reunited.
