I am honored Devon & Ducky chose me as their wedding photographer for their enchanting wine cave wedding. Ducky has worked for a number of exceptional photographers over the years, so for her and her husband to choose me to capture their wedding among that crowd of talent was pretty high praise!
Additionally, Ducky and I have been friends and co-workers for quite a few years now. Ducky is not only a wonderful person, but she is also my favorite makeup artist who helps me enhance the features of all my female clients before I photograph them. It was honestly a special treat for me to get to photograph her and her husband’s marriage!
Devon & Ducky’s Wine Cave Wedding In Sonoma, California
Sonoma Wine Cave Wedding Venue
This vampire themed, wine cave wedding was photographed at B. Wise Estate in Sonoma, California. This private venue is the home of the vineyards owners, Rhonda and John and was a truly an enchanting place for a small elopement style ceremony.
The grounds of the residence were truly breathtaking. Borrowing design influence from their travels in Italy and Provence, the residence is not only comfortable, but also seamlessly blends the boundaries between the outdoor and indoor spaces.
Walking out back behind the residence, there is beautiful landscaping littered with sculpture art. There was also a bocce ball court and inviting seating area intended to host wine socials. At the fringes of the courtyard there are 2 overlooks that offer a birds eye view of the Sonoma valley.
Past the rear courtyard, nestled into the side of a mountain sits the estates wine cave. The cave is artfully decorated and includes many rustic features unique among the wine caves I’ve been in. Walking though the cave to the other side leads to yet another overlook. This vantage point not only lords over the estates vineyard, but it also showcases the best view of Sonoma Valley I’ve yet experienced in my 8 years living here.
Dramatic Cavern Wedding
Ducky and Devon both really appreciate the dark and edgy look that you might have noticed in many of the wedding photos I show in my portfolio. They thought my dramatic style would pair well with their vision of a vampire themed cavern wedding.
Both of them gave me a very long leash capture their wedding however I wanted. I chose to do a mix of posed formals for the getting ready and couples portraits. The ceremony and intimate reception that followed was captured photojournalisticlly. The result is the wedding album shown above.
If you love the way this elopement wedding turned out, and you’re looking for a wedding photographer to capture your wine cave wedding in the Sonoma valley, you can contact me here. I’d love to discuss your wedding plans with you and your partner if you are looking to have your ceremony here or even if you’d prefer a Napa wine cave wedding at a different venue.
