victoria + frank: romantic outdoor vow ceremony with puppies down the aisle at The Barlow in Sebastopol, California
this wedding does it for me, on so many levels.
a star/country crossed love between two world travelers that led them to have ceremonies at the San Francisco Courthouse, at the grooms home in Amsterdam + finally in Northern California at The Barlow for their vow ceremony in front of friends and family and pups.
Guests flew in from, quite literally, all over the world to celebrate. Victoria and Frank did a traditional tea ceremony in the early afternoon, followed by getting ready for their western part of the days festivities. All of the flowers were put together by the bride and her sisters along with the cute details in the cocktail hour space + reception site. Takeaway gifts were homemade limoncello from the bride and groom. The brides dogs were an important part of the day for the bride and were dressed for the occasion, Sofie in a handmade tutu + Cham-Gae stunning in a bowtie. A very sweet first look took place on a bridge in the forest and the ceremony, officiated by a friend took place on the grounds by the famous tree at The Barlow with dinner + dancing into the night.
Lots of beautiful details + moments + happy times.
