Day One | Carrie + Mike | Rehearsal

Are you ready!?  Hold on because you're about to take a 4 day journey, through 2 counties with countless cases of wine emptied. This is Carrie & Mike's wine country destination wedding celebration!!  My beloved Ohio couple (make note of the Ohio for later) who have been planning this mega fun week for over a year and it was so exciting to finally have it arrive.


We started day one with some wine tasting and a property tour at the sprawling Cline Cellars in Sonoma.  As I now look back at the photos, I recall how on the first day I only had a faint grasp of who was who as the friends and family filed off the shuttle bus, but by the end of day three I had nearly every name and relation down pat.  I seriously miss them all.

The Cline property is beautiful and the wines delightful, but honestly I'd go just to see the two resident donkeys!  Such cuties!!

Next stop was just across the street at the impressively grand Jacuzzi Winery!


And we rounded off our day in the picturesque town of St. Helena, the location of their Harvest Inn wedding rehearsal.

Stay tuned for Day Two! (Napa wineries & rehearsal dinner)
