Vanessa and Craig's Jacuzzi wines wedding took place on a gorgeous spring afternoon in Carneros, a narrow coastal strip that shares a bit of Napa and Sonoma counties and is well renowned for its sparkling wines. The big day could not have come soon enough for the young medical professionals who had just recently made the long move from Boston to Seattle and could not wait for a bit of down time. The wedding reconnected Vanessa with her Bay Area roots and brought so many of the great friends she and Craig have made along the way for a combined, destination wine-country wed-cation. Beneath their cool and casually goofy exteriors, Craig and Vanessa also happen to be wicked smart; he is established in the internal medicine community and she is currently completing her residency in dermatology.
Before greeting their guests for their Jacuzzi wedding ceremony, the couple met up for a first look and some portraits around the Cline cellars property across the road. It was important for the couple to join cocktail hour, so they chose to do all the family photos prior to the ceremony. With a long list of important family and bridal party photos, they took to the task with ease and humor. Their ceremony in the courtyard at Jacuzzi took place right as the sun dipped behind the piazza. The guests were immersed into the couples loving and silly energy, and everyone joined in the laughs and the tears. After it was official, the guests enjoyed passed apps by Elaine Bell Catering overlooking Jacuzzi's vineyard in the golden light. The dinner and speeches took place in the Piazza. Love overflowed in each speech, and it was clear the couple was surrounded by many huge fans, who came from near and far to their Sonoma destination wedding. The reception moved into the barrel room, where the couple and their guests boogied down to the sounds of AMS Entertainment, sipping Jacuzzi wines, snacking on sliders and celebrating this amazing couple.
